Myrcenary Double IPAMyrcenary Double IPA
Notes: Named for Myrcene, a component of essential oils in the hop flower, Myrcenary Double IPA is our tribute to those who revere the illustrious hop, and their unyielding exploit to craft hop forward beers. Brewed with a blend of hops containing the highest levels of Myrcene, this double IPA prevails with a tropical fruit-like flavor, a pungent floral aroma, and a clean getaway.

12 oz. can -

Pours hazed golden with a creamy white lasting head. Plenty of lacing sticks.

The smell is floral with tropical notes. Spicy.

The taste is of robust tropical notes. Some alcohol shows. Nicely balanced with bitter hops with a malty sweetness. long, hoppy finish.

Creamy, chewy full body. Smooth despite strong alcohol warmth.

This is dangerously drinkable. Hop-forward but balanced. Warming alcohol, but not raw. Floral and tropical notes shine. A very pleasant, enjoyable, wonderful brew!

"Best by 5/13/17"; drank 3/4/17 @ the Yarchives.

See-through orange appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

A violent pour yielded a huge, noisy bright white head; thick, frothy lace.

Urine, peach & baking soda notes in the nose. Uh-oh...

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel. Sweet peach & tart urine-scented flavors up front; strong booze heat & baking soda dryness on the finish.

American barleywine hell; this was swill.

L - nice, clear amber with a two finger dense, foamy head, no bubbles
S - dank, pine, grapefruit
T - bready, a bite indicative of a double IPA, dank, not citrus forward, more west coast IPA than east coast
F - thick, malty, light carbonation, finish lets you know it’s a double IPA
O - good representation of a west coast double IPA, would hope for more aroma if ordered on draft but overall a good beer

Poured from draft. Clear amber with not much head retention but nice lacing. Citrus and tons of hops on the nose. Grapefruit, other citrus, maybe a bit of mango, with a backbone of pleasant undifferentiated hoppiness. Not much carbonation, smooth oily mouthfeel with a nice quick taper off of the hoppiness. This is a great beer!

12 oz. can poured into willibecher.

A- Light golden honey in color. Faintly hazy. Head is dense and off-white. Lingers the whole way through, and leaves some thick lacing.

S- Juicy tropical fruit, citrus, some floral notes. About the whole range of hop aromas, all punching you in the face.

T- Sweet, juicy, yet pungently bitter. Passionfruit, citrus, most apparent grapefruit. Mild toast background to keep a nice balance.

M- Body is medium-full, with a good balance of sweet and bitter.

O- Better slow down with this one. Great to gulp, heavy with aroma, flavor, and ABV.

It has a hazy gold color that is lighter than I would have expected from such a deep flavored IPA. Well blended smell and is not very hoppy - calm malt smell comes through. Drank at around 60 degrees F, it tastes sweet with high citrus and floral flavor. Much sweeter with less bitterness when it is at a temperature slightly higher than normal refrigerator temp. This is very balanced with no obvious dominant ingredient. Bitter aftertaste but not nearly as harsh as most double IPA's. The feel is oily with good seltzer-like carbonation.

It's an oily, piney, flowery blast, leaves you shaking your head. It's morphs and lingures, grows.

Taste rating in words: Find a pool of water, get waste deep, bend at the waste throw your face as hard as you can in.

Poured into a glass, a bright clear goldenrod, big marshmallow fluff head. Smells of pine woods in the rain. Hoppy, resinous, bitter taste with citrus. Slippery feel. Strong presence, this beer won’t play second banana. Drink it last.

Appearance – Clear, deep yellow body with a thin layer of head.

Aroma – Citrus and a little floral, with some light malts evident.

Taste – Pine at the fore, pine down the middle, and pine in the finish. Did I mention the pine?

Mouthfeel – Oily and coats the tongue, pretty good.

Overall – Pretty good even if a bit one-dimensional.

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

12 oz. Can

A bright and peachy look, amber and gold color with a low-lying white foam cap, spreads out fast, decent coverage with a bit of lacing.

The scent of dense hop oils, hop resin, pine, evergreen needles, sweet and grainy amber malt pops right out. Slightly boozy, hot citrus and sweet pineapple round it out.

The flavor is all about the resinous, oily, piney side of the hops. Tart, tangy, earthy, hop oils and plenty of bitterness. An oily, medium bodied feel and texture. The malt is pretty hefty with signs of summer field grains, amber sweetness and crispy edges. The 9.2 % abv is pretty boozy with a heat tingle. Citrus rind and grassy earthy undertones finish it off. I like the grassy and green hop flavor that lingers.

A really nice West coast beastie ipa. Serious bitter punch.

3 week old can.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden orange, with a foamy and creamy looking head, and a lot of lacing.

This one smells absolutely fantastic, with rich and resinous pine, candied grapefruit, fresh picked flowers, cut grass, tangerine, and pineapple.

This beer absolutely floored me. It's everything I want in a double IPA. Heavy and soft at the same time, with a resinous and sizzling piney bitterness, balanced by a huge juicy hop explosion- all sorts of grapefruit, pineapple, and tangerine, with a herbal character that was unexpected as well. There's just a touch of malt to prop everything up.

The body on this is perfect, crisp, but surprisingly creamy, with a soft level of carbonation. There's absolutely no booziness here, I don't know how they did it.

This feels like a perfect hybrid of each coast's style of IPA here. I can't find much wrong with this one.

Incredibly smooth for DIPA. Full flavor, yet lacks any overly bitter bite in the beginning, middle or end, or afterward. Couldn't feel the higher alcohol content, which is unusual for a DIPA. Bought it in Denver, and am pining for it in NJ. Probably the best DIPA I've had in many years.

My ideal beer.

Pours golden with a thin head. Smells strongly of hops and alcohol. Very smooth for the high alcohol content and for such a strong taste. Has quite a bite to it! The taste is extremely hop forward and does not need a complex profile to deliver it's great taste.

This beer is an ideal double IPA in every way.

Poured from a can into a pub glass.

Pours a pleasing golden color with a spectacular frothy head with plenty of staying power and lacing.

The nose is a great blend of tropical fruit (pineapple) and citrus (grapefruit) with a hint of evergreen/resin.

The flavor follows the nose, with great juicy grapefruit and sprucey flavors and just a hint of booze.

The feel is a touch thin, but very crisp and refreshing. The ABV is very well hidden.]

An excellent DIPA.

LOOKS: A fairly clear golden to light amber, with a finger of white head that sticks around. Fair amount of lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Tropical-like hops, an underlying almost honey like sweetness, and lightly toasted malt.
TASTE: The floral sweetness and the tropical notes out front, and a nice malty back bone.
FEEL: Full body, average carbonation, dry on the finish, but, has a touch of stickiness, too.
OVERALL: Very nice DIPA that I will have more of.

This brew, from a twelve ounce can, is a hazy honey-gold color. The head is one full finger, white, and leaves wonderful lace. The aroma is hoppy, with pine and citrus notes, pale malt, and a lot of booze in the flavor. The taste is sweet, with plenty of bitterness...lots of malt flavor, along with a citric hop flavor and some booze. Full in body. Nice.

Pours a hazy golden color with minimal head. Aroma of tropical fruit, mango, citrus. Solid flavor, I like the big malt backbone that balanced out the modest hop profile. Very good carbonation. This fits in with so many other DIPA's on the shelf, a good go-to but I wouldn't go searching for it.

Had on tap at the brewery - just a taste however, since I can never tolerate this much ABV, unf. Excellent. Impressive place with a great history since 1989.

Very nice bouquet on the nose of citrus and herbs. look and taste are of your standard DIPA's on the market. The feel is was smooth and carbonated. overall nothing crazy but a good beer to grab over many others.

Poured into a snifter. Looks like a classic American IPA: hazy but not turbid, golden-amber color, frothy white head with nice splotchy lacing. Moderate-intensity tropical aroma with floral notes and some bready malt. Huge flavor as expected: tropical fruit, berries, pineapple, some resin, and a nice restrained but balanced malt presence. Easy drinking for its ABV and not too hot on the finish. Outstanding all the way around. Thanks to Wasatch for this one!

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden orange amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and laces beautifully.

S: Citrus blossom honey, candied orange, floral, light tropical notes, and biscuity malt.

T: Citrus, candied orange, tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit, a hint of melon, floral, biscuity malt, and caramel honey sweetness.

M: A bit on the fuller side of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Big DIPA, could be a little bolder with the hops, but still darn tasty.
Had this twice while in Colorado, still feel like I'm getting to it at the end of its run. Definitely going to try to get my hands on some a little sooner next time around.

Tasted from a 12 oz can into a goblet.

L - Light golden color; hazy but not murky. Pure white head is thick and creamy, then fades to a thick ring around the glass and a thin sheet of bubbles. Solid lacing.

S - Aromas dominated by hops featuring fresh floral character and tropical fruit. There are some low bread and grain notes from malt, then a light, final hops finish like lemony citrus. Fresh and bright.

T - Initial flavors of hops--citrus (again, light lemon) and tropical fruits. Midpalate is sweet, bready malt, then the hops come back in for a semi-dry finish. Tropical/citrus hops and sweet malt linger in the aftertaste.

F - Medium body. Moderate level of hops bitterness. Velvety, low to medium carbonation. Some alcohol presence, but not as much as the ABV would suggest.

O - A delicious DIPA. Balanced, fresh and sumptuous.
