This one was awful. I threw up after drinking a few ounces.

A: Pours a dark red color, not much head or lacing down the glass
S: Smells very sweet and malty with nice earthy/piney hop scent
T: Much the same at the smell, very earthy and piney throughout. With some bready and slight fruity flavors up front
M: Medium bodied beer, carbonation seems pretty good
O: This is a different beer, not horrible but not really my favorite beer. I had trouble drinking it actually, really weird tasting.

Not a big fan of this, the juniper doesn't really show up too much, and its fairly bitter without the body to back it up.

Thanks to stx00lax for the bottle. Served in a Bell's tulip.

Pour yields a dark amber brew with a half-finger white head that fades pretty quickly but leaves nice spotty lace and has a thin collar. The nice is really quite plan with just a touch of malt and no hint of the juniper. The flavor has a bit of moderately-sweet malt and some bread crust, along with a bit of juniper in the midpalate and corresponding bitterness in the finish. Medium body with above average carbonation. Pretty good. Thanks again.

Nice copper pour, white head with decent lacing.

Smells, super nice. Lots of juniper and a nice malt background.

Taste: Not bad when it is cold. The juniper is nice and very present. As it warms, though, the beer becomes pretty harsh. Kinda grody actually. Bleh.

Mf is a little watery.

Pretty happy I didn't choose to share this beer with my homebrew club members. Its nice when cold, but when it dips a little below fridge temp it gets a harshness that makes it really unpleasant.

22oz bomber split into pint glasses.

A: Dark, clear and beautiful mahogany with lots of foamy head and some lacing on the glass.

S: Plain amber nose; bready malt base, earthy notes but overall a low hop presence, hints of pine and nuts and Juniper. Big bready/slightly toasted malty nose.

T: A bit more dynamic, hints of nuttiness and dark toasted caramel, even some suggestions of chocolate as it warms. More faint notes of earthy hops and Juniper barriers.

MF: Medium body, clean and malty, low bitterness.

O: Pretty plain amber ale, really. This is my first offering from Odin and honestly I'm not in a hurry to try anything else.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a striking deep ruby color. The poured very clean and clear with just under an inch of khaki colored head that had average retention and left little squiggles of lacing.

A deep malty aroma greets the nose with a slight hint of spicyness on the back. The flavor wasn't as malty as the aroma had led me to expect. There was certainly a solid malt foundation, but had a good balance with a solid hop tanginess on the finish.

The body was medium in general and average for the style. Drinkability was very nice. Overall, a good solid first beer from Seattle's newest brewery. Worth trying if you see it.

Pours a really lovely ruby-brown colour. Expecting a gin-worthy explosion of juniper on the nose, what you really get is an earthy, herbal whiff and some nutty notes as well. The palate is similar. There are a lot of earthy notes from the hops and juniper. Also some nice nutty, roasty malt notes. Drinks kind of like an amber, kind of like a brown ale. Definitely a unique beer.
