Odell Brewing Hammer Chain

What the brewers say

Brewed with freshly ground whole-flower hops that bring notes of drippy tropical fruit, radiant peach, and sweet stone fruit.

What our panel thought

Inviting pine, orange, tangerine, and grapefruit hops aromas with subtle hints of green onion, strawberry, and passion fruit. The flavor is a balance of subtle caramel-malt sweetness and bitter hops-derived flavors of peach, tangerine, light resin, and subtle herbal notes. The finish is dry and bitter, but not harsh or astringent, with a mouth-coating nature.

What our editors thought

Orange, lime, and kiwi suggest sweetness on the aroma, and the flavor follows through with equal parts sweet fruit and palate-cleansing bitterness, for a remarkably balanced and enveloping beer that splits the dif-ference between dominant styles.
