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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
