4.47/5  rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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

4.1/5  rDev -4.7%
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing. Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - A quick-dissolving finger of white foam settles to a thin collar, leaving behind tiny spots of lace. Transparent pale golden body.

S - Big tropical fruit hop aroma - I'm guessing Simcoe? There's also a faint note of cat pee, as well as a hefty brown sugar malt backbone. Perhaps a touch of alcohol as well.

T - Taste is actually a little bit dull. There's a bit of grapefruit zest mid-palate, but things mellow out after that burst of flavor. Definitely less sweet than the aroma, with more floral and pine hop flavors. Strange that it doesn't correlate with the aroma very much.

M -Zesty carbonation, surprisingly light in body for the alcohol content. Perhaps a bit watery, although it thankfully ends quite dry. Alcohol is present in the finish.

D - As a year-round DIPA it's a solid offering. Reminds me a bit of Dogfish 90 Minute, but not as good. I'm sure freshness plays a big part in this beer's appeal, so make sure you know the bottle dates before trading for this one. Not overly difficult to drink, but there are far superior DIPAs in my own market - now if only Dreadnaught came in 4-packs...

4.43/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

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

Thanks Thorpe.

Beer is yellow with a nice white head that leaves some lacing on the glass, retention isn't great as it appears to be on the lighter side of carbonation.

Aroma is quite floral and mildly earthy. Some citrus hops in there, seems like a little bit of an aged aroma.

Beer is medium in body, mildly sweet on the front with a nice grinding earthiness to the body that fills out on the end. Good finish with strong bitterness, overall a decent IPA. I'd like to try it on draft sometime.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a hint of rubber as well as some tropical fruit, bread and extremely resinous pine. The flavor is very dank and resinous, with some bread and a little bit of grass. The beer is very dry overall. Medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.

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.

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

Sampled at 1702, Tucson; August 2011
The beer arrives from the tap with a frothy, pale tan tinged head that leaves quite a bit of lacing on the sides of my glass as I work my way through this beer. The beer is a copper-amber hue that shows a brilliantly clear, rich gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells richly laden with hop tropical fruit notes; lychee, ripe tangelo, bright floral apricot and sticky, slightly dank grapefruit zest are backed by softer, but still present, more herbal notes of pine and pepper hemp that is really a sort of dank herbaceous, slightly green character that helps to temper the more prominent hop fruit notes. If you really dig, after the beer warms up a bit, a touch of cracker like malt character becomes noticeable in the finish of the aroma. The aroma of this is just so enjoyable and hoppy, I can’t get enough.

The taste has enough sweetness to carry the ample hop fruitiness found up front through to the finish. It is tempered in the finish by a pine like and dank herbaceous quality as well as a biting, though not overpowering bitterness and a green, hop astringency; this last speaks to ample hops and likely dry hops used in the making of this beer. The finish hop notes also contribute a distinct, woody peppery note to the flavor. The dominant fruit character tastes of lychee, apricot, huge flower-nectar like notes as well as a mélange of fruity citrus-zest notes. As the beer warms up the bitterness becomes a bit more present, and it is accentuated a bit by a hint of warm alcohol that is just perceptible. This is very quaffable, well at least for a hophead, especially considering that this is 9% abv (I never would have guessed how strong this was). The malt character plays purely a supporting role here

This was certainly a nice treat for my tastebuds after the two other duds that I just had. I really like the juicy, hop fruitiness that is in this beer and it is made even better that this is supported by an almost rough, raw, herbaceous hop character. I wasn’t expecting this to be nearly so good, but damn am I enjoying this beer.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

12 ounce bottle, 9/9/11 on the lower left of the label (best before dating?). Pours lighter amber, near clear, off white head, goes to a tiny bubble film and leaves respectable scatered lacing.

Tropical fruit hopped up, pungent and enticing.

Nose carries through onto the palate (suprise), waves of fresh tasting hops, tropical fruits, resins, sweet pinapple, hop lovers delight. Savored every sip of this one, very tasty and well crafted DIPA. How I wish this was distributed to my area...it would be one of my go to brews

Draft at the Falling Rock Taphouse in Denver, CO.

Pours a clear golden orange cor with a two finger soapy white head.  Good retention slowly fading into a lasting ring.  Glass is coated with rings, chunks and streaks of soapy lacing.

Sweet citrus hop aroma with dry, resinous earthy pine notes.  Bursting with tropical fruit and citrus.  Lots of mango, papaya, grapefruit and orange peel.  Pale grainy malt with biscuit and graham cracker.  

Medium bodied but on the fuller end with a good balance of bitter dry earthy hops up front that are countered by sweet citrus/tropical fruit.   Lots of citrus fruit especially orange peel and grapefruit, mango, pinepalle and papaya.  Slight alcohol heat toward the finish.

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear golden orange color with 2 fingers worth of rich off-white head. It retains with solid powers that paint a full wall of webby lace on the glass.

The aroma is rindy and herbal with hops. The rindy aspect smells like grapefruit mixed with orange zest while the herbal aspects are weedy and almost cheese-like. As it warms up, there is a floral to fruity sweet aspect that emerges somewhat smelling like caramel malt to candy sweetness.

The taste is herbal with hops but boasts a rindy element almost like orange pulp. There is some toasty grain present which offers up some sweetness that accents the fruity aspects of the hops. A touch of alcohol warmth streams across the back of the tongue.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp, clean and easy drinking with a pleasant rounded character and alcohol presence felt without it hindering the experience. Not the best DIPA but worth checking out.
