One of my very favorite American IPAs.

Look: Pours honey golden color with a bone white soapy 2 finger head that dissipates quickly leaving lots of lacing

Smell: Aroma of citrusy hops up front, particularly pineapple &grapefruit.

Taste: Delicious and refreshing. Up front with orange, lemon, and pine notes. Hoppy bitterness up front (not sweet at all) with a dry alcohol finish. Enough malt to balance but not overwhelm the hoppiness. Great work Odell!

Feel: Mildly carbonated, some burn on the back of the tongue. Coating is light and refreshing. It does not linger. After a minute or so you can experience the flavor again with a fresh drink from the glass. High ABV for an IPA(vs IIpa) - well disguised apart from a little burn on the finish. Refresing enough to be a Session IPA but be forewarned, it is NOT a session IPA!

The king of the hill!...The Lord of the Realm!...One IPA to rule them all!!!...Sorry to go all nerdy but this is probably my favorite American IPA.

I won't waste much time talking about its flavor because it just needs to be tried, but it strikes a perfect balance between sweet and bitter and has alot of Grapefruit and orange rind with some piney effects on the tongue. Look, Taste, Smell, and Feel are all rated at 5...but I have to mark it down on Overall because its always more expensive than the other IPAs on the shelf by a few dollars on average...not that it shouldn't be, but still. This is the quintessential American IPA rivaled only by a few (like Firestone).

Fresh hops and an expert hand yields a piney brew with all the great fresh hoppy notes you want in an IPA without all the unwanted aftertaste that a lot of the time comes with an IPA. The label artwork is pretty neat also, very appreciative of breweries that put effort into proper advertisement of their brand. Would drink again 10/10 times.

Pours a light coppery golden with a bone froth atop the clear brew.
Aroma has a strong piney resinous note similar to Rampant DIPA from their neighbor.
The hops pack a wallop but the sweet malt fights back achieving a nice balance. It is amazing how balanced this beer tastes yet the hops sustain a steady bitterness and very flavorful pine throughout the finish.
There is a medium carbonation and medium body. Oily and coating hop resins dominate.
Overall I like this IPA and would seek it out again.

When you think of a classic IPA, this is a good beer to use as an example.
