(12oz bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours clear golden color with off-white head. Light carbonation. Aroma has grapefruit, lemon, resin and some dank aromas. Taste has some bitterness, but is mostly malty like Fat Tire. Medium bodied with chunky texture. Bitter finish. Not a fan of this att all. Not sure why this beer is so highly rated on this site; its like a hoppy version of fat tire.

A - Pours a rich gold with a thin head, which rapidly falls to a ring and island. Small bubbles of evenly spread carbonation float to the surface. Reasonable start.

S - Resinous/herbal hops, peach, pineapple, light breadiness, slightly floral.

T - Refined herbal hops initially. Drink becomes watery and tasteless in the middle before light fruitiness appears. Finishes with an bubblegum edge. Aftertaste is lightly hoppy with a bit of caramel.

M - Far too watery. The light carbonation is nice, but the beer need more body.

D - I would struggle to give this anything other than an average score. There is nothing particularly dislikeable about the beer, but by the same token, nothing to get excited about.

a: clear gold color, no carbonation, little head ever appears, nice thick lace ring
s: soft piney hop aroma with light citrus
t: hoppy, citrus tastes are overcome with salty beef taste, kind of odd mix; finishes crisply with light hop bitterness
m: light to medium body finishes with mild carbonated spritz
d: fairly easy to drink, but the flavors didn't come together well enough for me

Not much aroma on opening the bottle. Lovely orange-marmaladey hops on the palate, with zest and pith. Lots of sticky malt and a rather thick mouthfeel make it slightly syrupy. Hops counteract the sweetness giving a decently balanced beer.

The finish is bitter enough to be pleasant, but not as bitter as the aroma hops lead one to expect.

It's a decent, enjoyable beer, but given the price of it here as an import, I doubt I'll buy it again.

Enjoyed on-tap @ Cicero's in The Loop (St. Louis), MO for $4.75. Tapped from the Odell Tap Handle into a Clear, Non-Labeled 16oz Pint Glass.

Aroma- Has a strong citrus hop character from the beginning and low amounts of malt in between. A bit bready when it comes down to it and somehow this sneaks through the citrus aroma.

Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that dies quickly. Has a dark golden body that is clear and leaves rings of lace behind.

Flavor- Very malty and just has a touch of hops here... Not enough pop to the mouth while an APA should usually. Has a light bitterness at the finish but mostly a very clean taste.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Smooth, and has a sweeter finish.

Overall Impression- Very refreshing but not enough hop or flavor for me. This style is usually VERY hoppy and this brew would be perfect if it had more of this. Love Odell Brewing but fell short on this one for me...
