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

Wonderful amber with gold/yellow highlights. Big white head.

Big fresh assertive pineapple nose. Fresh, fruity and appealing.

Huge rich mouthfeel with great body and creamy character. Wonderful balance and with a big bright profile.

Gigantic fruity hop bitter flavors that are long lasting, rich, bold and almost daring. This is a rival for any of the biggest and best DIPAs around.

Flavor profiles carry over to a big grapefruit to pine finish.

A: two finger head, foamy head. Gold with amber hues.

S: very floral with a musty and pungent hop aroma.

T: more floral with mostly pine in the background and some citrus notes. The hop character is decent but a little dissapointing for a DIPA

M: moderate carboation and medium body.

Overall: not too bad but still not the kid of DIPA I want.

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has no signs of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that left some lacing on the surface and down the edges of the glass.
S: The hops contribute moderate aromas of grapefruit to the smell.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very citrusy and filled with flavors of grapefruit.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very easy to drink considering its strength and doesn’t have any hints of alcohol in the taste.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

pours a very average looking slightly cloudy honey color, with a big fluffy white head that dies back pretty quick. smells awesome, a huge citrus hop aromatic palate, ive got grapefruit rind, orange juice, fresh lemons, and that classic resiny hop bitter/sweet combo. maybe even a subtle english malt or two underheath. flavor is nice, not as robust and interesting as the nose, but solid. its bitg and strong and hoppy without being sweet, which is welcomed here. this does justice to the hop flower, i like that its still kind of delicate. feel is nice as well, again not thick and syrupy like some big india pales can be. not overly carbonated, and a nice hoppy finish. hard to imagine its over 9% abv. feels sessionable to me. overall its a nice beer, but the bang for your buck is in the regular ipa from odell, which is over 7% and is superior to this in a lot of ways. odell though, can do no wrong in my eyes.

This poured out as a clear golden yellow color with a white foamy hea on top. The retention and lacing are good. The smell is a little weaker than I expected. Subtle floral an fruity notes on the nose. The taste is pretty strong, lots of lemony citrus flavors. Nice malt back bone. The mouthfeel is smooth and oily, nice easy going carbonation. Overall very good. Really really good stuff.

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

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

A delicious IPA with bold and resiny, drippy hop goodness of citrus, earthy/herbal, and fresh wet-hop grassy character.

Myrcenary pours with a near-brilliant medium golden color, a medium density of froathy white foam, moderate lace, and good retention. A good looking beer, but perhaps a bit of coarse filtration has helped the haze but hurt the head chracter just a touch.

Vibrant aromas of tropical and citrus fruits blend with herbal grasses and spruce for a complex aromas with the nuances of tangerine, pineapple, catty-garlic, fresh cut grasses, and a tinge of lemon- all backed by a thin caramel barley malt scent that lurks in the background.

Flavors are just as descriptive, but not with the intensity or zeal that is promised by the nose. The light caramel taste delivers the base malt presence that IPA's deserve, but none more. This allows for the on slaught of hops to deliver the bold tropical, fruit, and herbal flavors at mid palate and extending through 'til the development of resiny bitter hops in the finish. Delicious and balanced, but taking the foot off the pedal from what was experienced in the nose.

Medium bodied, the beer has a mild early creaminess that develops into a timid malty mouthfeel with mint, herbs, and alcohol dryness that seeps into the aftertaste of citrus bitterness and earthy grass in aftertaste.

In some ways the beer reminds me of Sculpin IPA and Lake Eerie Monster, but with a thinner body and less consistency as the beer moves from aroma to taste to mouthfeel. But still a wonderful beer that deserves celebration, over and over again.

Thanks given2flybrewing and bbehr!

Served in a tulip.

Pour yields a peach-colored brew with a good white head with moderate retention. Good sticky lacing as it falls down the glass. The nose is really overpowering with an overload of tropical fruits, mostly mango with a bit of pineapple. Behind that, there's a touch of citrus. The flavor is along the same lines--no malt, just plenty of hop character. The flavor isn't as strong as the nose would suggest, though still quite nice. There's a decent amount of bitterness in the background, as well as a bit of alcohol to balance. Not too bitter; the hop flavor seems to be the showcase here. Overall, a very nice beer that I will gladly have again.

Fresh bottle from fishpondmanager. Thanks!

Appearance: Pours the color of peach flesh. Rests in the glass with two fingers of lasting foam, and clarity is excellent.

Smell: Quite a bit of juicy citrus, with lesser notes of tropical fruit, fresh herbs and pine. Booze is fairly noticeable beneath the hops, while malt is negligible.

Taste & mouthfeel: The palate offers a mouthwatering mix of pineapple, stone fruit and grapefruit with a touch of herbal bitterness and pine. Impressively light bodied and dry, this is quite good. Alcohol is not hidden as well as I'd like it to be, but at nearly 10% ABV I guess I can't complain much. Malt is barely present beneath the hops, bringing little more than a bready foundation.

Overall: Pretty damn good on the whole, but I'm not sure I like it as much as Odell's regular IPA.

On-tap at the Front Door in Boise, ID.

This beer appears a clear golden orange hue, with one finger of soapy white head, which leaves some butte-esque lace around the glass as it recedes. It smells of creamy caramel, and bitter pine/citrus rind hops. The taste is more bitter orange/pine hops, some toffee malt, and a bit of soft booze. The carbonation is on the light side, the body a solid medium weight, smooth, and somewhat creamy. It finishes with a soft floral, herbal, forest floor hoppiness.

A nice, even DIPA, the booze well integrated, and thus easy enough to sip away whilst demolishing a nice pizza pie.

Into a tulip it pours a hazed golden orange, with a finger of white foam on top. Immediately it begins to lace as the foam settles. Swirling cirrus skim across the top, with clusters of larger bubbles clinging around the edges. Delicate lace sticks to the glass and lasts until the glass is drained.

Huge tropical aroma, pineapple, sweet orange, peaches. A musky, catty component lends pungent force that overwhelms at first. Wee hint of alcohol as it warms, characteristic for a DIPA.

Fruit forward flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel, and grapefruit. Tropical citrus melange that's pretty intoxicating at first. Soft mellow feel, dense with hops and malt alike. Bitter grapefruit aftertaste, hop forward and brash as a DIPA should be. Mellow feel, smooth with sweet hints of lightly bready malt and residual tropical fruit hoppiness. Medium to low bitterness, the light sweetness nearly overtakes the bitter element, but in the end it's pretty evenly matched.

Almost as good as Double Ninja, almost. Pretty awesome in it's own right however. When judged objectively on it's own merits and not against other beers, it stands out as unique.

A - Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, of-white head of bubbly foam. Okay retention and some sticky patches of lace.

S - It smelled strongly of grapefruit and pine. There was a burnt toast malt aroma, too.

T - It had a sweet caramel flavor with delicious grapefruit, citrus and pine hop bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a clean, dry finish.

O - This is a really good DIPA. Odell is on a hot streak of cranking out new great beers.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off white head. Decent retention and some lacing.

Smell: The smell on this one is really mild. Citrus peel hops along with some sweet malt. Perhaps some faint citrus fruit notes.

Taste: What it was lacking in smell, it makes up for with taste. Sweet citrus peel hops along with some pine notes. Malt sweetness balance it out well. The finish is bitter and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: I'm not sure why the smell was so mild. It smells good, but not enough. Overall I enjoyed this beer thoroughly and would have another.

Poured a very nice hazy and murky golden amber color with a very nice two inch plus head of foamy lace and a decent amount of suspended particles. The head faded slowly leaving behind copious amounts of side glass lace.

The smell was overloaded with floral citrus hops that just exploded with aromas of tangerine and orange with the slightest touch of pine thrown in. The flavor was so remarkably smooth and fresh; it was in a word wonderful. A full on floral hop assault that just did not let up. Great stickiness and dryness to the fell and a taste that was very bright and full of orange and pineapple flavors with the right amount of sugar thrown in for good measure. This was just great, a really nice hopheads IPA and a very smooth brew indeed. I almost found this one to be sessionable, but the ABV will steer you away from that, even though you could not pick up the slightest touch of it in there.

Overall this was a really fine beer for sure. I enjoyed every last sip of this sticky resin filled taste. I would have to highly recommend this one to anyone out there that really loves the hops, this will not disappoint.

Thanks to Mike for sending this one my way.

A: The beer pours a golden color with a finger or two of white head.

S: Citrus hops with a mild grassiness to it. A little bit of bready and pale malts along with a little bit of fruit. There is also a light pine note to the aroma.

T: A really nice fruitiness to the flavor. Plenty of citrus, particularly grapefruit and tangerine. Mild grass notes and a decent amount of pine, a moderate bitterness to go with it. Some decent bread flavors round out the beer.

M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation.

O: Pretty solid IPA. Nice hoppiness and not really sweet at all.

Thanks to a great trade from mattkooler.

Pours a very light fizzy head over crystal clear straw pilsner color.

Nose adds lots of fresh hops, some fresh oily hop resins with some musty hop aroma, some pine, a bit of citrus, light tropical fruit, a nice character of earthy chewy hops with that, and a nice malt to anchor it.

Taste starts with fresh hop flavors, a bit fruity and juicy hops, then comes a bit of the tropical fruits and citrus hops which are not heavy but enough to detect, then more of the earthy hops which also get a bit chewy, and finally finishing the hop character with a bit of the piney resinous oily fresh hops but not a lot. None of the hop characteristics are very dominant, but there are plenty of layers that add to the complexity. A nice malty backbone help to keep the beer together, with a little sweetness and a little booze. Towards the end a slight piney juniper like hop character, with a bit of mint come through, bringing it to the still sweet finishes. It started fairly bitter and gets even more bitter on the finish, adding more earthy and chewy hops and much less of the other hop characters. The finish is a bit sticky as well with just a hint of booze and malt lingering.

Mouth is a bit heavier bodied, decent carbonation, and hint of booze, and pretty sticky.

Overall a good DIPA, nice malty backbone, layers upon layers of hop complexity with a nice earthy chewy hop backbone and malt base. A bit a booze, and heavy bitterness (esp on the finish), and sticky finish make it tough to drink, but tasty, anything more than a 12oz would be very hard to finish.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. I enjoyed this one back in mid-June.

Pours a clear golden copper, topped with 2 thick fingers of bright-white head. This retains with a robust foamy finger that holds tight and leaves back a TON of soapy lacing, which coats the sides of the glass in a sticky latticework of lacing. The aroma smells floral and VERY herbal, with a sharp grapefruit presence that is tempered on the edges by notes of ripe fruit character and sweet grains. Some spicy fusel alcohol just hangs on the edges of the nose, lending this some power in the nostrils.

I was still pleased to find that the taste is still bright with bitter grapefruit and citrus peel, which are balanced by notes of tropical fruit and a lightly toasted grainy sweetness. That herbal feel from the nose is present and pulls together in the finish, along with a pithy bitterness and lingering notes of dry pine and spice. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied, with a smooth creaminess that glides along easily, yet lays down enough of a prickle to still give this some assertiveness in the mouth. The beefy warmth from that high ABV is fairly well contained here yet does add a warm spicy boldness to this that intensifies the hop profile.

Wow, if this is how good this beer is with several months on it, I shudder to think how this would be fresh in the bottle, much less on draft! This was flavorful and bitter with hop flavors, yet was still nicely balanced and approachable. This was definitely one of the better high alcohol DIPAs that I’ve had lately and did I mention that this was already several months old?! This one’s a sleeper for sure but I seriously doubt that it will be next winter when it’s rereleased.

Full and rich flavor with the malt and hops duking it out. A great event to partake of. Certainly one of the more drinkable big IPAs. A bright flavor that is just plain flowery with a modest bitterness. Great hop aromas. The rich and sweet maltiness mellows the abundance of hops and balances the bitter tang. So strong that it has a sharp flavor just from the alcohol, but the complexity is sensational.

A little chill haze poured from the 12 oz bottle. Lovely light amber rather than the usual DIPA orange cast. Man, what an aroma with every sip!

Tasted earlier in 2011 and I liked it a lot. This bottle is dated 9/1/11. I guess this puts me over 2000 on the BA scale, and thanks for all the fun tasting and reviewing.

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.

Poured from an inch or so above the glass gives this beer a big off white head that quickly dies down to a pretty decent lacing above a clear rich prairie honey colored beer.

A full aroma of citrus hops, with a slight floral aspect, with a tad of country grasses.

The citrus hops controls the hopsy taste of this IPA with a little dry bitterness to it.

A nice hops dry aftertaste with some quiet bitterness on a medium body.

First had: on tap at Mayor of Old Town, Ft. Collins, CO

Poured a clear orange-golden with a small white head, that retained well nonetheless, and left some really crusty lacing. Scents of citrus and pine for the most part. Big hop kick on the tongue right off the bat, citrusy, resin, with a bit of malty sweetness coming in to mellow things out. Alcohol was moderately apparent. Medium-bodied, left a bit of film in the mouth, but still quite drinkable. Not as good as their regular IPA, I'd say.

Pours honey colored with a pinky of cream colored head. A bit of viscosity to this, very good head retention & above average lacing

S: Orange rind & grapefruit & pineapple

T: Pineapples, lemons, grapefruit &a touch breadyness & honey & a wisp of booze. I will just state up front this reminds of Hopslam in many aspects. I also get some dryness. Pineapple, honey, a bit of leafy & herbal hops. Pineapple/honey sweet finish with grapefruit providing a great compliment, some dryness & leafy hops too

MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, superior balance, warming

Odell, you have hit a home run! Keep this on as a seasonal or year rounder if feasible. I'm wishing I had bought more than a 4 pack of this. This was great on draft as well

From 06/10/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross. 12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip, right after trying a fresh Odell IPA.

a - Pours a somewhat hazy, bright amber color with one in of off white head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Looks good.

s - Smells of citra hops, fruity malts, lemon, oranges, grapefruit, light pine and resin, and light floral hops. Loads of citra which I love.

t - Tastes of citra hops, oranges, tropical fruitsm mangos, pineapples, lemon zest, fruity malts, pine hops, resin, floral notes, and grapefruit. Even better than the nose; the citrus from there but with tropical notes to it. Awesome.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. No bitterness, smooth and easy to drink. Very nice mouthfeel.

o - Overall I liked this one a lot, and liked it a ton better than the normal Odell IPA. If I could buy 4/6ers of this regularly I definitely would. Lots of citrus and tropical notes with no bitterness, highly recommended.

Odell The Myrcenary

"Named for Myrcene, a component of the essential oils in the hop flower, Myrcenary Double IPA is our tribute to those who revere the illustrious hop, and their unyielding exploit to craft hop forward beers. Brewed with a blend of hops containing the highest levels of Myrcene, this double IPA prevails with a tropical fruit-like flavor, a pungent floral aroma, and a clean getaway."

Clear, golden-hued, under a beautiful, cloudish cap of snowy white foam, lace-leaving and long-lasting.An excellent appearance for a double IPA.

Aroma: prickly pine, citrus and tropical fruit, slightly honeyish. Pungent and floral, indeed. Excellent aromatics.

Tasting it: Easy entry on the palate, with hops bitterness quickly catching up and taking over the tongue. Tickles and prickles, sends tendrils of sensations up, down, and out of the mouth. Tiniest spark of sweetness, barely perceptible, flanked at all sides by tasty, tasty blasts of hoppitude.

Oily is right, this one has all the essentials, in good supply. Medium bodied, long, bitter finish, and utterly delightful for a hophead like me. Yeah, these guys know how to do it, and they do it, how they do it. Mmm, mmm, mmm.
Just perfect.
