look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Light golden Coors. Some white froth ala a sweeter, belgian style beer.

S: Really not that good. I get a significant amount of macro lager skunk piss on the end. Hops aren't very prominent either. Reminding me of a kolsch.

T: More hops for sure but still a little skunky must and still a bit like a kolsch. Definitely sweeter than the nose. Hops are neutral- neither piney or citrusy, only moderately floral.

M: Pleasant with adequate carbonation retained. The subtle sweetness works well.

O: Not my definition of an amazing, or even hit the spot refreshing, IPA. But atypical and better than average I suppose.

Glad to finally try this one! 12/22/11 is stamped on the side of the bottle. Not sure what it means because this bad boy smells fresh as hell.

Pours a slightly hazed golden straw color with a fingers worth of ivory colored head. Walls of white lacing clings.

The nose is very fresh and inviting. There is a nice fruit bouquet working here with notes of pineapple, mango, and guava. Maybe a little bit of citrus and pine as well. The ABV is noticed slightly after the hop assault.

The taste is hop forward for sure. The fruit is juicy and explosive as it lays on my palate. There is some pineapple and grassy notes intertwined nicely. There is a bit of sweet malt underneath the hops and is then met with a little bit of alcohol tastes.

The mouthfeel is light-medium with a juicy smooth feel. There is a crisp finish that ends dry.

Overall, this is a badass DIPA from one of the greatest beer states. The hops offer some really nice hop scents and flavors and is all around a great brew.

A 12oz bottle with a date of 19/5/11 (I assume this is the bottling date). As with all Odell beers, I love the label art.

Poured into a Duvel chalice. A hazy orange-amber hue with fine visible sediment and low carbonation. Produces a decent head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a surface layer. Huge aromatic hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit, citrus and pine, underpinned by sweet malt and a hint of yeast.

Tastes of overwhelming aromatic hops and sweet malt, followed by a dry, subtle bitter finish. Notes of tropical fruit and citrus, with hints of pine and yeast. Despite the high ABV, the booze goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is spicy, tingly and astringent. Aftertaste of fruity aromatic hops - yum!

In a word, excellent. Tons of fruity aromatic hops. I particularly like the restrained use of bittering hops - despite the intense aroma the bitterness is relatively mild. A top-notch brew; I'd love to have this again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a chilled Mrycenary pint glass.

A: Pours a orange, hazy color. A nice 2 finger foamy white head with lasting lacing that hugs the glass.

S: Strong hoppy smell overwhelms the nose. Huge tropical notes with a resiny backbone.

T: Perfect balance of hops and malt in this one.

M: The 9.3 ABV is well hidden in this one

O: 2 thumbs up for Odells on this one.

poured from the bottle into a pint glass

A - Nice golden orange with a very slight haze. 1 Finger of head that settles down and leaves behind very nice lacing that hangs well.

S - FLORAL HOPS! Right off the bat the floaral hops smash the nose with some nice pineapple notes.

T - Nice and smooth up front with and finishes with a nice bite. Good floral hops in the middle with some great almost tropical fruity pineapple to lead you to the bitterness. The flavor is amazing how complex and powerful it is.

M - Medium bodied, good carbonation and has a big bite. Amazing there is no boozy taste with as you may suspect with a 9.3

O - WOW! Definately full of flavor! You get what you pay for here and then some!

Poured easy into a pint glass and enjoyed with a pasta dinner.

A: Pale copper in color, with a non-persistent one finger head. Excellent lacing from start to finish. A very small amount of haze but for the most part translucent.

S: Strong. Citrusy and floral with pine undertones, perhaps some strawberry. A good one to stick your nose into.

T: Just enough malt to provide some body, but all in all very drinkable. Alcohol is pretty dominant at the end, but is more warming than anything else. Quite citrusy, but with an unidentifiable panoply of fruity tastes.

M: Excellent. Very clean and fresh, but simultaneously oily and consequently persistent. Lingers a bit more than other DIPAs, which is welcome. I subtract 0.5 due to the alcohol's pervasiveness; undoubtedly hard to cover up at 9.3% ABV, although others have managed.

O: A great DIPA that I just might make a go-to. After living in Colorado for six months, I can't believe it took me this long to try.

Papago Brewing in Scottsdale, AZ.

A - Typical copper color with a fluffy white head.

S - Subdued hops and slight citrus. Nothing crazy.

T - Creamy with dark fruits up front and a dry finish. Bready, sweet, and a bit of alcohol but it's welcomed.

M - Extremely easy to drink. Not cloying and not overly bitter. Perfect balance of hop bitterness and malty sweetness. Good stuff.

3.73/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Great copper translucent color to this pour. Quick bright head.

Smell: Floral = good, but not the smell I expected in this DIPA. Immediately curious as to the hop strains used. Can't find them listed on the brewery website. (anyone know and care to share?)

Taste: Great taste. The 9.3% is not overbearing, smooth flavor throughout.

Mouthfeel: Clean, appropriate malt profile. No shlack-like residue.

Overall: As expected, another quality brew from Odell. Great respect for this brewery. Main reason for 'Overall' rating is a slight negative reaction to the hop profile (floral and bittering). Admittedly, I'm used to PacNW Imperials with local hop strains dominating. Makes me even more curious about the hops used in this brew. Thanks Odell, this is my first BA post. Happy to be among good company.
