Odell IPA

Odell Brewing Co. of Fort Collins, Colorado makes one tasty IPA, and the 2007 Great American Beer Festival judges agreed when they awarded Odell IPA with a gold medal in the “American-style IPA” category.

Zymurgy magazine associate editor Amahl Turczyn Scheppach put together this Odell IPA homebrew recipe, which is featured in the July/August 2011 issue. Access this issue of Zymurgy and many more online or from your mobile device.
