On tap at the brewery.

a-golden in color, lively carbonation. Poured into an imperial pint glass, laces with every sip.

s-huge aromatic hops are present with tons of citrus, grapefruit rind, and some sweetness. This is how an IPA should smell. As the beer warms, it just gets better.

t-big hop forward, but not too overwhelming. This beer has plenty of balance, but gives a lot of the citrus, grapefruit and malty backbone to the palate. The beer has a long finish, and holds on until the next sip. This is not palate wrecking, but you can tell it's a big IPA. Bitterness is welcome, and fades out after the beer is off the palate. Alcohol is well hidden here. Very tasty!

m-medium bodied, and not heavy on the tongue at all. appropriate for the style.

o-Odell rocked this beer. Well balanced, and well constructed. This IPA is a standard bearer, and has a lot going on with it. The beer is not trying too hard, and has balance and fits the IPA style perfectly.

On-tap at Crescent Ballroom in downtown Phoenix during the Deer Tick show on May 3rd.

A: Orange-amber with a good, white head. No lace or retention.

S: Heavy American hops. Dry, piney, citrus.

T: Again, huge American hops. Bitter, dry, sweet, and refreshing. Great IPA to drink at any time.

M: Super smooth and delicious. Minimal carbonation.

O: Fantastic, consistent IPA.

Pours a cloudy dark gold with a finger of white head. Good lacing and retention.

Smells of citrus, tropical fruits with a little bit of an earthy spiciness.

Same flavors as aromas. Not terribly intense. Some light citrus flavors up front. A little bit of a bready chewy malt in the middle. Finishes with a little spiciness and the slightest hint of alcohol.

Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation levels.

A little different and not one of my favorites, but pretty solid.

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a pure copper color. A frothy thick head sits on top and dissipates to a chunky film. Excellent lacing all over the glass. The beer smells so, so good. Sweet oranges mixed with grapefruit rind and bitter hops. The beer tastes as good as it smells. Again, some sweet citrus flavors such as tangerines or oranges abound, with a perfect compliment of bitter grapefruit. A nice clean, dry hop finish. The mouthfeel is clean and dry.

Overall, I'm very, very impressed with this IPA. I've seen this beer on the shelf for years, and never tried it until now. This beer is so tasty and full of aroma. The senses get overloaded with quality.

Got this as an extra! Thank you you-know-who!

A: Burnt orange color, 2 finger head - good retention, good amount of lacing, beautiful looking!

S: Hops, grapefruit, citrus

T: Mostly hops, grapefruit, citrus, very refreshing - reminds me of Zombie Dust, not too sweet, not too bitter (still has a good slight bitter finish). Perfect for summer! Not much lingering taste afterwards though.

M: Good amount of carbonation, very drinkable.

O: It caught me by surprise. This was my first Odell, and I am very impressed! Great beer to have (although not really a session beer) out back, when it's sunny out.
