look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a pint glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a clear honey golden color with four fingers of thick, rocky beige head. Retention is incredible, especially at 7%, and the head leaves sticky lacing as it recedes. Inviting.

S - Pleasant, fresh floral and grassy hops. Freshly grated lemon and orange zest. Crystal and caramel malts balance the hops nicely. It's a bit restrained but refreshing and inviting. Simple (might not be a bad thing).

T - All the hops found on the nose are present, but they're a little more muted than I'd like. The hops are certainly fresh. The malts are a little more dominate than they ought to be, but it somehow remains well balanced. Bitter on the finish. A bit too simple.

M - Too thick. Well carbonated and a bit oily.

D - It's incredibly drinkable at 7% and a well built and balanced IPA. Would be a great intro to IPA's for a novice, but probably won't satisfy the hopheads out there. A fine offering from Odell, but it lacks the depth that could make it truly great.

Acquired via trade from Wasatch, so a big “Thank you” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of fruity citrus, caramelized malts and a decent amount of hops.

T: The taste starts with a combination of pale hops bitterness and citrus & caramel sweetness. In most beers American IPA’s that I’ve had the latter fades before the former, but in this case it’s the other way around. There’s a good malt character that doesn’t make its presence known right away. The after-taste is sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a decent even if it may not be the absolute best IPA that I’ve had. I could drink a few of them but it wouldn’t be my first choice.
