Picked up a sixer from Total Wine back in mid January for $8.99.

Beer poured a deep copper color with a nice off white head that is leaving lacing behind. Nose is very good, strong malt presence combining with a very pleasant citrus aroma. Taste is pretty balanced; caramel hops form a nice backbone, hop finish is citrusy and piney. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth for the style. Overall drinkability is very good. This is a very good beer that is well balanced and easy to drink for fans used to an IPA level of hops in their beer.

Bottle reads 4/26/11B

A= The pour is a beautiful deep amber color that is completely translucent. The head is rather small with a mixture of large soapy bubbles and tiny bubbles holding some steady retention and lacing.

S= The smell is a great combination of caramelly malts and spicy hops. It sort of reminds me of Summits extra pale ale if they used more of a west coast hop variety. The malt bill must be similar. The hops are more fruity and a little piney.

T= Excellent taste. Just what I was hoping for actually. A nice combination of sweet caramel malt and nice spicy hops. While most hoppy reds really blur the line between red and IPA this is a quality balance between the more malty reds and the super hoppy reds. Really nice biscuit character hidden a little deeper in there. Excellent beer.

M= Nice smooth carbonation that doesn't get out of hand.

D= Another home run from Odells. They may be becoming one of my favorite breweries quickly. These guys do awesome work. Worth checking out. I went into the liquor store today hoping to just find something drinkable and I got it. Awesome beer!

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!
