Enjoyed out of a brown 12 oz bottle with an enjoy by date of 1/10/14 stamped on the bottle. Poured into a 16 oz nonic style tumbler.

Appearance - Body is a mostly transparent mix of amber and yellow, with some golden highlights. A slight chill haze keeps it from being crystal clear. Atop the jewel-like body sits a towering four-to-five finger creamy head the color of white corn kernels. Slowly begins to dissipate, leaving a wonderfully sticky network of lacy webs. Within the liquid, streams of carbonation bubbles rise steadily to replenish the massive head.

Smell - Wonderful notes of grapefruit, pine resin, fresh cut grass and some more fragrant floral overtones come through initially--all the aromatic hoppiness one might expect from the style. But then comes balance in the form of biscuity pale and semisweet caramel malts.

Taste - Initial fruits of pineapple, faint mango and still more grapefruit-like drying bitterness. The malt backbone provides a nice bed for the hops to allow them to flourish without taking over the entire show. I love a good hop bomb as much as the next guy, but there is certainly appeal to Odell's interplay of pungent hops and sweet grains and the way they both come through quite clearly without pushing the other out of the way.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium bodied and moderate to heavy carbonation. Predominantly dry finish with just a touch of sweet to round it out.

Overall, a stellar example of the style and one that probably doesn't get enough love on the message boards for something that is surprisingly rated as high as this one is. Oh well, I'm more than content to continue being able to get this easily and inexpensively.
