Odell Brewing Drumroll APA
What the brewers say
“A bold, juicy, citrus-inspired, and tropically hops-forward APA that looks and tastes like pineapple, orange, mango, and grapefruit. The complex fruit character is the result of the careful combination of our favorite current-crop-year hops.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Mild bitterness with light malt sweetness. Earthy-spicy lemon hops character, slightly grassy, very mild cracker malt. Some nice pine aroma, with stone fruit: peaches and cherry. With time, more citrus comes through.”
Flavor: “Citrus is strong enough here to hit first, with an earthy, somewhat grassy, backdrop. Nice soft, grainy, and subtly sweet malt character. The hops pair well and add spicy and light citrus notes. Finishes super dry and slightly bitter with light cherry notes.”
Overall: “Nice citrus character, almost delicate throughout, the aroma is really enticing with hints of lemon, pepper, and toasted malt. The flavor is similar, even if in the finish those flavors run together and miss the clarity of the best in this style.
