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!

Got this cool lookin red thanks to Doodler.

A: A semi thick frothy head rises over a very clear dark reddish brown "deck-stain" like color. As the head slowly fades it leaves a nice lacing.

N: Pretty interesting nose, with some spicy fresh hops right away. Like fresh wet hops. Then some dark malts, little crystal malt. Not much else as the fresh hops really just overpower it all. I'm now wondering if I should have let this sit a bit first as the fresh hops may be too much for a red ale.

T: Taste is much easier on the hops. It starts with a slightly sweet malts. Mostly caramel/crystal, then some toasty malts. Slightly sweet brown sugar molasses like flavors, followed with some toffee. All that is followed by some lighter hop flavors. A slight bitterness with some grassy and spicy hop flavors, and a little earthy musty fresh wet hop. Slight chewy malt and hop combination hidden in there as well. A very slight bright fruit flavor as well.

M: Medium body with good carbonation.

F: Finish dries off a bit more, and comes with a slight bitter spicy hop flavor that hits more on the end. It adds more of that caramel and toasted roast, and slight porter flavors late. A lingering earthy bitterness from the hops really continue late.

Overall a really nice red ale. I'm usually not a big fan of red ales, but this really redefines what I thought of them. It has some nice malty caramel sweetness, and combined with a great hop character, despite being a little too much on the nose.
