Pours a cloudy bright yellow/orange with a small white head that fades into nothingness but leaves good sticky lacing around.

Aroma bursts with tropical fruits and citrus hops. Very little malt.

Flavor starts off with some bright citrus and rounds into a grapefruit and pine dry bitter finish. Hardly a malt to be found here about which I have no complaints. Very hop forward but very well balanced and not bitterly astringent.

A touch of creaminess otherwise pretty light body with good carbonation.

One of the best newbies I've had in a while. Thanks to d4radio for the this and the other 3 I still have in the fridge. Definitely a west coast style where hops are king.

Got this as an extra thanks to Bardwashrind

Shared with my wife. Poured into my new belgium glass. It is a golden and transparent with a thin and wispy white head.

The nose is hops very fresh, earthy and slight citrus mix . There is a definite crystal malt backing.

The taste well is very nice matches the aroma. The mouth is surprisingly light. The is perhaps the most refreshing dipa i've ever had. The carbonation is upfront with the hop flavor. The flavors are earthy and then as the carbonation subsides it becomes bitter.

This is a very nice beer

Served in a British Pint.

A. A cloudy golden orange color. A finger of crisp, white head recedes to a half finger. Good lacing and retention.

S. Lots of pineapple, orange zest. Good amount of pine resin as well. Very balanced bouquet. Bready malts make a nice canvas for the other flavors. Lemon zest sets this one apart.

T. Wow, this is extremely juicy. Super chewy. A lot of grapefruit and lemon notes. Loads of pine resin and a lot of malt. Finish is resiny and bitter and I get just a hint of caramel and dark fruit. Almost barleywine-esque. A lot grassiness as well. Good, but a little much.

M. Well balanced flavors through the front and mid. Finish is a little grassy and bitter. Very sweet and sticky as well. Unique, but nicely done. Medium bodied.

O. It's not my favorite DIPA, but Myrcenary is solid nonetheless. Very tropical and thick, this is a unique and enjoyable concoction. Odell continues to please.

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!
