Enjoyed on-tap @ Cicero's in The Loop (St. Louis), MO for $4.75. Tapped from the Odell Tap Handle into a Clear, Non-Labeled 16oz Pint Glass.

Aroma- Has a strong citrus hop character from the beginning and low amounts of malt in between. A bit bready when it comes down to it and somehow this sneaks through the citrus aroma.

Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that dies quickly. Has a dark golden body that is clear and leaves rings of lace behind.

Flavor- Very malty and just has a touch of hops here... Not enough pop to the mouth while an APA should usually. Has a light bitterness at the finish but mostly a very clean taste.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Smooth, and has a sweeter finish.

Overall Impression- Very refreshing but not enough hop or flavor for me. This style is usually VERY hoppy and this brew would be perfect if it had more of this. Love Odell Brewing but fell short on this one for me...

Bottel from Boise Co-op. Mildly bitter pale ale, golden with wispy head. Very mild hop aroma, dry hops and malt in the taste, dry finish. I thought this was just Ok, not great....

Clear amber colored ale with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells strongly of grapefruit and mint. Slight willow tree scent.

Starts out savory with a caramel after taste. Mildly sweet with some woodiness and a mild hop flavor. Caramel and citrus flavor with a little cedar plank.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall a decent APA.

Thanks to Sara and Craus for this one. Bottle code: 9/3/13D. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy yellow, with just a bit of an orange tint, with less than 1/4 inch of off-white head that had very low retention and very light lacing.

The aroma had some light malts upfront and underneath, then mostly citrus hops, with a bit of pine in the background. On the tongue, The was pretty much the same, a nice base malt, with citrus and pine hops making for a nicely balanced brew.

The medium body was good, very smooth and with a nicely dry finish. Drinkability was very good, the beer went down quickly and easily, and you could slide several down with no trouble. Overall, a pretty nice beer. Not really outstanding or memorable, but certainly enjoyable and worth a shot if you see it.

Picked up a 6 pack of bottles for $7.99

Poured from the brown bottle into a pub glass. About an inch of foamy white head forms up, receding slowly and leaving a thin cap with sticky full coverage lace.
The beer itself appears fairly light, golden transparent yellow, resembling a pils or somthing other then an apa. Lets just say the color is not doing anything for the beer.

Aroma is terrific. Plenty of fresh hops with an intense dank weed aroma. Bittering pineapple, grapefruit and leafy floral hops. A touch of green tea. Just a bit of buttered rolls too with a hint at sweetness.

Mouthfeel is slick with a full bodied feel and mild carbonation, making this ultra smooth.

Hops in flavor are not the same as what aroma put off.
Creating a balancing act on the pallet. a mild sweetness to start the becomed muted fruity hops that turn to a more wet cardboard flavor of hops. Malt shines through with a buttery bready yeast flavor. Hops are much more herbal in taste. A mild green tea flavor with herbal leaf.

A decent brew, but I'm not a fan of the color and flavor seemed to lack a bit. What was great in aroma was not as noticeable in taste. Still a good beer, but I had higher hopes.

An interesting beer...not sure what to call it
Poured into a tulip

Medium amber color with small amount of lacing

No dominant aroma, a little piney and fresh hops

A nice sharp clean bitterness and maybe a biscuit-y bit.

Overall pleasant, clean mouthfeel and little aftertaste make it very drinkable.

Dated 10/18/12A

A - Pours a light, slightly hazy orange with a large near-white head that lasts forever and leaves tons of lacing.

S - Very subtle all-around. Subtle malts and a tiny bit of hops.

T - Very similar to the nose. Subtle pale malts and a hint of hops.

D - Tons of carbonation and a lighter body.

O - A very pale ale with a hint of hops.

Smell: overwhelming sense of citrus which Is um... Discouraging for me. Hops aren't quite there (quite what I expected) the hops I do smell are happy hops. 3.25/5

Look: looks pretty good I don't have much to say. I'm just going to give it a 3.25 I can't contribute, it doesn't do much for me but doesn't discourage me from drinking it. 3.25/5

Taste: hops really coming through in the flavour, still a sharp citrusy taste, like when you lick a girl's armpit straight after a shower. All considered the flavour is better than the smell would suggest 3.5/5

Feel: sem feel average to ️poor again. I think it's my own personal distaste for beer and beverages afain. Blahblahblah I have a girlfriend and suck dicks, Danny is sexy. I wish I had his experience and taste in beer.

Overall: I hate it when Danny isn't around. He makes day to day activity worthwhile with his energy and smile. His laugh is like the music I want to make. His words are like poetry and his prose like art. I miss him when we're together and long for him when we're apart. I love you Danny ogle. 3.75/5

Spicy tomato crisps - pipers # great

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for opening this with me, Josh!

Hazed golden in color with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves lines of lacing down the glass.

Some citrus, bread, and earth in the aroma. Simple enough, and nice.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with a fairly high level of bitterness for the style, bread, earth, and citrus combining for a nice enough pale.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

Above average.
