It doesn't have much of an odor. I touched the puddle and it tasted very bitter here are some images.

Yep, I couldn't tell what it was. It doesn't smell like oil or coolant. The oil has not been changed recently and the coolant is due for a change so they are both significantly darker than the leak.

Sounds like condensation form the AC. If so, perfectly normal

It seems to have slowed down quite a bit. It's been in the same spot for hours. I drove it at about 11am and noticed the leak at 3pm. I moved it back an hour after I noticed it and there is a 6in spot in the driveway. It is pretty humid. Last time I checked the weather it was like 60%. Do you think it could still be dripping water this long after I drove? It's been like 10 hours.

Water from the A/C wouldn't be dripping from the areas you show being stained with oil in the pictures. Check around your oil filter and front engine cover for leaks.

I don't see anything. I am pretty positive it is not oil. When I got a drop on my finger I rubbed it together and it dried fairly quickly.

I don't think that condensation is supposed to drip down the vehicle like that.
Wouldn't there be a hose somewhere that would direct it straight to the ground? Maybe it fell off some how.
Is the liquid cold at any point? I would think that condensation from the coil would be cold, or, at least cool to the touch...

There isn't any such hose in 2013. Just a hole in the firewall that drips. Not sure what those pics are showing, though.
