3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 8/5/2014, consumed 9/29/2014. Transparent golden-orange pour with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is predominantly resinous, piney hops, but with a solid malt presence of caramel and hint of cereal. Flavor is a lovely mix of hoppiness - especially tropical fruits, a bit of citrus, a touch of pine, and a bittersweet finish. This is delicious, and goes down easy for the 10% ABV. However, the lingering tropical fruit/bitter finish somewhat overstays its welcome.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dingy brownish gold with a thin head and gunky aromas. Just a hint of oranges and a little toffee. Flavor is sweet and sticky with some hops resin thrown in there. Not the greatest from Odd Side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to snifter. Looks solid; malty though. A transparent copper with off-white head. Smells of piney and bitter hops with a big bittersweet malt backbone; it works though. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel. A touch hot, and stickier than I prefer, but enjoyable nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Translucent light coppery body, thin clumping light beige head. Odd nose, fermented pineapple/pineapple juice, citrus, and grassy hops; sweet. Slick, oily, sweet body, mostly pineapple, with a syrupy, bitter finish. After a few sips distracting diacetyl notes pick up in intensity; even butterscotchy. Not great.

Almost pure hop oil. Champane Cellars, thanks for keeping the best but after 5 months not optimal. Yet still enjoyable.
