Can't say enough about this beer. Put it in a glass next to PTE and I don't know if I could tell you which is which. Maybe that means I am a nOOb, but I don't care. It is readily available by the four pack where I live and it's awesome. Full of in-your-face hop flavor, but nicely balanced and not overly "boozy" tasting. Keep up the good work O'Dells!

Excellent beer overall, but the bottles I have had little to no carbonation. That's a shame and may or may not be the fault of Odell, but either way, it affects how the beer tastes. Even so, this is a really nice beer. Well-balanced between the hops and the all malt that would be necessary to get such a high ABV.

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.

4.5/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber-tinged golden color; three or four inches of foam cap the liquid and leave streaks of lacing behind; great retention

Smell: Tropical fruit and citrus, with tangerine and pineapple

Taste: Fruity, right up front, with the tangerine and pineapple flavors joined, at mid-palate, by a biscuity malt character; the bitterness builds, after the swallow, though the fruit flavors fade a bit into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation and some warmth in the gullet

Overall: Another wonderful beer from the brewers at Odell; can't recall having a loser from them yet

This is a very good double IPA and great starting point for the uninitiated. On the nose it's got tropical fruits, pineapple was the biggest one for me, but also mango and lemon. Pours an opaque golden color with a white head. It's medium bodied, astonishingly easy drinking considering the ABV, and packs a prickly hop bite. On the palate it retains those fruits, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon, tangerine, with an excellent balance to both the alcohol and bitterness. Fantastic IPA I can't wait to have again.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, copper coloring, with a slow carbonation flow, and a dense, foamy, off-white head. Nose of tropical fruit, with mango, melon, and apricot, on a toasted backbone, with subtle piney notes. Flavors are melon forward, with piney and grassy hops notes to follow. Very well balanced. Subtle pepper and roasted notes. Smooth and light, with a fruity and bitter aftertaste. Frothy, clean finish. Very solid beer.
