12 oz Bottle purchased in Wahlbar in Fallowfield Manchester.
Poured by the barman, minimal off-white head, lacing nicely down the sides. Copper coloured body, ambient carbonation.
Aroma is muted compared to many IPAs, that grapefruit thing takes hold primarily, but some orange, pine resin, lavender and floral perfume involved, a touch of bready malts.
Taste is, again, a little low key, the citrus notes are there, some tropical fruit and the malty biscuit, caramel undertone has a spiciness that is pleasing. It feels a decent drink... smooth with minimal fizz, but a little lacking in complexity and fails to pack the punch you might expect from a US IPA, so feels a bit ho-hom. There's a number of more intriguing IPAs available on the market in the UK at present.

Odell Brewing IPA
Appearance: golden, large head, and some lacing.
Smell: citrus and a hop-fruitiness.
Taste: bitter hops and a strong grapefruit flavor with other citrus hints.
This has a very strong grapefruit flavor. It outdoes the hops. This seems more like a fruit beer than an IPA.

Appearance – This is a clear light orange in color with a nice, white, lasting head.
Smell – The big pine and monster orange rind are big but balanced at the nose and the malts are all but absent.
Taste – The giant hops make it righteously to the taste and the malts are again faint. The beer itself is not balanced but very hoppy.
Mouthfeel – This isn’t even medium in the body with some strong drying throughout.
Drinkability – Hopheads will love this beer but it is probably too much for the general public.

Odell IPA is on the lighter side with a smooth refreshing finish. Unlike many IPA, (I enjoy most)the Odell IPA has a complete flavor enjoyed throughout the beer. It does not have an overwhelming moment at the front or backside of each taste which allows for a refreshing tasty beer everytime. A fabulous beer for everyday IPA drinkers and beginners the same.

After a semi vigerous pour, I'm left with a glass of dark gold beer with a nice white, fluffy head. The head dissapates some, but still leaves a nice layer on top.
The smell is a little muted. I get some tropical, grapefruity notes.
Taste is definately hop forward bitterness. Nice and tropical.
In the mouth this beer shines. Medium bodied with a nice oily hop presence.
Overall this beer is great. Usually I go for the BIG IIPAs, but this is just as enjoyable when a 'standard IPA' is what you are looking for. Definately a 'must try'. Shout out to Fortsambo for this!
