The Odell Brewing Company of Fort Collins, CO produces a line of hop forward beers that are distributed in South Dakota. Myrcenary, a double India Pale Ale or DIPA, is a recent release. It is available in a four pack of 12 ounce bottles for $11.29. I picked up some at Good Spirits Fine Wine & Liquor (Taylor’s Pantry) in Sioux Falls.
The beer pours out a deep gold color into a pint glass (I admit that maybe a tulip glass or snifter would have been better). A nice white head is present. The aroma and flavor are a mixture of tropical fruit, citrus and floral notes. The ABV = 9.3%, but the alcohol is not prominent. This beer reminds me a lot of the Dreadnaught DIPA from the Three Floyds Brewing Company of Munster, IN.
Grade = A
This is a delicious beer, but make it a sipping beer because of the alcohol content. Myrcenary is scheduled to be a year round release. I will certainly pick it up again. Enjoy!
