And THIS...is ODELL???

Mercynary Double India Pale Ale - 12oz bottle.

WOW! It poured a very uninteresting hazy pale yellow, BUT what an interesting beer! I would include THIS BEER in every IPA tasting just to show what beers RULE the fringe of this beloved hophead style. The bouquet was IMMEDIATELY enticing; a fresh herbal slap with a decidedly citrus edge that instantly made me think of golf balls and lemonade & gin high balls…momentarily forgetting that Spring is STILL four months out and I'm STILL in 2 feet of February permafrost here!

*sigh*

The beautifully refreshing aroma was SO NICE that I kept relishing in it for quite a few minutes before actually partaking a sip. The flavor hit was just a hatch mark under the predicted aromatic (as expected) but I was astonished by the long lemony, ginny aftertaste. I have never had a beer like this. KUDOS to the brewers for giving me an unexpected fast curve ball inside and up…leaving me looking…in AWE.

The head was thin (within category) with some lacing. The only other drink I've had reminiscent of this was something that was a malty hard lemonade concoction several years ago which straddled the category of hard fruit drink vs. beer. The brand name, place and event escape me – but a police report is probably in there somewhere…

I may LOVE IPA's, Stouts and Bourbon Porters, BUT I bend the knee to American Double IPA's, the Lord and the SR-71 Blackbird!

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.
