Odell India Barleywine
From Odell Brewing – Part double IPA and part malty sweet barleywine, India Barleywine is a unique and complex beer. Copious amounts of malts and hops intertwine giving the beer exceptional flavor and aroma. When enjoyed fresh, India Barleywine delivers a bright hop character, and when cellared, flavors of dried fruit emerge.
Odell Brewing – India Barleywine – 750 ml bottle poured into a goblet. 9.7% abv.
Appearance: Pours a vibrant, slightly cloudy fire orange with a sudsy cream colored head.
Aroma: Big grapefruit notes, that can be smelled from a good 2 feet away. Also some caramel and rock sugar in there as well.
Taste: Bitter, earthy hops, a mixture of sweet and dry malts, a little bit of citrus, and finishes with a nice dark chocolate note.
Mouthfeel: Very thin for a barleywine or a Double IPA. Slightly sticky.
Overall: Very complex and flavorful. I enjoy the hop aroma and flavor as well as the yummy malt offering in this beer.
