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: JAN 8, 2007 aroma is lacking. I really couldnít pick up too much besides some hoppy fruity type notes. copper in color with a good head. flavor had a lot of fruity hoppy notes. Much like the stone 10th anniversary. A lot of those tropical fruit type hop notes. so very enjoyable flavor. Nice oily palate. Would have been awesome had it had aroma. still pretty good

Bomber. Poured clear orange with a cream colored head, leaving spots and squiggles of lacing. Aroma kind of faint and timid for the style--basically orange and caramel. Candied orange peel and medium malt flavor with a prominent but subdued hop biterness arising on the finish. A nice "restrained" 2IPA- pleasant lingering hop flavor- not over the top H-Bomb hoppy. Balanced well with the lighty sweet malt foundation. On the other hand, for a 2IPA it lacks any stimulating complexity of some other brews in the style--the same issue I had with the Ithaca Double IPA. Aside from that nitpicking, overall a nice little hoppy brew.

On tap at Andyís Corner Bar. So apparently this is made with every hop used in their super IPA bonanza they have every year. Well, itís got crazy hop tastes and flavors. Pretty fun, actually.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2009 Amber color with light head. Nice, highly hopped aroma with a variety of citrus, floral, piney aromas. Taste is a rather nice smorgasbord of sticky & sweet. Supposedly there are about 9 hop varieties in this, and you can definitely taste it. The "problem" with this beer - its not much of a "Double" IPA. Maybe you could call it a 1 & 1/2. Lots of hops, but without the big malt profile. Even if its just a souped up standard IPA, I like it. Another good Sly Fox Brew!

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.
