12oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Big thanks to BA morningthief for picking this up for me in Colorado.

Appearance: Free pour yields a 1.5 inch frothy white head that sticks around. Pours translucent orange and leaves webs of lacing.

Smell: Wow. If peach were a citrus fruit, it would smell like this. A little bit of soapy and pungent highlights. Not much to say about it other than it's big and perfect.

Taste: Surprising amount of crystal malt sweetness up front, giving way to peachy hops and a late-blooming bitterness before a very dry finish. What an interesting beer. The East Coast IPA flavors are lined with sharp flavors of orange. The heavy crystal malt and high alcohol give a burnt sugar flavor just before the almost excessively IBU-bitter finish. Orange aftertaste lingers impossibly long.

The brash IBU assault, while going along with the name, *almost* seems out of place with these soft and sweet flavors, but I'm liking it. Definitely like how it dries out in the end. This beer is like all the ones I've had from Odell; lots of care, lots of thought, well-executed, multidimensional flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, maybe a little thick and creamy rather than juicy. The bottom drops out through the finish, which is extremely dry (augmented by the high bitterness). Really good.

Overall: BA forum buzz had me thinking this was some kind of citrus-only, dried out, fully-West Coast style hop bomb. It's not... it's more like an old school East Coast IPA, but very very fresh. Tons of citrusy hop aroma, a little bit of dank, and lots of layers in the flavor. That healthy dose of sugar flavor that so often ruins big DIPAs (e.g. Southern Tier Unearthly) is present here, but the bitterness and dryness just whip the shit out of it until you can't complain about the beer being too sweet. Extra points for the aroma being some kind of fruit that I wish really existed.

If Odell distributed to my area, they would get a lot of my money.
