2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 Golden yellow with orange tints and mild clarity. Foamy white head settles quickly. Hop character is pungent and sticky with mild florals and very light citrus. Sweet, smells very malty and thick. Pungent, dank, and piney in the flavor, too. Sticky, heavy and resinous to an unnecessary degree. Quite bitter though the malts have a large sticky sweetness in the finish. Light bread and faint citrus peel. Beer coats the mouth with sticky resins; thick and abrasive. Strange combination of extreme bitterness & nearly cloying sweetness. Too large to enjoy in quantity. Not a huge fan.

12oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of frothy head. Great full piney hop flavor. A little noticeable alcohol.

Julie says it is not her type of beer. It is very hoppy and taste like licking an old air freshener Julie gives it a 0.1

Pours the color of a DIPA should. Wow, this is so balanced between hops and malt, that the 9.3% ABV is as hidden as Jimmy Hoffa. Overall, a great DIPA, perhaps the best on the market.

Wow, this is what I was looking for. Everything you want in a double IPA. Wonderful hop nose. Terrific balance of hop bitter and malt. This recipe blows away the Odell double IPA I recently rated. This is a great brew!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of pine. Lots and lots. Pine. Light orange amber with a thick lasting foamy off-white head that leaves a thick coating on the glass. Much more balanced than the aroma was indicated. Smooth sweet maltiness compliments the crisp pine bitterness. I wouldn't have guessed more than 7% until a few minutes after when a warmth comes up from the back of the throat. Very nice.

Another excellent O’Dell brew! Very sweet with slightly sour notes that really complement the hops well. Balanced and sessionable yet so quenching and full of flavor and body.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Copper colored pour, good clarity, topped with a monster white head. Heavy lacing throughout. Hoppy aroma, pine and citrus, but mostly pine. Very aromatic. A piney taste, resin, and Pinesol… or at least what I think Pinesol would taste like. A little harsh in the tail, seemingly the Pinesol or ABV coming through more than it should. Snappy, but in negative way. If the flavor would have been on par with the nose we’d have a winner… as it sits I’ll pass on this one.
