Had last weekend in Omaha.

A: Pours a clear gold color with a nice, one-finger eggshell colored head. Nice lacing down the glass.

S: Light pine aroma with a good dose of grapefruit and citrus.

T: A good pine hop flavor upfront balanced by some a malt flavor that has both caramel and bready aspects. Very well balanced. A really solid IPA.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass (half pint, half snifter)
From: Wilbur’s Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo.
Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99
Purchased: May 2, 2013
Consumed: May 2, 2013
Misc.: Best by Aug. 14, 2013

Poured a copper orange clear color with about 2-3 fingers of foamy white head. Lots of bubbles underneath. Tons of circular foamy lacing on the sides. Fantastic retention on the top the whole way down.

Smelled fantastic with mainly floral and citrus hops. Also got grapefruit and tangerine. Slight bitterness, but not overwhelming. Some light notes of lemon, lime and pine.

Tasted pretty close to the smell, but maybe not as strong. Immediately reminded me of a Manzanita IPA. Lemon more than grapefruit. Faint butter notes. Floral notes are noticeable as well. Very good overall.

Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

Really enjoyed my second beer from Odells. I will be back for more.

Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (355ml, £3.50):
Light amber. Small, bubbly white head that halves to be about 0.5cm tall.

Very hoppy with strong tropical fruit and citrus notes., There is a good amount of pine and a solid, light caramel malt base underneath.

Very hoppy taste to begin with although it's not as strong as before. The main flavour is a tropical fruit one that is infused with some citrus and pine as well as fresh hops and some more subdued, sweet malts with touches of light caramel. There is some lemon around the middle and a pleasant grapefruit taste too, along with a hugely bitter finish.

Smooth with big carbonation. There was a slight citrus tang in the middle but overall the beer was surprisingly refreshing.

Great hop and tropical fruit tastes with plenty of bitterness yet still seemed refreshingly drinkable and very enjoyable. Up there with some of the better IPA's I've tried thus far.

I am a newbie in the art of tasting craft beer.

I've got to say that this beer amazed me the first time I tasted it.

The smell is delicious, very fresh and hoppy.

The taste, oh my god, the taste feels so good! It's very clean and pure, hoppy, citrus flavor. Very easy to pass through. I like to burp and feel the hops on my throat/mouth
