Notes: Rupture was born out of our obsession with getting the most out of each and every hop. In fact, we built a machine in our brewery to incorporate a unique fresh grind process. By grinding the whole hop we “rupture” the lupulin inside – releasing the oils that give the beer its flavor. And what we grind that day we use that day. Leaving you a beer that’s fresh, aromatic, with a bright hoppy character.

6pk cans from Austin market. BB 03/20/20...easy to see, easy to read.
Pours clear gold. Great creamy head. Bubble activity is slightly weak, but okay.
Aroma is quite least it is when its cold.
Taste is light, refreshing, not fruity but more on the bready/piney end. Easy to drink, not filling, no dryness. no astringency. Refreshing and sessionable. A good summertime beer.

Seen this one so many times, finally bought. A wonderful, juicy APA. Good citrus hop and malt balance. Slight bitterness, candied hop and slight pepper

Arguably a new favorite for me! Great hazy, orange-yellow, head and lace as expected from draft pour. Hoppy, but not overkill. Tons of flavor from fruity to pine to just good ole yummy. Try this one when you need to remind yourself why you love craft beer.

3.94/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, orange-copper color with a moderate, white head that looks like a snowbank. SRM of 12. (4.00)

Aroma: Strong aromas of tropical fruit, grapefruit, and lemon. Tons of dark and sweet mango, passionfruit, pineapple with some light pithy grapefruit, lemon and pine underneath. (4.25)

Flavor: Flavor follows the nose with lots of mango, guava, passionfruit, and ripe pineapple. A strong honey and fruity malt sweetness follows. Mild airy pine bitterness on the end. Showcases the hops well, yet finishes rather sweet. (3.75)

Feel: Medium-bodied. Medium to low carbonation. (3.75)

Overall: A very flavorful and hop flavored pale ale. Tons of hop and lots of sweetness. All tropical fruit hops and tropical fruit sweetness. For a pale ale, this is one of the better I have had. Sweeter, yet shows the flavors well. (Final Rating: 3.94)

It's a very smooth beer, Very crisp easy feel. Odell continues to impress me with the variety of their beers. It's strong enough to be an IPA but feel lighter than that.

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a decent amount of foam / which dissipated quickly. Foam ring and lacing continue. Smells strongly of mango and peach. Some pine and cattiness as well. Sweet caramel flavors come through after a slight bitter hop bite. Stays sweet for a bit and dries out a fair amount. Big line flavors in the after taste. Feel is a bit thin but barely in the medium bodied category. Overall a very flavorful IPA. Well balanced and Hoppy. Would buy again....quite refreshing.

Draft at the Mangy Moose in Jackson, WY. Pours a c;ear amber-gold with a modest off-white head. Initial impression is citrus, orange, grapefruit, mango, and sweet caramel malts. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky; carbonation is OK. Finish is sticky and sweet, with a lingering hops bitterness. OK but not something I'd seek out.

On tap, pours a clear gold. An inch of foam dissipates quickly. Smell and taste are very floral with a little fruit mixed in. Grainy finish. Not bitter. Okay beer.

A fine IPA served on tap at Alamo Drafthouse on Slaughter Lane in Austin, TX on a 97 degree June, 2019 day. The light finish was the best part for me as the rest of the experience was in line with the rest of the Odell line. In other words, nothing distinguishing.

Looks just like it should, light golden. Smells of plenty of fruity, citrusy hops. Smells like an ipa. Tastes very fruity and some sweet malt to balance it. Overall it's a great pale ale. Smells and tastes like a big ipa but drinks like an easy pale ale.

Poured into a tulip a hazy golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which also leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, guava), piney. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, guava), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a single serve can into a tulip.

Pours a medium-gold slightly hazy and shimmering with a nice foamy two finger head that lingers well.

The aroma has a solid honey malt sweetness with hints of fruitiness balanced well with lemon, orange, mango, pineapple and herbal notes.

The flavor has a solid initial malty/sweet note on the tip of the tongue, followed by an array of citrus flavors, including orange zest, ruby red grapefruit, lemon and lime. The back of the tongue is greeted by white pepper, white grape, and hints of hop resin. The flavor is good, but somewhat subdued.

The brew is not "crisp" or "light" but isn't really all the way to "medium." Excellent carbonation lift, and finish.

Overall a solid APA.

Goes down light, crisp and clean with more light fruits and florals and a lingering piney, grapefruity bitterness.

Amazing what good things happen when your state updates it's liquor laws. Welcome to O'dell. It's been a long

A bright gold with a bleach white head. It doesn't entirely dissipate, but quickly turns into a very thin top layer.

Citrusy hops right in your face!

Medium Dry with a healthy dose of carb

A light maltiness with tons of citrus hops. Not overly bitter, but heavy floral and citrusy hops!

If you're looking to get some hops, but not have an overly bitter beer, this is what you're looking for. It displays all the nice and approachable part of hops, without drowning the malt out with bitter.

I got this off the single shelf from a Binnys near my old stomping grounds. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had orange peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with sweet fruit at the front then finish with bitter citrus. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

L- Pours a golden beer with a frothy head. Looks the part.
S- Immediate piney and grassy hop is present. Extremely fresh and well grounded.
T- Piney, grassy and citrusy. Fresh and well fleshed out Pale Ale. Slightly sweet, very fresh. Bitterness is handled extremely well. Doesn't pack a powerful punch but the bitterness is there.
F- Light bodied, refreshing.
O- Just a really damn good Pale ale, and one of the best I've had of the style in a long time. That's really all it is. Just an extremely refreshing beer that rivals Sierra Nevada for sure.

Where is the love? Found this to be a throw back pale ale in composition, with tons of fresh dank and spicy hops to go with orange, lemon, pale malts and grass. Hops actually more explosive in taste than smell, but both rewarding. Feel is hop sharp with plenty of body to ground the resin.

Looks great, big head with good lacing, clear, golden yellow-orange IPA color. Smell and taste are an overload on vegetal hops without being medicinal or bitter. Light and slick feel, easy to drink

I don't care what they say: this is an IPA. This isn't like pseudo sue or something similar where the line is blurred but you still know the difference. This one falls firmly in IPA territory

Bright gold color. Thick white head that persisted well. A lot of sticky lace.
Bread and citrus aroma.
Grapefruit taste that lingered throughout. Bread.
Lighter-bodid. Pleasant beer.

12 oz. can:

Pours hazed yellow with a creamy white head that leaves lacing.\u
The smell is of musty resin, grapefruit and fresh bread.

The taste is musty/dank and citric. Hop-forward but balanced by sweet bread to keep it in APA territory.

Very creamy and smooth this is a wonderful APA. Easy to drink and very enjoyable.

A six pack was given to me as a gift for installing an outdoor electrical outlet and circuit breaker for a friend.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass.

My nose instantly detects the smell of a freshly peeled grapefruit from two feet away. The color is light amber. The head dissipates fairly quickly, leaving a very scant lacing. There is nice lacing at the bottom of the glass, if you are into that sort of thing.

The mouthfeel is not sticky at all, and just a tad on the dry side. I am trying to find something to say besides grapefruit, and I decided on a hint of carambola, or starfruit, which I miss from my time of living in South Florida.

I assumed that this was an IPA, with all those hops, but it is just a pale ale, surprise! Now I see the pucker factor just isn’t very prevalent, and alcohol level is low for an American IPA. Still, I scratch my head. But it is my kind of pale ale to be sure!

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

Golden appearance with high clarity. Very clean yet very strong hop smell that I would call herbal, sweet, and inviting. Higher ABV than the flavor suggested. Calming hop flavor initially followed by a bitter flavor and dry aftertaste. Seltzer-like carbonation with a full or heavy body.
Overall a good beer that I enjoy mainly because of the aroma, I enjoy IPA's because of the intensity of the hops but I especially love those that are not very bitter throughout.

Hazy light orangish pour with thick white foamy head.
Smells of light tropical fruit/ some melon.
Taste is an earthy/ grindy/ slightly grainy beer with mildly flavored yet bright citrus hops...but after each sip I want more because it all comes off so clean.
Feels medium-bodied and slick.
This APA is an Odell beer that I’d get again.
