750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a cloudy amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of oak, carmel, vanilla, almonds, light tropical fruit and light citrus.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle, bottle no. 01749, date August 2012. Pours a hazy tea-like brown with a huge creamy off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is green leafy tropical fruits and resiny fruity hops with a bit of dank stinkiness.
The flavor is sweet tropical fruits and light bready malts with some dry alcohol and piney, minty hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth, slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, this is my new favorite Woodcut. I personally don’t get a lot of wood out of it (maybe a little vanilla), but a lot of tropical fruits and green, leafy, minty, piney hops.

On draft at ODell. Wow. When they say wood, they are not kidding. Pours a bright, hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big, huge, tremendous, and palate-deafening wood. White oak, vanilla, tropical fruit, and hints of papaya in the nose. Flavor is also a burst of white oak- vanilla, wood, tropical fruit, papaya, and a bit of yeast. Medium in body and interesting overall, but VERY woody.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The pour is a murky, rusty, copper color with a creamy, off-white, moderately full head which settles to a rocky froth and leaves scattered, froth all over. The nose is awesome; leafy, limey, mango, light resins, apricot, toasty oak, vanilla, and light cinnamon. The flavor is similar with tropical fruit notes, still leafy and resinous, cinnamon turning more spicy, very nice sweet oak in the middle with toasty caramel, and a more than moderate bitterness. The palate has moderate carbonation, nearly full, and a velvety, creamy, chewy mouthfeel. The finish dries out just a bit with dry oak, still leafy, some lime, and a spicy cinnamon note. I thought this one was a perfect blend of hop complexity and oak rounding. This Mosaic hop is new for me but I am very impresses how the tropical fruit and leafy notes came out among the incredible oak presence. I always look forward to the woodcut series from Odell and this one was no different. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at the Odell brewpub with a murky opaque copper body with gold edges and supporting a light tan colored head which leaves behind some wispy lacing. The aroma offers up firm resiny notes as well as spicy oak, minerally and sticky sweet spicy oak. The taste comes across resiny and firm with spicy oak, a little mineral like and then full-up sticky resin. The taste is a mix of rich resiny and spicy oak with tons of resiny spicy hops and sticky sweet malts. Wow, this is a real sipper

Clear burnt tangerine pour with a small ivory head that left a milky coating inside the glass. Nose shows leafy, woody, citrusy note. Spice as well...tons of oak and evergreen. Such a unique and intriguing brew. Nice caramel and vanilla layer that moderates all of the other flavors. Ponderosa, lemon grass, honey, raw pine, sap, orange peel, and pepper. Like chewing on forest scraps...but delicious. Never tasted anything like it!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brownish pour, very small head. Sampled at Odell during GABF week. Aroma is sweet and sticky with loads of barrel notes. And the flavor? Well its sweet and fruity but more than anything this is like chewing on a fresh barrel. Yeah, CHEWING on a barrel. Woody as hell. Some vanilla and brown sugar, but more barrel than most any beer I have ever tasted.

Sampled at GABF 2012. Wow. Makes me want to try all of the Woodcut series beers. If I had the money. Big oaky taste. Alcohol is prevalent but part of the mix and not distracting. Sweetness in there that works too. A complex beer.
