12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A - Tangerine like color with a quickly dissipating finger of head leaving little lacing, medium carbonation bubbles.

S - Piney floral hops, followed by the grapefruit hops then the tropical fruit hops (mango and pineapple). Slight bit of alcohol smell as the beer warms. Mild spice hints.

T - Taste is very hop forward, similar to the nose lots of pine, and some nice tropical tastes. Can taste a little of the alcohol but its still hidden very well.

M - Medium body and somewhat syrupy towards the end. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.

O - This is a solid Double IPA, and moderately priced at about 10 bucks for a 4 pack, but still a bit to overpriced IMO. Would drink this on special occasions or something, but still a little over my budget.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Hazy deep gold with a soapy ring of head, good lacing.

S: Big floral, tropical fruit notes, some resiny citrus rind and slight catty character. Little to not malt detectable on the nose. Some fruity esters may be mixed in as well, but the yeast remains pretty neutral.

T/M: Upfront there is a big, smooth bitterness followed by huge fruity, citrus rind hops. The mouthfeel is slick and oily toward the middle, and the bitterness lingers throughout. The finish is dry and hoppy, but some malt comes through to provide a sweet breadiness that binds with some warming alcohol spice.

Overall: A great DIPA, certainly of the dry west-coast variety, but does have some sweetness that is accentuated by the fruity hops. It is more a homage to hop character, with a restrained bitterness and minimal malt character that lead to a blank canvas for the hops to display their subtle nuances throughout the sip and into the dry finish. Very interesting and very well executed, I would absolutely get it again given the chance.

This is one of the best IPAs in the world. There is a certain fruitiness to the smell and taste which do well to mask the surprising 9.3% ABV. This beer is extremely dangerously drinkable with a crisp finish. Odell has a real winner here. I've had both on tap and from the bottle and they are equally as impressive.

12oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks Penguin3200

Crystal clear golden color with a frothy white head resting on top. Patchy lacing streaks the glass as the head retains with a collar of bubbly film.

Juicy, fruity nose with plenty of tropical tones and a dash of sweetness. Pineapple and mango with citrus peel and grapefruit. Soft warmth and toasted malty grains.

A one-two combo punch of juicy hops and tropical fruitiness. Sweet and bitter with pineapples, white grapes and an assortment of tropical fruits with a hint of burnt sugar. Medium malt backbone, touches of toasted grain, caramel and honey. Finishes bitter and juicy withing lingering alcohol warmth and fruit.

Medium body, well carbonated, sticky and juicy on the tongue. This wasn't what I was expecting, and the intense tropical flavors were a welcome breath of fresh air with all the citrus/pine bombs that're out there these days.
