12 oz. Can
Canned On: 12/31/19

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy pale yellow/orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, which leaves some very nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pineapple, guava, mango), some very nice diesel. The taste is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, pineapple, guava, grapefruit, mango), very nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a very tasty brew. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake!. Nice to see this one, and something new from Odd13 around here.

12/24/19 can:

7.0% ABV. Hops: amarillo, azacca, centennial, idaho-7. Malt: 2-row, wheat. "India Pale Ale brewed with Vanilla."

BODY: Turbid yellow-orange. Somewhat vibrant, but it's not the most lively.

AROMA: Mellow wheat and 2-row sweetness. Subdued vanilla. Floral and fruity hop aromatics with tropical leanings.

TASTE: Mellow wheat and 2-row erase any hop bitterness, but hop pungency is reduced as a result. I mainly get muted tropical fruit and generic floral notes...the Amarillo and Centennial are not well showcased. There's no pine from the Centennial and its floral flavours don't hit as hard as they do in, say, Bells' Two Hearted Ale.

The vanilla is surprisingly subtle, and feels genuine though vanilla bean itself isn't evoked per se. Not the imitation vanilla extract flavour you'd find in a subpar vanilla porter, but not the Madagascar fresh vanilla flavour you'd find a top tier vanilla bean stout.

Depth of flavour needs improvement for this to be a real contender, but it's balanced and enjoyable. ABV is well hidden and it drinks easy.

TEXTURE: Soft, smooth, wet, medium-bodied, well-carbonated. Refreshing. Has a coating but also dragging feel on the palate.

OVERALL: A forgettable IPA with a mild vanilla flavour that doesn't help set it apart as much as one might hope. Not Odd 13's strongest work...I'll enjoy the sixer but it's not a beer I'd look out for in the future.
