Pours black with a thin head. Aroma of dark malt and very herbal hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice mouth feel and tastes of malt and pretty bitter herbal hops. Very interesting, unique flavors, I like it.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL as a Christmas gift. Pours a translucent dark brown with ENORMOUS foamy tan head. Aroma is crushed by the head, but still quite faint after it finally collapses. Hoppy and a bit smoky, the charred body has a subtle chocolate note through chewy malt backbone. Smooth and disturbingly light for a 9.5% beer.

750 cork n cage. pours dark brown with creamy light tan head. aroma is citrus, pine, and a bit of fresh green. mouthful has big hops up front with the pine and citrus doing good things. the roasted malt is not quite as big a finisher as some other BIPAs... perhaps its the Impy.... in the BIPA ... very nice

Tap. Black color with tan white head. Subtle pleasing aroma. Smooth at first then perfect balance of sweet malty and alcohol. Excellent.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap pour at Town Hall Lanes. A questionable glass holding a wonderful, nearly perfect beer. A roasted malty ale leads but coupled by a compliment of hops. Just a great beer that showcases taste, mouthfeel, aftertaste, and perfection. Please go out and order this one!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tan, creamy head with a purple black body. Moderate bitterness and medium body. Alcohol is mildly apparent but unfortunately plays a bigger role than I’d like. Good malt presence.

750 ml bottle from Tournament. Black pour, luscious creamy tan head. Fresh, piny hops aroma. Nice prickly carbonation mouthfeel, Flavor is a combo of roasted malt and more fresh, resinous, piny hops. Awesome beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle: Pours dark, mostly black with hints of dark brown around the edges. Nice tan head, dissipates but still has penty of CO2 release. Aroma is hoppy, mostly cirtus and floral with a slight toasted bread and doughy quality. Taste is nice and hop forward, complex and well balanced with the roasted malts. Smooth, slightly bubbly, almost oily from all the hops. Great offering, probably my favorite Odell to date.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
In 12oz bottle. Wonderful aroma of pine and dark chocolate, but from there it?s all downhill. Taste is syrupy with dark chocolate and mud. Mouthfeel is sticky, Nyquil-esque. Must be better on draft?!
