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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12oz can poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance is golden-orange with 2 fingers of white head. Retention is average leaving a lot of light lacing and a cap.
Smell is medium in strength. It smells like orange, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, pine and malt.
Taste is somewhat below medium-high in strength. The taste starts with an herbal flavor followed by hints of mango and maybe passionfruit that's quickly overtaken by a sweet malt base. The malt base becomes drier with a pine hop bitter finish that's not quite medium-high.
Feel is a bit below medium-high in thickness. It's fairly chewy with low carbonation and low astringency.
Overall, it's a very good beer that hides the high ABV well. It's fairly easy to drink. It does a lot of things very well and there's nothing about it that's truly outstanding. It's far from worth the $14.99 for a six-pack that I paid for it at H.E.B..

Pretty nice glowing orange body. Smell is sweet and floral— tangerine, mango, hint of malt and vanilla, and a bit of pine. Taste is rich and sweet— dank pine at first, becoming tangerine and mango, then orange peel and caramel malt, slightly syrupy. Floral notes throughout, and a touch of hoppy spice. Feel is smooth, tongue coating, and slightly dry. Overall, quite rich and delicious.

Onnnnnn it. Just on it like a ping pong ball blasted full speed at a Thai bachelor party. Beer was canned in February of this year, but why care? I’m in Vegas, baby. Vegas!!!!! Super subdued because of it’s age, but still tasty enough like Sophia Loren today.

Get some.

Can pour - almost clear gold/orange color with thick white head leaving frosty lacing. Nose is mild citrus with a hint of dank. Taste follows more or less. Finishes with a bit of alcohol creep.

This beer is highly overrated on this site.
I am a huge fan of a lot of DIPAs but this one was a real disappointment.
The description states a "tropical fruit-like flavor, a pungent floral aroma, and a clean getaway".
None of which are true.
It's not even good bitter. It's just off.
I have carpet-tongue after drinking this.
If you can get a hold of some Jigsaw Jazz out of Fort Hill Brewery. That is a work of art. Every time.
No, I don't work for Fort Hill or know anyone who does

I look to Beeradvocate to give a reasonably accurate take on the quality. On this one, I have no idea where the 95 is coming from. I have bought one other hazy from Odell and it was average. After I saw the 95 on this one, got excited, bought it and was disappointed.

I'm not that worried about the look but nothing to look at, seems strangely darker than a bright hazy.
Smell - it's not that pleasant - it's like it's trying to be floral but failing with some detergent overtones
Taste - astringent and sour. I don't think it's because of the high alcohol content. Just don't think it was ever balanced right and maybe they attempted to compensate with extra alcohol or something. Regardless, the taste is really off-putting.
Feel - definitely not fluffy or something you'd feel on a good NE / hazy IPA.
Overall - not enjoyable. We usually by 4-6 different IPAs at a time, this was our least favorite and really don't want to finish it.

Another reviewer called out that it tastes like barely wine - agree. It's like they attempted to package something else as a high-octane NE / hazy IPA and it's a fail.

Sorry, this beer is not worthy of a 95, below 80 IMO.

3.35/5  rDev -21.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a clear, medium to deep orange color with a strong white head. SRM of 10. (4.00)

Aroma: Mild aromas. Some orange, grapefruit, and tropical fruit and mildly vinous aroma. Mild and leans sweet

Flavor: The flavor follows with a deep and rich candied orange flavor. Sweet grapefruit and orange candy. Tropical too. A caramel malt sweetness on the end.

Feel: Medium-bodied. Light carbonation. Finishes oily and heavy.

Compared to Lagunitas Maximus IPA 6/11/21: Pours a lighter color. Milder aromas. More orange citrus and tropical sweetness. Less pineapple and orchardfruit. More oily and sweet. Winner: Maximus

Overall: An okay double IPA. Not sure it's a double. Maybe I'd call it a triple. It has some deep and resinous orange and tropical flavors. Not a whole lot here honestly. The sweetness and malts seem to overpower and difficult to discern flavors. It may have also been an older beer. (The date on the can was a couple months in the past. Not sure if its the canned on or best buy date for Odell, which irks me). The body felt oily and under-carbonated. I'm not a fan of Triple IPAs and this one might be one of the reasons why.

Myrcenary Double IPA from Odell. On room temperature shelf at Total Wine, Selma, TX. $3.24 (Including tax)/12 oz can ($ 0.270/oz). Stored at home at 42 degrees. Reviewed 9/6/21. Note that I use DD/MM/YY protocol.
Undated can. Served at 43.2 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter. Final temperature 53.4 degrees.
Appearance – 3.5.
First pour – Pale Straw (SRM 2), clear.
Body – Pale gold (SRM 4), opaque. When rear-lite, translucent.
Head – Large (Maximum 5.5 cm, aggressive center pour), white smoke, medium density, rapidly diminishing to a ten to twelve mm crown, and a rocky complete cap. A partial ring of lacing remains above the crown, like a fractured halo.
Lacing – Good. Wide band of tiny to small bubbles, having many large stalagmites and a few small stalactites.
Aroma – 4 – Mild pineapple - no malt, no yeast.
Flavor – 4 – Begins moderately bitter with weak pineapple and weaker malt, no yeast, and no ethanol (9.3 % ABV, as marked on container) taste or aroma. No dimethylsulfide or diacetyl.
Palate – 4 – Medium, slightly syrupy, soft carbonation.
Final impression and summation 3.75 (After deducting 0.25 point for an undated personal container) Absolutely no hint of alcohol in the flavor or aroma, even the lacing belies the alcohol content! Seems to my taste to be sticky pineapple.

Pour into a teku glass yields a 1 1/2 finger, off-white head. Smells dank and slightly sweet. Hop forward in taste but a nice malt presence still hangs in there. Not overly bitter. Very smooth with a clean finish. Not much of an aftertaste. Alcohol is VERY well hidden. This beer is delicious! Thanks Odell!

Poured into a tulip glass the head is light beige in color with thick creamy foam and tight bubbles. As it settles it still keeps a 2 finger head with lace from the high mark. Color is bright amber and more opaque than clear and not hazy.

Nose is an inviting citrus and caramel. A complex sweet burnt sugar or caramel flavor with big citrus hops greets the palate. No pine seems present in the complex hoppy taste but rather a hint of sweet grapefruit. Balanced & complex, very enjoyable and it does not too bitter a finish. The higher alcohol is very well integrated in the overall taste and is not forward.

This beer feels medium in body, has nice light carbonation, and finishes creamy smooth.

I had this beer many years ago and it made a big impression on me as a massively complex beer. Today it is still a favorite but not nearly as massive feeling (read that as huge hops and even bigger body). This is one of my favorite beers. Tasty!

Body is orange/amber with a thick two finger head. Smell is pine, over ripe citrus fruits.
Taste is piney hops and some bready malts, grapefruit and some sweet peach to balance out the bitterness. Mouthfeel is bitter and lasting.
Enjoyed this and my favourite DIPA out of the few I have sampled. Shame I've not been able to find this more than once.

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!
