3.8/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Got this as an extra from krayziejman. Thanks, man! 12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe glass. Drink by date of 4/26/11.

A: Mostly translucent ruby red body topped by a one-finger off white head. Head fades quickly leaving a little bit of lacing and a solid ring.

S: Very bright hop aroma. Pretty sure this bottle is nice and fresh. Malt doesn't have much to say in the aroma, but it's generally appealing. Only moderately bitter.

T: Surprisingly, there's not much of the hop presence from the nose apparent here. There's definitely an aftertaste on here that doesn't seem quite right to me... unpleasant. Makes a claim to be aggressively hopped, but I feel like it lacks a proper blending of the hop flavors and the result is less than spectacular. Malt bill is unoffensive but also unspectacular.

M: Slightly watery and very highly carbonated, but relatively refreshing. About average for the style.

D: Enh. I could drink this to drink, but I'm not a huge fan overall. The flavor isn't great, which is my main complaint.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A beautiful, opaque, medium red color with a large 1 inch head that retained well throughout out. Nice lacing.

S: Smells of mainly citrusy hops but is well balanced.

T: More on the bitter side but has a nice malty taste.

M: Smooth. Very tasty!

O: Overall its a very nice Red Ale. I haven't found one that I don't like yet! Odells take on this style is very good. I would purchase this one again.
