3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, best by April 16, 2013. About 2 months old. Served at around 45F.
Pours semi-hazy amber with a two finger off-white head that leaves rings of bubbly and drippy lacing
Aroma is big time pineapple, mango, tropical fruit, floral hops, some apricot, caramel, hint of pine and orange rind. Good to very good strength.
Flavor is fruity hops, tropical fruit, mango, melon, pineapple, resinous hops, some citrus, apricot, decent bit of caramel malt, mild to moderate sweetness, good bitterness, some alcohol on the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily and a bit sticky, good carbonation.
Excellent Double IPA and a real treat to get to try this. Big thanks to Mark for this one. Every hoppy beer I’ve had from Odell has been excellent...they sure know there way around some hops!

From the Trembling Madness in York and from the bottle. Wow, I do love a Citrusy, Hoppy, Fruity IPA but this is absolutely full of flavour. Possibly the hoppiest I have tried.
