Hazy pale amber with one finger of bone color head that lasts about ten minutes. Rings of lace.
Smell is hop resin citrus and slight leather.
Taste is rich bready malts piney resinous citrus zest .
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Finish is moderately dry and bitter.
Overall a very tasty well crafted American IPA. Glad I found this beer.

This beer pours a clear gold with a large head. The aroma offers medium light malts, orange peel, grapefruit peel, pine, and earthy tones. The flavor again has a mild malt characteristic, with grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, with pine on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and foamy. Overall this is a nice, classically flavored IPA.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 1-12-17.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, copper color with one-finger white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there is significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, caramel, pine and citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel and bread then an oily, pine hop profile that lingered.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good traditional IPA, I would buy this again and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

Another one of those auburn colored ipas. 1/3" head, good lace down the glass. Aroma was earthy and not popping with hops of the pine, tropical or citrus variety.

Woody impressions, malty, had me guessing if this was an English ipa? Or just old? Plenty of crystal malt giving caramel impressions. Slightly boozy.

I dont get the love for this, will try again since O'dells is one of my fave CO breweries, but I dunno man.

On tap at brewery:
Clear classic orange IPA color. A mass of off-white head adorns the beer well into the pour.

Nose is a little grainy - like brew day, probably not helped by a somewhat dry grassy bitterness. There's also a light citrus rind note as well. Grapefruit starts to show itself wit some warmth.

Taste is a step up in impression, though it is reminiscent of the nose. Definitely more bitterness than the nose would indicate, which is a nice "correction" for me. Green citrus rind and pith, with a hint of pine wood in the end.

A fairly classic IPA in general, but a little more grainy (not malty, though) in its flavor. It doesn't quite get as piney as some, but sticks to a pithy bitterness that is present much of the taste, and draws on the tongue by mid-taste through the end.

Look is solid gold! Lacing is exceptional. Smell is pine and citrus. Taste is smooth hop goodness. Mouthfeel is just the right amount of lasting oily goodness. Very good beer. Interesting combination of hops.
