Good IPA. A lot lighter in color than I expected. It has a lingering after taste, but nothing a beer drinker can't handle. Overall I was satisfied and had a few of them. A little pricey but well worth the money. I'm sure ill be having more of these in the future.

12oz Brown bottle with a best by date of 09/02/2014, poured into an Odell Snifter
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden amber with a 1/2 finger of head that recedes into a thin ring and shows a beautiful lace down my glass
Smell: Citrusy hops, very grapefruit-like
Taste: Bright and citrus hops; bitterness up front which develops in a citrus hop note and rounds out in flavor with a nice mix of hop and malt in the finish
Mouthfeel: This just feels like how id imagine hop juice to be if such a thing existed ; very full-flavored
Overall: This beer really shows off the bright, juicy hop notes of Odell's beers. Their hop profiles help to really stand out and define themselves as brand in a market that is over saturated with IPAs. There is plenty of hop flavor and bitterness up front but the finish rounds everything out with a bit of the malt backbone showing through.

Pale amber color, touch of haze. Lots of small bubbles rising up. Thick rocky head.
Citrus, piney, resiny, some sweet malts, very crisp.
Citrus, bitter orange, piney, resin, herbal hops. Sweet bready malt that balance it very well. Finish is bitter, very crisp, a little dry. Body is medium, very crisp and refreshing, a little oily, semi dry, very smooth.
It's an outstanding IPA. 7% ABV is well hidden, highly drinkable.

Poured from a bottle into a regular pint glass.
Appearance: Perfect IPA look with a finger of head. My god, this is the best possible start for an IPA in color, appearance, and head.
Smell: Nearly perfect in smell. Very hoppy with citrus shining through but there is a slight hint of iron that detracts from the scent. As I said though, nearly perfect.
Taste: الحمد لله (thank God) sorry for my Arabic but this beer pushes the envelope for what an IPA is supposed to taste like and is everything that one should hope for and expect. Upon tasting there is the bitterness that one hopes and dreams of but it is quickly replaced by sweetness, citrus, and an almost rye taste. Be advised, this beer is going to knock your socks off if you enjoy IPAs, especially on hot, sultry days.
Mouthfeel: What? This beer is perfect and can finish any dish, especially spicy food. It's tasty, refreshing, and smooth.
Overall: Overall? This is my favorite beer and is what all other beers should be striving for in terms of IPAs. It is perfect in color, carbonation, and foam throughout. It it nearly immaculate throughout the hoppy smell mixed with citrus with fruit. The taste is unbelievable because I have taste nothing quite similar before or since. (I tried this next to Bell's Two Hearted Ale and Ballfast Point Sculpin IPA just to be sure) I cannot believe the ingenuousness they put into this beer. Odell thank you!
