4.28/5 rDev +11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Hazy neon yellow/orange with a one finger foamy white head.
Aroma: Yeast and earthy/grassy hops. Subtle crystal and pilsen malts.
Taste: Really good grain flavors in here. Sweet and spicy (maybe rye malt?). There is also a good hop presence and a hop flavor that makes it uniquely Odell's. Citrus and sweet fruit juice. Really digging this one. Almost drinks like an ale. Don't taste any of that 8.1% ABV.
Mouthfeel: Silky smooth and yet assertive on the palate. Medium bodied but feels much more robust. Highly drinkable.
Final Thoughts: If I was drinking this blind I'd probably think it was lager version of Odell IPA. It has that great hop flavor and juicyness that they pack most of their brews. Would I drink it again? Yes, wish they'd make a sessionable version!

On tap at D&T in Houston.
A: Pours a chilled hazed golden/orange color which persists even after this warms a bit. A minimal white head forms, and recedes in a second. Not much lace.
S: Sweet, lightly breaded malts up front. Then very fruity and hoppy in the nose. Plenty of esters. Maybe some odd spice in the nose?
T: Lightly sweet and sugary malts. Then the fruity hops take over. Mango, passion fruits even. Fruity esters as well. Not much more is going on, and really has no resemblance to a Pilsner in any sense. Not bad if you think of it as a slightly sweet DIPA.
M/D: A full body with low carbonation. Not nearly enough crisp, dry bite with to much sweetness. A slow sipper, but kind of enjoyable. I got trough the pint, but probably am not getting anymore.
If I forget this is suppose to be any kind of lager, it is just a middle of the road DIPA. I am not sure what a Double Pilsner is suppose to be, but this is not what I have in mind. Fails miserably on style points. Really just an average DIPA that happens to be made with a lager yeast that seems to be fermented at warmer than normal temperature.

M - Well carbonated, smooth.
O - Perfect take on a double pilsner: sweet, malty, easy to drink.
