Poured on tap into a tulip.
A - Amazing clear golden orange with 2 fingers of white bubbly head.
S - Very tropical and fruity. Massive orange notes with pineapple and grapefruit. Nice hop character in the nose.
T - Huge hop blast with similar qualities of the smell coming through. Lots of orange and tangerine. I read from somewhere that this like the Sunny D of IPAs and I can definitely confirm that! Amazing balance with not a lot of bitterness in the finish.
M - Smooth, but a little too malt forward for my liking. Doesn't subtract much for the enjoy-ability of the beer though.
O - An amazing feat of a beer by Odell. My current favorite of their offerings and one of the best IPA experiences I've had. So glad to have this year round and available near me.

2.9/5 rDev -32.6%
Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 33 cl snifter. Best by date 6.12.13.
Look- Pale amber with two and a half fingers of dense white suds that fall slowly to a tight cap, light haze. Ropes of sticky lace adorn the glass as it empties.
Smell- Sweet, mucho pineapple. Not much else makes it through; swirling brings out lemon candy and honeydew melon. Very, very sweet, but not entirely off-putting with the fruit accompaniment.
Taste- Much like the aroma, very sweet and hop-driven. Light treacle and pineapple, starfruit. Moderate bitterness on the back end with a touch of booze- rather than playing nicely the bitterness accentuates the booze and gives the overall impression/aftertaste of gin.
Mouthfeel- Medium-full, moderate to high carbonation. Chewy. Fairly boozy, warming and some harshness after the swallow.
Overall- Pretty middling for a DIPA; nothing I've not seen before and borderline overhopped, too boozy for my liking. If you're of the "More hops! Higher ABV!" mindset, you'll probably like this, but I'm not really a fan.
