This is a very solid offering from Odell. It pours an amber-orange with a nice, lacy head. Smell is of malt and sweetness, as is the taste with very little hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice and rich without being overpowering. Overall, one of Odell's better beers, but it cannot compete with their IPA or Myrcenary Double IPA. Bravo

Pours a pretty dark amber with significant head that crumples after a few minutes and leaves light lacing on the glass. Really good looking beer, for sure. Smells caramelly and can definitely detect the hops in the nose. Malty flavor with nice hop balance, and a medium mouthfeel, with adequate carbonation. A nice winter warmer from Odell, but not really taking it to a new level. And at 6% abv, may want to keep your hoodie on.
