Pours a gorgeous sunburst yellow orange with a gentle hazing and a fluffy finger of slight off-white foam.

Fresh cut grass, biscuits, and subtle lemon.

Grassy and resinous hop flavor up front followed by a crackery sweet malt character.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, balanced, slightly dry finish.

Overall, a nicely balanced ale and quite drinkable!

This beer pours a pale amber yellow with an average head. The aroma is soft with notes of lemon, cracker malts, pepper, melon, fresh earth, and light tobacco. The flavor offers up mild lemon oil , light cracker malts, underripe lemon, woodsy hops, and mild bitterness. The mouthfeel is very light and foamy. Overall it is a decent beer with nice complexity, but a bit lighter and less intense than I would like.

Poured from a bottle with an expiration of 8/10/17. The beer pours a deep amber with a short, thick, edit head that leaves nice lacing.

The smell is fresh, grassy hops tending toward tropical, but otherwise nothing strong or distinctive.

The taste had a strong, bready malt base that holds up some decent piney and tropical hops. It's well balanced.

The mouthfeel is medium to high carbonation and slightly thick/oily.

Overall it's a pretty good beer. It's a little heavy on the malt for me, but easy to drink.

Copper colored with a quarter inch of tightly packed dishwater white. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of piney hops and light malt. I'm tasting piney hops and light, biscuity malt. Very well balanced. The mouth offers a light stickiness and is a lightly resinous.

L- Bright, clear, light bronze. Long lasting head and sticky lacing. Lighter color than most pales, which to me is often a good sign of that I will enjoy the malt to hop balance.
S- Fairly muted but what I get is very pleasant. Pine, citrus, sweet bready malt.
T- Super well balanced in sweetness to bitterness, although flavor is all hops. Very little malt presence but not bitter. Pine, and citrus is really all I get. Not all that complex as far as hop flavors but so well executed.
F- Middle of the road for a pale, not heavy but not thin either. A very quaffable pale while remaining serious flavor and bite.
O- I love early everything Odell does. Because they are a large established brewery (relative to "craft") they don't get much hype but they are one of my all time favorite breweries and they are so stinking consistent. Different hop profile to their IPA, (which is very fruit forward to me) which some may or may not like as much but same flawless execution.

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.
