Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12 oz bottle to pint glass.

A - Crystal clear gold translucent with a slightly off-white head. Not hazy in the least bit. Head lasts a good while with nice lacing.

S - Perfumy hop aromas! Grapefruit, orange, and floral in character.

T - Citrus flavors carry over to the initial taste. Very nice variety of floral and citrus hops. Bitterness follows as it blends with a slightly spicy note. Incredibly smooth and well balanced though hops dominate.

M - Very smooth with nice carbonation.

D - Very drinkable IPA. Unlike so many IPA's that are overloaded with hop flavors, aroma, and bitterness, I found this be quite right.

One of the better IPAs I've had. I would strongly recommend it.

Yellow-orange pour with decent head and great lacing. Nice big tropical nose with hints of bread, tea and caramel. Very nice resiny, pungent first sip that transforms into a very well balanced beer. The earthy, bitter hops are complemented by a nice sweet malt backbone. Lots of citrus, but there's something unique about this beer that I can't put my finger on. It's a unique, earthy, but pleasing aftertaste. The mouthfeel is on the chewy side and highly drinkable. A very unique IPA that I will definitely seek out again.

Got this as an extra! Thank you you-know-who!

A: Burnt orange color, 2 finger head - good retention, good amount of lacing, beautiful looking!

S: Hops, grapefruit, citrus

T: Mostly hops, grapefruit, citrus, very refreshing - reminds me of Zombie Dust, not too sweet, not too bitter (still has a good slight bitter finish). Perfect for summer! Not much lingering taste afterwards though.

M: Good amount of carbonation, very drinkable.

O: It caught me by surprise. This was my first Odell, and I am very impressed! Great beer to have (although not really a session beer) out back, when it's sunny out.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Hazy light copper color with a decent off white head that sticks around fairly well and leaves some nice lacing.

The aroma is all pine needles and grapefruit hops. The taste starts with some light sweet malt, a hint of honey, followed immediately by a blast of citrus - grapefruit, tangerine, lemon - then finishes slightly dry with a load of pine needles that linger on in the aftertaste.

Medium bodied, dangerously drinkable and refreshing. An excellent IPA for the hop lovers.
