12oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. no freshness date.

pours out a slightly cloudy light copper, orange color with one fingers worth of retentive white head. some pretty good looking lace.

crisp grapefruit citrus, pineapple as well as a touch of other such tropical fruits, slightly dank, a bready, biscuity malt is hidden way beneath the hops.

lots of dry, bitter, crisp citrus fruits. grapefruit, slight lemon, pine and grassiness with hints of dank tropical fruit towards the finish. again a bready malt in the background. a sharp biterness lingers.

crisp and rather thirst quenching. appears lighter than it is. medium bodied. very easy drinking.

a solid IPA i would definatly come back to, i could see this going down very well in the summer time. not anything super unique, but they got everything right with this. well made. my first impression with odell was a good one.

P= Great artwork on the bottle. Everything I like to read about IPA's ABV, drink date, etc. From the bottle into a nice pilsner glass.

A= Reddish orange color with a nice thick head, insane lacing.

S= At the nose hits hard with grassy hops. Definitely hop dominated, piney flow to it. Stood next to my Christmas tree and drank it...awesome!

T= A little low on the carbonation, more bitterness here than hop flavor, but I like getting my face twisted off.

O= New power session IPA, watch out at 7 %. I called my friend over at 9pm to come try it. His wife thought I was crazy.

I am loving this new style American IPA...brings the Hops to the fore front where they should be. Ft Collins, CO is brewing IPA right. Ranger was my go to IPA but someone just pushed it out of the way.

Thanks to buffs9 for this bottle.

A: Pours a nice transparent golden honey color. There is about one finger of white head that settles fairly quickly. There is also some great lacing left on the glass as this beer drinks.

S: This beer smells lightly of sweet malt, tropical fruits, and citrus. There is a crispness in the nose that is really nice, but the underlying malt is still noticeable.

T: I get a really well balanced tropical fruit punch mixed with malt. Those flavors last until the finish, at which point I get some grapefruit notes. There is a bot of lingering bitter, but nothing overwhelming.

M: Light bodied beer. It starts off wet and finishes just a touch dry. The carbonation is spot on. Very nice.

O: This is a really solid IPA. It has great flavor and great balance. If this beer were available in Buffalo, I'd be buying a sixer every so often.

Had this on 2011-12-29 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy golden amber with a 2-finger pillowy white head and good lacing.

S - Mango, pineapple, sweet orange flesh, touch of pine. Not overpowering but very nice.

T - Sweet pale malt and citrus flesh. Orange peel, pine, mint. Great balance. Lingering citrus flesh and bitterness.

M - Light-medium body and medium-high carbonation. Clean, smooth, resinous and refreshing.

O - Had this side-by-side with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. This has a brighter and crisper citrus flavor, more fruit and less malt and pine than the SNPA. Also had it side-by-side with a Myrcenary. I liked the initial taste of this one more than the Myrcenary but the Myrcenary left a better end and aftertaste. The SNPA held it's own but it tasted malty by comparison, which surprised me.

poured into a mug

ill just skip to the goods:

this is my favorite IPA overall. just a fantastic blend of your typical IPA flavors, pine and citrus hops. smooth yet powerful enough to hang with some DIPAS. not as boozy as the 7% carries either. great nose, great pour with a big white fluffy head.

dollar for dollar there aint much better folks. everytime i make my way to minnesota i make SURE i take at least a 6 pack of this home with me.

this beer has become a staple for me. just flat out awesome!
