This beer was poured into a pint glass. As it was poured it created a fair amount of head but the retention was a little lacing. The aroma is of a sweater hops smell giving a note of a good balance of hops and malts. The taste of the beer is of a medium dryer amount of hops. The coriander and malt is slight but barly there. The aftertaste is a decent one but not something that makes you crave them.

One of my favorite IPAs out there. This is simply a great balance of everything in an IPA. Not overly hoppy and yet a great balance with the malt. Lots of citrus in the smell and taste. Great orange color to the beer. I wish the foam lasted a little longer, but the taste is still amazing. I don't find too many IPAs that I can drink all day like this one. Well done Odell!

12oz bottle from 6-pack bought at Wal-Mart $7.64

best buy date 10/5 /13

Poured into tulip pint glass
A: Pours a half-fingered head but with incredible lacing that never dissipates . Hazy burnt copper color. This beer is a thing of beauty.
S: Huge citrus aroma upfront: definitely lemon zest and tangerines, the hops are there for sure . Subtle pine scent in the background.
T: Taste follows the nose here; sweet citrus flavor upfront, some buscuity malts through the middle, with a bitter hops kick in the finish.
M: Starts off crisp and clean, but then the malts smooth it all out and pull everything together.

O: While i'm not a huge fan of most IPA's, I do find this one quite enjoyable. If I had to sum this one up in a few words, very balanced. Most AIPAs that I have tried are usually one dimensional, with the bitter profile being the dominate aspect. With this one, all its elements work in harmony to create a very complex, yet smooth beverage. And somehow the 7% abv and 70 ibu are so well hidden, you almost forget that its an IPA. Probably the craziest thing is that I bought this masterpiece at Freakin Wal-Mart.

Pours a light, hazy orange with an off white head. The aroma is outstanding of tangel, grapefruit, light grain and just a bit of a pine note. It is makin me thirsty. The taste follows the aroma perfectly. Starts with the sweeter citrus then quickly moves to the grapefruit bitterness. This is amazingly smooth, almost creamy and begs you to take another sip. Very clean finish with just a little bitter bite after it is gone. A very good example of the style, one of the best.

Amber orange in color with 2 fingers of white head. Solid lacing. Hop smell jumps out. Pine, grassy. I could sit and smell this beer all day! The bitterness of the hops is there in the taste, but not the same distinct flavors. A bit of the malt sweetness comes through. Solid beer, but the hop flavor could use refinement.
