Beer of the day #11


For the sake of keeping the 'little grey cells' working I have chosen a great beer of the day today, in fact I may even drink it on my birthday tomorrow too!
Odells IPA is simply a fantastic beer, here's why...
It pours bright orange with a lovely natural haze to it and the head is a lovely off-white colour. The ABV is 7% which means it's going to pack the punch I want to get me woken up and the packaging is superb. Simple, classic pastels, nice.
Yeah but what does it taste like? I hear you say, well on the nose I've got citrus, I've got C-Hops coming out of my ears, marvellous, yeah but what does it TASTE like??
There's Chinook(if I remember my C-Hops correctly) there's orange, there's more c-hops and it's beautifully bitter, not overpoweringly so but more gently than the nose gives away, it's smooth and drinkable, I expect no less as I have have had this before and enjoyed it immensely then. This little gem will do very nicely thank you, not bad for the last beer of my 36th year! Cheers!

I'm distracted from the beer by the fact that you are apparently older than me....do you turn 37 tomorrow???

no, 36, tomorrow I start my 37th year. You don't look that old though Jo!

Bah! I am older than you then. I was 36 in Feb. Getting older does not rock.

Yeah it does, it rocks almost as much as The Lola Jones!
