Poured a 12oz bottle into my Chimay chalice. This beer pours a burnt orange color with a big 2 inch white fluffy head that mellows into a lily pad on the top of the beer. Only mild lacing is present as the beer recedes. The aroma is fresh squeezed orange juice, grapefruit and what seemed almost like tart green apples followed up by just a hint of malty sweetness. This beers aroma is one of the fruitiest that I have ever had the pleasure of quaffing. The taste is strong orange notes with mild grapefruit tartness and just a hint of pine. It's very balanced between the hops and the malt backbone but I was expecting a little more hop bite at the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and resiny, leaving a nice coating in your mouth. Odell's makes some of the most superb beers on the market and this one is right up there with their best.

A: Medium to light gold in color, patches of frothy foam, crystal clear, some resiny lines along the edge of the glass - 4.25, S: Pine really is the dominate smell, a touch of freshly cut grass - 4.25, T: Lots of hop bite as well as some pine and grapefruit zest, slight caramel flavors on the tongue - 4.00, M: Lacks carbonation which gives it a slightly watery feel - 3.25, D: A very pleasing IPA, quite traditional and one I'd glad drink again - 4.00

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by 12/05/12C.

A - Dark amber body with one finger high off white head. Thick lacing and retention.

S - Peach juice dominant with some pine and very sweet malts. Somewhat grassy and grainy.

T - Great balance of flavors. Equal does of peach, citrus, pine, and grass with a light bitterness. A little bit of crackery and sweet malt on the finish. Only deterrent here is the alcohol is noticeable. Mouth feel is medium bodied with nice carbonation.

O - A very nice IPA. I can feel the alcohol a tad, but the flavors and aromas are very nice and hoppy. Reminds me a lot of Firestone Walker Union Jack but with some grassy notes.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12 oz bottle to pint glass.

A - Crystal clear gold translucent with a slightly off-white head. Not hazy in the least bit. Head lasts a good while with nice lacing.

S - Perfumy hop aromas! Grapefruit, orange, and floral in character.

T - Citrus flavors carry over to the initial taste. Very nice variety of floral and citrus hops. Bitterness follows as it blends with a slightly spicy note. Incredibly smooth and well balanced though hops dominate.

M - Very smooth with nice carbonation.

D - Very drinkable IPA. Unlike so many IPA's that are overloaded with hop flavors, aroma, and bitterness, I found this be quite right.

One of the better IPAs I've had. I would strongly recommend it.
