Re-Reviewing because I have a fresh bottle and I've recently gotten much more appreciation for this style.

Appearance: A golden liquid with great clarity and a thin off-white head that looks like it will leave nice lacing. Micro size effervescent bubbles slowly ascending. Real nice looking DIPA.

Aroma: A healthy mix of hops and malts. Pine and pineapple right away with lots of crystal malt. Some citrus but a mostly a mix of tropical and piney hops. Not as aromatic as I had hoped.

Taste: Starts with a light zap of bitterness on the tongue accompanied by pine and tangerine hop flavors. The crystal and caramel malts are not far behind and strike a near perfect balance in this heavily hopped brew. The hops that are implemented are not specified on Odell's website but I would venture a guess that Simcoe (pine) and Cascade (citrus/grapefruit) are on the list. Don't taste any of the 9.3% ABV besides a very slight heat in the back of the throat. It's listed as 70 IBUs which is a walk in the park for most hop heads. Perhaps because of the hop/malt balance the bitterness is not as extreme as a typical DIPA. Finish is dry with lingering pine and hints of tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel: Just a tad above medium which is on the lighter side for something this potent but makes it all the more drinkable. Smooth carbonation and a great drinking experience.

Final Thoughts: I'm glad I took the time to re-review this one so as to really enjoy the flavors. If you are in search of a superbly balanced DIPA then look no further. I'm shocked this beer doesn't get more hype, maybe because it's available year round at a steal ($10/4-pack). Would I drink it again? You betcha, three left in the fridge that will be calling my name all week.

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.
