4.6/5 rDev +13%
Tasted on 3/4/11. Reviewed from notes:
A: Copper red color with a half finger of head
S: sweet caramel w/ some hops in the background
T: Lots of tasty caramel malt sweetness but definitely hopepd a little more than your typical red ale. Can't quite pick out what hops they are.
M: Good carbonation gives this beer a nice thinner feel
O: Even as it warms this 6.5% isn't noticable. The extra hops help to put this beer into the elite category of Red Ales. Wonderful lighter style beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Looks like the "best by" date is 7/ 7 /11.
Appearance- Clear crimson with a nice, tight head. Lacing is standard to good. 4/5
Smell- Fruity hop character with a beefy caramel malt backbone. 4/5
Taste- Bitterness is first and foremost. All the way through the sip. This is the first beer (I think) that I can taste a bready character. After the sip it leaves a sweet stickiness on your lips. 4/5
Mouthfeel- It gets a little thicker as it warms, but otherwise it is a medium bodied beer. 4/5
Overall- Odell does good stuff. This is yet, another solid beer from them. 4/5

This January to April seasonal brew pours a rich, ruby red with a creamy white head, and about one inch of frothy foam. A surprising IPA like aroma is created with piney and fruity notes, as well as a little biscuity malt hints. A lot of the nose is noticeable on the pallet, with biscuity and toasty malt sweetness giving way to quite a wallop of citrusy (grapefruit and orange) and piney hop bitterness. A medium-light amount of carbonation is augmented by a medium body that finishes a little spicy and sticky finish. For our money, Odell's is executing the beauty of the hop better then anyone else in Fort Collins.

Purchased this one just out of curiousity, I had not heard or seen anything about it.
A - deep ruby red, almost brown w/ a decent sized tan head, w/ plenty of lacing to keep tack of my sips/gulps on the way down.
S - citrus and floral hops primarily, with some caramel malt in the backround
T - besides delic-ious-o you ask?? aggressive hop bitterness gives just a little to make way for a malty middle featuring some nice toffee and caramel notes, giveing it an almost nutty flavor. and closes w/ a nice hop bitterness.
MF - full, low carbonation, makes it a bit heavy
D - the flavor makes it a joy to drink, only thing is the abv, is a bit too high for this to be a sessionable beer, but i could definately kick back quite a few
this is a full bodied, aggresively hopped up American amber, full of flavor and bitterness w/ enough malt to give it some balance. this beer reminds me of an esb w/ more of a kick
i previously didn't care too much for ambers, i now see them in a new light and highly recommend this beer to both red fans, and hop-heads alike

12-oz bottle into Samuel Smith "Tulip" pint glass
A - 3 fingers of thick khaki head over an attractive cloudy, semi-transparent, dark red-orange body; great lace on the glass
S - delightfully hoppy; grapefruit, grass, bubblegum
T - same grassy, citrus hops from the nose dominate the flavor; a decent amount of sweetness and toasty malt is also present for an excellent balance
M - medium body with medium carbonation
O - This brew is very drinkable and is an excellent ale for any hop lover.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass
Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy off white head. Head recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Color is amber with a slight reddish hue. Mild streaming carbonation.
Aroma: citrus hops dominate the nose with bread dough some toffee in the background. Mouthfeel: light and frothy mouthfeel, slightly sticky, with a dry finish.
Flavor: initial sweet flavors of bread dough and caramel give way to citrus and pine hops and hop oil through the middle and finish.
Overall: another fine offering from Odell’s.

Bottle into pint glass
A - Clear, deep amber with touches of brown/red/burgundy, 1 finger cream head with moderate dissipation 4
S - Piney hop scent made it to my nose before I sniffed, and it shows malt background as well. Soft florals, my mind is wandering to a Ricola scent. 4
T - Malt forward with slight vanilla, moderately bitter finish, a bit of caramel on the finish/after, not the hop bitterness I expected from the scent, nicely balanced 4
M - somewhat musty to me but not in a bad way, fairly bold presence that does not ever get chewy, great carbonation from first sip to last 4
D - For what I consider a pretty bold beer the drinkability is not compromised 4
I like this beer and think it would be well received even in a large group situation. A little something for everyone. Red Ale is an all around solid selection.

4.53/5 rDev +11.3%
Appearance - Maple-ruby in color with a tan head.
Smell - Sugary citrus hops, slightly smoke.
Taste - Very nutty flavor with a subtle kick of hops. The malt still tastes a bit sour, but it detracts very little from the overall.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with a somewhat high level of carbonation.
Drinkability - They did it again. I hate ambers/reds... but Odell's has now made a second one that I like a lot. The nutty character is what seals it, but this beer is mostly balanced, with a slight edge towards the hops. I am loving it, and I will be buying this again. And again.
