Nice foamy off white head that settles slowly. Sheets of creamy, clinging lace. Hazy orange color. Looks great.

Nose of citrusy hops. Great flavor - extremely detailed hop characteristics, lots of grapefruit and pineapple. Citrus notes emphasized over pine. Very gently malt backbone, restrained sweetness. Bitterness hides out underneath all the yummy flavors.

Medium carbonation, fairly dry finish. Alcohol is not noticed.

One of the very best IPA's I've had this year; rivals Union Jack, Flower Power, Green Flash and the rest. Wish I could get this at home, I'd drink it all the time very happily!

Beer sent to me in a trade by mizzouguy, thanks! FINALLY, I've been wanting this beer for over a year. At the time of this review, this is the #30 top American IPA on beeradvocate.com. Served from a bottle into a New Belgium globe glass.

Beer is orange / amber and pretty hazy, almost read, nice white head of small bubbles lots of lacing and moderate carbonation.

Aroma is CTZ and pine all the way, hints of malt sneak through.

Beer is medium in body and a little malty on the lead off but that gives way to a nice earthy and piny hop presence on the forward late palate. The finish is a little heavy, could have been made dryer so that the bitterness is accented more but I like it a lot. Overall this is a very good IPA, at the end once it warmed up some of the hop charm wears off and you are left with a relatively heavy single IPA but I thoroughly enjoyed it, would have it again and am looking forward to the second bottle mizzouguy included in the box, thanks again.

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.

Had a bottle after dinner. It poured clear amber with a tall white head and a bit of lacing. This is one fine IPA. Like my favorites in the style, it picks a few big bold notes to build the character around instead having a big blend. Here I'm hit with a resinous floral perfume and then a candied grapefruit aroma. Both of these carry over into the flavor, making a bitter beer that has a great mix of clean citrus fruit and earthy hop spice. It's a delicious contrast. The beer is a bit strong for my liking, but damn it's tasty.

A solid IPA, finally having it on tap.

Orangy color, more golden though. Bright. Nice white foamy cap, great lacing all the way through.

Aroma is subdued a bit, I'm betting b/c of the temperature at serving. usuals are there though. Citrus and some caramel. Light breadiness. Pine needles on the end

As with the bottle, this is a well balanced IPA. Not a hop head's dream, but the hops ain't shy. Citrus, zest, pine and bread. Good bite to it. Nice and bold.

Really nice IPA, and I love the label! Thanks very much to RedHaze for the chaance to try this beer. Pours golden with a short head and some spotty lacing. Smells of citrusy hops, some light graininess, and with some creamy notes with a touch of sweetness from the malt. The taste is solid. Nice citrusy flavor balanced perfectly by some sweet malt. Simple and delicious. If I were local, this would be my every day IPA. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy and this one is a pleasure to drink.
