On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a clear copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a flowery hop, rose petals and a touch of mint.

The taste presented a sharp, yet light caramel malt accented by waves upon waves of hops taking the form of dry flowers, mint and tea leaves.

The mouthfeel was light and vlean with a lingering bitterness.

Overall a very tasty and uniquely hopped ale.

Light copper in appearance with little head but some lacing left behind. There is a mild floral nose and the malt and hops blend very well in the taste. There is a spicy hop finish which is the highlight of this offering. A very good effort even if it fell a bit short of a top tier DIPA.

bomber into nonic pint. date on the bottle says 12/2/12, which im assuming is a best before considering that date has not yet happened and i doubt this was bottled in the future.

A: very clear. orange hue. head is bubbly. retention is good, not great. lacing is thick.

S: OJ. pine. slightly subdued american hops in my opinion. a little funfetti cake. i like more of an aroma overload.

T: fruity. cantalope. orange slices. the hopes are definitely balanced with a hefty grain bill. grain gets chewy and a little munich-like. finish is bitter. remains long after the sip is gone.

M: moderate carbonation on a medium mouthfeel.

D: good DIPA, but in a field with plenty-a-standout, this one is slightly pedestrian. no real complaints, just not over the top, in your face, lights out.

From TJs on 1/5. Reviewed from notes.

Deep amber in color, Odyssey has a sticky and fluffy marshmallow-like head. It produces thick and sticky spiderweb lacing. This is a good looking beer.

The aroma is odd...grassy and earthy hops with bready and caramel malt presence, along with a little bit of alcohol. The flavor is similar, as the bready and caramel malts pretty much crush everything out but the alcohol. Some caramel and sugars are also evident.

The feel is thick but lacks that sticky hop character that I really think makes some of the best DIPAs what they are. A little bit disappointed by this one. I was expecting better.
