4/5  rDev -7%

12oz, bottle dated 7/9/11, poured into pint glass on 05/02/2011
Lots of hype- will it stand up?
Pours a dark orange with lighter edges. The head is super creamy and white. Great retention and great lacing. The nose is mostly hops- citrus, pine, and earth. Just a touch of honey. The taste had me saying "Bam!" in my brain. All grapefruit and honey. Maybe a bit of earth but this is hop forward and the perfect amount of maltiness to attempt a balance. Full mouthfeel and medium carbonation. F-ing wonderful. Hype withstood.

4.1/5  rDev -4.7%

Appearance – This is a clear, bright orange in color with a beautiful, lasting, lacing head.

Smell – The rich malts and huge hop profile are perfectly balanced.

Taste – The malts have a tough job but just do manage to keep the balance. They are sweet with some nice toffee and table sugar. The hops of course are monstrous but well-balanced with some nice non-resiny pine, light orange, and good grapefruit.

Mouthfeel – This medium-bodied ale is not overly bitter and has little carbonation.

Drinkability – This is actually more drinkable than their standard IPA because it is better balanced. It’s not big but is certainly a double.

I forgot who sent me this one, my apologies, but big thanks to whomever it was. Myrcenary pours a golden-yellow color with some vibrant, tangerine-orange hints at the edges. Mild clarity with only a touch of haze in the middle. The foamy white head settles quickly and surprisingly leaves only a little bit of lacing on the glass.

The hop character is pretty overwhelming with the first whiff; it's incredibly pungent and oily and sticky with a mild floral character and some lighter citrus in the background. The abundance of hops seems matched largely with a huge malt character. It smells sweet, pungent, bitter, malty, and heavy all at once. Almost reminiscent of Deviant Dale's, a beer that I was unfortunately not a fan of.

I take a sip and I'm met with pungent, dank, and lightly piney hops up front. Jesus Christ, this stuff is huge. Sticky, heavy, and resinous as hell. Resinous and dank to an unnecessary degree, really. I'm not getting the "tropical fruit-like flavor" as described on the bottle itself, unless I count the mild citrus and orange peel that I'm getting in the finish.

Myrcenary is quite bitter, though the malts are pounding with incredible sticky sweetness, too. Pushing the caramel line but erring more so on the side of toasted bread, the malts are a bit too sweet for an IPA of any kind. This beer coats your entire mouth and palate, and you can feel it long after you swallow it. Sticky, resinous, thick, abrasive, pungent, dank, you name it.

Actually kind of surprised the rating is so high for this. I had a reasonably fresh bottle, so it wasn't old or anything. Perhaps I'm not that partial to the dank and resinous bomb. I enjoy those flavors, sure, but not quite in this capacity. And the malt, being so sweet, does more overwhelming harm than balancing good. Not an awful beer, but merely average at best. I don't want my DIPAs to be this slow of sippers.

Love this beer....just sayin' Lacing noticeable but diminishing. A very inviting sweet , citrusy, floral aroma abounds. The taste again was citrusy and sweet.. slight pine like bitter, but hops are very flowery and sweet. Every sip was crisp and delicate. A beer full of liveliness....nice hoppy feel on the tongue and nose. I would order more.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #52 (May 2011):

Bright golden color is a sight, and so is the tiny-bubbled lacing that wants to stick everywhere. Smells of grapefruit, strawberries, blond tobacco and spearmint with some fruity alcoholic esters. Needless to say, the nose alerts us that copious amounts of hops were used to achieve such an amazing aroma. Just enough malt to lift this beer up, the body is a bit chewy and has some depth. Big smack of juiciness from the alcohol and hops; soon after, the hops break off and explode with bitterness and a flavor of grapefruit rind that does not seem to go away. Small nugget of malt flavor in the middle. As the bitterness levels out, the alcohol comes back around with its warmth. Juicy with a semidry finish. Epic in its own way, it’s a sipper, but one that will grow on you if you are a true hophead.

Best by 10/21/11 consumed 8/6/11

A- Pours clear golden brown with two fingers of off-white head. Head doesn't have great retention but does leave some lacing.

S - Smell is sweet and floral with quite a tropical fruit presence and some citrus on the tail end.

T - Quite juicy and fruity up front. Again tropical fruit, with more citrus in the taste than the nose. Only when the fruitiness starts to fade does any bitterness come through. The bitterness does linger after the finish. A nice take on the style.

M- Mouthfeel is rather light for the style, with a bit of stickiness.

O - Overall I really enjoyed this. By no means a 'palate wrecker' of a DIPA, but there are plenty of those to choose from. I don't know if restrained is the right word to use, but this is an easy drinking double with a great combination of flavors.

4.03/5  rDev -6.3%

12oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is a little sweet caramel malt with a lot of pungent, resiny, piney hops and a little tropical fruit.

The flavor is a touch of sweet bready malts followed by a huge hop bitterness - resin, pine, a little tropical fruit, and maybe some pungent Summit - that lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very solid DIPA. It's a completely unbalanced hop bomb, but a good one. It reminds me a little of Gubna with some balance to the Summit hops.

Got this as an extra thanks to Bardwashrind

Shared with my wife. Poured into my new belgium glass. It is a golden and transparent with a thin and wispy white head.

The nose is hops very fresh, earthy and slight citrus mix . There is a definite crystal malt backing.

The taste well is very nice matches the aroma. The mouth is surprisingly light. The is perhaps the most refreshing dipa i've ever had. The carbonation is upfront with the hop flavor. The flavors are earthy and then as the carbonation subsides it becomes bitter.

This is a very nice beer
