Thanks to blue_bleeder for the great hookup.

Appearance: Slight chill haze on a deep honey copper. Head Head is white, fluffy, and dense with moderate retention. Some nice sheets of lacing.

Smell: Macerated and obliterated peach flesh. Ripe and unerripe peach in abundance. Bready malt backbone with some caramelized malt sweetness. Spicy alcohol esters and a touch of herbal and citrus hops. It's all peach and alcohol. Some mild tropical aromas, pineapple and mango. Nice fresh fruit. Apricot. A touch grassy. Surprisingly balanced. Warming ups the fruit sweetness and let's the peach run.

Taste: The nose hits it. Tons of mealy fruit. Fresh smashed peach with a lingering syrupy sweetness. Hops run a touch of citrus with an herbal undertone. Hints of tropical fruit - mainly pineapple with some juicy tangerine. Alcohol is sharp on the back and leaves the associated alcohol spicy esters. malts are lightly bready with some biscuit notes and a bit of caramelized malt. A touch sweet through the back. Peach is everywhere, but not overbearing. Enhances the juicy fruity hop element.

Mouthfeel: Slick medium body with a clean finish. Moderate carbonation. Wet and a bit juicy.

Overall: So many peaches.

A nice DIPA, but falls a little short of the Odell pedigree. The peach is well used and well executed. Good, but not groundbreaking.

Gf brought from Morgan's Liquor store and poured me a snifter.

A&S: Very lively transparent light peach colored beer (as dumb as that sounds). Pours about a finger of fluffy head and retains well. The head also leaves a good amount of lacing. The aroma has a tart fruitness to it, sugary fruitness comes through not necessarily, but mostly as peach, but also maybe some apricots. No real elements of hops.

T&M: Not tart as the smell would make you assume. Peaches come through much better towards the end of the bottle (due to some parts settling out). A big positive this beer has going for it is that it isn't ultra sweet like some DIPA get. A little hot, but not nearly as hot as you expected at 10%. Very slight touch of bitterness. Much smoother than I expected considering that it looked very lively.

Overall: 750ml bottle went for a little over $14, so not that bad of a price for +10% ABV. I would say my biggest knock on this beer is it's lack of hops. I would categorize this beer under maybe an imperial blond, but it is hard to justify putting it as a DIPA. It wouldn't be something I would buy again, however I'm glad I tasted it. I would probably recommend seeking it out at a tap house vs buying a bottle.

Thin, wispy, white, bubbly head. Brew is kinda foggy, orange in color. Weak lacing. Medium viscosity.

Not typical aroma for Odell IPAs. Lots of Apricot, peach, citrus... Kinda Papery.

Well. It's wet. Fairly drinkable. Weird funk passes by at the backend of the flavors. Dry on finish that never really ends...? Carbonation Is way too much and detracts from the experience. Earthy, fruity, moderately sweet, Funky yeast flavors. Carmel malt backbone is a bit too much for me. Not picking up nearly as much peach flavors as on the nose. I wish it was more creamy and less acidic.

Ho-Hum. I'm kinda not so high on this one... Weird. IMO, Odell has had a few misses, this is one. Not sure I'd recommend especially @ $13/750ml. Not quite a mess, but very haphazard; needs further blending and love. Aroma is a tick away from perfect, but the feel and flavors are a bit too abstract for my liking.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Nice light yellow-orange color. Aroma is peaches but also this weird plasticky aroma. Flavor was much the same, just frickin weird. This tasted nothing like an IPA to me, mroe like a Belgian with peaches added. I would have been so disappointed if I had paid the $16 for a bottle of this, what a joke.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a seriously murky peach orange that almost looks like fruit juice with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that slowly receded, down to a medium puddled film and collar with excellent sheets of sticky lacing.

The aroma was of pine hops from the get go along with a caramel malt and a lightly sweet yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit), a decent odor of peaches and a bit of apricot.

The taste was mildly malty sweet with just a touch of caramel and a strong peach presence pretty much throughout. The finish progressed slowly, with a nice hoppy bitterness and a bit of citrus towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, with the peachy fruity taste giving way slightly to a mild hoppy bitterness and a slowly creeping alcohol warming.

Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a mildly dry texture and a carbonation that just exceeded mild in voracity.

Overall this was an intriguing IPA with a lightly sweet fruitiness, which I have to say mixed superbly with the piney citrus bitterness this brew possesses allowing for a rather good concealment of the high ABV, thus creating a nice smooth tasty drinking experience…
