Odell IPA

2013-03-10 13.22.52Like Chang beer, this beer has an elephant on the label. Unlike Change, this beer has no elephant on the cap. The caps from Odell brewery are all the same design, but at least this brewery changes the colors of their caps as they change their beers. Because of this, I’ll be trying more from this brewery in the future. I hope they’ll be better than their IPA.

The first thing I noticed about this beer was a large amount of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. I tried to pour the beer, carefully, but it was of little use. A good amount of the sediment made it into the poured beer.

Upon pouring the beer, I noticed a strong, grapefruit-like scent. After my experience with the Marble IPA, I was a little hesitant to take that first sip. When I did, the flavor of grapefruit was unsurprisingly present. However, this beer was slightly more enjoyable than the Marble as the grapefruit flavor was not as sour.

Would I buy this beer again? No. I’m really not a fan of the grapefruit flavor. This is something I’m going to pay closer attention to as I drink more IPAs. Should you try this beer? Well, if you like a drink that you can have at either dinner or breakfast, go for it.

I’ll give this beer 2/5 caps.
