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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber beer with a foamy head and an aroma of hop and fruit, mango in particular. The mango comes through in the flavour too, with sharp, tart hops to lend a bit of balance. In the finish itís fairly mellow but you could tell even if you didnít know that itís a very strong beer. Dangerously drinkable, though perhaps after more than one the sweetness may become a touch sickly.

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

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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 OíDell 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.
