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.

On draft at the Odell Brewery - June 2013

A - Yellow golden, tons of clarity. 1/2 a finger of head, and a little lace

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!

4.4/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Best by date of 9/10/14.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity, earthy, and floral hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus and grass. Big presence of citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, mango, and pineapple. Big floral and herbal hop presence with earthy hints of grass and pine resin. Solid malt presence with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A very solid hoppy aroma that is very IPA like.

Taste: Like it smells, a very earthy and juicy hop forward taste with good notes of citrus fruit and grass. Upfront presence of citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, orange, mango, lemon, pineapple, and melon. Earthy and floral hops with notes of damp grass and pine resin. Good backing of malt with sweet notes of caramel, cracker, grains, and yeast. Very hop forward. A very nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily and chewy. Finishes dry and smooth.

Overall: A really good take on a APA. Very good taste of citrus and earthy hops with a nice malt backing. One of the better hop forward versions of the style.

Cloudy, orange in color, and with a heavy white head of foam, this beer emits a fragrant nose of mango, flowers, and herbs. The generous head of foam leaves a good deal of lace as you drink and it looks quite nice atop the orange colored body.

This beer has a delicious flavor profile that features flavors such as pine, melon, grapefruit, grassy hops, and biscuit malts. It has a zesty/tangy flavor profile that makes it a great summer brew even if it is a little bitterer than the typical summer beer.

I’m impressed with this beer, as I have been with most beers from this world class brewery. The fruity, floral character and light but not too light body seem just right for a hot Texas day. This is certainly a beer I will be looking for each and every summer.
