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.

Poured it into a Odell Brewing goblet glass it comes out orange look a bit hazy with some lacing. Great smell to this double IPA. Great taste a bit a grapefruit and pine. Even though its 9.3% Alc / vol it doesn't taste overwhelmingly strong. One of Odell best beers. I am on a huge Odell kick as of late. Thank God I live in Colorado where this beer is easy to find!!

Pours a clean and clear rusty amberish golden orange with a slight chill haze and a two finger head of plump foam.

Very resinous, oily, and slightly floral character but I attribute the floral notes to a more tea like character.

Slightly juicy tropical fruit notes of pineapple and mango up front with a bit of sweetness lingering.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, smooth, nice juicy and resinous character.

Overall, far from perfect but far from ordinary. A delicious and quite easy drinking DIPA here.

Lighter straw yellow. Lasting creamy head.
Enticing floral and fruit aroma.
Hoppy and bitter, but significant malt sweetness. Citrus prominent, and lingering bitterness. No astringency.
Sticky.
Actually, hard to believe the ABV is as high as it is stated.
Nice balanced DIPA.

I bought a can of this at a kiosk in the denver airport. The beer poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel spice. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink for a dipa. There is hints of citrus and pine. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Pours a slightly orange clear gold with a white head. Smells of citrus, tropical fruit, hops, and alcohol. Tastes of booze (a little much), slightly bitter hops, tropical fruits, and citrus. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall it's a good DIPA, but the flavor is lacking in hops and over abundant in alcohol which is a little bit of a turn off.

Pours a cloudy yellow with loads of foam and thick lacing. Lots of hops up front, with a good mix of citrus and some sweetness/floral. The taste is amazing, this has a load of hops and also sweet at same time with a nice citrus finish. I expected a bitterness but it has none, its ultra clean. Amazing beer, its a perfect DIPA in my mind, just impressed with this one. Would give this a medium feel, very clean and easy to drink and no alcohol bite at all. Awesome!!!
