COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Odyssey is an Imperial, or Double, IPA brewed with an assortment of hop varieties, and lots of them! Near orange in color, Odyssey is medium-bodied and (obviously) hoppy, with pleasant alcohol hints in the nose and finish.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 12 oz. can. Murky orange-red. Hops, yeast, alcohol, slightly metallic aroma. Taste is predominately hop. Not bad, but it has been done before.

Not huge on the way this comes together. Booze is unbalanced and finish is too wooden and astringent. Pours cloudy orange with good head and lacing. Cask at Church key.

Can->tulip. Dark orange with big heavy white head. A : citrus over pine hops, some grass, orange zest. T: bittersweet pine and citrus hops over a solid malt base. Lingering bitterness. Nice.

lamas (1371) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Can. Best by: 06/02/14. Mine says 8.4% ABV. A slightly hazy amber pour with a massive and fluffy beige head that leaves rings of lacing behind. Some pine, grapefruits, citrus rinds, light caramel, and a hint of Windex in the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied for the style. Light and biscuity upfront taste-wise with just a touch of sweet caramel. A little grapefruit and some bitter rinds at the end. Floral. A dash of spice. The dry finish lingers a bit. Nothing too memorable here.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Can! Yeah - a new IPA for summer, though a bit high in alcohol for a hot sunny day. Solid dIPA - a bit malty for my likes but well balanced nonetheless.

Best by May 30, 2014.
Appearance: The body is perfectly clear with a beautiful amber hue. The head is dense and messy, forming a thick light tan barrier.
Aroma: The aroma is citrusy, orange rind and light lemon comes to mind, perhaps left out a little. The aroma has a odd presence, sort of stinky, perhaps rubbery. Itís not very enjoyable to me, but thankfully itís weak.
Taste: The malt base is big and sweet with a sort of barleywine vibe to it, sort of brown sugary/caramel. Overtop the big malt base, balancing it out a bit is a moderate bitterness reminding me a bit of grapefruit. The finish is dry and floral, a touch spicy also, lingering for a moment or two.
Palate: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: The aroma is really the big problem for me here, itís a bit off and Iím not even sure how to explain it. As the beer opens up it goes away though. Even so this is a good value beer, I would buy it again due to the price if I wanted a cheap hoppy beer.

JonMoore (1898) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle - hazy amber colour with slim off-white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, some stewed fruit and sweet malt background, some orange peel in there also. Taste is nicely bitter with herbs, caramel. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, long bitter finish with hints of alcohol. Interesting and Iím enjoying it.

Nice and crisp, citrusy hops, nice chewy body. Smooth, slick and delicious. Very good outing from Sly Fox.

Lattina 33 cl @ Jíaime les CrÍpes. Bevuta direttamente dalla lattine che diventa una sorta di bichiere strappando il coperchio. Tosta e decisa, non male.
