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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of wet hops. Medium bodied with steady carbonation. Pale malt background with lemony and herbal hops, that are flavorful without being overly bitter. Dry and hoppy finish

Ernest (6197) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent. The nose is like floor cleaner and other, less offensive things. I will never understand why hopheads like raw/green/resinous hop odor so much, itís just not pleasant. Flowery, spicy, fruity, herbal...sure, I can get behind those types of hop odors, but this is just repellent. And Iím sure brewers pay extra for super-fresh hops too. So bizarre to me. Anyways, other than smelling of medicine/Pine Sol, this doesnít offer too much to entice. The mouthfeel is nice. Ok flavor balance. But alas, forgettable.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle - Pours a hazy amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, and floral hops. Itís quite pungent. Flavor is a wide array of hops, esters, and lightly sweetened toasted malt. Finish is fairly bitter. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium to full body. A good beer.

Bought in a 12oz bottle. Odell expanded to MN less than a year ago, I like most of their beers iíve tried but this is the first worthy of hype....Pours a light copper color with a fine white head. Great hoppy aroma, piney bitter finish.

Had this last night at Lucky Pie in Louisville, CO. I donít remember specifics. Just that it will certainly keep you warm and had that perfect IPA sweetness/bitterness you look for. Great Beer!

Itís been a long day. Letís hope that this beer hits the spot. I had this when it was on tap at Old Chicago for the St. Patrickís mini tour. Odell has since then started distributing it in 4 packs. I jumped at the chance to taste it again when I found it on the shelf a few weeks ago. Pours a hazy golden color, with a small frothy head. The nose is an eruption of hop character. Orange citrus shines through, followed by pineapple, with resinous pine underneath. This is a hop headís wet dream. Citrusy pineapple hops start, and grassy malt sweetness finishes. Thereís a beautifully understated bitterness level thatís soft, velvety, and smooth. The malt profile has kind of a honey-almond quality. Itís just there to keep the hops in balance. I think it could stand to be a bit bigger, but Mycenary aims for quaffability, and in that respect it succeeds. Mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation level gets out of the way. For a beer that packs 9.3% ABV, this is dangerously drinkable, as the hop bitterness and solid malt profile hide the alcohol. Too often double IPAs come across as too harsh. Thatís not the case with this beer, as itís well rounded and quite enjoyable to drink (again, think quaffable), despite the monster levels of both bitterness and ABV. A very effective hop delivery vehicle.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Aroma:Tons and tons of citrus in the aroma, both grapefruit and orange. Appearance:Cloudy, golden in color, very little head that dissipates quickly. Taste:Amazing citrus flavor on this one. Sweet and well balanced. Nice bitterness too, but very pleasant flavor. On the backend, some maltyness makes itself known. Palate:Light to medium, good carbonation, high hop astringency. Overall:This a very tasty sweet IIPA full of sweetness.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a clear coppery gold with a scant off white head. The beer is a bit too cold straight out of the fridge, but the initial aromas are big on pine resin, passion fruit, mango, papaya, some caramel, and candied orange. The flavor is well balanced with resinous and fruity hops, a fair malt backbone with some caramel, and a smooth bitterness. The mouthfeel is slightly oily, stemming a little from the low carbonation, but itís not distracting. The finish is long and bitter.
