Props to chugalug06 for sharing this with me as an extra. Thanks Geoff!

Pour is a reddish copper with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is almost non-existent. Nose has some deep malt/breadiness to it.

I'm not much for ambers/reds, and the first taste is a pleasant surprise. Nice and light, great carbonation across the tongue, some drying hop bitterness across an otherwise sweet finish. Didn't take long for me to finish this one, and wish I had a couple more on hand.

A- Bubbly, rocky just-off-tan head which leaves some beautiful lacing around my pint glass. The color is a slightly hazy reddish-brown orange. Slight visible carbonation, a very nice looking brew.

S- Caramelized hops, bitter hops, lightly toasted hops-- a lot of hops in the nose, obviously. Just behind them is a sweet malty backbone-- seamless blending of the two characteristics, it's hard to tell where exactly one ends and the other begins, and that is exceptional craftsmanship in my opinion. Just a tad too much hops for me.

T- Again, a hops forward beer. Despite the inviting and complex smell, the taste is surprisingly one-dimensional; flat hops. Metallic aftertaste, where's the counter balancing malt? Just barely any sweetness. Really, there is no depth here. Wtf, Odells? No much strength of flavor either; tastes watered down. Lacking, this beer needs to be brought up to par.

M- Like water; thin, no tensile strength noticeable. Decent coating, however, and no lingering aftertaste unpleasantness.

D- Eh. This doesn't taste that good. How can I drink a beer that doesn't taste good? I didn't buy it to look at or smell. It doesn't taste bad, it's just not good. Low drinkability in that case.

Pours a beautiful dark red color with a nice sized cream colored head. Good head retention. Aroma is mostly hops, lots of pine and some citrus as well. There is a noticeable bit of malt in the background.

Taste is very hoppy. Very good pine and citrus flavors here. Some light caramel, and biscuity malt. Medium body that was well cabonated. A slightly dry finish. Very easy drinking. A great red ale. I will purchase again.

Odell's red ale came out of the bottle an awesome red color with a fluffy off white head.

The aroma was very hoppy but present were notes of caramel and maybe some toffee.

The beer starts sweet and finishes bitter but is not very memorable in either department. This is not helped by a watery mouth feel.

The beer is pretty average overall and there are many many red ales to go for if you are looking for something impressive in the style.
