A=pours a beautiful golden/copper color with a one finger bright white head

S=piney notes followed with some citrus (grapefruit), very clean, crisp smells

T=outstanding gentle hoppiness, not overwhelming but very present. Again, piney notes with some citrus aftertaste similar to grapefruit

M=some oiliness, gentle carbonation, very smooth

D=extremely enjoyable and definitely sessionable.

Picked this up at Goebel in Wichita...

Pours honey colored with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. very good head retention & lacing

S: Citrus hops, by the bushel; plus some grassy & floral action

T: Grapefruitty & tangerine hops, a touch of honey malt & dryness up front. Slight pear fruittyness followed lemony & grapefruitty hops as this warms, plus some crackery notes. Finishes crisp, semi-dry with much citrus

MF: Medium-bodied, crisp with restrained carbonation & good balance

Trough the roof sessionability, I sure hope this stays in the rotation. One of the better APAs (not including AIPAS calling themselves APAs) out there IMHO

Cask at Papago. Aroma was that of grassy type hops. Some malt background but faint. Carbonation was low but appropriate for a cask conditioned beer. Flavor was rich two row malt with plenty of wonderful hop flavor. Odells did a great job dry hopping the beer. Again, very grassy flavor, not to much citrus. One of the best cask beers I've had in a long time.

One of the best beers from Odell. I'm counting the days till the new batch comes out. It's one of the great summer time drinkers. With the heavy hop taste but a light easy drinking finish. It should be back in stores over the next couple of months. Texas is in for a great surprise this summer. Welcome to the big show!
