4.13/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pour: Golden yellow in color with a slight haze. Two fingers of frothy white head that had excellent retention and left all sorts of lacing on the glass.
Smell: Predominantly grapefruit hop aromas on this one, supported by a pale malt sweetness. Hints of tart fruit as well.
Taste: Things kick off with a tart fruity taste (not sure exactly what it is - green apple maybe?) supported by a sweet pale malt backbone. Biscuity middle and finishes up with a moderate grapefruit and pine hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium with medium carbonation. An apparent smoothness, and a dry finish.
Drinkability/Overall: Quite sessionable but the alcohol sneaks up on you. Good flavors, not filling, and refreshing. Great summer brew.
Final Notes: This is a great beer, and easily one of the best summer seasonals I've had. Bordering on IPA territory but retains the refreshment and lighter character of the APA style. Good utility beer.

Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Dated 8-21-14, so must be a "best by" date since this is still July. Medium orange body with a light haze. Two finger off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves a bit of lacing.
Wow - nice aroma for an APA. Heavy fruit notes that seem to be a blend of many types of fruit including citrus, tropical AND a peach note. Very light malt note in the background.
The taste follows the aroma but I expected it to be a little sweeter based on the aroma. But, that's OK, the flavor rocks. A light hop note that is little more grassy than piney gives the sweet hop and malt flavors a balance.
Medium thickness in the mouthfeel and no obvious notice of alcohol. I really like this and will be seeking it out.

On draft at the Odell Brewery - June 2013
A - Yellow golden, tons of clarity. 1/2 a finger of head, and a little lace
A - Big and hoppy, due to the dry hopped process.
T - A big hopy pale ale. Well balanced, tasty!
M - Well carbonated, smooth.
O - Best Pale ale I have had in awhile. Almost - IPA-ish. Get some!
Serving type: on-tap
