A couple of weeks ago, my buddy Ken asked if I wanted to grab a beer. I got there a little early, and saw they had Odell IPA on the menu. I hadn’t had that yet, and since we are new to Arizona I am trying all of these new brews. I ordered one and fell in love with the beer the second I poured it into the glass. The aroma was incredible, and the aftertaste lasted for a really long time. I am a big IPA guy… but this one takes the cake.

Tonight we are drinking from Papago Brewing. This place is sweet, and is quickly becoming our favorite place in the Valley. They have a great beer selection (both bottles and on draft) and their food is pretty good. I am hoping we can get them as a sponsor for the 1001 Bottles project. Anyway, let’s drink!

In the Glass: When we ordered the bottle, the server said, “1 bottle. 2 glasses.” He brought us two small glasses, and poured the beer for us. The beer is somewhat orange, and has a weak head and almost no lace.

Nose: The aroma is amazing. It is like a glass full of hops. The aroma sticks around for a while, and just punches you in the face. I love it. It smells like an American IPA is supposed to smell like. Let’s see what she tastes like.

Flavor: Oh. My. God. This beer is loaded with flavor, but it doesn’t knock you out with bitterness. There isn’t a lot of carbonation and the mouthfeel is just so smooth. The flavor is just what I expected from a good IPA.

Mouthfeel: A lot of IPAs have a ton of carbonation, but this one is surprisingly smooth. It starts off soft, and then the hops just kick in and overwhelm the palate. That is when the aftertaste starts and just hangs on for a LONG time.

Aftertaste: It’s still there. Man, this aftertaste is wicked. It isn’t overwhelming, but it does have a consistent flavor that just hangs on for dear life. Just when I think it’s time for another drink, I swallow… and there is the bitterness from those hop varieties. The burp is pretty great, too.

This is such a good beer. I am such a big IPA guy that finding a new “go to” IPA is always a good thing. I am not familiar with the Odell portfolio, but I can’t wait to try more. There are a few more on our list, and I am excited to try them all. Bottoms up, people!

Odell IPA - The bottle says: “READY TO BUCK CONVENTION - We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from England to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We’ve added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride.”

(By the way, I keep sticking my nose in the glass to smell this pile of hops. Love it!)

Poured from a 12oz. brown bottle into my Russian River shaker "pint" glass. Appears a mildly cloudy, golden orange color with about a finger of off-white head that sticks around, leaving a nice lace on the glass. Smells of floral, lemony hops, piney hops and a touch of sweet caramel malt. Tastes of bitter citrus such as lemon and grapefruit, as well as some pineapple and sweet malts. Medium in both body and carbonation. I was fortunate enough to receive six bottles of this through various trades and I am not complaining.
