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.

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.

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.

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.
