4.6/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours hazy yellow gold color with a big 2 finger foamy white head that faded very slowly and left great lacing coating the sides, leaving rings as it went down. More impressive than the head was the aroma that jumped out after popping the cap off – it smelled like fresh pineapple, mango and orange in a bowl, and was very hoppy.

Smells of big citrus hops up front, with pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon, clementine, floral hops, flowers, sweet malt, caramel, brown sugar, candy like Sweet Tarts, light bread, grains and some light spices; wow, this smells like a glass of hop oil and is so fruity that it’s like a citrus grove – an excellent IPA nose, outstanding even.

Tastes as great as it smells, with citrus hops, pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon, guava, clementine, floral hops, flowers, sweet malt, caramel, brown sugar, candy like Sweet Tarts, wet wheat bread, lightly toasted grains, spices like coriander, pepper and a hint of cinnamon, then some piney hops, more citrus fruity sweetness and a slightly bitter finish. Tastes like it was wet hopped and is extremely flavorful; this was totally worth shipping across the country.

Mouthfeel is creamy and slick, with mild carbonation that is on the crisp side, a medium body, and a slightly bitter finish that hides the ABV very well.

Overall it was excellent, and it’s a shame that I only had one to drink. Extremely high drinkability, this is a definite recommendation and wonderful representation of this style. Well done Odell.

4.03/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Honey color, white head that dissipates to a thin layer with good lacing.

Smell: Big hop aroma. Citrus notes come through first. Grapefruit for the most part. Bittering hop aroma in the background. Not much on the malt front.

Taste: More of the bittering hops come through than the grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Thin and dry. Slightly bitter. Good amount of carbonation.

Overall: Not a bad brew at all. Very solid execution, bottle dating, decent price point, good availability in my state as well. Give it a shot if you haven't had a chance!

*From notes

-- Thanks, John --

A: Clean, pale golden. A standard pour yields a white two finger head. Decent retention and lacing.

S: Lemon, and lots of it. Hints of Pine-Sol and malt.

T: Again, more pine. If you had to classify it, I'd certainly call this more of an "east coast" style IPA. Not overly fruity, it's more resin based then anything.

M: Weak. It's thin, which really is a detriment to the beer.

O: Odell's IPA is fairly middle of the road. It doesn't stand out in a strong field. I'm beginning to think I'm not a fan of Odell's suds.

This is a great beer in a sense that you can get it anywhere here in Arizona. I am glad I am able to buy this on a regular basis and I believe it is a good tasting beer that you can have on any occasion. Might I add this is very affordable.

Taste: Has an awesome hop taste, the one im drinking imparticular must have been a tad older, but still held proper hop characteristic

mouthfeel: has your IPA mouthfeel, pretty damn awesome and is the perfect between creamy and light mouthfeel.

aroma: Like I said this was probably an older bottle, but overall the smell is good. Citrus *like armarillo hops*

overall: This is a great beer for someone to experience. This is something they brew all year round that offers a very citrusy and partially balanced IPA. It has some alcohol content to get you feelin good which is always good, but you don't get that crazy burn from the beer. I fully recommend it if you haven't tried it and for $9 a six pack, can't be beaten.

Orange-gold, with a compact but uber-sticky white head. Juicy hops - the usual American clan - pine, tangerine, and even some mango. The bitterness is expertly balanced with a lean malt backbone that keeps the whole package together and super drinkable. It was an exercise to drink this slowly so the bottle lasted more than 20 minutes. Please Odell, come to Oklahoma.
