This is on tap at the local Old Chicago.

A great red colour with a small but persistent head of foam that brought some lacing with it.

The smell is very hoppy with big notes of pine,some citrus, and a mild presence of caramel malt.

The taste is just as good as the smell. Very bitter pine with some citrus that's semi balanced with caramel malts. A bit of bread as well.

Medium bodied, same for the carbonation.

I had 3 pints in 2 hours. Yeah, it's pretty darn drinkable. A nice unexpected find at my local watering hole.

This could easily be mistaken for an IPA.. Great transparent red color and smells like the grassiest fruity hops. The taste is bitter grassy hops again, fruit and bitterness. I guess you could call this red based upon the color but the smell and taste say hoppy IPA.

Appearance - Dark Hazy Orange with no carbonation. Good amount of lacing on the side. Good head retention on the side

Smell - Citrus Hops, Caramel, Yeasts, and Malts. Fairly simple, but fairly rich

Taste - Piney Hops, Caramel, Yeasts, with a fairly strong malty backbone. Blurs the line between Red Ale and IPA

Mouthfeel - Light Bodied and moderate carbonation with the end result being rather crisp.

Overall - I'd feel comfortable calling it an IPA rather than a Red Ale, but whatever you call it, it's still a pleasure to drink.

12oz bottle poured into Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Best by date is 5/3/12 so I assume this is pretty darn fresh. Thanks to eclipse54 for this one!

A: Pours a pretty reddish orange amber color. Initially about a finger and a half of reddish hued tan head. Disappeared fairly quick, but left some lacing trials.

S: Even through the dark malt bill than an IPA, I get some of those fruity hop aromas. Some grapefruit and other citrus. There are some pine hints as well. A little spicy hint from the malts as well.

T: I get a little bit on the tip of the tongue of piney hops initially. Maybe a little touch of that grapefruity flavor that I smelled. Then you get this mild spicy sweet malt kick in the middle of the mouth. It's very pleasant but sort of overpowers all the hop character. The close is crisp and dry and leaves you wanting more. Maybe some residual piney notes linger.

M: This is a medium bodied beer. Good seasonal.

O: Still have yet to meet an Odell beer that I don't like. This isn't my favorite but it's a solid beer for sure.

Copper ale with an off white head that falls with a nice lace. The American amber ale has a great nose with lots of toffee, caramel and strong hop spice. Big malt shows up in the taste w/o some of the other flavors in the nose. Hop bite is light but pleasant. Overall, a nice amber ale that gives the senses a nice run for the money and is still very drinkable. Might not buy for home again, but would gladly get a pint in a bar for a refreshing change of pace or a great go to beer for a place with a limited selection.
