A - A big pour revealed about two fingers of a light yellow head. Body is very cloudy and a super nice wheat/orange color. Tons of lacing.

S - It's just so smooth on the nose. Wonderfully balanced sweet with bitter hops. Pine, grapefruit, and earth. Pretty simple.

T - Starts with candied oranges and only slight pine. The smooth hops comes on in the middle and finishes with a slight bitterness.

M - Very full. Nice carbonation and overall feel. Just a little pucker in the back of the mouth.

O - There's not much to it, but they do that well. I can easily drink a six-pack of this.

Thanks to jfstilling for the great extra.

Myrcenary pours a golden orange with a decent half-inch head which quickly dissipates.

Smell of pineapple, graham cracker, and sweet citrus on the nose.

Pineapple carries over into the initial taste. A sweet malt helps balance out the hops. This beer tastes eerily similar to New Glarus' Thumbprint Barleywine.

Overall, a very solid and well balanced DIPA. I'm really glad I got to give this a try!

Update as of 11-22-13

Traveled out to CO and had this beer on tap at Lucky Pie. Even better than I remembered, truly world class. Bumped up the taste from a 4 to a 4.25.

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.

A. Nice appearance. Golden iced-tea look. Thick head that lasts for minutes. 

S.  Grapefruit and orange scents with a nice hop undertone. 

T. Taste is a perfect fit with the smell.  The citrus and hops are mixed well. It's not too sweet. The aftertaste is also smooth; it doesn't offer the bite you might expect from a double IPA. Not sure that is good or bad, it's just atypically smooth for this type of brew.  Hard to pull off this level of complexity with so much hops. 

M. Good carbonation. Not too thin. Medium weight on the tongue. 

O. Overall, this is an exceptional beer. I think it is most similar to America IPAs than to typical doubles. Top shelf brew.
