Found a bottle at Four Firkins in Minneapolis. The best by date states it's good for another two-and-a-half months. Poured right from the bottle into my Lakefront pint glass.

L: Pours a bright golden straw with about an inch of eggshell head that falls after a bit but leaves nice lacing. Very clear, with moderate visible carbonation.

S: Beautiful bouquet on this one: some very assertive grapefruit, stone fruit, and grassy hop notes come through loud and clear. Just a touch of pine and herbal funk, as well. Fresh and inviting.

T: Luscious is a good word to describe this one: very fruit-forward hop profile, with great notes of grapefruit, stone fruit, and a bit of pineapple. The front has some cracker malt, but the fruity hop notes are there immediately, delivering tons of flavor with very little in the way of bitter. There are some bubblegum notes in the middle, as well. The close is strong on the grapefruit hop notes, but it delivers more tartness than bitterness. This one, overall, has much less bitterness than the nose suggested.

F: On the light side of medium-bodied, perfectly carbonated, and clean-finishing. It's got a creamy quality and--again--very little in the way of syrupy stick or bitterness.

O: This is a fantastic IPA--one of the best, if not the best, fruit-forward single IPAs I've had. This one probably won't please those hop heads who really want that bitter linger at the end of their IPAs, but it should suit everyone else just fine. I will definitely return to this one.

Solid IPA but not to the standards of Dogfish head or Lagunitas IPAs

3.84/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Look: Hazy golden amber. Short head hangs around. light carbonation.

Smell: Little Lemony. Little Piney. Little Minty.

Taste: More pine than on the nose. Sweet malts are complimented nicely by the subtle lemony citrus notes. Fairly complex and very well balanced. Not very bitter

Feel: Body is pretty close to perfect. Finishes fairly dry. a little oily.

Overall: Not a very bad everyday sixer. Don't really think it's as great as some other IPAs I've had. Can't really think of a situation I'd actively seek this one out. There are other daily sixers I'd much rather have. Maybe if I'm in Fort Collins.

Poured a golden/orange color with a bit fat fluffy two finger head. Great retention and lacing. Big citrusy orange aroma, as well as some piney notes and just a hint of sweetness. Flavor has lots of grapefruit and orange peel and a nice malty backbone, very well balanced. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Overall, just an outstanding IPA- one of the best out there that's not a double or an imperial. Hats off to you Odell!
