What an amazing beer we have here! Getting this on tap into a 25 ounce glass, there is a thick lingering head of foam, and the flavor seems to get better and better as you get through the beer. I will definitely be trying this in the bottle to see what I think. A must have for anyone who is a fan of IPA's.

Appearance: Poured a pale-ish, orange-yellow with an inviting, fluffy white top which held a sticky lace.

Smell: Perfectly sweet, citrus hops pour through the aroma along with a touch of other fruits and a tad bit of malts, all at a perfect strength.

Taste: The beginning lingered in a fruity citrus, somewhat malty, but introduced a flavorful bitterness with the hops; the middle sharply peaked the bitterness and sweetness back and forth like a trigonometric wave of sorts; the end tied everything back down purely into a subtle rind, sweet yet bitter, but still calming the tastes.

Mouthfeel: Perfectly carbonated, perfectly smooth, perfectly thick. . . just perfect.

Overall: The artwork stands out in my brain, even when I was too young to drink or too naive. That was all for a reason, this is a pinnacle of beers. If Odell has done anything special it's this: an IPA for anyone with even a slight sense of taste. It's a 6-pack I will come back to that will accompany one of those infinite moments of life. Cheers, Odell, for an untouched IPA.
