Poured from a bottle about to go out of date. Perfect translucent orange color with just a touch of haze. Head dissipated instantly but the lacing is super thick. The smell is a bit lacking, maybe to do with its age. Not getting much more then some mild citrus and a bit of booze. Taste is fantastic, not too bitter, not too dank, not too fruity and most importantly to me, not too malty. A perfect combination that balances perfectly. It's not super carbonated but it doesn't sit flat on your tongue, quite smooth. Overall, I received this beer as an extra in a trade and kind of fell in love with it. Guess i'll be trading for this next time.

A - Pours a nice orange amber like color that is slightly hazy. Head is about 2 fingers worth with a semi aggressive pour and recedes from there, with very nice and frothy looking bubbles almost like soap bubbles. Very attractive lacing.

S - Amazing floral hop scent that overwhelms in the finest of ways. Pine, orange peel, lime zest, pineapple, grapefruit certainly come to mind. Absolutely enticing.

T - Moderate carbonation opens up the pallet to the amazing hops that burst in your mouth., The hops provide a nice tropical fruity flavor with the right amount of piney resin to balance it out. Finishes with an excellent drying bitterness. Drinks super well.

M - Crisp and carbonated (not too much) up front that immediately becomes bitter and drying.

O: One hell of a beer. It is semi session-able and is killer refreshing on a hot day. First beer i have picked up from them and man was I impressed. Looking forward to trying new beers from Odell Brewing.

The quintessential Colorado IPA! The hop character is probably the best I've ever experienced from a single IPA, but manages to just hold onto enough balance to make the beer thoroughly drinkable. One caveat: I never like it as well in the bottle. That magical whole flower hop character just doesn't seem to survive the bottling process.

Bottle at Pub 17 (the hotel bar in the Grand Hyatt on Welton in Denver) poured into a pint glass. Pours orange colored with a creamy white head on top. Aroma of grapefruits, big pine notes, bready malts. Flavor follows closely with a huge bitter pine bite that is very drying on the finish. Despite the bitter, there is a definite malt presence here and it is certainly not what I’d call a west coast IPA. Medium bodied, on the dryer side, with medium plus carbonation. Good brew, but not sure it met my expectations.

Beautiful white foam head floats above a separation of slightly hazy, orange and yellow body.
Nose: orange and grapefruit rinds, a fruity bouquet of hop goodness, with sweet bread in the background.
Taste: the hops impart flavor throughout, from the citrus rind with a bready zest, to tropical flavors as it warms a bit. Yes the pint is emptying quickly.
Mouthfeel: creamy, smooth, medium carbonated. Bitterness and hop dankness feels juicy and extremely well balanced. Ends perfectly.
This to me is a perfect example of an IPA. Probably not my favorite, but among the best I've ever tasted. Grain and hop balance are spot on for highly drinkable smoothness. My first try from this brewery, which is new to the TX market. It's reputation holds up well (as do most in the brewscape).
