4.29/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Bright rich golden glass has a bit of haze and depth. A razor thin cover of white foam holds and leaves spotty lacing.

Smell: Rich C hops, west coast, citric with a bit of pine. There is a bit of sweetness coming through as well, but it seems like a heavy bitter hop leaf slap is coming.

Taste: First blush is pretty balanced with the sugary crystal malt base mingles with the oily hops, then the hop note starts to grow and overpowers everything. I love hops, but this might be a bit much, it burns a bit in the finish, which invites a cool sip of beer that repeats the cycle.

Mouthfeel: Heavy body feels slick, carbonation is a bit gritty and fine, on the flatter end of the scale.

Overall: Your daily dose of hop oils, for the next week, in one glass. A nice clean base under it too, makes for a real kick in the pants. The one two punch distracts you from the heavy alcohol load it carries, but I'm quickly slowing to small sips which burn my lips slightly. We might need a new category for this one, a Quad IPA. These dials go to 11.

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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

I rarely get the chance to try beers from this wonderful brewery, but when I do they always seem to be spot on.

This beer sits in the glass with the appearance of honey or vintage amber sap. Head is a thick creamy 2 inches of fluffy off white head. Dynamic resilience is shown as this head is retained for almost 5 minutes. Bows of lace are left behind as it slowly fades.

Nose has tones of crisp leafy hops, pineapple, and honeycomb. Not incredibly dynamic but very attractive all the same.

First thing that comes to mind when I take a sip is that this beer is like silk hoppy goodness. So smooth and creamy for an DIPA it just amazing. Pineapple is the standout flavor here. The bitter feel builds comfortably as you continue to drink. Just off the charts drinkability for the style. At 9.3% the alcohol is scary well hidden. Mouthfeel does thicken a bit as you drink but it is very very nice.

This is a great brew.

4.39/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

12oz bottle into a Teku
Best before: 2/26/14

thanks to fatbeats18 for sending this one over via trade!

A: Pours a very hazy golden orange with 2 plus fingers of light tan head. Head has good retention and leaves lots of lacing.

S: Citrus, orange, sweet malts, a pungent cheese/ wet feet like aroma, floral hops, subtle piney bitterness.

T: Piney bitterness and citrus rind, balancing sweet malt backbone, floral. Bitterness is big. Well balanced DIPA. Quite tasty.

M/D: Full bodied, pretty smooth mouthfeel, ABV very well masked, drinkability is slightly above average.

O: Good, not great. I definitely prefer the regular Odell IPA. Certainly worth a try though, and glad I was able to try it. Thanks fatbeats!

Picked this up just across the border (being a Wisconsinite, closest is MN for me) and was glad I did.

Poured a very nice Golden color, maybe even a hint of amber, with a very nice head that left some lacing as it went down.

Smell was a little lacking, perhaps understated would be the best word - it made me want the beer, but didn't knock me over on the smell side.

After tasting though, how this hits the mouth is definitely the best part (not that any parts are bad). Piney, strong but not overpowering, with some grapefruit in there. Higher ABV kind of snuck up on me one beer later, definitely something I will look forward to sharing more of.

Aftertaste was a bit bitter, but who can complain, not me anyway, it was a still lipsmacking, just lingered, albiet with a solid base.

Overall I would definitely have again. 'Nuff said.

I was so excited to try Myrcenary and it did not disappoint. They do not distribute to Illinois but I was able to get one through a beer exchange with a buddy. I hope Odell Brewing takes the route off Oskar Blues and comes to the windy city!

A: Cloudly, almost looked like a wheat. Nice head. No sediment

N: Great floral nose

T: Grapefruit? Pineapple? Whatever it is, tropical and bitter. Awesome!

M: Crisp, easy drinking.

Great beer!

4.38/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: This double IPA is a nice golden color when poured into a glass. The head is white, foamy and about a finger tip thick. The beer is slightly cloudy.

Smell: There is a clear floral/fruity smell to the beer that is pleasing to the nose. The floral scent is increased with beer in mouth and makes for a sense tickling drink.

Taste: The beer smacks you with a fruity, orange like flavor right out of the shoot. Holding it in your mouth reveals a strong bitter punch and lasting dry finish. The orange peel flavor lingers long afterward. The bitterness and fruity flavors balance well to give you a beer that is an impressive attack on your senses.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, maybe a little more creamy than watery. Overall well balanced feel in the mouth with a dry finish. Very good.

Overall: This beer is among my favorites and maybe the best double IPA I've had. Myrcenary will definitely be in my regular rotation.

Man, I love the balance to this beer... a buddy went to Missouri recently and picked up some of this for me...

The beer isn't exactly what I was expecting... I was guessing an overwhelming citrusy-based hop assault and what I got was even better.... a perfectly balanced DIPA... The malts are big enough to carry the bitterness of the hops along and make this one enjoyable beer... an earlier review mentioned a peachiness to the hops and that's hitting the nail on the head... Sweet but not overly so... Hops produce more of a taste than a bitterness which I find rather refreshing as well...

This one is a winner in my book... A refreshing change of pace from some of the triple hopped monsters out there...

12oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Big thanks to BA morningthief for picking this up for me in Colorado.

Appearance: Free pour yields a 1.5 inch frothy white head that sticks around. Pours translucent orange and leaves webs of lacing.

Smell: Wow. If peach were a citrus fruit, it would smell like this. A little bit of soapy and pungent highlights. Not much to say about it other than it's big and perfect.

Taste: Surprising amount of crystal malt sweetness up front, giving way to peachy hops and a late-blooming bitterness before a very dry finish. What an interesting beer. The East Coast IPA flavors are lined with sharp flavors of orange. The heavy crystal malt and high alcohol give a burnt sugar flavor just before the almost excessively IBU-bitter finish. Orange aftertaste lingers impossibly long.

The brash IBU assault, while going along with the name, *almost* seems out of place with these soft and sweet flavors, but I'm liking it. Definitely like how it dries out in the end. This beer is like all the ones I've had from Odell; lots of care, lots of thought, well-executed, multidimensional flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, maybe a little thick and creamy rather than juicy. The bottom drops out through the finish, which is extremely dry (augmented by the high bitterness). Really good.

Overall: BA forum buzz had me thinking this was some kind of citrus-only, dried out, fully-West Coast style hop bomb. It's not... it's more like an old school East Coast IPA, but very very fresh. Tons of citrusy hop aroma, a little bit of dank, and lots of layers in the flavor. That healthy dose of sugar flavor that so often ruins big DIPAs (e.g. Southern Tier Unearthly) is present here, but the bitterness and dryness just whip the shit out of it until you can't complain about the beer being too sweet. Extra points for the aroma being some kind of fruit that I wish really existed.

If Odell distributed to my area, they would get a lot of my money.

A- Outstanding. Dark hue for a DIPA. Thin lacing medium legs with little remaining head. Color could pass as a golden sour.

S- Crazy malty. Shit, this is one of those malty DIPAs. Some people love them, some don't so much. I don't really like DIPA's. Pine, and a lot of malt.

T- Yup, tastes like 1/3 the strength of a 120 min. Crazy malty DIPA.

M- Pretty standard, maybe a bit better M than the norm.

O- I am a shitty person to rate DIPA's, but I try (as you shake your head yes then no). I am just not into malty DIPA's. I need citrus

Myrcenary pours a deep copper/red that looks absolutely delicious. Earthy floral smell with some of that cattiness too. Some like it but I find that an undesirable byproduct of some kinds of hops. Taste much the same as the nose but has a caramel sweetness to it. Can really taste the malt backing, it's quite good. Hops take the background to a very well balanced sweet malt experience. Mouthfeel is that of the beer itself, very balanced. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Not too dry either which I like.

Not tremendously complex, but a very balanced enjoyable DIPA that focuses on the malt as well as the hops.

12oz bottle, best by 4/29/2014. Thanks Felix at Steve's for generously giving me this one. Poured into an O'so snifter today, 1/26/2014.

App- Pours a beautiful light copper body, nice thick one finger white head with great retention, some lacing

Smell- Not strong. Catty, pine, resin. Bread. Dominated by the cattiness and to an extent, the pine.

Flavour- Sweet and bready, which is a big player here. Balanced by the bitter resin, pine. Quite balanced but not complex.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, perfect carbonation, nice resinous feel on the backend that is fairly bitter.

Overall- Good DIPA, very resinous and balanced but otherwise nothing mindblowing compared to the likes of Heady and Abrasive, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

4/5  rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bright orange color. Beer has a clean, transparent look. Creamy fluffy white head of about a finger and a half on the pour and was present while drinking. Above average active carbonation in the glass.

Smell: Biting pine and resin bitterness on the front. Some fruity hop tones are picked up but the pine bitterness is certainly the biggest player. A sweet malt backbone provides a good base for this aroma.

Taste: The front is a malty, caramel, molasses sweetness. Hop presence is subtle, much less bitter then the aroma would make you think. Some accents of pine, resin, medium bodied fruits, and lemon. Biggest note is how balanced the flavor is.

Mouthfeel: Balanced as well. Malt backbone provides a creamy easy drinking experience while the hop tones continue to buzz on the palate throughout drinking.

Overall: An outstandingly drinkable DIPA. Balanced is the biggest key here. Hop tones are kept in check with plenty of hops to pull you in.

4.28/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A:
Pours a partially clear amber with tinges of red with the light behind it. It has a generous beige head that seems quite even and creamy; eventually settling to a healthy, sticky coating. Very good retention; nice, sloppy lacing.

S:
Soap, hard water, wet cut grass. Smells pretty good and it is definitely all on the same page. There is a definite malt presence mellowing the bitterness but it is pretty well hidden.

T:
Tremendously bitter, but hovers on the edge of tolerable (to me, at least). Hits you right off with strong resinous hop flavors before the biscuity malt comes in and mellows everything out. Grass, pine sap, dough, oranges, more pine.

M:
Flat and dry with a silky feel on the whole and a nice balance between softness and carbonation. Medium body.

O:
Very good IIPA.
This is one of those IPAs that really gets you. But it is surprisingly drinkable and doesn't wreck you too bad for how bitter it is. The beer is a pleasure to feel and look at. Definitely worth trying if you love IPAs, it is one of the better ones in my opinion.
Would have again; worth trying.

12oz bottle from Brewforia.com. Best by 1/17/14. Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours hazy orange gold with two fingers of fluffy white head. The foam lingers quite a while and leaves beautiful sheets of lace.

Smell is floral and piney. Pine, strong citrus zest, earthy flower petals, sweet caramel malts, biscuit and a hint of berries.

Taste is nicely multi faceted. Pine, light pineapple, grapefruit peel, clementines, white peppercorn and an earthy floral note all sit atop a sweet base of caramel malt, biscuit and sugar cookie. Mild bitterness, great citrus tang, nice malt sweetness and almost zero alcohol. Very easy to drink.

Smooth, medium full feel with well integrated zesty carbonation. Pine, citrus and sweet biscuit finish.

This is a mighty fine DIPA. Not a bitter hop bomb. Instead a flavorful and many layered treat. Dangerously easy to drink given that it's over 9%. This is worth a try for sure. I sure hope to have more at some point.

4.04/5  rDev -6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a pretty orange with a melon colored hue. Cloudy and softly glowing. A finger of creamy foam to cap this beautiful color and it falls pretty quickly and leaves a small ring and cap. Some patchy lacing. Nose is grapefruit and strawberry. Has a melon like scent that is light and inviting. The malt lifts itself up to the nose only slightly with a touch of sweet promise. There's something leafy in there and I will have to call it herbal. Breath of sugar. Taste is light and has a bit of depth. The fruits are ripe and juicy, the hops are floral and bright, there's a touch of alcohol on the palate. The middle of this beer is malty but not bready. It makes the mouthfeel fuller that what you might expect and it's a bit sticky. Has a juicy and semi dry finish where this mysterious leafy taste comes back. It gives the beer an herbal depth. I don't what it is but I like it very much. The bitter stays in the aftertaste and the clear taste of the fruit juices and the grapefruit peel lingers.

This is one fabulous DIPA. Thanks Bill =)

12oz Bottle
$9.99 4-Pack
Warehouse Liquor - Duluth, MN

Enjoy by: 11/29/13 (3 months from bottling)

Myrcenary is pale golden when pouring from the bottle but takes on some orange hues when filling the pint glass. A mild haze makes the body cloudy but the tiny, slow moving carbonation is still visible rising to the thin ring of pure white foam. A little island of head floats in the middle while the ring leaves thin curtains of lace.

The nose is loaded with tropical fruit, pineapple and mango mostly. White peaches and grapefruit emerge as this warms and the fruitiness is a little sweeter than natural, a dusting of cane sugar perhaps. There's not much of a noticeable malt base but what is noticeable is sugar cookie based. The tropical fruit dominates and does a fine job.

Tropical fruits dominate the flavor profile as well with no one aspect dominating the others. Pineapple and mango lead but the peach and grapefruit are close behind each adding their own, unique depth. The malt base is soft but enough to keep the hop profile from running rampant. This is one of the more flavorful yet approachable IIPAs on the market.

For a 9%+ beer the mouthfeel is soft and luxurious without being sticky. Carbonation is active and keeps the body on the move while the bitterness is there but not abusive. There's not a hint of noticeable alcohol.

This beer has always been great and even at 3 months out I'm still immensely enjoying this bottle. Like I said before, the approachability is off the charts while still being juicy and delicious. I have yet to have an Odell beer that's even just OK, they're all great examples for the style, Myrcenary included.

Pours a honey hazy orange with a finger or so of white head that does not stick around, really good lacing

Smell is tropical, kiwi, pineapple, honeycrisp apple, floral, pine, big bready malt, caramel, mango.

Taste is nearly identical to the smell. Tropical fruits all over, kiwi, pineapple, citrus, mango, tangerine, guava, blood orange, pine sap, leefy green hop bitterness in the end is light, malt Is huge but works as a backing to the delicious hop flavor, solid sweet bready backbone... Nice stuff

Mouthfeel is on the heavier side of medium, light to moderate carbonation, slightly dryness in the finish.

Hot damn.... I am re rating this, had it at a 4 but it is much better then that. I only bought a single since the date was 11/29/13... I assume it is in the area of 5 months old... If I find it fresher I would buy cases if it this good a month before the date!

D: this is really good stuff. great hop flavor and aroma, not overwhelming or overpowering. just a great double IPA. this should be on more peoples radar.

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a large tulip glass... tonight, in my search for the perfect IPA, I am comparing this with New Belgium Rampant IPA and Ballast Point Sculpin IPA.

Compared to those two, I would rate Rampant the best overall, and Sculpin the lowest.

Myrcenary has some great fruit notes not found in the others: apricot?!? plums?!? it's different from most of the IPA's I have tasted, and different in a good way. The finish is slightly sweet, makes me want to open another bottle.

Bang for the buck: it's not as good a deal as New Belgium Rampant IPA, but it's pretty darn good. Definitely in my top 20, and maybe in my top 10, just cuz the fruit is so unique!
