Odell Brewing announces Winter-Spring Montage Variety 12 pack featuring Wolf
Picker Experimental Pale Ale
celebrated the third release of its Montage Variety Pack series. Each
Montage Variety Pack includes two year round offerings, the current seasonal
release, as well as a special Roots Release beer inspired by the brewery’s
five barrel pilot system. The Winter-Spring Montage features 90 Shilling,
IPA, Runoff Red IPA, and Wolf Picker.
Named in honor of the hop growing community and the harvesting equipment
many use, Wolf Picker is an experimental American Style Pale Ale brewed with
two experimental hop varieties. The malt profile produces a light golden
straw hue and a clean crisp finish that allows the hopback and dry hopping
additions to shine.
“We absolutely love to partner with hop growers experimenting with their new and
exciting varieties,” said Brendan McGivney, head of production at Odell Brewing
Company. “Wolf Picker features ADHA (American Dwarf Hop Association) #881 and
HBC (Hop Breeding Company) #366, which give this beer an intensely complex hop
character and aroma filled with notes of lemon, fresh basil and tropical fruit.
The Winter-Spring Montage also features seasonal offering, Runoff Red IPA.
Formerly known simply as “Red Ale,” Runoff boasts a hearty malt backbone and a
ruby hue. The brew is dry-hopped with a generous amount of American hops giving
the beer a fruity citrus aroma and a kick of grapefruit and pine hop character.
Runoff is also available in six packs.
