Had at The Café, Ames, IA. Pours a honey-orange hue, clear, with moderate 2-finger cream colored head. Aroma is assertive, pleasing, citrus and floral hops, noticeable even before pouring from the bottle. Flavor follows suit, with very fragrant citrus and floral notes, even ginger-like spice, bitterness is pleasingly balanced with mildly sweet malt. Feel is refreshing with moderate carbonation, clean finish, alcohol seems less assertive than the IBV would predict. Overall, a delicious and refreshing Pale Ale, which paired very well with the grilled salmon I was having, and one I would love to have any time it is available!

Pours a frothy, resiny head. Sweet aroma of citric hops. Dark, straw color. Starts with a rich, pine and citrus hop flavor that peaks at a medium-high bitterness. It wells into a lovely, bright citrus hoppiness. The finish is citrus rind and a slight malt sweetness.

This is absolutely fantastic. Odell perfectly nails the "hoppy, yet not unpleasantly bitter" balance. All the joys of the hops, and none of the unpleasant parts. This is the only brewery from out West that I truly miss.

Pours an opaque but clear copper color. Thin white head dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of spotty foam and some spotty lacing.

Smell is very bright, citrusy and herbal. Notes of lemon sage, lemon, pine and some mild cracker malt notes.

Taste is very light, and bright. toes of lemon, lemon sage, and some pine come through. Solid malt backbone that is light and gentle. Flavor gives way to a bitter hoppyness that has some strong pine and grass notes. Very drinkable.

Feel is light and crisp. medium carbonation. Perfect all around for a america pale ale.

Overall a really nice APA from Odell. Interesting and more unique flavor profile for an APA especially with the lemon sage like aroma/flavor. I'd drink this again if I ever come across it again.

Looks damn good. Light amber. Thin lace.

Smell as the first thing to hit me. Literally as soon as the cap cracked, before it was even off, I could smell this ale. Floral, and piney.

Tastes great. Definite hop presence and bitterness, but not overwhelming. Quintessential APA. Goes down WAY too smooth for such a high ABV. Crisp, buttery crack taste that unfolds into floral and piney sensations on the palate.

Feels so smooth, like fizzy silk on my tongue.

Damn fine job, Odell. Cheers!
