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!

One of my favorite double IPA’s. Not too strong for a 9.3 ABV. Bit of a fruity flavor and very smooth. You will like it!

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a rich copper with a medium white head leaving some good lacing. The aromas are grapefruit, resin. The mouthfeel is dry bitter and has a medium body and good carbonation. Tis quite a hefty beer, you get the alcohol kick in this thing. Cheers!

World class DIPA! Pine and sherbet aroma, the initial sweet malt is soon washed away in a flood of bitter hops. My kind of beer. Fantastic.
