This is a perfect beer. In fact it's the beer that first turned me on to the APA style. Pours pinkish/orange with a minimal head as well as minimal lacing (at least in my case). Smells light and floral, definitely citrusy, and almost piney..? Tastes citrusy and mildly hoppy, very very well balanced in terms of yeast, hop character, and citrus. Smooth feel, not overly carbonated and not assaulting. Overall, Odell proves once again that they are superiors brewers. I definitely will have this again.

Cask at Papago. Aroma was that of grassy type hops. Some malt background but faint. Carbonation was low but appropriate for a cask conditioned beer. Flavor was rich two row malt with plenty of wonderful hop flavor. Odells did a great job dry hopping the beer. Again, very grassy flavor, not to much citrus. One of the best cask beers I've had in a long time.

Picked this up at Goebel in Wichita...

Pours honey colored with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. very good head retention & lacing

S: Citrus hops, by the bushel; plus some grassy & floral action

T: Grapefruitty & tangerine hops, a touch of honey malt & dryness up front. Slight pear fruittyness followed lemony & grapefruitty hops as this warms, plus some crackery notes. Finishes crisp, semi-dry with much citrus

MF: Medium-bodied, crisp with restrained carbonation & good balance

Trough the roof sessionability, I sure hope this stays in the rotation. One of the better APAs (not including AIPAS calling themselves APAs) out there IMHO

This is my go-to beer when I can get it, and my first review. Pours a golden honey color, very appetizing. The head is thin, white,and ephemeral. When you drink you get hit with a flowers/grass/orange, but as it warms up it's more like pine. The best from Odell and one of my favorite beers, gonna go grab another.

One of the best beers from Odell. I'm counting the days till the new batch comes out. It's one of the great summer time drinkers. With the heavy hop taste but a light easy drinking finish. It should be back in stores over the next couple of months. Texas is in for a great surprise this summer. Welcome to the big show!
