Odell Barrel Thief Oak Aged DIPA! "The hop has met its match! Barrel Thief is an Imperial IPA that was stolen from the brewhouse and stashed away in medium toast, new American oak barrels. The brew features a notorious tropical fruit hop character that tangles with hints of vanilla, dried fruit, and toasted nut from its time served in the barrel."

RATING SCALE:
0-0.9: "Drain Pour." Would not want to drink/finish. Terrible taste/aroma.
1-1.9: "Disgusting." A beer that has off flavors/taste and is very hard to drink/finish.
2-2.9: "Awful." Something went wrong. Doesn't represent the style and is hard to drink.
3-3.9: "Very Bad." Not made very well and doesn't meet the standards for the style.
4-4.9: "Bad." No off flavors, but has little to no taste or aroma. BMC products.
5-5.9: "Below Average" Nothing exciting. Has good, but many bad elements.
6-6.9: "Average." Has good flavor/aroma, but something is missing.
7-7.9: "Good." A solid example of the style, but has something minor wrong.
8-8.9: "Very good." Something that has a lot of good flavors and aromas and is easy drinking.
9-9.9: "Great." Goes above and beyond most beers, nails the style and has great taste/aroma.
10.0: "Mindblowing." Not necessarily perfect, but no improvement needed. Beyond exceptional. A+
