Very delicious! Every IPA drinker will enjoy this. The aftertaste is a bevy of fruits that you can't really pinpoint that well, but is incredible. Enjoy!

A beautiful deep gold color with moderate head. About 2ft from the glass I got the scent of bountifully floral aroma hops, and getting closer I get a more grapefruit and caramel malt profile with some deeper dried tangerine background. The flavor profile is excellent, lending a completely different story than the smell. The perfect amount of caramel and flavor malts here lend a great balance with the earthy and fruity bittering hops. The lacing down the glass is magnificent. This one finishes with just the right amount of weight and carbonation. What a perfectly balanced brew here.

Very syrupy and sweet. Hides the alcohol decently but a little too cloying.

Had on draft at the Mellow Mushroom on Mill Avenue in Tempe. Never had anything by this brewer before so it was a complete shot in the dark. Not bad at all, but nothing that re-writes the book on amazing IPAs. Would order again, and would try more from Odell if given the opportunity.

4.46/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - The beer was a copper color with a sizeable white head.

Smell - The smell strikes me as being a big dose of sour pineapple with varied ipa note in the background.

Taste - In the front, I note pineapple, sour apple, and grass. Resin notes are drawn out toward the back with biscuit impressions laying a foundation. The aftertaste varies between sweet and dry.

Mouthfeel - For an imperial, the beer goes down a little easy. Carbonation is appropriate.

Overall - This is among the best DIPAs I have had.

This is the same as their Odell iPA but cranked up to 11. An exceptional malt balanced DIPA with the same profile as their IPA, which is not always easy to replicate in a stronger format. This is as close as they could have come to doing so though.

Would absolutely seek out and purchase again.

Best by 03/10/15 Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

L- Medium/light amber, good clarity, two finger white head that dissipated to a centimeter.

S- Nice tropical and citrusy notes of papaya, pineapple, grapefruit, orange, some of that Juicy Fruit bubblegum like aroma.

T- Citrus of bitter grapefruit and orange peel, light toasted malt, light pine, light alcohol, light sweetness, light tropical notes compared to the aroma. Leaves the palette with a medium bitter citrus.

F- Heavier side of medium, only a very slight thin syrup feel to it.

O- Very nice, seems to have a lot of Simcoe hops with an aroma somewhat similar to Hopslam but to a lesser degree. Pretty cool that this is a year round beer, I would probably buy it many times if I could get it in my area.

Great DIPA!!!


It's somewhat syrupy goodness masks how strong this bad-boy is. Full of mouth-burning hops that are balanced by a strong malty backbone.

This double IPA is balanced to perfection. The citrus nodes stay on your palate long after a sip leaving you craving more. Starts hoppy with bite but finishes very smooth. As an IPA snob , I am quite shocked at the impression it had made.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Pours to a murky honey orange and gold color. Forms about a finger of lightly honey yellow soapy head. Leaves whispy lacing on the glass.
S - Aromas of sweet grapefruit, earthy herbal tones, hops, orange and apples. Very reminiscent of Lagunita's Lil Sumpin' Ale in it's aroma.
T - Strong yet balanced. Immediate sharp and quick bite of carbonation followed by quite sweet grapefruit and orange, this is balanced and rounded off by a nicely bitter hoppy finish. Excellently balanced yet strong. The 9.3% ABV is well hidden.
O - A damned good, 8.9/10 IPA in my books.
V - Good value. Four pack of bottles.

Twelve ounce bottle. Pours a crystal clear honey orange with a finger thick white head. Heavy lacing as the beer is consumed. Smells of citrus and orange blossom. Tastes of grapefruit/citrus, light earthy/grassy, barley, sweet malts. Medium body and a bit on the heavy side with the carbonation, pine and citrus resin on the tongue with a sweet malt aftertaste. I recall Odell being exceptional when I visited the brewery almost 10 years ago and this was no exception. I really enjoyed this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Pours clear golden color, 2 finger white head which dissipates quickly. Lots of lacing
Smell: Sweet citrusy smells abound, especially pineapple and orange
Taste: Right up front -BALANCED! Taste is sweet citrus forward, pineapple, finish is more bitter citrus like lemon or orange peel. The strong up front hoppy character is well balanced by the malt base.Mild alcohol burn. Excellent beer for a cold winter night.
Mouth Feel: Nice smooth coating that lasts.

On tap at Tap n Handle in Ft. Collins. At the moment it was the best beer I have ever had. I enjoyed this more than any other DIPA at the time and since. Perfectly balanced with enough hops to make you pay attention.

The only negative is I can't get it in Canada.

Pours deep orange topped by white head. Aroma of citrus with vanilla bean, grass, mint, pine. Tastes of juicy citrus, vanilla bean, fresh cut grass, pine, light fruit, , booze, bitterness and mild grapefruit towards the finish. Heavy in body with medium carbonation. A thick, juicy IPA.

I am absolutely in love with this beer. Its a lot maltier than most doubles but it balances well with the amount of hops up front. No heat coming from the 9.3%. Plenty of fruity flavor's coming out, just like you would expect from this style. Well done Odell.

4.23/5  rDev -1.4%

Floral hops, resin, dank cannabis, grapefruit, mango, and papaya form the aroma. Very complex. Flavor reveals a tropical fruit dominant base, which becomes resiny and bitter in the finish. Muddled mango, pineapple, and tangerine add intrigue. Lightly sweet caramel and toasted malt are accented by herbal notes. Flavoring hop dominant example of the style, with enough malt character to support, but not overwhelm. Very drinkable, for the abv. Becomes earthy as it warms.

This is a very good double IPA and great starting point for the uninitiated. On the nose it's got tropical fruits, pineapple was the biggest one for me, but also mango and lemon. Pours an opaque golden color with a white head. It's medium bodied, astonishingly easy drinking considering the ABV, and packs a prickly hop bite. On the palate it retains those fruits, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon, tangerine, with an excellent balance to both the alcohol and bitterness. Fantastic IPA I can't wait to have again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, copper coloring, with a slow carbonation flow, and a dense, foamy, off-white head. Nose of tropical fruit, with mango, melon, and apricot, on a toasted backbone, with subtle piney notes. Flavors are melon forward, with piney and grassy hops notes to follow. Very well balanced. Subtle pepper and roasted notes. Smooth and light, with a fruity and bitter aftertaste. Frothy, clean finish. Very solid beer.
