wedgie9 (2588) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Tasted on 8/26/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very bright orange with a thick, off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is pretty unique, with plenty of wheat bread malt, clover honey, a sweet corn note, and just a green combination of hops and hatch green chile. The flavor is more or less the same, quite honeyed, and very complex with all of the same notes from the nose and an added perfume. The body is full with a syrup texture, average carbonation, and a long perfumed, hoppy, and hint of green chile finish. This beer is quite unique, and very nice.

Pours a golden in color with white head. Pale malty aroma. Sweet but balanced dry hoppiness. Quite carbonated. Notes: Denver Rare Beer Tasting ’13

ElGaucho (2384) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2012
750 ml bottle. Belgian yeast evident in the aroma with hints of brett and higher alcohol. Really nice nose. Hazy gold color with some visible carbonation. Frothy, small bubble, off white head that lasts initially but fully erodes by bottom of glass. Rich, higher alcohol flavor and very carbonated mouth feel. Good amount of sweetness. Full bodied flavorful beer that’s a winner.

portableparty (2273) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with a white soapy head that fades to spotty film. Aroma is grain fruit like oranges and rind and wine corks (wood) with faint caramel. Taste has a good bitterness and dry fruit of oranges and wood and I get faint wine characteristics. Palate is medium and drying with a chalky finish. This is a complex brew. Another bottle down the road may bring me back to this rating. Non the less this is very enjoying and the alcohol is very well hidden.

poisoneddwarf (2226) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUN 3, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle. I like the concept here. Aroma is nice and hoppy--grapefruit is strong; I also get the green chiles--or something vegetal anyway. Pours hazy gold with a long-sustaining thick off-white soapy head. Taste is sweet and meaty; faintly spicy at the end. Tastes more like an imperial IPA than anything, although there are so many different ingredients thrown in to the mix. Not sure what so many of these adjuncts contribute to the overrall beer. All I taste are hops and malted barley with a suggestion of green chiles (??). The oak is nonexistent, but I guess at only 10% of the mix it should be (why only 10%?). An interesting concept, again, but some of these ingredients should be much more prominent (at least noticeable!). That doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s pretty tasty stuff, though. Re-think: beer starts to wear out its welcome after sitting in the glass awhile, lowering my overall a point.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine Scottsdale. Pours a hazy straw color with nice off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma has resinous hops, florals citrus and a bit of wood. Taste is sweet malts with some honey sweetness and finishing bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick texture. The oak is noticeable and distinctly Odells in flavor. That is the same oakiness is found in several Odell?s beers. A nice idea from the brewer and one that I enjoyed more than their other offerings.

McNeillR (2147) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Hazy honey golden body, starburst dusting of a straw head. Sweet and earthy nose, slight wheat itch. Super sweet, almost barely wine initial taste with a syrupy mouthfeel weirdly lifts as it rolls to the midrange, fluffy and sprite witha a juicy edge. Finish is where it turns love/hate. Fresh heat arrives as you’re enjoying the refreshment. Chilli burn erupts on the fringes gluped in a sweet honey glaze and then every bud on your tounge and fissure on the roof of your mouth is flamed lightly with a linger that lasts two beers down the line. A fantastic but boggling beer.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle: pour is hazy orange gold with a massive white head. Aroma is sweet, honey and biscuity malt, apricot/ peach fruitiness, floral. Good body, floral and honey on the front, crackery/biscuity malt, hints of nutty rice in there too. Strange minerally taste in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheHOFF43 (2015) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at a family tasting. Pours golden with some head. Flavor is very unique and sweet. It almost has a honey flavor to it. You can taste a lot of the different ingredients and it is quite complex. Surprisingly good.
