750ml. bottle purchased at GCM, Gilbert, AZ. Pour is opaque amber/orange, with huge egg shell white head. Good head retention, and some lacing. Aroma is fabulous, with massive hops which are floral, piney and citrusy, with sweet honey in the background. Taste is malt, toffee, honey mellowed hops and some bitterness. Wonderful balance. Finish is sweet, with some closing bitterness. This is a beautiful collaboration ale. Well done.

750 ml bottle. Pours bright amber with a tight white foamy head that dissipates to a spotty film and lacing. Aroma is strong resinous piny hops and malt. Taste is more bitter resinous hops that show pine and spruce and a spicy note with a sweet malty finish. Palate is full slick and sticky with a dry finish. Tasty beer!

Pour on tap at Odell Small Batch Festival 2012, hazy orange with white head pour. Aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, nice pine, citrus notes with a lot of resin, some biting spice and earthy tones come through as well. Taste is fairly nice mix of earthy spice, some bitter pine and resin, grass with some sweet grapefruit, finishing with some caramel and toffee, fairly dry.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This stuff is amazing! Beautiful raw honey pour with ample carbonation and a fluffy eggshell head with sticky lacing. Can sit a quarter on it. Eventually diminishes to a whisp and fizzy film. Aroma of Spruce, Ponderosa, and Douglas Fir...tons of evergreen. Loads of caramel, toffee, tropical fruit, and spice. Mango, papaya, and guava...fruit cocktail syrup and alcohol in flavor but the ABV isnít distracting. Again, lots of peppery spice. Medium to thick mouthfeel. A little thick. Tasty! Another winner from Odellís!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle. Pours an apricot color with a fluffy eggshell head that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma has some dank hops, citrus, green mango. Taste is sweet with super juicy hops. Medium bodied and a bitter, but balanced finish. A touch of dryness as well. This beer hides the high abv very well as you take a sip, but it begins to warmth the chest so you know its there. Really well done. And, just when I had all but given up hope for Odellís. The biggest drawback: As usual, the price.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Snifter at 45į. Color is a light gold with easy carbonation and a fluffy white head. Aroma is a fresh sweet fruity hop scent. It has a bolder medium body with a rich mouth feel. Flavor is rich, malty and has a nice fruity sweetness then a touch of pine shows with a bold bitterness. In the after taste all the flavors hang on with the pine standing out, a little more bitterness and a some alcohol showing. Overall it very well done, its big and bold without being overdone.
