simply a wonderful APA, easy drinking, yet flavorful and satisfying. easy to have a couple of this beer. I like that it also comes in cans for hiking, picnics and really any outdoor activity. Goes good with sun and a light breeze!

Hazy orange color, good head. Nice aromas, tropical and mildly juicy. Same thing as far as the flavor goes. This isn't going to impress the haze craze crowd but it is a solid, easy to drink pale ale with a nice tropical fruit hop flavor.

12 oz. can poured into willibecher.

A- Gold-pale orange in color and slightly hazy. White head is delicate, but holds pretty well, and leaves some good lacing.

S- Very fresh sweet citrus, some tropical notes, and faint pine. A nice light toasty malt backbone.

T- Fresh sweet and juicy citrus. Orange. Some pineapple. Toast malt comes in, along with that light pine character.

M- Body is light. Sweetness throughout with a nice balancing bitterness. Easy drinker.

O- Really nice. Good juicy notes, without being too overbearing in ABV. Clean and easy to knock back.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 3/29/2018. Pours slightly hazy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, light honey, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, light honey, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly crisp/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is a delicious American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Really great balance of vibrant hops and bready malts. Stated as having Centennial, Mosaic, Cascade, Chinook, Simcoe, Azacca, Bravo, and Citra hops; so there is a hell of a lot going on, but it all comes together really well. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Light, hazy and bright like a late summer's evening. Difficult to find here in Ireland but worth searching out. A delicious easy drinking APA.

Drumroll pours a hazy golden color, with a huge, lacing and long lasting head. Big fresh and floral aroma. Flavor is full, lots of floral notes, with a slightly dry finish. Body is flat. Overall, very good strong Pale Ale.

What. A. Good. Beer. Got this on a whim from a Binny's mix 6. Pretty cloudy, gold, with a nice white head. Fruit and toasted grain on the nose. Taste followed suit, especially the citrus. A little hop forward for an APA. Unfamiliar with Odell but looking forward to trying what else they've got!

Picked a six pack of this up from Craft a few weeks ago. Pours a light orange and amber color, 1/3" white head. Decent hop aromatics, seems like there is some citra in here.

Taste a pretty good pale ale. Sticks to the lighter body instead of going heavy ipa style. Lightly toasted pale and honey malt it seems. Hops mix a mild amount of bitterness and a heavier amount of citrus flavors. Nothing about the beer is heavy, its a nice restrained pale ale that drops a good amount of citrus. O'Dells has been making great beer for a few decades now. This is the best thing I've had from them in awhile, wasn't really seeing much from them.

Good to know they've created a proprietary hopped beer with low bitterness and full enjoyability.

Pours a somewhat hazy apricot yellow/orange with a thick white head that recedes fairly quickly and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is Trix oranges and lemons. The flavor is a nice blend of hops and malt with the citrus fruits and a slight bitter aftertaste. The feel is soft and maybe a bit under carbonated. Overall a fine beer.

Pours a hazy orange gold with small head and minor lacing. Aroma is a hint of citrus and tropical fruit and malt. Taste is juicy ripe, tropical fruit and very mild malt background supporting. This has some elements New England IPA, some elements west coast Blondr ale. All-in-all, it’s still a very drinkable session pale ale - a more modern, hop flavorful, less bitter pale ale than old school APAs like Sierra Nevada and Summit EPA. I really appreciate the tropical, juicy hop levels, that are not over-the-top in the hops department, which makes this a well-balanced, yet hoppy beer.
