This is not myrcenary. This is a great beer for a casual night sharing with friends. The average drinker can enjoy this one and not be blown away with hops. On the flip side the palate of the ipa drinker will be satisfied they have something that will appease both hop, and abu preference. Go for it.

Chilled bottle into a glass. An extra from antlerwrestler19. Thanks!

From notes.

A: Pours a burnt sunset orange, completely opaque. It is capped with a quickly-vanishing off-white head.

S: Great aroma of peach, pineapple, tangerine; completely unexpected. This hits my tropical fruit fetish pretty well. Mild malt nose that produces a general sweetness.

T: Toasted malt that is quickly overtaken by the tropical fruits in the nose, as well as a small weed-like pine needle flavor that emerges in the finish.

M: Medium-bodied with low-medium carbonation. It gives the beer a velvety feel.

O: This would be a great thing to have locally. Quite an excellent beer.

Simply put, if you're a Hop Hound, this beer rules. Had a taste B4 diving in, and the smell alone told me I was all in. 3 talls later, all was still dead ahead. On the road in Minnesota, so on the way back to our hotel stopped 2 buy something 4 the room, and sure enough this brew was there. Easy selection, even though some other favs were present. Bottle just as good as on tap. Is it the best i've had? Prob not, cause i've had some pretty darn awesome Ipas. For a 7.0; however, I would be hard-pressed 2 find a worthy opponent. The taste rules, grapefruit domination as I type, the smell rules, and all is most good. Even the hotel plastic cup I'm using can't taint this brew (I usually have traveling glass with me, but that's another story). Bottom-line-try it 4 sure, U won't be sorry U did. Just my 2 pennies worth. CHEERS 2 ALL!

On-tap at Odell itself, on to the beer:

This IPA owns an orange color wit hues of yellow at parts of the beer. Head retention is very good and it leaves a lot of creamy lace around the glass. With an aroma of pleasant herbal hops, you know this is an IPA. Bready malts attempt to balance the nose, but this remains a hop forward nose.Taste starts off with a crackery note, then a blast of hops brings down to door. Tea, pine, and lemon are brought forth. This is a hophead's beer, no question abiout that. It's medium bodied, and just fun to drink. A great start to the Odell tap room.
