Odell Barrel Thief, All Markets in June

Odell Barrel Thief

Odell Barrel Thief is now officially in bottles for the first time. The oak aged imperial IPA got its start on Odell’s pilot system, and has been available on draft in the past.

Odell Barrel Thief uses whole flower American hops, especially Equinox hops and experimental HBC 472 hops. “Huge oak flavors pair well with all the tropical fruits that can be attributed to the massive amount of hops used,” said pilot brew and barrel aging manager Brent Cordle.

The hop has met its match! Barrel Thief is an Imperial IPA that was stolen from the brewhouse and stashed away in medium toast, new American oak barrels. The brew features a notorious tropical fruit hop character that tangles with things of vanilla, dried fruit, and toasted almond from its time served in the barrel.

Odell Barrel Thief is now be available in 750ml bottles, in the tap room starting May 29th.

Style: Imperial IPA (Oak Aged)
Availability: 750ml Bottles. Full Odell Distribution in June, 2015.
Release: 5/29/15
