a - poured a one finger thick creamy, off-white head into a snifter that left great lacing throughout. the body was a bright golden-amber color.
s - very floral hops with some citrus hop aromas too.
t - very fruity with some citrus and spicy hops coming through too. nice balance here though with bready malt flavors.
m - thick, coating and chewy.
o - great DIPA and dangerously drinkable.

This beer has been sitting in my beer cooler for a while, and I haven't known what to think of it. I don't like to look at beers on BA before I drink them, so as not to cloud my unbiased judgement of a beer when I drink it and later review it. I generally like to drink and review at the same time! Anyway, side poured from the bottle into my 2-137th INF REGT tulip glass what. Standard vigor

Appearance - Pours a beautiful orange color with a sweet one and a half finger, fluffy white head with ecellent retention and absolutely ridiculous lacing! The lacing stays with this beer throughout the entire drink, every sip being marked on the sides of the glass. Plenty of sediment can be seen inside the bottle and in the glass after the pour, pours real cloudy as well. Magnificient presentation.

Smell - Everything you would expect out a DIPA, but much more balanced than most of the examples I have had of the style. Orange peel, coriander, piney citrusy hops are strong, tropical and floral scents, everything that is wonderful about a hoppy beer.

Taste - Follows the nose very closely. Tropical fruits, floral notes, oranges and grapefruits all play into the hoppiness of this hop-forward beer. There is a malty, boozy backbone to the brew as well, but the fruits are certainly at the forefront of the taste. Hops are well done in that they are not too bitter or dry, as I have seen several times with the style.

Mouthfeel - Finishes clean and crisp, with a touch of fruits and bitterness from the hops. Really good, real nice finish

Overall - This is absolutely one of the best DIPA's, or any variation of the pale ale style, that I have ever drank. Outstanding craftsmanship, hats of to the O'Dell brewery, unbelieveable. This is one of the most highly recommended beers the Condor has ever reviewed, this beer really surprised me. Took me totally off guard with its' quality, and I'm not really a DIPA guy. I will buy this again, for sure.
