Odell Cloud Catcher Milkshake IPA is coming in August

Odell Cloud Catcher Milkshake IPA

Odell Cloud Catcher Milkshake IPA is set to debut later this summer.

The currently unofficial style of beer known as the “milkshake India pale ale” is basically a hazy IPA plus lactose, a milk sugar. Most milkshakes have vanilla beans and fruit also added.

Fort Collins, Colorado based Odell Brewing is slated to release Cloud Catcher Milkshake IPA this August. The hop forward, smooth IPA is purported to feature flavors of “creamsicle and peach”, although the label artwork doesn’t mention the addition of any fruit.

Our fabled Odell Cloud Catcher roams the sunset, sweeping up every stray Cumulonimbus. She has one mission: to capture the key ingredient to our hazy, smooth Milkshake IPA. Hop-forward with notes of creamsicle and peach, it delivers a citrus-like burst alongside its velvety texture. Her risk is your delicious reward.

Odell Cloud Catcher will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft in August, according to the brewery’s website.

Style: Milkshake IPA (Hazy IPA) (w/ Lactose)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: August 2018

5.3% ABV

Truly a beautiful beer. Odell Brazzle Sour Raspberry Ale is back for spring

Odell Brazzle Bottle

Odell Brazzle Sour Golden Raspberry Ale has reappeared at the brewery again today.

The base beer is a golden ale, soured in oak barrels used for Odell’s Woodcut offerings, with multiple wild yeasts for a full two years. 300 pounds of raspberries are looped into the process before and after the bacteria and yeasts do their thing.

This beer just bursts with fresh raspberry aromas that really burst with each sip as well. There’s a subtle tartness in the finish that is both playful and attention-grabbing. All in all, this truly is a biological beauty of a beer. Drink fresh, in the sun, and if you have them – friends.

“We used golden raspberries to brew with, which gives this sour a touch of sweetness. There is also a bright, tart fruit and citrus flavor that comes through. The sour acidity plays well with the raspberry flavor. This is a very unique sour, and WELL worth the wait!” – ” Barrel Aging/Pilot System Manager, Brent Cordle. “

Odell Brazzle is available in 750ml bottles and draft.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Barrel Aged. Raspberries.)
Availability: 750 ml bottles, Corked & Caged
Latest Return: Late March 2018

5.4% ABV

A special hop grinding process creates Odell Rupture

Odell Rupture

As the summer of 2017 winds down, a new beer is emerging in Fort Collins, Colorado – Odell Rupture.

A special flourish in the brewing process is what makes Odell Rupture so unique. Sure, you’ve heard of whole flower hops added to the boil, or used in dry-hopping. Odell does something a little different in this brewing process by grinding the whole flower hops minutes before meeting beer.

The brewery actually uses a mix of pellets and whole flower hops in their brewing processes. The biggest hop aromas came “rupturing” the lupulin in the whole flower hops in a grinding process. The brewery loved the result so much, they installed a hammer mill to aid in the process.

“By grinding the hops, we unlock an unparalleled amount of hop aroma. We built the recipe around highlighting that aroma, letting the hops take center stage without overwhelming bitterness.” – Brendan McGivney, COO

Odell Rupture is now available year-round in 12-ounce cans and draft.

Style: IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans. Draft. Year-round
Debut: Late August 2017
