A - light, golden straw color

S - Citrusy with mild pine notes

T- This is where it can't be beat. Citrus, pine. Bold, West Coast style. This is up there with Pilny the Elder with me.

M- For an IPA, the mouthfeel can't be beat.

I really love this beer. This and Union Jack are my go to IPAs on a regular basis. And for me, it really stands toe to toe with the best rated IPAs/DIPAs on this site.

Got this as an extra in a trade with Bennetj17. Cheers to ya!

My Tonto Sam Adams glass was dirty and had a crusty yogurt spoon in it, and I was lazy, so this went directly in a big Tripel Karmeliet goblet. Sue me!

I want to get back to drinking this so I'll be brief: I really like Odell IPA. Looks great, big poofy head on a clear eyed brew, smells fun and well done, with loads of hop character balanced out to smooth, fruity apricot perfection, tastes wonderful, cool, hoppy-minty, spicy, sweet, generously malted, harmonious, fully delightful from a bold start to semi-bitter sticky end, wet and dare I say gulpable... this is the real deal, folks! Should be in the BA top ten in my righteous opinion.

I want more. More I say!

The 2nd beer I've ever had from this brewer. Picked up a 6 pack of this tonight for a mere $8.
Poured from the bottle into a pub glass, producing about an inch and a half of white froth and bubbles.
Slow to fall down and sitting for some time. Finally leaving a solid cap of assorted bubbles and a bit of froth with an even thicker collar.
Sticky, never lettin' go cling of lace lines the glass walls.
The beer is a transparent darker golden color.

Aroma is bursting at the seems with hops. Pinneaple, sweet juicy, just bit into a mango and the juices flow down my chin, like aromas. Some mild pine and bittering too with hemp and dank weed. But mostly a tropical fruit frenzy of hops.
A little malt too, which is surprising. In comes in the form of a buttery bread sweet caramel.

Mouthfeel is fuller with moderate carbonation and a light fluffy feel.

Taste contains the exact same flavors mirroring the aroma. Its a tropical fruit festival of hops. Just a bit of bittering into the swallow and lingering with mild rind. So its mostly sweet juicy hops, keeping drinkability very high on the 'keep it coming, not bittering' hops.
Floral flavors too with a touch of minty leaf.

God this is absolutely splendid. One of the better ipa's I've had in a good while. Its not that its better then others either. Its just that its a a take on the style that I cant say I've experienced before. Sure it shares similarities to other ipa's, but this one is different. Different in a good way too. Drinkability is high, as this is not very bitter and the pallet is given time to recover. Truly an inspiration to the kind of beer I want to brew. Highly recommend.

Into a pint glass, pours a cloudy orangish straw yellow color with a nice white head and decent lacing. The aroma is heavily hoppy, as is the taste, nice citrus qualities, not very shy, not very complex, but still pretty enjoyable. The body is pretty good, as is carbonation. In all, nothing bad about it, nothing too exciting, just a pretty good regional IPA.

A_Pours a bronze hue with a big frothy off white head. Lots of bubbles stick around throughout.

S_Big piney, citric and rich hops dominate while allowing just a pinch of lightly toasted malt to come through.

T_Perfectly rich piney, citric and slightly sopay hops dominate throughout. A nice does of that same toasted malt gives this a slight sweetness in the middle which manages to keep the affair from being one sided. The finish is nice pure hop bitterness leaving traces of pine resin. As the brew warms the citric hop notes come to the forefront moreso than the pine. Not sure what mix of hops were used but it works.

M_Medium bodied with a slightly aggresive carbonation works perfectly with the oily hop quality here.

D_Wow, a top notch excellent IPA. The style may be overdone but this is one that truly shines.
