A - Golden color, fluffy white head, moderate carbonation, clear with a bit of particulate matter.

S - Lots of hop aroma, citrus and sweet floral. A bit of sweet malt comes through at the end and a touch of toastiness.

T - Almost exactly like the aroma, the hops come on strong but never become overwhelming, they are in balance with the malt. The hops are a nice combination of citrus and floral, with makes it a bit more complex than a lot of the straight forward citrus bombs that a lot of AIPAs are. A little sweetness from the malt finishes things up.

M - Moderate body which is balances nicely with the higher alcohol content and hop presence.

O - This is an excellent AIPA. It isn't just a hop bomb although there are a lot of IBUs there, nor is it super bitter, there is a lot of flavor and aroma from these hops. The hops are a nice combination of varieties which adds some nice complexity. The malt does take a back seat, as it should in an IPA, but it is there and lends a nice amount of body to make this IPA, which is a bit on the strong side, perfectly balanced. Will definitely be looking for this one again.

Slightly hazy golden body; creamy white head.

Old bottle but big grapefruit on the nose, smells really good. Malt on level of hops.

Follows nose really close; Big grapefruit notes with spicy malt underneath it.

Light body; Moderate to heavy carbonation, really smooth nice feel.

Really easy and refreshing IPA especially for 7%

Poured from a 12oz bottle dated best before 2/12/12 into a chilled Odell's Myrcenary pint glass.

A:Pours a wonderful golden clear color with a big frothy white head that leaves a nice sticky lacing on the glass.

S: Hops, hops, and more hops. The light, bready malt background offsets the hops perfectly.

T: The taste is a hophead IPA lover's dream come true. The citrus, floral notes just smack off the palate. It is offset by a perfect malty backbone.

M: Excellent carbonation on this one as it leaves you wanting more and more.

O: Odells struck a home run on this one. One of my favorite IPAs.

pours a slightly hazy golden amber with one finger of tight white head that clings to the glass and lasts. Smell is pure IPA, tons of bright pine and citrus (tons of grapefruit). Taste is more of the same, exactly what I am looking for in an IPA, paired with a strong but not overpowering bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice, it is a touch malty which balances with the citrus and bitterness. Overall a really nice IPA, definitely a solid choice for lovers of the style.

I enjoyed this sublime beer on tap in Denver at a local saloon, the Blake Street Vault. After a excellent, slow pull from the barkeep, which allowed the beer to aerate, I was immediately struck by the pungent aroma of the hops. Excited for my first sip, I noticed the deep golden color of the beer and the thick head. The first sip was characterized by a full flavor of hops and some bitterness. During the course of drinking, the beer remained remarkably consistent: the had stayed in tact and clung to the glass; the was true with hops earth notes. There was also a very agreeable aftertaste.
Overall, Odell's IPA is one of the best IPAs I have ever drunk!
