Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a dark golden with a 1" off-white head. Small blotches and bubbles on the glass.

Honey, biscuit, onion, spice, some lemon and oranges, pine

Honey, caramel, some citrus, spicy pine bitterness.

Very nice ipa. Has enough citrus to overcome this spiciest. Also nice sweetness.

Pours a hazy tangerine/amber. Small head, but good retention and lacing.

The nose presents caramel and bready malts with some citrus and tropcial fruit.

My god is this smoothe and drinkable. Caramel malts, maybe some pale/cracker? I don't know, I'm still not great at differentiating these things. But definitely some sweet caramel laying a foundation for the floral and citrusy hops. As it warms it gets pithier.

This is a DAMN fine glass of beer (to paraphrase a certain FBI agent...). I would put it with the top tier of off-the-shelf single IPAs I've had

An absolute favorite IPA thus far.

Mind blowing for me.

Orange yellow color. Great hints of lemon and grapefruit in the nose.

The best balance hop bitter finish I have experreince.

Wonderful mouthfeel. Refreshing taste and flavours of malt with hints of butterscotch.

One of my favorite IPAs out there. This is simply a great balance of everything in an IPA. Not overly hoppy and yet a great balance with the malt. Lots of citrus in the smell and taste. Great orange color to the beer. I wish the foam lasted a little longer, but the taste is still amazing. I don't find too many IPAs that I can drink all day like this one. Well done Odell!

Best by 10/23/13, assuming pretty fresh.

A- Two inch white head on a light orange body. Head is dense and is leaving heavy/splotchy lacing as I type this. Average head retention, cap and collar throughout.

S- Aroma is of juicy citrus, oranges specifically. Perhaps some mangos.

T- Sweeter (not as dry) than most IPAs. A pungent citrus hop twang at the end of each sip. 7%abv fits here to me.

M- Full mouthfeel. Small carbonation bubbles, on the lower end...works well.

O- A solid IPA if nothing else. If this was around here I could see me picking up a few 6 packs a year. Thanks for the mountain region tick RuckusDu!
