Oh no, here I go again with IPA logic: if Odell IPA is very good, Myrcenary must be outstanding. I must resist....let my taste decide. There's 12 ounces to drink, so let's move on to the beer:
Glowing orange with a whisper of haze as it sits in the chalice. Topping it is a half inch of creamy head which turns to a lace in a minute. Still, strings of lacing cling to the glass. The aroma offers a hop sensation, bringing passionfruit, grapefruit, papaya, and a kiss of onion. Juicy and relatively sweet.
The taste is hop forward, however it "seems" balanced. Balanced and delicious. There's a piney hoppiness mixed with sweet tropical fruit at the start, and it sets the stage for the rest of the profile. There's a big bite of tangerine and orange, slightly bitter, with echoes of cantaloupe. It's a full bodied, yet the alcohol is hidden, it's very smooth, and it's very drinkable.
Sometimes, IPA logic does prevail. Like a number of Odell beers, I'd love to try Myrcenary again.
