S: malt, some cirtrus and pine notes, but less hop forward than I was expecting very sweet for an IPA... in a good way

T: pleasant balance of biscutty malts and hops, aftertaste even maintains that balance, alcohol comes through a little.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

I forgot who sent me this one, my apologies, but big thanks to whomever it was. Myrcenary pours a golden-yellow color with some vibrant, tangerine-orange hints at the edges. Mild clarity with only a touch of haze in the middle. The foamy white head settles quickly and surprisingly leaves only a little bit of lacing on the glass.

The hop character is pretty overwhelming with the first whiff; it's incredibly pungent and oily and sticky with a mild floral character and some lighter citrus in the background. The abundance of hops seems matched largely with a huge malt character. It smells sweet, pungent, bitter, malty, and heavy all at once. Almost reminiscent of Deviant Dale's, a beer that I was unfortunately not a fan of.

I take a sip and I'm met with pungent, dank, and lightly piney hops up front. Jesus Christ, this stuff is huge. Sticky, heavy, and resinous as hell. Resinous and dank to an unnecessary degree, really. I'm not getting the "tropical fruit-like flavor" as described on the bottle itself, unless I count the mild citrus and orange peel that I'm getting in the finish.

Myrcenary is quite bitter, though the malts are pounding with incredible sticky sweetness, too. Pushing the caramel line but erring more so on the side of toasted bread, the malts are a bit too sweet for an IPA of any kind. This beer coats your entire mouth and palate, and you can feel it long after you swallow it. Sticky, resinous, thick, abrasive, pungent, dank, you name it.

Actually kind of surprised the rating is so high for this. I had a reasonably fresh bottle, so it wasn't old or anything. Perhaps I'm not that partial to the dank and resinous bomb. I enjoy those flavors, sure, but not quite in this capacity. And the malt, being so sweet, does more overwhelming harm than balancing good. Not an awful beer, but merely average at best. I don't want my DIPAs to be this slow of sippers.

4.75/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Hazy golden yellow with just the slightest bit of orange hue, and a small white head that sticks around. Leaves a good lacing.

Nice citrusy and floral hop aroma, with just a tad of pine and a small bready malt base if I try hard. Very hop forward, which is something I love in IPA's, especially doubles.

Complex hop combo that is much more about the flavor and aroma than bitterness. Plenty of the citrusy, fruity, floral and piney hops all meshing together perfectly in a super hop forward but not a crazy smack in the face way. Getting the bready, cracker malts which blends really nicely too.

Moderate body and carbonation with a very creamy smooth overall feel. Not heavy despite the size. Very nice.

Very nice DIPA - way more mellow than I expected from the aroma, but totally works. You'd never guess this was such a huge beer, considering how smooth and easy drinking it is, but you know it's a DIPA because of the complex hop explosion. Highly recommended.

4.73/5  rDev +10%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Poured a clear golden orange with a fluffy white head, very fine bubbles and a sticky lace.

Smell: There's a strong hop presence, but the bitterness of the scent is being battled by something very sweet - this is probably due to the Myrcene from the hops. It's a civil war between hops and sweet fruits.

Taste: The beginning tickles the tongue until the back of the throat is kicked with sweet fruits and floral tastes; the middle rolls the flavor back onto the tongue with a sharp but gentle bitterness; the end lingers into a calm bitterness and tasteful remembrance of the aroma.

Mouthfeel: The beginning kicks on with seem heat. The carbonation is a tad strong, but it is still a smooth guzzle, semi-thick - medium bodied.

Overall: My friend and I like to call this the 'Urban Elephant' - referring to Odell's (wonderful) IPA. Overall, Odell did very well with this DIPA. It's a nice change - like moving from the country to the city (or vice versa.) There's a raw power in its hop content.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a teku.

A: Burnt copper orange with a hazy, cloudy appearance. Three finger head with medium lacing.

S: Lemon rind, pine needles, white tea leaves, sweet malts.

T: Burnt lemons, orange juice, pinesol (in a good way), dried citrus fruits, fucking mother fucking delicious.

M: Medium carbonation with a lingering hoppy sweetness. Mouthfeel is slightly thicker than a normal DIPA.

O: This is fucking amazing, and I'd buy it all the time if it were readily available to be, but alas, I randomly found this one in a bar in Florence, Italy...would definitely even consider trading for this one! This is phenomenal.

4.68/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured on tap into a tulip.

A - Amazing clear golden orange with 2 fingers of white bubbly head.

S - Very tropical and fruity. Massive orange notes with pineapple and grapefruit. Nice hop character in the nose.

T - Huge hop blast with similar qualities of the smell coming through. Lots of orange and tangerine. I read from somewhere that this like the Sunny D of IPAs and I can definitely confirm that! Amazing balance with not a lot of bitterness in the finish.

M - Very smooth, but a little too malt forward for my liking. Doesn't subtract much for the enjoy-ability of the beer though.

O - An amazing feat of a beer by Odell. My current favorite of their offerings and one of the best IPA experiences I've had. So glad to have this year round and available near me.

2.9/5  rDev -32.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 33 cl snifter. Best by date 6.12.13.

Look- Pale amber with two and a half fingers of dense white suds that fall slowly to a tight cap, light haze. Ropes of sticky lace adorn the glass as it empties.

Smell- Sweet, mucho pineapple. Not much else makes it through; swirling brings out lemon candy and honeydew melon. Very, very sweet, but not entirely off-putting with the fruit accompaniment.

Taste- Much like the aroma, very sweet and hop-driven. Light treacle and pineapple, starfruit. Moderate bitterness on the back end with a touch of booze- rather than playing nicely the bitterness accentuates the booze and gives the overall impression/aftertaste of gin.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full, moderate to high carbonation. Chewy. Fairly boozy, warming and some harshness after the swallow.

Overall- Pretty middling for a DIPA; nothing I've not seen before and borderline overhopped, too boozy for my liking. If you're of the "More hops! Higher ABV!" mindset, you'll probably like this, but I'm not really a fan.

4.46/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Very attractive bottle and label with cool graphics and font with a flat old school look. Label gives a bit of brewery info, a nice back story of the beer, web info, ABV info, Best by date(6/25/13), and the Odell logo, which I believe is an Aspen leaf. Nice label.

Appearance: I allowed this to warm for 10min before pouring from its 12oz bottle into a 16oz snifter. Myrcenanry pours out a slightly hazy bright golden amber honey color with a solid 2 finger white foam head that is airy but still densely packed. Head retention was 4min 37sec before fading to a thick frothy coating and ring. Excellent lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of an herbal mint like sweet grapefruit with just the slightest hints of alcohol and sweet malts.

Flavor/Taste: Taste can only be described as juicy with a tropical sweet grapefruit bitterness that turns a bit herbal with a malt sweetness to balance out the bitterness. Finishes bitter with a bitter slightly medicinal aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the full side of medium bodied with a chewy creamy mouthfeel that finishes dry. Extremely drinkable and tasty.

Overall/Comments: This came highly recommended and it lived up to it's hype!!! An excellent very well put together and well balanced DIPA that was more tropical than any I have ever experienced!! I really enjoyed this!! Highly recommended!! Classified as an American Double/Imperial IPA @ 9.3% ABV. Consumed 4/15/2013.

A- golden orange, slightly cloudy, white head dicipates into thin white lines, leaves nice lace

S- surprisingly less aroma than I would have thought, citrus and sweet tropical hop aroma

T- tropical fruit, like passionfruit, very interesting fruity and citrus. Dry malty backbone. There is a slight hot finish, but for being 9.whatever the ABV is I can't tell it has as much alcohol as it does

M- very thick without being cloying, very nice

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy copper with a thick foamy off white head. Nice webby lines of lacing.

Aroma: Perfect balance of caramel malt sweetness and bitter citrus hops.

Taste: Rich and malty up front, a nice pure caramel touch. Then gets bitter right away with piny hops and grapefruit rind bitterness. Well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, a tad sticky.

Overall: The balance is key here, and everything else falls into place nicely.

This beer was fantastic. Orange glow sticky head. Pineapple bomb on the nose. A little sticky mouthfeel but nice and full. Flavo ris a giant pinepapple bomb as well with lots of other tropical fruit flavors. Malt leaves a nice sticky sweetness in the mouth. Bitterness is absent, purely balance, and alcohol is non-existent. An excellent beer and wish I could get my hands on more of it.

Poured into a tulip from a bottle labeled with a best by date of 11/19/13, so fresh!
Appearance - a cloudy, sunset orange with a foamy, white head that sticks around until the end; lacing sheets the back side of the glass!
Smell - grapefruit, a little mango, some pepper, grass, pine!
Taste - easy drinking at 9.3%! Just a hint of warming alcohol.
Feel - best part of this beer! Hop bomb, grapefruit bitterness!
Overall- An excellent beer, but I'd rather go with the standard IPA that Odell puts out, especially for the price of the two. R

4.46/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Let me start by saying, I really really really wish Odell distro'ed in WI.

Pours clear amber with about 2 fingers of frootthhhyy khaki head. The foam just sits there. It's very sticky and very inviting. Exceptional looking IIPA.

Smells honey and caramel sweet. Bright citrus hops abound (mostly tangerine and a bit of mango). Very clean and big nose. Some floral hops on the backend, but citrus sweetness overwhelms the scent.

How drinkable can a 9.3% IIPA be? The answer is THIS. This beer is so sweet, and citrusy, and rounded. The taste is very deliberate and well-exicuted. There is some resin on the finish, but it's highly enjoyable. I'm getting mostly the meat of the orange in the flavor. It's a juicy beer.

Mouthfeel is medium with medium-low carb. I like the feel a lot, but it's a tad syrupy for my taste. I was hoping for a crisp resiny finish. Regardless, this is a small deduction.

This IIPA is fantastic. It dances with the big boys in almost every conceivable way. An excellent Odell-ian offering.

A- Poured on 4/22/13 from a 12 oz bottle with a best by date of 7/6/2013 into an IPA Spiegelau glass. Pours a hazy copper with a solid 1.5 finger white head. Suds have a fantastic hold on the glass. Good retention with a thin layer that sticks around the whole time.

S- Intense floral and citrus notes. Tropical fruits as the label indicates. Tangerine, grapefruit, melon, and lots of mango. Some nice flowery aroma. Hop oils and lemon grass also add to the nice hop profile. Just a slight amount of a malt base comes through

T- Big hop flavor as the nose indicates. Maybe not as intense as the smell, but nothing to complain about. Hop forward, resinous, juicy hops. Just enough bready backbone to give it some balance and mellow it out from the hop rush before the bitterness sets in again.

M- Really like the feel of this beer. Mid body, creamy and velvety. Nicely carbonated with a dry finish and alcohol that is well hidden at this abv.

O- Wonderfully done IPA that does a terrific job of paying tribute to the hop complexity. Not sure that the flavor of this brew stands head and shoulders above the rest of its style, but a delicious beer no doubt.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Served on tap in chalice at St. Paul Pizza Luce reviewed from notes.

A- Very pale orange with a thin white this ale is almost glowing in the glass.

S- Hops, hops, hops forward. Very floral and glorious on the nose.

T- Hop bomb and follows nose very nicely. Grapefruit bomb with huge hop sweetness but balanced nicely with a slightly dry finish.

M- Medium full bodied and lingering with hops yet not syrupy like Hopslam.

O- I am so glad this is still available on tap and possible to find. I much prefer the mouthfeel and finish on this ale over Hopslam as it is definitely comparable and preferable to the Bell's hop grenade. My girl friend said it best when she said, "It tastes purfumey."

Cheers.

4.09/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into an oversized wineglass. Best by 06/15/13 on label. Single purchased at a Minneapolis area bottle shop by my brother for $2.99.

A: Amber-honey with a light copper tinge topped with 1-finger of off-white foamy small-bubbled head which left minimal to no lacing.

S: Explosive resin and pine aromas are followed by peach, mango, and passionfruit. Grapefruit plays a role but I get this a much more piney and resiney. The maltiness is bready without much sweetness. Yeast character is nil.

T: The flavor is not quite as intense or complex as the nose but there is nothing wrong with it, but it doesn't really keep up with the big boys, as the resin is the most prominent hop flavor followed by pine and grapefruit/lemon. The mango and more tropical flavors fade into the secondary role but add layers. The maltiness is bready with just a mild amount of light-medium caramel character. The yeast character is none. The bitterness is high, higher than I expected, probably owing to the overly resiney quality of the hops flavor.

M: Smooth and well-carbonated, medium body, medium dry but I think could be a little drier.

O: A nice beer but not on a level that I would put with the likes of other reasonably available DIPAs like Ruination or Sculpin. Definitely worth a try though -- a nice beer with a great name.

4 pack obtained from a friend driving back from Denver, much appreciated. No bottling date on the 12 oz bottle, poured into a FFF Teku.

A: Clear, deep red-amber color with an eggshell-white 2 finger head, nice lacing and retention.

S: Tropical fruits and sweet malts are abundant but not overwhelming, but probably the most tropical-smelling DIPA I've come across.

T: Follows the nose well, but a touch subdued, with a readily-apparent malt presence. Bitter but not overwhelmingly so. Hides the ABV well.

M: Full-bodied and definitely on the smooth side, Carbonation is moderate and pretty much spot on, not as dry as it should be though for a DIPA.

O: Pleased to have a 4-pack of this brew, definitely enjoyed it and would drink it again. Probably would not trade an arm and a leg for it, but if I was in the area I'd seek it out. Not quite world class, but certainly excellent.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A - Tangerine like color with a quickly dissipating finger of head leaving little lacing, medium carbonation bubbles.

S - Piney floral hops, followed by the grapefruit hops then the tropical fruit hops (mango and pineapple). Slight bit of alcohol smell as the beer warms. Mild spice hints.

T - Taste is very hop forward, similar to the nose lots of pine, and some nice tropical tastes. Can taste a little of the alcohol but its still hidden very well.

M - Medium body and somewhat syrupy towards the end. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.

O - This is a solid Double IPA, and moderately priced at about 10 bucks for a 4 pack, but still a bit to overpriced IMO. Would drink this on special occasions or something, but still a little over my budget.

4.44/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Hazy deep gold with a soapy ring of head, good lacing.

S: Big floral, tropical fruit notes, some resiny citrus rind and slight catty character. Little to not malt detectable on the nose. Some fruity esters may be mixed in as well, but the yeast remains pretty neutral.

T/M: Upfront there is a big, smooth bitterness followed by huge fruity, citrus rind hops. The mouthfeel is slick and oily toward the middle, and the bitterness lingers throughout. The finish is dry and hoppy, but some malt comes through to provide a sweet breadiness that binds with some warming alcohol spice.

Overall: A great DIPA, certainly of the dry west-coast variety, but does have some sweetness that is accentuated by the fruity hops. It is more a homage to hop character, with a restrained bitterness and minimal malt character that lead to a blank canvas for the hops to display their subtle nuances throughout the sip and into the dry finish. Very interesting and very well executed, I would absolutely get it again given the chance.

This is one of the best IPAs in the world. There is a certain fruitiness to the smell and taste which do well to mask the surprising 9.3% ABV. This beer is extremely dangerously drinkable with a crisp finish. Odell has a real winner here. I've had both on tap and from the bottle and they are equally as impressive.

12oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks Penguin3200

Crystal clear golden color with a frothy white head resting on top. Patchy lacing streaks the glass as the head retains with a collar of bubbly film.

Juicy, fruity nose with plenty of tropical tones and a dash of sweetness. Pineapple and mango with citrus peel and grapefruit. Soft warmth and toasted malty grains.

A one-two combo punch of juicy hops and tropical fruitiness. Sweet and bitter with pineapples, white grapes and an assortment of tropical fruits with a hint of burnt sugar. Medium malt backbone, touches of toasted grain, caramel and honey. Finishes bitter and juicy withing lingering alcohol warmth and fruit.

Medium body, well carbonated, sticky and juicy on the tongue. This wasn't what I was expecting, and the intense tropical flavors were a welcome breath of fresh air with all the citrus/pine bombs that're out there these days.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a lovely, hazy rich gold with nearly three fingers of dense, bubbly off-white foam.

Smell: Lemon curd, pineapple, soft mango, and a whiff of white grape. There's also some earthy and oaky aromas with a light funkiness that seems to show up as the beer warms a bit. Very complex and enjoyable.

Taste: Tropical fruit, resiny pine and a little white grape with a nutty finish. Dank and just a touch musty. There's a lot of flavor going on here but it's surprisingly balanced. Didn't really pick up on any of the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Very smooth bitterness that doesn't overstay its welcome. Refreshing with just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall, this was an exemplary double IPA. Odell has itself a real winner here and I'm glad they brew this year-round. Myrcenary (named after Myrcene, one of four essential oils found in the hops cone) is a bold and robust beer with a wonderfully complex aroma and flavor, an incredible balance, and a smooth finish. This is one I would return to often if it was available in Illinois.
Dangerously drinkable stuff.

Appears a very pale gold with heavy lacing. Nose is heavy with aromatic hops, pine oil, grapefruit, weed, and resin come through strong. Taste is hop forward with earthy hops, piney hops, and more hops. Not much malt to back things up, but tasty either way. The taste is hop forward too but with a nice balance of bitterness. Grapefruit and pine are the strongest. Mouthfeel is light and heavily carbonated. Very tasty dipa.

12 oz bottle, dated 4/16/13, poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a finger of white head, leaves a bit of lacing, recedes to a thin layer.

S- Big fruity hops aroma, lots of tropical fruit and citrus. There's also a bit of garlicy hop aroma and caramel.

T- A bit subdued compared to the aroma, the hops still have a nice amount of juicy tropical fruit, the caramel sweetness is a bit more noticeable in the flavor. Dry and resinous finish.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, a bit thinner than you'd expect for the ABV. A bit of warmth in the finish.

O- A very solid DIPA, easy-drinking with a great aroma. Definitely give this one a try.
