Best by date on the label, 4/15/2013. Odell gives the beer a 4 month shelf life.
The beer comes in an extremely hazy dark peachy orange with a creamy white head.
The aroma has sweet tropics of mango and peaches. Orange peel, a slight grainy character, floral, and then a bit of resinous pine in the back. A bready malt.
The beer follows with a less obvious tropical fruit flavor, but still a presence of mangoes and tropical fruit that is emphasized by a hint of a caramel sweetness. There’s a slight cereal grainy flavor that almost makes the beer taste like a pale ale. There’s grapefruit peel and floral lavender quality towards the end, along with lots of green grass. The beer is medium bitter throughout and then moves onto slight pine, grapefruit pith, and floral. A good amount of drying as well, which makes you want to dig in for more.
In general, the beer is the style I prefer, tropical, hop juice quality with a light malt body. The beer is a bit under 3 months old. In the end though, it has wonderful qualities, but lacks a final punch of hops for the beer to really be where I want it.

Poured from a bottle into a Stone IPA glass. The beer is a hazy, coppery gold color with a nice 3 fingers of persistent white head. Nice dank hoppy aroma. Cut grass, hay, fresh linen, and lemon rind.
Light-medium body with a balanced flavor and a good, firm feel. There are some cereal-like grainy notes up front and herbal, somewhat peaty hop notes at mid-palate. Soft, slightly dry finish with a hint of gooseberry sweetness.
This is an old-school IPA. The focus is on balance. It has a biscuity malt backbone and a pleasant, herbal, tea-like hop character. Recommended.
