3.55/5 rDev -3.3%
A-orange, ruby, really thick white head, one inch, settles fairly quickly. Moderate lacing.
S-grass/hay, alcohol, raspberries
T-mint, raspberries, blackberries, pine, silver
M-sharp, bitter, wine like in its weight and alcohol.
O- I'm finding this similar to flying dog's single hop El Dorado in the sense that the alcohol and flavor make this orange hop monster something you can enjoy with foods that are otherwise paired with wine. It's also mind boggling to have such a complex bet from a plain 12 oz can, though I guess these cans have already been a staple of some crazy brews.

3.6/5 rDev -1.9%
Odyssey on-tap pours a honeyed orange amber with a flat cap of foam. Looks alright with that nice drip lacing.
Mostly pine and citrus peels. Orange and grapefruit and some resinous character. A kiss of hemp oil, bitter greens, and raw hop leaf. Malty with some good toasty evidence. Sugars are caramelizing.
Husky bitterness with pine and pink grapefruit leading the charge. Some bitter orange and unripe melon in there, too. Caramel malts with more bitterness from the toast. Some astringency from the acid content. A little rough, but tasty. Booze is above medium for the percentage. Lacks smoothness. Not sure if they were going for such a bitter hop bomb.
Take it or leave it with the others in its company.

2.8/5 rDev -23.7%
On tap at Molly's Irish pub & sports bar in Bethlehem, PA.
A- pours an orange/amber color with a light, white head that dissipates quickly. Some lacing around the glass upon drinking further.
S- not very much on the nose. Some earthy hop aromas and a heavy malt forward profile. Very lacking in this category
T- tastes of bitter hops, biscuit malt, and a slight carbonation. The hops overpower the malt on the front and finish, malt flavor is prevalent just after the initial sip where some sweetness is detected.
M- prickly on the tongue but not overly carbonated. Slick on the tongue.
O- at 8 plus percent abv, there are better imperial IPAs out there that will deliver more flavor and much satisfaction than this brew. Although this brew is not bad, it's not fantastic.
