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.

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.

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 - 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.
Serving type: on-tap
