4.45/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours clear amber/red with orange hue. Head is creamy and adequate, off-white orange, leaves great lacing on the way down to a thin ring.

S - Piney and citrusy hops. Smells like an IPA with sweet malt notes.

T - Sweet malt base, good amount of bitterness, followed by a bouquet of hop flavors.

M - Moderate body with lingering bitterness. Warms the throat after a while.

D - Very drinkable and fully enjoyable.

Overall - This is a scarey beer, because it tastes so good and drinks so smooth. The ABV will sneak up on you. I like this beer almost as much as the Odell IPA (flip a coin). I would take either one.

4.46/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

The beer comes out a rich red color with a thick, creamy light tan head; plenty of stickiness and lacing on the glass. Strong pine and spruce hop aromas emanate from the beer with a good biscuit and caramel malt presence in the background. The taste is rich and malty (caramel predominantly) with a prominent hop bitterness blending nicely with everything. The feel is almost medium in body with a fairly clean, smooth finsih.

Odell's makes some fine hoppy beers, and their Red is no exception. Rich and flavorful with good balance and complexity makes this a beer to look forward to year after year.

4.46/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

bright amber/copper color, surprisingly full and long-lasting head.
aroma is heavily caramelized/toffee that is not quite hidden by the heavily citric tones of ample american hops. Great smelling beer.
Great tasting beer too. I briefly wonder if it might be too sweet, not quite cloying, without the ample hop kick, but quickly set this aside as I thank the brewers for the way it turned out. Paler malts show through more in the flavor than just the dark caramel, giving a nice depth to the flavor. Bitterness is just sharp enough and lingers just long enough into the aftertaste, again showcasing the various citrus fruits with perhaps a bit of pine.
A little bit sticky, otherwise the medium body is great and the carb, on the low side of medium allows for quickly draining the glass and demanding another.
Extremely drinkable, and I find myself having it with almost any meal. Time for another!

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12oz bottle to Pint Glass. Bottled stamped 4/26/11.

A - Beers poured a perfectly clear cherry wood color. Monstrous head with intense 2.5 head with excellent retention and huge lacing.

S - Monstor blend of rich malt tones and hops. The bottle names American hops. I detected earthy and citrus hops on the aroma. Also prevelant is a nice blend of rich roasted malts.

T - Flavor starts with an extremely pleasant mix of earthy tones of hops with a hint of citrus. I really enjoyed the blend of malt characteristics of roast, toast, and definately biscuit.

M - Medium bodied that coats the palete with a rich creamy flavor.

D - Extremely.

I like how Odell's has transitioned from the Extra Special Red to the current offering. I don't know if it's true that they adjust the recipe from year to year but I really enjoy the hops character with a nice complex malt blend with this year's Red. I a cannot name a better Red Ale. Very nice. Highly recommended.

4.49/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a perfect red/amber color, with a nice head and just a bit of cloudiness (as I like it). Smell is delicious hops, but not overpowering. The taste is the same. They nailed the maltiness a red ale should have and then kicked the hops up a bit too. Hop profile is more like an American IPA. It's really tasty! Mouthfeel is great, perhaps a bit overcarbonated, but not much. This is one of the best American amber/red ale's I've had and another really impressive brew from Odell! I wish I could get their stuff regularly!

thought to myself that I wanted to drink a red ale tonight, so I reached in the fridge and grabbed this.

Best by 6/15/11, drank 7/25/2011

A-Good red color with great head retention

S-very hoppy. Just what i was hoping for. More on the lines of piney but some nice citrus there as well. Little bit leading to the malty side but I cannot complain as i heeded the bottle dates

T-Alot like it smells. Nice malt backbone with a little hint of hops on the way down

M-medium body and very smooth

O- one of my favorite reds. My glass was gone in no time

This just goes to show you the forgiveness i will give a beer if it is bottle dated. the hops started to fade but it is MY Fault that I drank past expiration, therefore I rated it on what its original qualities would have been
