look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Chill hazed amber colored ale with a good sized yellowish white colored head.

Smells hoppy and malty with the scent of mostly cedar wood. There is a lesser scent of tobacco leaf to this.

Starts out mildly sweet with a distinct caramel flavor. Strong tea and cedar plank.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall really more malty than hoppy it is quite mild flavored for the style.

A very nice beer, an explosion of tropical fruits in both the aroma and taste. Lush pineapple aroma starts you off and continues into the taste coupled with mango and citrus- particularly lemon and tangerine. Very nicely balanced, and a different hop presentation than you usually get. Very well done!

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

Pours 1/2 finger of white head. Not very good retention. Leaves some splattered lace. Color is a clear gold.

Aroma: Mega hops. Huge floral and pine kick. Tropical citrus fruits. Some bready malts. Nice.

Taste: Wow, this stuff is hoppy. Huge pine and floral kick. Intense. Grapefruit and tropical fruits. Bready and biscuity malts.

Mouthfeel: Bitter and a bit creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends sticky and weedy.

Overall, a really solid dipa. I was really impressed with this one. Really drinkable. Probably the best I have had from Odell.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!

The beer is clear and yellow, with a quarter inch or so of white head. The aroma is really pleasant, with a nice bouquet of floral, hop, and subtle citrus notes. The taste is very nice, with an impressively dry, hoppy finish. Medium bodied, the beer sits nicely on the palate. Alcohol content is impressively well hidden. I'd certainly have this again.

Review from notes

A: Pours a clear amber/copper color with an off-white head, about one finger in height. The foam reduced to a thin layer on top rather quickly and left behind random bits of thin lacing.

S: Very piney with a little bit of citrus. There is some caramel and a bit of biscuity malt on the backend. A little bit of grass as well.

T: Extremely bitter when I first started drinking this one, almost too bitter. As the beer warms a bit, this bitterness subsides and the beer becomes a bit more drinkable. As it warms there is some more citrus and a bit of grass, but this beer is heavier in resiny pine.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and a bit oily. Medium carbonation. Finish is very bitter.

O: Not the most balanced DIPA, but as long as you know that going in or are a fan of beers like this, then it's fine. Not my favorite DIPA, but would drink it again.

Overall - An extremely good if maybe slightly unbalanced DIPA.... definitely recommended though...

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Bottle good till October 21st 2011. Off we go.

A slightly cloudy and hazy body of eighteen carat gold is presented with a solid almost perfect uniform even white head. Very slow rising carbonation hard to see through the haze, the beer appears to be moving if not stuck in slow motion. Some visible sickiness when drinking for the lacing.

Bouquet is an abundance of mushy fruit mostly tropical. Mushed bananas, guava, possibly some papaya, mango extremely thick, very impressive.

Taste is, thick double hopped at first but falls slowly into a light sugar tropical fruit sweetness. Absolutely fantastic texture just the perfect thickness without being too sweet. All the nose notes hit, mango, guava, even some green banana, leaving a very pleasant hop bitter.

Tropical fruits are usually not something I even enjoy, but I love them in good drink. This is a great example right here. Fantastic double IPA here.

Thanks to elrogish for shipping this out as part of our jacket/beer trade. Nice orange appearance, thin mild off white head, eventually disappears into nothingness. Big bad pineapple aroma (not big bad in the pejorative sense, big bad, like oh shit, this is a grip of pineapple coming at my nose!).

Taste, plenty of sweetness, decent hop mouthfeel, this one is just huge on the pineapple and its sticky and syrupy as well. Immediately I'm thinking that I should call everyone on the phone and be all like "dude, you like pineapple and barleywine right? You should age this beer for a year or two . . .

I dunno, I just don't see it being super satisfying for a major fresh hop head. The hops are there, but they impart so much sweetness to the beer, its a strong one, but never hot, probably in no small part because of the massive sweet quotient to the beer.

I liked it, but its not the kind of beer I would pop open to get me my vegetal hop fix.

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.

This is a really nice IPA x2. I've had it on tap before and the bottle didn't disappoint. I'll just throw in some new observations instead of stating the same stuff.

Seemed a bit darker pour than on tap, like a light orange a bit hazy. Aroma had more grapefruit and sweet bread. I thought the feel was 'thicker' and not as light as the tap version; and provided some syrupy-ness in the end feel. The hops don't disappoint at all, with more citrus than grass or pine. Grain bill is strong and provides substantial backbone.

12oz from the COOP... decent 1 finger white head... nice lacing and a flimsy cap atop a nice clear lite golden brew.

Nose sports a fair amount of floral hoppiness and some background tropical fruit hops.. smells pretty dry with only a dusting of pale malts.

Flavor mirrors the nose with a smooth bitterness that melts seamlessly into an abundant floral hop note... again a bit tropical too.. just enough malt to help bring the hops up out of the glass.. finish is long and lip smacking. Medium bodied with a lite yet everpresent small bubble carbonation that accentuates the oiliness of the hops.

Pretty nice... glad we are finally getting Odells into Boise.

Bottle shared by Mark – thanks!

Pours a slightly hazy light copper color with a one-finger cream-colored head. The head recedes into a patchy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of pale malts with huge amounts of bright citrus and heavier herbal hops. Also present are hints of good amounts of floral hops.

Tastes similar to how it smells, though not quite as nice. Slightly dry pale malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by huge citrus hops. Midway through the sip herbal and slightly leafy hops come into play, carrying through to a moderately bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It’s got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall this is certainly in the top tier of DIPAs, a very clean, crisp, and smooth beer for the style that doesn’t really have any flaws. Well worth a shot.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, and hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, alcohol, slight wood, and a hint of roasted malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, body, and blend. Another very good offering from Odell.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Ithaca glass. It poured a hazy amber color with a thick, frothy white head to it. Nice lacing as I drank it as well. Great looking beer

The aroma has a very juicy hoppiness to it. I get a lot of grapefruit to it with some sweeter notes of pineapple and mango. A little bit of the pale, bready malts peek through. Very appealing hoppiness to it.

The taste also shows a very juicy hoppiness to it. I get more of the bitter grapefruit coming through with some citrus rind like qualities to it in the finish. Like in the aroma, I get some sweeter tropical fruit like notes to it as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a really good hoppy beer. I loved the juiciness and the resiny bitterness it brought. Very flavorful and drinkable beer of the style.
