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 Iíve had from Odell has been excellent...they sure know there way around some hops!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Henryís. Pours clear Amber with a small white head. The aroma has a big citrus flavor but is not complex. The taste has a medium bitterness, a fairly lemony grapefruit balance. This is pretty decent but not as strong as the rating suggests.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Plano, Tx. - Whiskey Cake Restaurant - on tap. Pours a murky light amber - not unlike a jar of honey - silky off-white head. Fresh fragrant floral aroma, hints of pine cones. Bold, fruit forward flavor with plenty of hoppy fresh grapefruit bitter notes, some nectarines, a bit of maltiness with some maple syrup like sweetness. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid overall.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent DIPA from Odell. Taste is a great combo of sweet and bitter. I could have actually used more hops. For the ABV, it is quite drinkable and refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Yardhouse in Denver. Colour...golden straw with a thick white head. Nose...citrusy hops and pineapple sugar. Palate...sweet, somewhat cloying and then lightly bitter. I suspect the IBUís are higher than is suggested on the palate, so there must be a pretty decent malt bill. Lots of tropical fruit here and some dusty hops at the back of the palate.

This beer was awesome. Potent on the hops and alcohol. Itís sweet and thatís the only downside but itís also what allows this beer to be so strong.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Myrcenary pours a light honey color with a solid 2 finger white foam head. Head retention was good and lacing was fair. Aromas of grapefruit, melons,tropical fruits and sweet malts. Flavor best can described as juicy with tropical fruit and sweet malt backbone balanced by grapefruit bitterness that turns a bit floral/herbal. For such a high ABV, the alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel that finishes slightly dry. Very drinkable (for such a high ABV) and extremely tasty. Overall, a very well crafted Double IPA.
