Had on draft at the Mellow Mushroom on Mill Avenue in Tempe. Never had anything by this brewer before so it was a complete shot in the dark. Not bad at all, but nothing that re-writes the book on amazing IPAs. Would order again, and would try more from Odell if given the opportunity.

I had hopes for this beer.
Smell- it smells very sweet. I get mostly grapefruit but also, mango, alcohol, pineapple, and pine. This smells a lot like hop slam, but with a slightly more pine.
Taste- Mirrors the smell. I think there is way too much residual sugar. This sweetness does prevent any lingering bitterness. the hops should be able to breath a little bit instead of being suffocated in syrup. Hop slam is even less sweet.
Mouthfeel- syrupy. Good carbonation, but the sweetness killed it.
I do not appreciate hop candy beers. Odell has not impressed me after trying their 90 shillings and Red ale also.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bets by date of 11/21/12A.

A - Dark golden clear body. Small one finger off white head. Decent lacing and retention.

S - Some grass and pine with a finish of mango and pineapple and a touch of caramel malt. Somewhat muted and plan.

T - More lively than the nose would suggest. Tropical fruit forward with sweet caramel malt. Finish is peachy with some alcohol warmth. Mouth feel is medium yet somewhat sticky.

O - An above average DIPA, but not one of my favorites. Somewhat boozy with a muted nose. Nice tropical fruit notes though.

Upon first sniff I thought it was the same as the regular IPA. It smells more hoppy though, especially after it warms up. Taste is very hoppy, sort of spicy hoppiness, I think I like the regular IPA much better. The mouthfeel on this is too syrupy for my tastes. If you are looking for a hop bomb this might fit the bill but the syrup aspect tells me I won't be buying this again. This is better than the double IPA I had from Odell at Falling Rocks 10th anniversary party several years ago.

On tap at the brewery.

Very dense white head, heavy wall of lace. Excellent clarity.

Smells of fresh pine bough, pungent hop bitterness, and a bit oily, with hints of citrus, though nothing like I was expecting from the description/reviews.

The taste is very bitter, almost slightly medicinal at times, but soon enough citrus wades in with some pineapple and grapefruit flavors. These are missing a certain oomph though... like the hops were accidentally tossed into the boil 10 minutes early.

Soft carbonation with long, lingering bitterness.

Overall this is a good fix for the average hop head, but it was just simply not all that memorable.
