look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Ithaca glass. It poured a hazy amber color with a thick, frothy white head to it. Nice lacing as I drank it as well. Great looking beer

The aroma has a very juicy hoppiness to it. I get a lot of grapefruit to it with some sweeter notes of pineapple and mango. A little bit of the pale, bready malts peek through. Very appealing hoppiness to it.

The taste also shows a very juicy hoppiness to it. I get more of the bitter grapefruit coming through with some citrus rind like qualities to it in the finish. Like in the aroma, I get some sweeter tropical fruit like notes to it as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a really good hoppy beer. I loved the juiciness and the resiny bitterness it brought. Very flavorful and drinkable beer of the style.

Poured from brown 12 oz bottle to pint glass. Reviewed after numerous bottles.

A - The beer pours a translucent gold color with a nice 2 finger white head with good retention and excellent lacing.

S - Hops! Lots of fruity hops! Behind the hops is a good toasted malt profile but the nose is dominated by the tropical fruit, slightly earthy hop character. Awesome. No alcohol detected.

T - The beer starts with a nice bitterness, not overwhelming but pleasant and strong. The hop character dominates throughout: tropical fruit, citrus, pine, and earthy tones. The middle of the beer brings a balance with toasted barley and fills the palette. Chewy. The beer finishes crisp and full. Very good.

M - Well carbonated, creamy, crisp.

D - Absolutely. Hides the alcohol well. Dangerously easy to drink.

Overall, I had high expectations for this beer and was not let down, it's great. In a side by side to Pliny the Elder this beer has more fruit character and more crisp bitterness. Pliny is smoother. I would like to do a side by side with Seven Seas and Maharaja as I think they would be more similar.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Pours a crisp golden with a full white head, bubbles continually rising to surface and decent lacing. Aroma is fruity (good dose of peaches, citrus and its rind), oily, and a touch toasty. Flavor followed suit. A creamy, medium bodied active mouthfeel. Overall, fantastic beer. My favorite IIPA.

*From notes

-- Thanks, Siege --

A: Setting sun golden. Unfiltered. A good pour yields a one finger white head and decent lacing.

S: Intense tree sap and pine resin. A bit unfresh, maybe? Getting in there a bit deeper, I get a touch of mango.

T: Extremely piney. Too much, in fact. It's prickly, unjuicy and not all that pleasant of a beverage. It's also not the freshest DIPA I've had (from what I can tell, anyway).

M: Meh. It's alright, and utterly unspectacular.

O: This reminded me a lot of Short's Huma-Lupa-Licious: overtly pine forward, with little complexity or drinkability. Not something I'd recommend, and one I'll be avoiding in the future.

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.
