(S/)trolling some liquor hideouts on an airport commute searching for anomalies. The shop wasn't open for another fifteen minutes, but the steward let me in. He was phoning friends and texting; I had the run of his 200 square foot liquor hole. Searching. Searching. Searching. One lonely four pack of Odell's Myrcenary.
I quickly set my purchase up and get ready to pay. "One minute Phil, I have a customer". The rest is a long drive of
Fast forward two days.
This bottle art is amazing. Top is popped. The smell is ambrosia. Pours out a bronze-yellow with wisps of white sea foam. Smelling again; floral and yeasty. Taste is bitter, warming, hops, malt, sweet, yeast. How did my glass get empty? Shrug and pour. This has more balance than most Olympic gymnasts. 9.3% abv? The alcohol is playing hide and seek in my glass. The mouth feel is full. So close to perfection.
I can't seem to find any excuse why I wouldn't buy more-- if I can find it.

Myrcenary Double IPA tasted at Rodeo Goat on tap in Ft Worth, TX.
A: Hazy golden orange, moderate head, fairly creamy, nice laciness after settling.
S: floral, citrus, sl. tropical fruit
T: Citrusy, orange/tropical fruit, sl. piney hops. Amazingly sweet, but in no way overpowering maltiness for balance. Definitely impressed.
M/B: Medium body, a bit creamy, very well balanced beer.
Overall: Easily one of the best double IPAs I've ever had. Highly recommend and will be consumed whenever possible.

Have had a few times since landing in Houston. Most recently from a growler purchased from Premium Draught.
A: Pours a vibrant copper/orange color with a touch of haze. A two finger creamy white head rises, with good retention initially. That eventually recedes to a ring with plenty of lace.
S: Citrus, orange rind, piny hops. Some malty sweetness for balance. That is about it, I am really not getting much.
T: Well balanced with citrus, orange, and piny hops with the biscuit and sweet malts. A slightly bitter finish, but overall not much lingers. The balance is nice, but fairly simple. Not a bad thing at all.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Actually seems a bit thin and watery for me. Well balanced, and not much alcohol presents, so this is pretty easy to put back.
Not bad at all. I will enjoy the rest of the growler, and really like the balance here. Though I feel there are better version of the style sitting on the shelves. Double Jack and Endeavor to name two.

The beer comes in an extremely dark red orange.
The aroma has a bright floral, citrus, and piney aroma that reminds me of Centennial. A huge sugary candy sweetness. A dried sugary pineapple and mango, citrus peel.
The flavor follows with tons of similarity to Hopslam. A dried pineapple note, herbal, and floral hop note with a big candy sweetness, almost like the honey in Hopslam. There’s a light floral and green forest pine that Centennial offers, as the hop notes have similarities to Bell’s Two Hearted. The finish is quite bitter of again floral with a good amount of drying. Tinges of alcohol hint at the finish.
The beer is absolutely delicious and better than Hopslam because of the light malt and more vibrant hops. This has a best by date of 4/1/14, which makes the beer almost 100 days old. I imagine that this beer is better when fresh, but that is pure conjecture.
