Toppers thoughts for the moment.

For folks that follow our simple blog I would like to share our goals at Toppers Cellar, we have been supporting the beer revolution since the first shot was fired at the insurrection at Chico California! We strive to provide the best environment and selection we possibly can. I can’t stress the importance of treating the beers properly, which in my opion is a responsiblty that any decaded brew enthousiant must adhere to. Its good to have competation thats good but we guardians of ale have to keep vigalant of the industry and help police it. There is concern and well there should be with some of the moves that are going on in our world that may not prove out very well, we will have to see. I am not trying to offend anyone just voicing my humble opinion of one!

Odell IPA!

RATING
88

Odell Brewing is known for the smooth, easy-drinking aspect of its beer that results from choice ingredients. A lot of the brewery’s beers are mild, laid-back styles that never push the envelope, but not its IPA, which grabs your senses and never lets go. The aroma starts with plenty of strong, citrusy American hops, leaving little room for the malt. This changes slightly in the flavor, however, with strong malt flavors of caramel and toffee, as well as toasted bread notes kicking in. These malts are the reason behind the 7% ABV, plus, they balance out the strong hops.

Odell Drum Roll APA!

pale ale

ABV: 5.3%

Available Year Round

Drumroll is an unfiltered American Pale Ale. A bold, juicy, citrus-inspired and tropically hop forward APA that looks and tastes like pineapple, orange, mango, and grapefruit. The complex fruit character is the result of the careful combination of our favorite current crop year hops with no fruit or juice addition necessary.

British Crystal and Chocolate Malt, Perle and Nugget hops

90 Shilling is our smooth and complex flagship beer. A medium-bodied amber ale with a distinct burnished copper color and a deeply pleasant aroma. The name 90 Shilling comes from the Scottish method of taxing beer. Only the highest quality beers were taxed 90 Shillings. We think you’ll find this original ale brilliantly refreshing, and worth every Shilling.

Founders Centennial IPA!

  • Appearance: Hazy copper color. Tons of clear, fast rising bubbles. Fluffy quarter inch head that dissipates slowly. Lots of sticky lacing.
  • Aroma: Light brown sugar sweetness. Grapefruit zest. Piney hops.
  • Taste: Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Very good carbonation (as if you couldn’t tell from the photo). Mildly sweet malt at the onset. Tart citrus flavors (think white grapefruit) at mid-palate. Hop bitterness builds and leads you to a  piney and slightly astringent finish. Pleasing bitter aftertaste with just a hint of sweetness lurking in the background.
  • ABV: 7.2%
