Purchased at Odelay restaurant which is owned by the owner of Modestman Brewing in Keene, NH. Luckily even though the brewery itself is closed during the Covid-19 outbreak you can purchase cans Odelay. Purchased on 4/16/20. Opened and reviewed same day.

A thick NEDIPA style liquid, opaque appearance, gold color with a white haze. Soft foamy cap recedes to minimal cover. No lace.

Creamy citrus hop aroma! Golden malted grains and honey soaked white bread. Hops are crazy citric, honeydew melon and papaya, with an array of tropical fruity effects that goes beyond that.

The hops are thick with heavy fruity flavors: Melons, papaya, oranges...and a blend of tropicals. Complex hops are deep with grainy and dry earthiness, peppery and sweet tones. Wowza.
The golden, yet rich malted charecter is beyond just there for balance! Grains like wheat and spelt bring earthy and tangy effects while the malt becomes creamy and sweet with a smooth feel and rounded taste. Tangy, earthy, sweet, fruity, creamy... it's all in here. Complexity obviously high.

The mouthfeel, what can I say? The New England styles have it all...crisp, dry earthy, smooth and round...light that becomes practically full. Pretty impressive when done correctly. At 8.5% abv it's also a bit boozy hot, but the complexity hides this pretty well.

Mega is basically the flagship "Center of Attention" NEIPA bigger, badder bolder brother.
