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.

23.12.06 Bomber 2006. Crystal clear caramel amber color with sticky off-white head of medium size and largish bubbles. The aroma is pleasant enough with plenty of grapefruit, hints of pineapple, and a bit of alcohol. Bit thin on the palate, and not much malt backbone, but lots of resinous and major grapefruit pithy bitter astringency. Alcohol comes through again retronasally. Finish is all harsh bitterness, mostly that pithy bite, but itís quite refreshing and drinkable despite that (because of that) and weirdly reminds me of warm Fresca. Oh well, I canít make up my mind but I think itís not bad.

Thanks Dr.Jay for bringing. This is being rated in three places. Light orange body with big bubbly soup creamy head. Orange citrus taste, very bitter with fresh good carbonation.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Pheonixville, last ipa vertical. Pour was a clean golden/orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was pine, grapefruit, and subtle lemon juice. Flavor was very grapefruity, with lots of pine, pineapple, grass, and a dry, flowery finish. Flavors were sort of hodge-podged but enjoyable nonetheless.

This beer was "almost" a great beer, but it was really lacking in the Imperial part. Too thin to claim it is Imperial, and the hops were just not that full and robust for my taste. It was be a decent generic IPA. Looks good: frothy head/yellow body. Citrusy orange zest in the flavor, refreshing. Not too sweet, not to bitter.

notalush (5166) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2006
On tap at Mugís Ale House - a servicable double IPA - woody, hop/herb nose with a hint of background malt - flavor is a bit sweeter than expected considering the hop-dominant aroma - a kind of orange marmalade flavor fights the grapefruity hops for dominance, resulting in a kind of imbalance, but a tasty experience none-the-less.

On tap at Mugís Ale House. Clear, light copper color with a medium off white head. Big citrus hop nose with some pine and a wee bit of caramel malts. Flavor was even more lopsided on the hops side. Hot, hoppy flavor with just a bit of sweet malt in the background. I love hops and the hop profile here is great, I just wish it was a little more balanced. Still very good.

Tap at north star, which, christ, sold it as an imperial stout and made me think theyíd served me the wrong beer. Notes: Looks amber?! No stout character. Tastes like a hoppy ESB; I believe Iíve been served yards ESB by mistake? No!? Well.... going back and considering this was supposed to be double IpA, it makes more sense now. Still itís just typical stuff, it didnít have much of an "imperial" character if you ask me. Iím for local brewers succeeding as much as the next local guy, but stuff from this place lets me down compared to its reputaiton here, consistently. Iíve never had it at their brewpub, and assume most others here rate it from that. Maybe they need to work a little better with the vendors to make sure it gets served with good quality. I think itís vastly overrated even discounting for my confusion thinking it was a stout; itís not bad, but itís nothing special. It tastes like yards and a dozen other beers besides that; it really lacks a personality.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2010 12/12/10 (2010 Vintage): Aroma of caramel malt, hops, Earth, citrus, grapefruit, slight pine, light grass, and some herbs. Poured orange in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white/beige head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, light caramel malt, resin, light grass, and Earth. Medium body. Slightly tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, heavily bitter, hops, grass, pine, light caramel malt, finish is dry. Extremely drinkable; I could drink this all day long. 8.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout. 8/4/8/5/17 = 4.2 1/4/06: Draught at Phoenixville: Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Beautiful amber/orange color. Forthy light tan head of good size. Head was lasting. Great lacing. Flavor of strawberry, grapefruit, pine. Bitter with a short bitter finish. Full bodied. Average carbonation. Smoother and mor balanced than 2004 version, but not as hoppy or balls to the wall biter. A DIPA I am happy to drink, but maybe I prefer the varitals. 6/5/8/5/18=4.2

Drought @ Sly Fox Pheonixville: I have a cold, so this part was not so easy... Smells sweet and hoppy (floral & citrus). Large, creamy/frothy white head which lasted throughout. Excellent white lacing. Clear, slightly sparkling body. Medium orange color. Real nice looking. Initially, moderately bitter, then slightly sweet and citrusy on the tongue, followed by a great dry finish. Tasted wonderfully of the many hops (8, I think) in it. Not dominated by one type in particular. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a dry finish. Very good Imperial. Not too much of an alcohol taste as too many Imperials have. Really a great conclusion to this years 9 IPAs. I cannot wait for next year!

Excellent brew by Brian OíReilly. Combination of 13 different hop varieties makes up this IPA...too many to list. Great flavor and perfectly balanced.
