Pulp Theory Hazy IPA by Odell Brewing Co. is being judged as a 21b Specialty IPA, specifically a Juicy/Hazy IPA, per the BJCP 2015 Style Guidelines.

The pour is hazy, obviously, bordering on turbid with a pale gold and touch of orange and a creamy white head that persists. The nose is super fruity. I'm getting guava and pineapple, along with some jasmine and grapefruit. Super clean and fresh, with a complementary ester profile as well. Some vanilla also is peeking out, probably due to the yeast. Great nose. On tasting, the bitterness is definitely on the lower end, but to style. Faint notes of some odd plastic, likely from fermentation, as well. Hop flavor dominates, with guava and pineapple leading, followed by some less acidic passion fruit notes. Super drinkable, especially given the ABV. Clean and fresh overall, just a few odd phenolic notes up front. The bitterness grows in the finish, which helps to round it out. Really great overall and hits all the tropical fruit boxes.
