12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark yellow with a huge rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malts and resiny fruity hops.

The flavor is bready malt with resiny fruity grassy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a decent session IPA.

Appearance: Semi-cloudy golden, with a huge foamy head. Thick and messy lace.

Aroma: Sweet floral and tropical hops. Wow!

Taste: Very unusual, with lots of tropical here — citrus, pineapple, and mango leading the way. This is a smooth-drinking ale with a dry finish. Very tasty session IPA that I’d love to return to (if I could get Odell here in Indiana)!

Odell is one of my very favorite breweries; even with that disclaimer, Splice is an excellent "session" IPA. One of the few that feels like a true IPA as opposed to a hopped-up Pils. Nice balance of flavors here, and light while feeling substantial in comparison to many of its competitors.

Draught pour at Pounders. One of the better season IPAS I've had. Plenty of astringency, nice amount of body. Nose could be more potent, but still enjoyable nonetheless. I'd definitely get this again, and if it saw distro in CA I'd put it into my lawnmower rotation of Fortunate Islands, GoTo, Pinner and All Day.

Yep, it's another session IPA. Odell always gets the benefit of the doubt from me, even if I'm pretty much over the session IPA trend. This one was pretty good, nothing that jumped off the page but very drinkable. Well-balanced, as all of their beers tend to be, and flavorful despite the lower ABV. Nice to include in the summer Montage pack but not something I'd buy a six-pack of on its own, simply because we have IPA overload in these parts.

this is damn good from odell. way better than their loose leaf, and one of the better session india pales in colorado right now. im not sure if this is made with any fruit or not, but there is mandarin and tangerine citrus absolutely bursting out of this thing. if its all hops, then wow. zest and fruit alike, this is so citrusy, and its not just the citra hops from what i can tell, but a much more awesome collection of different strains and likely even some fruit. its just so summery and radiant. a little oranger than golden, but not by much, crystal clear, and with a full inch of slowly relaxing white head. its not so much an ipa to me though, as i dont find it real bitter or anything, and the hops are somehow not even that hoppy, or they are, and its just foreign to me, but there is so much fresh orange going on in this that i think fruited pale before ipa. i know thats crazy, but when this beer is fresh, thats what it tastes like. dry though, very well carbonated, and coming on late with some grassier hops too. so refreshing and crushable, i hope this makes it to six packs and isnt just stuck in an irrelevant mixed twelver like a lot of these end up being. this is so good, my favorite hoppy beer of the summer seasons so far. beautifully done odell!

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a best by date of 9/6/16; into a Sam Adam's perfect pint glass.
Apperance - very yellow in color; plenty of bubbles; head is medium, white and bubbly. Lacing is thick and sticky towards the bottom.
Smell - juicy tropical and citrus fruit notes!
Taste - moderately flavorful, like most session IPAs; tropical and citrus fruits are more powerful in the nose.
Feel - best part of this beer! Doesn't feel nearly as light as it's 4.8 ABV; excellent bitterness with little to no sweetness; straight crusher!
Overall - if the tropical and citrus flavors were stronger, this would be outstanding.
