Codename: SuperfanCodename: Superfan
Notes: He controls mass and density, primarily of liquids. He uses that power to to ensure perfect fermentations of beers. That's not exactly what his creators had in mind when they remade him, but they can no longer control him. Because of the remaking process, he no longer knows his name. He just knows the codename they gave him: Superfan.

Codename: Superfan is a deliciously modern take on the American IPA style, brewed with a variety of juicy American hops from the Pacific Northwest.

Pale hazy amber with plenty of foam in the big tulip. Pleasant orangey and tangerine aroma. Fruit and light flavors of peach and green melon. Hops are listed as Citra, Simcoe, and Ekuanot, with red wheat and white wheat in the grains. Actually extremely drinkable for most of the can. Moderate acidity that doesn't show up until the last pour. From the 16 oz can purchased at the big box in Tucson. Dated 07/25/22.

.33 l. of murky orange stew.
Oh simcoe hops, juicy fruity notes.
Morning juice, some grapefruit too.
Hop bite too with pine notes.
Medium feel good, chewy long finish.
Don't forget the malt balance here.
Drive this to the edge of w. Class.

First time trying this.

The appearance is typical NEIPA. Just barely translucent, murky orange juice with a soapy white head. Decent retention and lacing.

The aroma is pulpy diluted orange juice, hints of pineapple and mango, and some grassiness.

The aroma follows the nose. Pulpy orange, mango, and pineapple juices just slightly diluted, with a hint of grassiness. Slightly chewy oat malt profile. Silky feel but finishes thin but quite clean.

A really solid NEIPA. It doesn't really pop the way I had hoped but the drinkability is absurd whilst being pretty clean. Good.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy yellow in color and has some brownish hues. It poured with a half finger high dense white head that left lots of lacy rings of bubbles around the edge and a thin patch of bubbles on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of orange and grapefruit citrus are present in the nose along with notes of piney hops.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and quite juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the juiciness of this IPA.

12oz can. Poured out a slightly cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass. It smelled of citrus, grapefruit, pineapple and toasted caramel. Sweet tropical fruit taste with caramel and toffee sweetness. Piney bitter bite.

With a little citrus, a little tropical, a little herbal and a little bitterness, Odd13's IPA has a little something for everyone, making it a big fan of hopheads throughout.

Americanized in a swift bitter crispness yet juicy in its fruit display, Codename: Superfan first starts off with a glowing goldenrod appearance while crowning with a creamy off-white froth. As the citrusy scents abound, a waft of tropical fruit, herbal appeal and earthiness rolls off of the foam. With its first sip, a lightly caramelized taste of honey, granola and toasted nuttiness make first impressions.

Juicy with a hoppy middle palate, the sweetness of malt then turns to a straight-up tangerine flavor that borrows flavors of mango, passionfruit and red grapefruit for added charm. As the ale turns moderately bitter, the back of the throat fills with spruce, sun tea, hemp and a botanical blend of gin.

Spicy in finish, the medium bodied beer also concludes with a growing but smooth bitterness and a medium long aftertaste of gin botanical, pine and geranium.

12oz can, tulip, can’t quite make out freshness date, but it looks like canned in July 2020.

Hazy yellow and opaque with a medium clean white head.

Strong aroma of peach, nectarine, orange, and resin.

Things are on the juicy side, much like eating a perfectly ripe navel orange, juicy running through your fingers and down your chin.

Light body, soft carbonation, silky.

This is one of the better hazy IPAs; no obvious alcohol, lots of fruity flavor, low bitterness, and of course, juicy.

LOOK . . . . super hazy and yellow/orange in color - 2 finger head and great retention - foam is nearly meringue-like - nice soapy foam clings onto the edge of the glass
SMELL . . . . strong hop aroma - citrus, mango, pine, some cat-like notes, and pineapple - slight yeast and bread
TASTE . . . . nice punch of bitterness - it backs off a bit and lets the tropical fruit flavors rush in - definitely mango/peach/pineapple with some hints of pine and grapefruit and orange juice - sweetens up considerably but then trails off into a dry woodsy flavor with some of that cattiness following
FEEL . . . . medium bodied - nice carbonation throughout - oily/slick
OVERALL . . . . this one has been on my beer list for a few years and finally picked up a 6 pack - what an amazing IPA (Hazy IPA?) great flavors with a nice bitter balance and a multitude of hop genres between pine, citrus, tropical, catty - it has them all - I am not usually a fan of catty-hop flavors in brews, but there are enough other flavors to balance it nicely - this one is higher on my list of favorite IPAs for sure

Nice hazy pale yellow, bright white head, citrus fruits and bitterness, some grainy malt character. Good carbonation with a lighter body that’s soft enough. Solid

I found this review I wrote back in 2017: Gentle pour yields great head retention-2/3 finger of off white head. Cloudy lemon-tallow with orange highlights. Looks like a Belgian White. Great NEIPA look. Smell is mango, Orange juice, clementine, a bit of guava, slight pine. Taste is orange guava, tangerine, very slight pine. Only knock is it’s a tad vegetal (which I tired of by the end), but I’ve noticed this is par for many NEIPAs. Mouthfeel has little bitterness - spot on for the style. Dry silky and smooth. A tad too green and starchy though. Overall: Superfan=Super nice. A great NEIPA from...CO!

This is a bitter ale with touches of citrus and splashes of fresh water. A very nice happy hour brew to end the day. The aftertaste feels like a toasted hop.

Cloudy yellow, 1 inch white head, nice cobwebs of lacing.

Fresh grapefruit, lime zest, cantaloupe and honeydew melon.

Taste follows the nose. Nice blend of flavors. Juicy but finishes with some bitter citrus peel. Delicious.

Low-medium carbonation with a soft, easy feel.

This is my second Odd 13 brew and I am again impressed. Crushable and satisfying. Recommended.

Appearance: Arrives cloudy and honey colored with a one finger head; a nice coating of lace is left behind

Smell: Papaya and melon with grapefruit and lemon tones; quite pithy

Taste: Assertively pithy, at the outset, with the lemon and grapefruit rind dominant; underneath, the papaya and melon tones add another layer but the finish is all West Coast

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Looks like an NE IPA and delivers a head fake in the aroma but there is a lot of West Coast action here
