4.3/5  rDev +5.7%

Poured from the bottle into a perfect pint glass

A-Off copper not overly deep but no where near pale. Light head not even 1 finger but laces well down the glass.

S-Sweet fruit or citrus notes. Nice mellow malt and some lightly floral hops

T-Shines the most where is matters. Very good mild hop flavor with a sweet malt middle that finishes crisp and clean. Subtle malt and hops so that neither are overbearing and go to together so very well.

M-Medium body near perfect carbonation.

D-This is one I will miss when its gone and just reminds me why I love this brewery so much.

Served from a 12oz bottle

Let me start by saying that although I am pretty bummed out that extra special red is gone along with the rest of the single batch series (which was awesome), I am happy that the new replacement series teed off with this beer, it's pretty damn good.

A-Murky deep amber with a small white head, decent retention and awesome lacing.

S-Cereal grains, caramel, piney hops.

T-SO well balanced. Nice rich sweet maltiness that has a funky intermingling with lemon grass hop flavor that rolls into a deep raosty and caramel malt flavor with a deep long lasting bitterness. Really tasty.

M-Nice, thick enough body but thin enough to drink easily. Good Co2.

D- Yeah buddy. Really flavorful and not filling. A great flavorful session beer or a decent sipper.

As always Odell's knocks another homerun.

A cloudy, copper colour with an eggshell head. The beer smells citrus-hoppy and sweet, with a slight malt scent. The beer tastes like citrus and hops right away, almost like a grapefruit flavour. It finishes clean, with a slight sweetness to it.

Would I buy it again? Definitely!

A - Pours a deep, clear, reddish amber color with a somewhat small, tan head. Despite the minimal head, it retains well and leaves some solid lacing behind.

S - Complex hop aromas jump out first - piney, citric, spicy, and floral notes. Balanced out with some toasty, sweet, caramel malt aroma.

T - Fairly hop-centric flavor. The hops contribute a distinct herbal/floral quality as well as a touch of citrus and pine. The toasty, caramel malt comes through in the middle giving some balance without overdoing the sweetness. Finishes rather dry and leaves some herbal, piney flavors lingering into the aftertaste, somewhat reminiscent of some good ganja.

M - Medium bodied with a smooth feel

D - Another tasty brew from Odell. Definitely leaning towards the hoppier side, but enough malt to maintain a nice balance. Enjoyed this one a lot, and will definitely have to revisit it.

This is an amazing brew from Odells in Colorado it smells great reminding me of the aroma of a glass of Guava juice that i used to have when I was a kid in other words it has a very fruity smell.I had taken it out of the fridge and poured it from the bottle into a pilsner glass, this beer isn't the best too cold as i first found the cold numbs the flavor out and all you are left with is a very bitter taste with no flavor. Let this beer sit in your mouth and warm up and you will find a wonderful bouquet of flavor with a taste full of hops, pine, and that fruity flavor you could smell. Overall i was very pleased with my purchase and very happy I still have 5 of them left in my fridge.

Tangy! I totally get the grapefruit flavor everyone mentions on here. This is a very good red. The hops are all over the place, shaming many a so-called "ipa" My head didn't retain on this particular pour but it is leaving some nice lacing on the pint glass. The beer smells quite hoppy as well. A nice, easy drinking red that I will definitely come back to in the future.

back and better than ever (or so i hear)... pours a not fully red and perfectly clear amber color lighter than expected. nose is piney hops and a dusty caramely red malt. more hoppy than sweet, and in fact more hoppy than most red ales. taste is epic, huge depth and tons of hops for the genre. agressive and lasting. just short of an ipa, or rather, much too much going on to be just an ipa, like drinking a the redwood forest. this beer rocks. mouthfeel is way up there, fuller bodied and strong, but drinkable like no other. what a session! odell is blowing my mind every new one i try. wow. this is a fantastic early spring seasonal

Poured from a bottle with a "best by" date of 4/26/14; into a pub glass. This is formerly named Red; Odell has renamed this to Runoff Red IPA.
Appearance - a red, sunset orange hue with a huge fluffy beige head. Swirling carbonation bubbles. Lacing is laddered on the back of the glass.
Smell - lots of citrus hops in the nose, this certainly starts off as an IPA!
Taste - follows the nose in its hop forward nature! Reminds me of Stone's Levitation!
Feel - not as complex as I was expecting; well balanced, but still a bit one sided.
Overall - there is no doubt that this is a red IPA and not an amber ale. Recommended for all hop heads!
