Named for Myrcene, a component of 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.

4.19/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Light amber clear color with a one inch head that leaves spotted lace all over the glass.
Smell- Almost a fruitiness with grapefruit light mint note with a little spice. Malt character comes through with light caramel and cracker.
Taste- Sweetness comes first from the malt a light caramel note then the grapefruit rind with some fruity orange sweetness from the alcohol with a light warmth. Almost a taste on the tongue like I ate Fruity Pebbles earlier. Definitely not super fruity, well in balance. Dry cracker malt finishes this beer with some lingering hops. (563 characters)

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! (301 characters)

A: Deep gold to light copper in color, thin layer of head, some miniscule sediment visible in the beer 4.25, S: Smells strongly of peach and strawberries, some honeysuckle and melon and maybe a hint of wet grass, very pleasing and refreshing nose that maybe doesn’t overpower but certainly provides some complexity – 4.25, T: Honey like sweetness, strong hop bite to the point of almost being tannic, grapefruit and orange zest as well as some pineapple – 4.25, M: Drying alcohol provides slight grit, quite a bit of body and viscosity – 4.50, D: Extremely drinkable especially considering that it is a double IPA, alcohol is masked very well all around a very nice beer – 4.50 (687 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A a little cloudy. Pretty standard golden yellow color for the style. not much lacing

S malt followed by some pine and a bit of nutiness and a touch of citrus

T malt and pine with some earthy notes and again a touch of citrus, however that faded as it warmed. I can taste the alcohol a bit on this one and i can definitely feel it. The malt presence increased as it warmed which wasn't necessarily bad.

M low carbonation. Wouldn't describe it as crisp. A pretty typical dipa

O a really nice beer and a nice example of the style i would happily drink again although i would serve it a little colder next time. (612 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Myrcenary pours a honey color with a solid 2 finger white foam head. Head retention was excellent as was lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and sweet malts. Flavor best can described as juicy with tropical fruit and sweet malt backbone balanced by grapefruit bitterness that turns a bit floral/herbal. For such a high ABV, the alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel that finishes slightly dry. Very drinkable (for such a high ABV) and extremely tasty. Overall, a very well balanced and crafted Double IPA. Highly recommended. (542 characters)

3.77/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Orange amber hue,slightly cloudy,3 finger soapy white head,respectable lacing in the glass.

Sweet malt and slight hop presence in the aroma.

Malty flavor, sweet like monkey bread, piney hops in the background.Taste reflects aroma, quite the malt presence with some floral/citrus hops low lying in the mix, light bitterness.

Mouthfeel is syrupy and medium thereabout. The sweet malt overshadows the bitterness of the hops hands down.Nothing special here.

As an extra, the expectations were low, and it did not disappoint in that regard.Not getting the huge ratings on this relatively pedestrian IIPA: world class? really?! Overall,one big MEH! (646 characters)

2.91/5  rDev -31.7%
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This one, aptly named as explained on the label, is a clear brilliantly bright gold. This beer seriously shines like a gold bar. A tightly constructed but sizable clean white head drops slowly and clings to the sides of the glass in pretty heavy leggy and webby patches.
The aroma is bright and clean with a nice potency. Piney but with lots of grapefuit on the end of each sniff, I also get some tropical fruits balancing with just a hint of something minty and some floral leafiness. There's just enough malt to balance the bitterness.
This is a deliciously hoppy beer with balance, depth, and great complexity. The beginning of each sip is juicy before going into the leafy, minty middle, then more grapefruit and a rind-like zest, then even more juiciness into a well-developed finish. It never goes too chalky, dry or pithy, having lots of bitterness without overwhelming the palate. Just enough biscuity malt evens it all out. Alcohol is really well hidden, and this beer just seems so easy to drink. It's hard to believe it's almost 10%.
Crispness stays through every sip, but it's so creamy asmooth it'slike my tongue is coated with velvet every time I take another. It goes drier into the finish even as more sweetness comes in to ease the transition. The body is medium, carbonation at moderate levels.
I'm very glad I managed a trade for a chance to try this beauty, and happy that I have another bottle to enjoy. (1,425 characters)

4.28/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Best by date for late september 2013

The beer pours a cloudy golden amber with a fluffy off-white head that laces down the glass into a thin halo around the perimeter. The nose is passionfruity/slightly floral/white grapey and has a hint of candy sweetness. The taste is quite distinct and unique; surging sugary sweetness and a very interesting tropical fruit hop profile make this similar to drinking a slightly muted dreadnaught. The mouthfeel is medium-full and potently sweet bodied with creamy effervescence, masked alcohol, and has a modestly bitter (yet incredibly hoppy) finish. This is a delicious 4-pack, especially considering the price, and I hope to try it fresher in the future. (694 characters)

A: golden color, full 2 finger head that persists for a decent amount of time before lacing away

S: malt, some cirtrus and pine notes, but less hop forward than I was expecting very sweet for an IPA... in a good way

T: pleasant balance of biscutty malts and hops, aftertaste even maintains that balance, alcohol comes through a little.

M: fairly thick, oily, medium carbonation

O: Nice, very smooth DIPA, good balance (421 characters)

3.2/5  rDev -24.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

I forgot who sent me this one, my apologies, but big thanks to whomever it was. Myrcenary pours a golden-yellow color with some vibrant, tangerine-orange hints at the edges. Mild clarity with only a touch of haze in the middle. The foamy white head settles quickly and surprisingly leaves only a little bit of lacing on the glass.

The hop character is pretty overwhelming with the first whiff; it's incredibly pungent and oily and sticky with a mild floral character and some lighter citrus in the background. The abundance of hops seems matched largely with a huge malt character. It smells sweet, pungent, bitter, malty, and heavy all at once. Almost reminiscent of Deviant Dale's, a beer that I was unfortunately not a fan of.

I take a sip and I'm met with pungent, dank, and lightly piney hops up front. Jesus Christ, this stuff is huge. Sticky, heavy, and resinous as hell. Resinous and dank to an unnecessary degree, really. I'm not getting the "tropical fruit-like flavor" as described on the bottle itself, unless I count the mild citrus and orange peel that I'm getting in the finish.

Myrcenary is quite bitter, though the malts are pounding with incredible sticky sweetness, too. Pushing the caramel line but erring more so on the side of toasted bread, the malts are a bit too sweet for an IPA of any kind. This beer coats your entire mouth and palate, and you can feel it long after you swallow it. Sticky, resinous, thick, abrasive, pungent, dank, you name it.

Actually kind of surprised the rating is so high for this. I had a reasonably fresh bottle, so it wasn't old or anything. Perhaps I'm not that partial to the dank and resinous bomb. I enjoy those flavors, sure, but not quite in this capacity. And the malt, being so sweet, does more overwhelming harm than balancing good. Not an awful beer, but merely average at best. I don't want my DIPAs to be this slow of sippers. (1,896 characters)

4.77/5  rDev +12%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Hazy golden yellow with just the slightest bit of orange hue, and a small white head that sticks around. Leaves a good lacing.

Nice citrusy and floral hop aroma, with just a tad of pine and a small bready malt base if I try hard. Very hop forward, which is something I love in IPA's, especially doubles.

Complex hop combo that is much more about the flavor and aroma than bitterness. Plenty of the citrusy, fruity, floral and piney hops all meshing together perfectly in a super hop forward but not a crazy smack in the face way. Getting the bready, cracker malts which blends really nicely too.

Moderate body and carbonation with a very creamy smooth overall feel. Not heavy despite the size. Very nice.

Very nice DIPA - way more mellow than I expected from the aroma, but totally works. You'd never guess this was such a huge beer, considering how smooth and easy drinking it is, but you know it's a DIPA because of the complex hop explosion. Highly recommended. (972 characters)

4.73/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Poured a clear golden orange with a fluffy white head, very fine bubbles and a sticky lace.

Smell: There's a strong hop presence, but the bitterness of the scent is being battled by something very sweet - this is probably due to the Myrcene from the hops. It's a civil war between hops and sweet fruits.

Taste: The beginning tickles the tongue until the back of the throat is kicked with sweet fruits and floral tastes; the middle rolls the flavor back onto the tongue with a sharp but gentle bitterness; the end lingers into a calm bitterness and tasteful remembrance of the aroma.

Mouthfeel: The beginning kicks on with seem heat. The carbonation is a tad strong, but it is still a smooth guzzle, semi-thick - medium bodied.

Overall: My friend and I like to call this the 'Urban Elephant' - referring to Odell's (wonderful) IPA. Overall, Odell did very well with this DIPA. It's a nice change - like moving from the country to the city (or vice versa.) There's a raw power in its hop content. (1,013 characters)

12 oz. bottle poured into a teku.

A: Burnt copper orange with a hazy, cloudy appearance. Three finger head with medium lacing.

S: Lemon rind, pine needles, white tea leaves, sweet malts.

T: Burnt lemons, orange juice, pinesol (in a good way), dried citrus fruits, fucking mother fucking delicious.

M: Medium carbonation with a lingering hoppy sweetness. Mouthfeel is slightly thicker than a normal DIPA.

O: This is fucking amazing, and I'd buy it all the time if it were readily available to be, but alas, I randomly found this one in a bar in Florence, Italy...would definitely even consider trading for this one! This is phenomenal. (640 characters)

Poured on tap into a tulip.

A - Amazing clear golden orange with 2 fingers of white bubbly head.

S - Very tropical and fruity. Massive orange notes with pineapple and grapefruit. Nice hop character in the nose.

T - Huge hop blast with similar qualities of the smell coming through. Lots of orange and tangerine. I read from somewhere that this like the Sunny D of IPAs and I can definitely confirm that! Amazing balance with not a lot of bitterness in the finish.

M - Smooth, but a little too malt forward for my liking. Doesn't subtract much for the enjoy-ability of the beer though.

O - An amazing feat of a beer by Odell. My current favorite of their offerings and one of the best IPA experiences I've had. So glad to have this year round and available near me. (769 characters)

2.91/5  rDev -31.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 33 cl snifter. Best by date 6.12.13.

Look- Pale amber with two and a half fingers of dense white suds that fall slowly to a tight cap, light haze. Ropes of sticky lace adorn the glass as it empties.

Smell- Sweet, mucho pineapple. Not much else makes it through; swirling brings out lemon candy and honeydew melon. Very, very sweet, but not entirely off-putting with the fruit accompaniment.

Taste- Much like the aroma, very sweet and hop-driven. Light treacle and pineapple, starfruit. Moderate bitterness on the back end with a touch of booze- rather than playing nicely the bitterness accentuates the booze and gives the overall impression/aftertaste of gin.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full, moderate to high carbonation. Chewy. Fairly boozy, warming and some harshness after the swallow.

Overall- Pretty middling for a DIPA; nothing I've not seen before and borderline overhopped, too boozy for my liking. If you're of the "More hops! Higher ABV!" mindset, you'll probably like this, but I'm not really a fan. (1,037 characters)

4.46/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Very attractive bottle and label with cool graphics and font with a flat old school look. Label gives a bit of brewery info, a nice back story of the beer, web info, ABV info, Best by date(6/25/13), and the Odell logo, which I believe is an Aspen leaf. Nice label.

Appearance: I allowed this to warm for 10min before pouring from its 12oz bottle into a 16oz snifter. Myrcenanry pours out a slightly hazy bright golden amber honey color with a solid 2 finger white foam head that is airy but still densely packed. Head retention was 4min 37sec before fading to a thick frothy coating and ring. Excellent lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of an herbal mint like sweet grapefruit with just the slightest hints of alcohol and sweet malts.

Flavor/Taste: Taste can only be described as juicy with a tropical sweet grapefruit bitterness that turns a bit herbal with a malt sweetness to balance out the bitterness. Finishes bitter with a bitter slightly medicinal aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the full side of medium bodied with a chewy creamy mouthfeel that finishes dry. Extremely drinkable and tasty.

Overall/Comments: This came highly recommended and it lived up to it's hype!!! An excellent very well put together and well balanced DIPA that was more tropical than any I have ever experienced!! I really enjoyed this!! Highly recommended!! Classified as an American Double/Imperial IPA @ 9.3% ABV. Consumed 4/15/2013. (1,479 characters)

T- tropical fruit, like passionfruit, very interesting fruity and citrus. Dry malty backbone. There is a slight hot finish, but for being 9.whatever the ABV is I can't tell it has as much alcohol as it does

M- very thick without being cloying, very nice (442 characters)

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy copper with a thick foamy off white head. Nice webby lines of lacing.

Aroma: Perfect balance of caramel malt sweetness and bitter citrus hops.

Taste: Rich and malty up front, a nice pure caramel touch. Then gets bitter right away with piny hops and grapefruit rind bitterness. Well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, a tad sticky.

Overall: The balance is key here, and everything else falls into place nicely. (461 characters)

This beer was fantastic. Orange glow sticky head. Pineapple bomb on the nose. A little sticky mouthfeel but nice and full. Flavo ris a giant pinepapple bomb as well with lots of other tropical fruit flavors. Malt leaves a nice sticky sweetness in the mouth. Bitterness is absent, purely balance, and alcohol is non-existent. An excellent beer and wish I could get my hands on more of it. (387 characters)

Poured into a pub glass from a bottle labeled with a best by date of 11/19/13, so fresh!
Appearance - a cloudy, sunset orange with a foamy, white head that sticks around until the end; lacing sheets the back side of the glass.
Smell - sweet mango, a hint of grapefruit, some pepper, grass, pine!
Taste - smooth, bitter, sweet and surprisingly easy drinking at 9.3%! Just a hint of warming alcohol.
Feel - best part of this beer! Mellow; oily hop bitterness, sweet malts; medium body but can hold it's own in just about any fight...this one will stand up to very tangy, and very spicy BBQ, which makes an excellent pair!
Overall- An excellent beer! I'd rather go with the standard IPA that Odell puts out, especially for the price of the two, but if you're looking for a beer to impress friends or family (who enjoy craft beer) at a BBQ, here you go! (850 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Let me start by saying, I really really really wish Odell distro'ed in WI.

Pours clear amber with about 2 fingers of frootthhhyy khaki head. The foam just sits there. It's very sticky and very inviting. Exceptional looking IIPA.

Smells honey and caramel sweet. Bright citrus hops abound (mostly tangerine and a bit of mango). Very clean and big nose. Some floral hops on the backend, but citrus sweetness overwhelms the scent.

How drinkable can a 9.3% IIPA be? The answer is THIS. This beer is so sweet, and citrusy, and rounded. The taste is very deliberate and well-exicuted. There is some resin on the finish, but it's highly enjoyable. I'm getting mostly the meat of the orange in the flavor. It's a juicy beer.

Mouthfeel is medium with medium-low carb. I like the feel a lot, but it's a tad syrupy for my taste. I was hoping for a crisp resiny finish. Regardless, this is a small deduction.

This IIPA is fantastic. It dances with the big boys in almost every conceivable way. An excellent Odell-ian offering. (1,021 characters)

A- Poured on 4/22/13 from a 12 oz bottle with a best by date of 7/6/2013 into an IPA Spiegelau glass. Pours a hazy copper with a solid 1.5 finger white head. Suds have a fantastic hold on the glass. Good retention with a thin layer that sticks around the whole time.

S- Intense floral and citrus notes. Tropical fruits as the label indicates. Tangerine, grapefruit, melon, and lots of mango. Some nice flowery aroma. Hop oils and lemon grass also add to the nice hop profile. Just a slight amount of a malt base comes through

T- Big hop flavor as the nose indicates. Maybe not as intense as the smell, but nothing to complain about. Hop forward, resinous, juicy hops. Just enough bready backbone to give it some balance and mellow it out from the hop rush before the bitterness sets in again.

M- Really like the feel of this beer. Mid body, creamy and velvety. Nicely carbonated with a dry finish and alcohol that is well hidden at this abv.

O- Wonderfully done IPA that does a terrific job of paying tribute to the hop complexity. Not sure that the flavor of this brew stands head and shoulders above the rest of its style, but a delicious beer no doubt. (1,159 characters)

Served on tap in chalice at St. Paul Pizza Luce reviewed from notes.

A- Very pale orange with a thin white this ale is almost glowing in the glass.

S- Hops, hops, hops forward. Very floral and glorious on the nose.

T- Hop bomb and follows nose very nicely. Grapefruit bomb with huge hop sweetness but balanced nicely with a slightly dry finish.

M- Medium full bodied and lingering with hops yet not syrupy like Hopslam.

O- I am so glad this is still available on tap and possible to find. I much prefer the mouthfeel and finish on this ale over Hopslam as it is definitely comparable and preferable to the Bell's hop grenade. My girl friend said it best when she said, "It tastes purfumey."
