Got as an extra from bonsreeb85. Thanks dude!

A- Pours a deep golden color with a huge foamy white head. Nice sticky lacing rings all the way down.

S- Huge whiff of grapefruit and orange peel. Big citrusy hop aroma. A bit of pine and some spice. This beer smells like its going to be a great IPA.

T- Nice rush of citrus grapefruit and piney hop bitterness. A nice light caramel malt sweetness is present in the finish for balance.

M- Medium body with lots of carbonation.

D- This is one fine IPA. I must say that I have had the pleasure of trying a few fine hoppy beers from Colorado and none of them have disappointed.

12 oz bottle poured into a globe glass

A-- Poured a slighty orange yellow color. Nearly clear, as just a small bit of haze. Short lived bright white head. At best one finger. Same on swirling.

S-- Candied orange, candied pineapple and good pine background. Lovely nose.

T-- Slick and oily taste. More about orange, pineapple, and mango. More it warms the more the pine bites back.

M-- Creamy, lots of pine and grapefruit bitterness. No oily taste in the mouth though. More in the taste though.

O-- Excellent IPA. Very drinkable and can have a few easily. Not massive bitter but complex and well rounded.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Golden yellow in color, I think it's filtered, but it does have the slightest of slight haze. White frothy head with various sized bubbles, really good lacing and it sticks around.

Smell is outstanding. Big time hoppy, lots of citrus, grapefruit, fresh pineapple and sappy pine. Hops are the backbone of the aroma, but there is certainly a malt presence, toasted caramelized pale mats.

Taste is also excellent. It's hoppy, but pretty well balanced, which I wasn't quite expecting based on the smell. Each sip attacks each taste bud. Actually starts a little sweet, the malts provide a slight hint of caramel and honey. The hops quickly follow. Grapefruit and pineapple flavors with a followed by tones of nectar and pine, slight herbal tones as well.

Mouthfeel is darn tootn' good. Light bodied, well balanced and crisp, clean bitter finish. Great drinkablility slightly dry at the end, very good.

Thanks chugalug06 for the trade, really good IPA!

A&S: Big orange and lemon citrus hoppyness upfront. Subdued malty backbone. Lively yellow/orange transparent colored beer. WIth a 1 and a half finger white head when poured which settles in a thin layer. Great lacing on this beer; big thick lines.

T&M: Big spicy and grassy tones upfront. Bitter finish, but not super intense. Medium bodied and on the high side of medium for carbonation.

Overall: Very drinkable and enjoyable beer. So far I would say this is the best beer I have tried since I moved out of Michigan. Looking forward to trying some more from this brewery

On tap at Odell. Another excellent example of a solid IPA. Very good. Lots of bitterness with tons of flowery aroma and taste.

Poured a 12oz bottle into my Chimay chalice. This beer pours a burnt orange color with a big 2 inch white fluffy head that mellows into a lily pad on the top of the beer. Only mild lacing is present as the beer recedes. The aroma is fresh squeezed orange juice, grapefruit and what seemed almost like tart green apples followed up by just a hint of malty sweetness. This beers aroma is one of the fruitiest that I have ever had the pleasure of quaffing. The taste is strong orange notes with mild grapefruit tartness and just a hint of pine. It's very balanced between the hops and the malt backbone but I was expecting a little more hop bite at the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and resiny, leaving a nice coating in your mouth. Odell's makes some of the most superb beers on the market and this one is right up there with their best.
