Appearance – This beer is gold in color and not that dark for being an IPA. The head retention is fantastic with nice lacing that lasts all the way through drinking a pint.

Smell – The smell sells you on this beer. There is a big wave of citrus fruits (oranges and tangerines) off the aroma hops. But you don’t get slammed with big hop bitterness or earthiness.

Taste – For an IPA lover, this is a tour through a great American West Coast IPA. It’s a very smooth and balanced drink with a dryer finish. The carbonation level helps to cut off some of the hop bitterness as well. But you really taste the citrus off the hops and a little bit of herbs.

Drink – Even at 7% this is a sessionable IPA. Where many IPA scorch your tongue with IBU levels and hop bitterness, O’Dell offers a beer that celebrates American IPAs, but allows you to celebrate them all night long. It’s no surprise that Cicero’s sells out commonly when they get this beer in bottle or draft. I’d highly recommend getting it while you can!

poured from a tap it came out with an amber-orange hue and a creamy looking white head.

immediate hop spice hits the nose. refreshing pine and clean citrus combine to make it work.

taste was a refreshing hop with pine and citrus character. a hint of malt brings the balance together well. also detect a slight creaminess in the flavor.

mouthfeel is creamy and refreshing. definetly a drinkable beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Beautiful golden pour completely translusent
with lazy but visible carbonation. There is a
scant head with little to no lacing.

S: Nice citrus nose

T: Fruit juicy but also fruit juicy slick.
There is a bitterness at the swallow but
not so strong and unfortunately lingering.

M: This IPA is slick on the pallet going down, a
little too sticky.

D: Not sturdy enough for me, just better than
your average IPA. A beautiful beer.
