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.

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!
