Runoff Red – Red IPA (6.5%) - O'Dell Brewing Co. (Colorado)
☆☆☆

App: Deep raspberry pulp red with a slight inclination towards brown. Nice one and a half finger head that retains very well and leaves ample sticky lacing. Slightly hazy, but overall a good looking beer.

Smell: Nose is pretty much all hops with a sort of odd, petroleum like smell lurking in the background. Honestly a little weak on the nose.

Taste: Pretty straightforwardly hoppy and slightly bitter. Hops are earthy, slightly solvent, and a little bit piney. Small hints of biscuit and roasted malts in the background, but they never harmonize with the bitterness of the hops like a world-class IPA. Pleasant, lingering hops bitterness. Doesn't totally wreck your palate with acidity like some IPAs. Could possibly benefit from a little more Caramel malts. Flavors open a little with warming, but don't really evolve. Very sessionable, but not remarkable.

Mouth: Overall a little thin on the body side, carbonation is good and smooth.

Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Snifter. 1/4/14.

A: Slightly hazy amber, frothy light tan head. Clumpy, sticky lacing down the glass.

S: Clean, sweet malt smell. Traces of pine and slight nuttiness. Nice smell...

T: Dry, slighty acidic malt taste but hops outbalance it right away. Hop flavor is pleasant, very woodsy/pine, hop oil. I really like the malt sweetness I get, but the hop flavors pretty much make the taste of this beer.

M: I like the body, smooth mouthfeel, not too carbonated.

D: Pretty hoppy for the typical red ale, but pretty easy to drink. Bought a six pack of this stuff, and I will easily be able to finish it off.

Amber in color with a beautiful tan head.

Hop smell is strong. Notes of caramel and bread.

Has a great malt backbone. Faint bit of alcohol in the finish. A sweet touch of caramel as well.

Mouthfeel is a bit grainy in the finish.

Overall a Good beer.

Got on trade from vasdef42 as an extra, thanks!!

This beer has only 25 reviews and it's #10 for this style...says something huh?

Poured and right off the bat noticed my favorite hop smell, fantastic hop nose and good clear color. Taste matched the smell which is similar to their IPA (LOVE IT) and is very well balanced.

MF and drinkibility are great, if I could get this beer it would be in the fridge all the time! Again, this blows Red Rocket, Green Flash Red, Big Hoppy Monster etc away....

Reviewed from notes on tap at The Blue Door Pub

A- Dark, cloudy, deep red. Head dissipated quickly.

S- Slight malt in the nose not overwhelming nose.

T- Rich, woody malt right on the forefront with plenty of hop to compete for attention.

M- Definitely could have been bigger I would call this a light medium bodied ale.

O- I would order this ale again. I found myself looking for more than what was there which may be because I like bigger ales. Probably not very helpful in this review but it is what it is. Cheers.
