4/5  rDev -1.7%

A: A cloudy, dirty copper in color with a finger of off-white head..nice texture. Leaves a lot of soapy lacing on all edges of the glass with a faint cap, but lots of large bubbles around the edges.

S: A fair amount of hops, but pretty well balanced by caramel, bready malts. Hops seems to be mostly citrus, but I think there's a bit of pine in here also.

T: Mirrors the smell. Citrus and piney hops with sweet caramel and bready malts providing support.

M: Medium bodied, kind of oily.

O: Not the best red ale I've ever had, but to be fair, it's a little past its best by date of 6/15/11. I would really like to try this again fresh and rescore.

Poured from a bottle dated 5.29.13 into a pint glass

Pours a very pretty ruby red with about a half inch foam head that stays throughout the duration of enjoying this one. Smells fantastic with a heavy dose of piny hops and some malty sweetness at the end. Tastes quite different than it smells, with the malty sweetness blending quite nicely with the hop presence.

Overall, this beer is one of my favorite offerings from Odell. As I sip on it, I am instantly transported back to my glorious days in Fort Collins as a CSU grad student... This was a beer that I always looked forward to every year, and I always had plenty on hand to share with guests at outdoor events and BBQs. Brings back memories of some of the best times of my life, and for that, I have to give this an obligatory two thumbs up.

Pours a clear, amber color. One inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong hops and some slight sweet malt. Fits the style of an American Amber/Red Ale. Mouth feel is smooth, crisp, and a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong hops throughout (especially in the finish), some earthy malt, and slight sweet malt. Overall, a really easy drinking beer but nothing special.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours red-amber with a huge foamy cream colored head that laces nicely throughout. Hoppy aroma of citrus and pine, balanced by caramel and bready malts. Flavor suggests the same as the aroma. Medium body with moderate carbonation, finishing slightly bitter and dry. A decent red ale. I actually liked this better the second time around on tap!
