corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a hazy dark blood orange color with tangerine edges and a 2.5 finger frothy white head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Complex aroma with earthy and citrus hops, light fruit, pine needle, alcohol, oak barrel and spicy peppers. Toasted oak at first with hop oils and resinous pine notes. Slight chalky pepper presence with light fruit, citrus zest, pepper, damp wood and bready yeast. Medium bodied with dry oak and sticky hop bitterness that lingers throughout. Earthy and resinous pine needle flavor with citrus fruit, pale malts, biscuit, caramel, dry oak and a subtle boozy barrel character. Slight dryness but sweet alcohol and fruit notes balance things out. Pepper presence lingers in the finish but isnt noticeable otherwise. Decent but doesnt really stand out other than having a strange combo of flavors.

wedgie9 (2661) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Tasted on 8/26/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very bright orange with a thick, off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is pretty unique, with plenty of wheat bread malt, clover honey, a sweet corn note, and just a green combination of hops and hatch green chile. The flavor is more or less the same, quite honeyed, and very complex with all of the same notes from the nose and an added perfume. The body is full with a syrup texture, average carbonation, and a long perfumed, hoppy, and hint of green chile finish. This beer is quite unique, and very nice.

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2012
750 ml bottle. Belgian yeast evident in the aroma with hints of brett and higher alcohol. Really nice nose. Hazy gold color with some visible carbonation. Frothy, small bubble, off white head that lasts initially but fully erodes by bottom of glass. Rich, higher alcohol flavor and very carbonated mouth feel. Good amount of sweetness. Full bodied flavorful beer thats a winner.

poisoneddwarf (2381) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 3, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle. I like the concept here. Aroma is nice and hoppy--grapefruit is strong; I also get the green chiles--or something vegetal anyway. Pours hazy gold with a long-sustaining thick off-white soapy head. Taste is sweet and meaty; faintly spicy at the end. Tastes more like an imperial IPA than anything, although there are so many different ingredients thrown in to the mix. Not sure what so many of these adjuncts contribute to the overrall beer. All I taste are hops and malted barley with a suggestion of green chiles (??). The oak is nonexistent, but I guess at only 10% of the mix it should be (why only 10%?). An interesting concept, again, but some of these ingredients should be much more prominent (at least noticeable!). That doesnt take away from the fact that its pretty tasty stuff, though. Re-think: beer starts to wear out its welcome after sitting in the glass awhile, lowering my overall a point.

portableparty (2303) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with a white soapy head that fades to spotty film. Aroma is grain fruit like oranges and rind and wine corks (wood) with faint caramel. Taste has a good bitterness and dry fruit of oranges and wood and I get faint wine characteristics. Palate is medium and drying with a chalky finish. This is a complex brew. Another bottle down the road may bring me back to this rating. Non the less this is very enjoying and the alcohol is very well hidden.

McNeillR (2264) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Hazy honey golden body, starburst dusting of a straw head. Sweet and earthy nose, slight wheat itch. Super sweet, almost barely wine initial taste with a syrupy mouthfeel weirdly lifts as it rolls to the midrange, fluffy and sprite witha a juicy edge. Finish is where it turns love/hate. Fresh heat arrives as youre enjoying the refreshment. Chilli burn erupts on the fringes gluped in a sweet honey glaze and then every bud on your tounge and fissure on the roof of your mouth is flamed lightly with a linger that lasts two beers down the line. A fantastic but boggling beer.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine Scottsdale. Pours a hazy straw color with nice off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma has resinous hops, florals citrus and a bit of wood. Taste is sweet malts with some honey sweetness and finishing bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick texture. The oak is noticeable and distinctly Odells in flavor. That is the same oakiness is found in several Odell?s beers. A nice idea from the brewer and one that I enjoyed more than their other offerings.

Beerdrinker79 (2116) - Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2012
750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is funky and sour, hops. The taste is wheat, a little funky, tangy, wood, hops, alcohol, maybe honey. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Overall I liked this beer, but the alcohol could have been better hidden, and it would have been nice to detect some of those New Mexico chilies.

TheHOFF43 (2046) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at a family tasting. Pours golden with some head. Flavor is very unique and sweet. It almost has a honey flavor to it. You can taste a lot of the different ingredients and it is quite complex. Surprisingly good.
