Pours a light honey-like golden with an exuberant head that falls to nice lacing, The smell is an explosion of citrusy hops. The flavor is in-your-face grapefruit, with peaches and even a bit of white grape juice on the finish. The bitterness is mild and highlights the citrus character of the aroma hops. The mouthfeel is decent, but strangely lacking in carbonation bite. Overall a good IPA, though perhaps a little too delicate for the current standard of West Coast type IPAs.

Presentation: 12 oz bottle. Odell's latest offering in 6 packs - this one will be available year round according to the brewers website. Nice bottles and labels to fit in with Odell's other offerings - great labels and marketing. Plenty of information too - ABV, best by date, beer description.

Appearance: Clear reddish orange color with a nice thick head, good retention and lacing.

Smell: Huge whiff of grassy hops as I poured. Piney resinous hops, some grassy aroma. Definitely hop dominated - smells great.

Taste: Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Hops come across more as bitterness here than hop flavor. Nice balance of malt and hops without being over powering.

Overall impression: Highly drinkable - dangerous at 7 %. Looking forward to trying this a few more times as it hits the local market. Great aromatic hops, nicely balanced beer.

The pours is mostly clear and a pale golden color with a full finger foamy white head that resists fading. A fair amount of lacing left behind. The smell is aggressive grassy, piny hop with a resin character. Adequately carbonated, the mouth feel is primarily tangy from the hops and the piny character lingers in an oily resin texture. Full flavored, the taste is a real shot in the arm. The pine grapefruit flavor is quite refreshing. The 7% ABV is integrated well. A real nice drinker. Thank you drumrboy22 for the opportunity to sample this one.

Thanks to mmtmatrix for this brew.

12oz. brown bottle poured into an imperial pint. I'm assuming a drink by date is etched in the corner but all I can make out is "xx xx 08".

A: Pours a golden light orange with perfect visibility. 1 1/2 fingers of eggshell head form and has a bit of staying power. Some decent lacing down the sides.

S: Just like an IPA should, IMHO. Big juicy citrus notes and a touch of sapping pine. A bit floral but all about the juicy sweet citrus. Malts add a slight touch of sweetness but nothing bold.

T/M: Hops add a nice kick with plenty of bitterness. Juicy citrus but not as sweet as I had expected. A nice bit of phenols play with the spicy, peppery pine. Malts rush in and balance the hop bitterness out very nicely while beefing the body up with some creaminess.

D: Tasty brew that I wouldn't mind having again. Bitterness is definitely there in this single IPA so maybe just a couple at a time.
