12oz bottle, fridge temp, poured into a snifter, best before 4/6/12.

pours a nice looking deep golden/ orange color with a slight haze. nice one fingers worth of head that settles to a thin retentive layer with great lacing, covering 75% of the glass.

dank hops, mostly floral and vegetal aromas, tropical fruits with citrus and pine behind that. sticky caramel malt just noticable through all the hops.

juicy citrus, tropical fruits, then some vegetal hops followled by a slightly muddled yeast bite or maybe just a really floral/ vegetal hop?, as the beer warms up this becomes more and more noticable. some sticky caramel malts and some slight heat from the alcohol.

resinous feel on the palate, good amount of lingering bitterness. medium to heavy bodied.

overall, this started out really good, but then took a bad turn. still a decent offering, but with so many great easily attainable DIPAs out there, i wouldnt seek this out again.

1 month old bottle of beer, from the beer cooler at the beer store, poured into a beer glass.

Clear light gold, no sediment. Appropriate carbonation, white head.

Dank, salty smells, but onion/garlic too. Not like GUBNA, but still obvious. (I don't know if they use summit hops or not). Some floral notes, pine more than citrus, but it's in the background.

vegetal, oniony on the taste. The pine/citrus is beaten down some, not up front. Alcohol obvious, not painfully so, but more than I'd like it. Turn this down to 8% abv and it'd be better. Appropriately bitter, but the oniony vibe takes it slightly into the astringent category.

Mouthfeel as expected, some clashing aspects from the flavors on the aftertaste.

I actually liked this more than it sounds, but it's not top tier. A decent hoppy beer with some odd flavors. Not a favorite, but drinkable on occasion.

12 oz bottle pours a hazed gold color with a creamy white head. Nice retention and sticky lace.

Nose is juicy and very tropical. Tons of fruity hop aromas and the malt is very crackery and light.

Taste is bright and the hops are very interesting...total opposite of piney and resinous hop flavors. These are tropical, bubblegummy almost. Lots of alcohol and the malts give off a sweet vibe, but are very light and really just get out of the way and let the hops do their thing. Pretty good, I like it.

12 oz. bottle. 3/2/12B stamped on the label. Best by date? Nice packaging!

Slightly hazy medium copper with deep yellow edges. Solid half inch of thick, implacable, light beige head. Excellent lacing. Very citrusy nose. Lots of mandarin orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Pineapple is also pretty prominent. Sugary malt mixed with the orange hop aroma creates an orange dreamsicle effect, which is nice.

Citrus fruit hops up front. Juicy, bitter, and tasty. Orange marmalade, pineapple, and lemon make their mark, before the complex hop profile reveals some resinous, weedy, and even piny notes. Sugary fruit and cookie dough malt makes an appearance, but definitely takes a backseat to the hops. Medium-full body, with an almost oily feel. Tasty!

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 a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by date of 1/24/12 on front label. It was a mostly clear, orange amber color with good carb streams. It had a good sized head that settled into a good collar and covering film. Good lacing with some sticking.

The aroma was excellent with tropical fruit and citrus leading the way with some pine and pale malt just behind it. Good sniffer. The taste was also excellent with the citrus from the start with the pine starting a little after it. Good balance with the malt. The mouthfeel was full with good carb levels and good aftertaste. Goes down really smooth for 9.3% ABV so beware.

Overall, an excellent ADIPA and one of my favorites from Odell. Really wish they'd distribute here in TX. Used to get from a buddy in Denver but he moved so haven't had any in awhile. Picked up this 6 pack in Joplin, Mo while driving back from Indy. Highly recommend! Rotation - would be in heavy hop rotation if avail near me [H;Y]

Thanks to buffs9 for this bottle.

A: Pours a transparent deep golden honey color with about one finger of pure white head. There is a bit of lacing left on the glass as it drinks.

S: I'm picking up tropical fruits, grapefruit, some spice, some alcohol, and a nice malt backbone. This beer smells very nice, minus the alcohol presence.

T: The taste is just like it smells. It's well balanced, but the booze is a little off putting for me.

M: Medium bodied beer. Nothing too special.

O: I really wish this beer would hide the booze a bit better. I'm not overly impressed with this brew.

Had this on 2011-12-29 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy amber-orange with a 2.5 finger white head into a Duvel glass. Nice ringed lacing. It's a little darker orange than the Odell IPA

S - Interesting mix of citrus flesh, stone fruit, bread and ripe plantain. I like the smell of the Odell IPA more than this. This has a pleasant but not strong aroma.

T - Punch of tart citrus, rich white bread, mint, orange juice and grapefruit rind. Long lasting touch of sweetness and lingering bitterness. I like the initial flavor of their IPA more than this but I like the end and aftertaste of this one more. This has a great bright and bitter citrus finish. Toss-up rating-wise.

M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Thick, creamy, resinous and nicely prickly.

O - Very fine. It was interesting to compare it side-by-side to the Odell IPA and a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (as a benchmark). I liked this one the best. I rate it just a shade below my favorite DIPAs but would love to have a glass of this anytime, anywhere.
