Mostly clear gold - a fairly straightforward, clean and moderately sweet DIPA - flavors of vanilla and earthy hops, with a bit of coconut and a cool, minty character from the hops - very well-hidden alcohol - lingering vanilla - not bad - not sure what makes it worth 14 bucks a bottle.

750ml Bottle: Got in trade from stumpyiliz; THANKS Aaron! Aroma of malt, hops, citrus, oranges, fruit, a hint of honey, and a hint of chili. Poured orange in color with a large, loose, rocky, foamy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Very hazy. Sparkling. Full of tiny-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, citrus, orange, grain, and a hint of resin. Medium body. Sticky, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, citrus, orange, hop finish is dry. 9.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

750ml bottle thanks to Nick3. Cloudy yellowish golden in color with a lasting white head. Interesting aroma with sweet malt, floral notes, chile peppers, and honey. Flavor is a bit strange but not bad really. Rather sweet with honey and wheat, citrus, floral notes, and booze, with some vegetable notes. Medium-plus bodied with average carbonation. A strange brew. Not bad, but I wouldnt want a lot of it.

A steady pour into my teku glass produces a one finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a light copper / pale amber color that shows a clear, lighter version of the same when held up to the light. The aroma smells of sweet grassy grain, alcohol, it has an earthy spiciness to it (sort of like coriander), a berry like fruitiness, a concord grape like note, and a sweet caramel like note.

The beer has a bitterness to it up front that mellows a bit as the full / rich beer flows across the palate. The beer has a concentrated malt flavor to it without being overly sweet; quite bread and cracker like with some hay like notes to it as well. The finish has some hot higher alcohol notes to it that doesnt get too overwhelming, but definitely lingers on the palate with some spicy notes. There is a certain earthy quality to this beer, and this accentuates a full pale grain flavor. There really is a lingering spiciness to this beer, it is quite light, but I can feel a touch of a burn on my lips even.

Interesting, and certainly not bad, but not really my cup of tea. The chile addition was an interesting development considering I wasnt expecting it coming into this. The beer as a whole just doesnt seem to complete mesh in an integrated fashion though.

12 oz draft pour at the Martin City Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is haze golden yellow with a smallish white head. Nice lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is light floral hop, natural honey sweetness along with some toasted malt. A touch of vegetal green pepper is present as well. The taste is sweet fruity malt, apricot and honey, turning to a bright hop spice, an almost fruit stripe gum character. The wood barrel shows itself in the lingering finish. The alcohol heat also makes an appearance at that point, though its decently integrated with the texture of the beer. The palate is medium to heavier bodied, lower carbonation level, and a thicker finish. Certainly a unique beer, nice one.

Shared by raveskdr. Thanks Chris. The beer is golden orange hued and mildly hazy with a quarter inch of head. The aroma brings citrus, toffee, malt, booze. A bit sweet with a touch of honey perhaps. Alcohol presence is there throughout. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Overall, I thought this was ok.

750 ml bottle at a local high-class restauraunt-pours lightly hazy orane with a small fizzy white head. nose is wack-herbal hops, honey, vanilla, oak, light pepper. flavors of honey, lite hops, lite alcohol lite vanalla and lots of honey sweetness. THe finish has quite a bit of heat-i dont know about hte people saying this is easy drinking. It took me quite a while to finish this 750-definately felt/tasted the alcohol. THe finish is very intereesting-lots of wierd things going on. The cool thing about this beer, you can pretty much pick up all the given ingrediants in this brew in the flavors. Well done by Odell once again.

750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Served at cellar temperature. Pours an enormous white head, with extensive lacing, over a very effervescent, slightly hazy gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is pine, light citrus, apple, pear...taste is light sweet, with touches of pepper, light fruits including pear, apple, finishing slightly sweet but with attendant phenolic spice bitterness....mouth feel medium to light, alcohol hidden, carbonation very high with continuing frothy head. Although this has been created with a melange of ingredients from a wide geographic area, it works. What has been created ends up being a Belgian Golden Strong Ale. It meets the BJCP criteria of that style almost to a "T". While this style is not the best of the Belgians, it still is more interesting than "Specialty Grain" as a title. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

On tap; poured an amber-orange color; aroma of lemon, caramel, citrus and honey. Flavor had alot of lemon and honey; a touch of earthy hops in the finish. Some touches of bread and caramel. Somewhat of a hybrid and a good stuff.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours slightly hazy orangish color with off white head. Doughy aroma with floral hops and tropical fruits. Pineapple and orange flavors with some bread dough, grapes, and a hint of oak. Medium body with lively carbonation. Very saison-like. Im liking this one. Thanks Craig.
