4.19/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Re-Reviewing because I have a fresh bottle and I've recently gotten much more appreciation for this style.

Appearance: A golden liquid with great clarity and a thin off-white head that looks like it will leave nice lacing. Micro size effervescent bubbles slowly ascending. Real nice looking DIPA.

Aroma: A healthy mix of hops and malts. Pine and pineapple right away with lots of crystal malt. Some citrus but a mostly a mix of tropical and piney hops. Not as aromatic as I had hoped.

Taste: Starts with a light zap of bitterness on the tongue accompanied by pine and tangerine hop flavors. The crystal and caramel malts are not far behind and strike a near perfect balance in this heavily hopped brew. The hops that are implemented are not specified on Odell's website but I would venture a guess that Simcoe (pine) and Cascade (citrus/grapefruit) are on the list. Don't taste any of the 9.3% ABV besides a very slight heat in the back of the throat. It's listed as 70 IBUs which is a walk in the park for most hop heads. Perhaps because of the hop/malt balance the bitterness is not as extreme as a typical DIPA. Finish is dry with lingering pine and hints of tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel: Just a tad above medium which is on the lighter side for something this potent but makes it all the more drinkable. Smooth carbonation and a great drinking experience.

Final Thoughts: I'm glad I took the time to re-review this one so as to really enjoy the flavors. If you are in search of a superbly balanced DIPA then look no further. I'm shocked this beer doesn't get more hype, maybe because it's available year round at a steal ($10/4-pack). Would I drink it again? You betcha, three left in the fridge that will be calling my name all week.

4.15/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Blonde, copper hue that is hazy. Lacy, creamy off-white head with minute but steady carbonation. Head continues to cling to glass after many sips.

S: Resinous pine, honey, toffee, and a bit bready on the nose.

T: Big smack of pine, sticky bread pudding, and some subtle citrus flavors. Pine flavor remains at the forefront, but fruit juiciness shines through as beer warms up. Finishes nicely with a caramel, malty sweetness.

M: A little astringent, burning sensation from the hop oils, but not a palate destroyer. Overall, a buttery drinking, warm on the throat feeling. Bitterness lingers and never fully dissolves.

O: A great example of a Double IPA that doesn't destroy your mouth but provides plenty of the signature elements - strong pine resin, sticky mouthfeel, boozy but not too much. Not a citrus bomb on the nose or in flavor, but the malt elements compliment the heavy pine features.
