look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Hazy golden hue. Pours a half finger, bubbly, white head. Settles quickly, but not completely leaving a smattering of bubbles and a ring around the rim. Thick beer ring lacing.

S: Pine resin, orange citrus, grapefruit, and honey.

T: Yeast, lemon and grapefruit citrus, and a hint of honey, with some fresh tea leaf.

M: Crisp, and somewhat syrupy in body. Slightly sweet in the finish. Well-balanced.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Decent head, and some really nice lacing. Nose is sweet and piney, with citrus and honey. Yeasty tone bittered with a crisp hop and diverse citrus, sweetened with honey, and balanced with a little fresh tea leaf. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

A - Pours a golden, copper with off-white head that quickly fades. Minimal lacing on the glass.

S - Fruity, floral hops and spice followed by a bready, malt finish.

T - Bitter floral notes and pepper backed by subtle, bready malts. There's a sharpness to the finish that's very enjoyable.

M - Moderate carbonation with great body.

O - This was a great beer and in my opinion is spot on for the style while remaining unique and interesting. Not overly complex, just very well done.

Great brew look forward to it every late spring . It seems more consistent than the Odell's isolation ale which I also enjoy

I also like the Odell's iPa. These are my go to beers of choice at my neighborhood pub

I also prefer these brews in a very frosted mug pint size which at happy hours is 3.50 per pint

Pours a fairly standard crisp honey colour. Minimal head.

This beer smells really enticing. It's a crisp fresh aroma with resinous and sharp at once. Some fruity hop notes as well, with a bready malt backdrop. Possibly even that touch of pine on the finish.

The taste takes its cues appropriately from the nose. We are greeted initially by a dry piney hop that dances through genres experimenting with fruity citrus notes and a bit of a peppery kick before settling into a juicy/pithy combo at the finish. The malt is less pronounced on the tongue than it is in the nose and takes on more of a biscuit characteristic.

I was looking for a go to pale ale after moving away from the coast and had exceptionally high expectations that this would be it. After my first foray with it this summer, I thought it might fill the role, but it would be a couple of months before I saw it at the shop again. With that six pack I was initially underwhelmed (disappointed is actually a more appropriate term for how I felt), and thought it was back to the drawing board, but about halfway through the magic was recovered. I don't know why it seemed so drastically different to me from the first to the second half of that six pack, but I'm now firmly back in the camp of loving it (thought honestly not as much as I had hoped). This is an excellent pale ale from a brewery I am only now learning to appreciate. Sad it took me this long to discover them, but glad I'm getting to now!!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a clean light orangey-yellow pour with 2 fingers of bright white head, great retention, and excellent lacing. smells of mild fruity and herbal hops, bready malt profile. not getting much there in flavor honestly, a crisp yet sweet malt profile, with light floral/fruity hops, slight citrus hints. medium body, high carbonation, damn well easy to drink pale ale.

it's hard to pick up on certain flavors, but it is a very well balanced pale ale. the hops used are more leaning towards floral/fruity, which work very well with the grains used for the malt. if you're into sweeter pale ales, this is for you. i usually prefer mine with a more hop forward profile, but this is pretty damn good.
