Pours a nice straw color, pretty clear and not much head. Smells great! The smell, and the taste is very tropical/piney. I'd love to know the hop profile, because it's got a certain tropical note that I'm guessing is citra, but I'd love to know. A tad low on the carbonation scale, but feels nice in your mouth, tastes great... I'm really pleasantly surprised by this, which was included in a trade as an extra. Top notch IPA!

Have bought pints on tap at the Odell brewery, LaLuz (South) on Boardwalk in Fort Collins ($2 a pint), and Lucky Joe's in Fort Collins ($2 a pint) many, many, many times. Have also bought six-packs of bottles. This review is for Odell IPA on tap at LaLuz.

Pours a hazy golden copper with a white creamy head and nice retention. Aroma of citrus- grapefruit, lemon, orange, and pine notes. The aroma lets you know that you are in for a real treat. Has a nice full mouth feel. The flavors are complex, well-balanced, and absolutely wonderful. The balance between hops and malt is flawless. This flavors end with a nice bitter crispness. The taste of alcohol is muted but warming. For IPA lovers, this is pure heaven. Interestingly, this IPA actually tastes better on tap at the two locations listed above than at the Odell brewery. This may be related to serving temperature. Furthermore, bottles of this IPA even when very fresh are not quite up to the stellar heights of this IPA on tap. If you are in the Fort, you owe it to yourself to indulge in a pint or two (or three) of this nectar of the malt gods.

Friend brought from brewery, had in bottle, poured beautiful golden with thin head and tempting lacing.

I simply love this IPA, smells fresh, hoppy, citrus notes - almost lemon. Pine and perfectly balanced hops and a clean and light, crisp finish that lingers with delicious deep flavors that even feel fruity.

Not the most bitter IPA, not the most distinguished, but perhaps the most refreshing and complete.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a cloudy orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thick frothy film and large collar with excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and citrus hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).

The taste was moderately bitter with a light caramel sweetness pretty much throughout, progressing slightly with a nice grapefruit hop presence taking over along with a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a light hoppy grapefruit taste left behind to linger a little longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a carbonation that was just beyond mild in intensity.

Overall I found this to be a very well balanced IPA, nice and hoppy with a tasty light sweetness and a not so overbearing bitterness...
