This poured out as a beautiful clear red color with a cream colored head on top. The lacing is good as well as the retention. The smell of the beer has a really nice hoppy pine aroma coming off of it with a slight sweet toasted aroma in there too,. The taste of the beer is moderately sweet up front with a very nice bitter finish. The mouthfeel is sharp but remains highly drinkable. Good carbonation and body. Overall it's a very good brew. Really enjoy this one.

A cloudy, copper colour with an eggshell head. The beer smells citrus-hoppy and sweet, with a slight malt scent. The beer tastes like citrus and hops right away, almost like a grapefruit flavour. It finishes clean, with a slight sweetness to it.

Would I buy it again? Definitely!

4.13/5  rDev +1.5%

Poured from the bottle into a stemless wine glass.

A real nice orange amber body, hints of red on the edges, and slow rising carbonation goes up. Head is a clumpy off tan, that has major retention and hang on everything. A real aggresive and impressive looking brew.

Nose brings a bounty of ripping malts and hops. Ripping grain action, with a hint of light toast. The hops have a little bit of earth quality, but get a bit herbal, making the malt even sweeter almost caramel dominant. Either way it's impressive.

Palate turns it down a bit though from everything anticipated. Light malts with some good doughy like density, ripping grain is turned down a bit, without the big husky quality. Hop angle seems a little lost, but brings some lingering sweetness of tea and herbs on the finish.

Overall though it's still an enjoyable brew from these guys and I can see myself drinking a lot of this very casually.

Beautiful deep red color with a great thick tan head, which dissipates quickly leaving a thick lacing. Smells like an IPA, citrus hops with a small amount of malts breaking through. I'm a little worried as the bottle promises a Red Ale, not an IPA. After tasting, I'm quite torn on this one; it tastes excellent but is a bit more an IPA. Bright citrus and piney hops up front followed by the malty bready kick I was looking for. Expertly carbonated and smooth.

What can I say? It's fantastic if not completely true to style.

Best By: 4/27/13
This is fresh, first batch of the year

A – Pours a strong 2" head, settles down to A light amber pillow that stays throughout, leaving good lace.

S – Hops, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, this beer also adds in clover, honey and cinnamon, great winter time notes; however they are greatly subdued.

T – Nice hop character, great balance with the malt however. The clover honey comes through again, there is a nice sweet malt balance here, but it is not overdone.

M – Just about perfect, smooth, velvet, this is exceptional, if anything it has a short finish.

O – Wonderful beer, too bad it is only a seasonal offering, but it just makes this beer that much better. Perfect balance, brings subdued local winter spice to a nice and hoppy beer. A+ Odell.
