COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for Myrcene, a component of essential oils in the hop flower, Myrcenary Double IPA is our tribute to those who revere the illustrious hop, and their unyielding exploit to craft hop forward beers. Brewed with a blend of hops containing the highest levels of Myrcene, this double IPA prevails with a tropical fruit-like flavor, a pungent floral aroma, and a clean getaway.

Bottle, shared by emacgee. Hazy straw colored orange with sudsy white lace. Nose is familiar, but I canít quite put my finger on exactly what I smell. First thought was urine, and now itís kind of an orangey urine, pineapple, lots of floral resins. Definitely strange, and I donít much care for it but yet canít keep my nose out of it because of its intrigue. Flavor is similar, some sweeter malts, some orange, lots of pineapple. A very resinous pineapple double ipa. Interesting, but very difficult to drink much of.

Thanks crajun. Pours a bright lemon rind yellow with a slight haze and one finger of white frothy head. Very resinous nose, lots of pine and citrus oil. Slightly herbal. Flavor is the same, coating resinous hop character. Very oily and piney/herbal with a lasting bitterness.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a thin finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down slowly revealing some nice lacing. S - Aroma is full of lots of citrus hop aroma, with some grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and other tropical aromas. There is also just enough sweet caramel malt and candied sugar aroma to balance things out. T - Starts off with some pretty big citrus hop flavor with some nice bitterness. Lot of tropical fruit and citrus flavor here. Through the middle, the hop flavor keeps it up with some sweet and bready malts coming in from the background. The finish is still hoppy and bitter with some nice sweet caramel and a touch of candied sugar that lingers. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a nice dry kick and some syrupy and resiny feelings. D - Very drinkable. The 9.3% abv is dangerously hidden here. I really like the hop profile from start to end as well as the hop malt balance, spot on.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Sampled from a bottle thanks to Erik. Gold copper color with some white top. Grassy mild citrus aroma. Solid hop bitter profile along with some sweet malt. A bit of a funky flavor persists on the finish with some astringency. Not too impressed.

Golden orange pour with a creamy head. Sweet ripe fruit, caramel malt and bitter piney hops come through in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and fruity followed by a bitter attack. Really good!

Nsanders (568) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Goldenrod with foamy white head. Floral resin smell, resin smell emanates as poured even. Moderate sweetness and not nearly as bitter as was expected based upon aroma. Pretty good.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Nice aroma, but a bitter, fast finish, with no depth. Golden color. Fine start but not a good finisher. Tap, but I have a bottle in my fridge and Iíll rate it again.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2011
355ml bottle from Mybrewerytap

Pours orange with a small bubbly and foamy head. Aroma has notes of floral hops, malts and glue. Taste is quite sweet and malty with notes of floral hops and glue. Sticky, slightly unpleasant finish. Decent, a bit unbalanced imperial IPA.

lusikka (6551) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2011
355 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a white foamy head with good retention. Lazy bubbles. Aroma of caramel malts, grassy hops and some herbs. Flavour of caramel malts, herbs, dry grassy hops, weak fruits and some weird honey-like sweetness. Medium bodied with oily mouthfeel and a finish of hops and honey. Solvent-like alcohol coming through as well. Not very good.
