Appearance: pale golden amber. One finger white head with medium thin lacing.

Smell: hint of citrus. Some malts. A hint of sweet.

Taste: a balanced brew with some citrus. Crisp taste with a Hint a of pine.

Feel: perfect carbonation and easy drinking. As always Odell's makes an outstanding beer.

Overall: it is good experience to drink this ale. I prefer more bitterness but that is why it's not an IPA.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful transparent gold with a thin ivory head.
Aroma: Less aroma then I was expecting given the name. A little sour with notes of citrus.
Taste: Very clean taste with just a hint of sour and a hint of malt grains. Good balance between hops and malt.
Feel: Effervescent with a mild bite.
Overall: Decent beer with a clean taste. A little sour, surprisingly, and not particularly hoppy, but certainly enjoyable.

St. Lupulin pours a bronze color with a small barley lacing head. A bitter aroma, with hints of apple. Taste is a a bit sweet, with a noticeable pine note, and finishes a little dry. Good body and feel. Overall, tasty and easy to drink.

This one pours a reddish gold that is slightly opaque and has as nice white head that is short and settles leaving little to no lacing down the glass.

the nose is sweet pepper, bread, pine, grass, and malt with some peppery hops.

The taste is a very dry malt bed with a sharp peppery hop flavor that is bitter but not too bitter. the dry and bitter come together quite well.

The mouthfeel is rich and just right for this style.

Overall this is an exceptional ale and very enjoyable.

Appearance: Semi-clear golden amber, with a huge frothy head of off-white suds. Thick, spider-web lace.

Aroma: Crisp tropical and citrus fruit hops. Quite pleasing.

Taste: Smooth and hoppy, with a well-executed balance between the hops and malts. Oh-so drinkable and another winner from the impeccable Odell.
