A: Poured a deep sluggish yellowish-orange color with a nice white cap, 1/4 head and white bubbles

S: Old bread, pine and faded citrus. Pretty mute for this style.

T: Pine, light citrus and big thick, chewy caramel bread body that is completely unfitting. The finish is heavy, reluctantly sweet, lightly boozey with a an old faded hop presence.

M: Big body, heavy, sticky, sweet lowly carbonated

O: Not my cup of tea. I probably won't try this again but this was a good tick as it was an extra and on my GOTS list. Thanks Lobo.

From 12oz bottle to Bruges hybrid glass on 1/6/12
*From notes

-- Thanks, Siege --

A: Setting sun golden. Unfiltered. A good pour yields a one finger white head and decent lacing.

S: Intense tree sap and pine resin. A bit unfresh, maybe? Getting in there a bit deeper, I get a touch of mango.

T: Extremely piney. Too much, in fact. It's prickly, unjuicy and not all that pleasant of a beverage. It's also not the freshest DIPA I've had (from what I can tell, anyway).

M: Meh. It's alright, and utterly unspectacular.

O: This reminded me a lot of Short's Huma-Lupa-Licious: overtly pine forward, with little complexity or drinkability. Not something I'd recommend, and one I'll be avoiding in the future.

Thanks to Chris for this, drank from a Hill Farmstead glass... pours an ugly dark straw, watery head... resin oil nose with some tropical fruits, a bit of mango, car piss, too harsh for me... not a fan of the taste, lemon zest, skunky pine, sweet finish... not a fan

2.9/5  rDev -32.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 33 cl snifter. Best by date 6.12.13.

Look- Pale amber with two and a half fingers of dense white suds that fall slowly to a tight cap, light haze. Ropes of sticky lace adorn the glass as it empties.

Smell- Sweet, mucho pineapple. Not much else makes it through; swirling brings out lemon candy and honeydew melon. Very, very sweet, but not entirely off-putting with the fruit accompaniment.

Taste- Much like the aroma, very sweet and hop-driven. Light treacle and pineapple, starfruit. Moderate bitterness on the back end with a touch of booze- rather than playing nicely the bitterness accentuates the booze and gives the overall impression/aftertaste of gin.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full, moderate to high carbonation. Chewy. Fairly boozy, warming and some harshness after the swallow.

Overall- Pretty middling for a DIPA; nothing I've not seen before and borderline overhopped, too boozy for my liking. If you're of the "More hops! Higher ABV!" mindset, you'll probably like this, but I'm not really a fan.

2.91/5  rDev -32.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

9.3% ABV. Picked up a 4 pack of this in Castle Rock. Expectations are above average; Odell is probably the best brewery in Colorado. Reviewed live. 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with appealing label art and branded pry-off cap served into a nonical pint glass in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed as a Double IPA because it identifies as such. Best before: 10/09/13C.

Served cold, straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a four finger wide head of supple white colour, nice thickness, decent frothiness, and great (~9+ minute) retention for the ABV. Uneven inconsistent lacing as the head recedes. Fluffy and appealing. A healthy head overall.

Body colour is a clear translucent copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Decent vibrance.

Overall, it's within conventions for the style but is pretty standard fare. Not unique or special. No overt flaws are obvious.

Sm: Herbal hops are dank as hell, cut by a medicinal edge. Pale malts, some caramalt, honey. Grapefruit zest. Candi sugar lends some heavy handed sweetness. Perhaps some clean munich or vienna malts. Tropical fruit notes: tangerine, peach, mango, maybe passionfruit. A mint plant - but not mint itself; perhaps sage? I don't get any bright clean citrus; it's not a pleasant aroma per se. Some biscuit malt. Doesn't seem balanced; there's some obvious hop bitterness. Some floral hops.

Admittedly, the tropical fruit aspect just isn't to my personal tastes. Overall, the aroma lacks the evocative hop character I'd expect in a great beer of this style. I'm not a fan of the hop choices so far, but I'm hoping the flavour profile is a pleasant surprise. Aroma is strong overall.

T: Pale malt, biscuit malt, caramalt. Munich/Helles malts seem out of place here. Hm.

The hop profile is indistinct and lacks cohesion or good integration. I get muddled tropical fruit notes including tangerine, mango, passionfruit, and peach. Nowhere do I find the oily, nectary, and/or citrusy hop character I crave in a good Imperial IPA. Just tropical and floral hop notes. I'm not a fan of these hop choices and their effect on the flavour profile.

The hops aren't well married to the malty base. The balance is off, but luckily there's no overt naked hop bitterness. It's okay, but I'm not a huge fan of it. Lacks subtlety and (for the style) complexity. No yeast character or alcohol comes through. The candi sugar sweetness really doesn't fit well here at all.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Nice thickness and carbonation. Decent presence on the palate. Full-bodied. Suits the flavour profile well in a general sense, but it certainly doesn't feel custom-tailored to it.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable in general, but I wouldn't get it again. There are far better Imperial IPAs on the market at this price point. As much as I love Odell, this doesn't earn its current place in the top 250. Hides its ABV decently.
