4/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

When it escapes the bottle there is an immediate but fleeting air of spiky pine which morphs into a maltiness as attention is focused away on its rick mahoganoy brown body and light yellowy tan 1/4 inch head. No real beading but there is fizz but the head manages to stick in there. Some long reasonably appetising earthy bitterness, some edge and some density and juice before ending back to a more lively civil dry earth.
Doesn't really become fully intergrated and remains a bit all over the place. Could do with more definition and precision but still delivers some impact though not as much as I would hope.

Bottle enjoyed in Estes Park, CO...quite stunning. The beer pours deep amber/mahogany with a well-made head of sticky bubbles. The aroma is pine and herbal grassiness with just a hint of brown sugar peeking through. Flavor favors malt more with caramel, shortbread, and biscuit. Hop flavor and bitterness is still firm with another hit of pine, some citrus, and an earthy element that separates it from other big American reds. Slightly resinous, oily mouthfeel along with the pine makes this perfect for a spring evening in the Rocky Mountains.

Odell Red Ale

Appearance: dark amber, medium head, and good lacing.

Smell: grapefruit citrus and hops.

Taste: rich malts, whole hops, and a hint of citrus.

Mouthfeel: medium and slightly malty.

Overall:
This is a nice brew. The balance is very good. I was surprised not to get a strong citrus flavor like the aroma suggested.

3.65/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- Poured a 1 finger head with medium to poor retention. Plenty of lacing left on the glass and the body had haze for dayz.

S- Had a sweet smell up front. Hops, a bit of pine, a hint of grapefruit, caramel and honey.

T- Hoppy start with a caramel/honey backbone. Small detection of grapefruit but it hides in there pretty well.

M- Excellent. Medium to low carbonation and an oily, textured and well bodied mouthfeel.

O- Pretty good. I could see how this would be an excellent beer to pair with some ribs or a pork chop.
