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.

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

Appearance - Dark Hazy Orange with no carbonation. Good amount of lacing on the side. Good head retention on the side

Smell - Citrus Hops, Caramel, Yeasts, and Malts. Fairly simple, but fairly rich

Taste - Piney Hops, Caramel, Yeasts, with a fairly strong malty backbone. Blurs the line between Red Ale and IPA

Mouthfeel - Light Bodied and moderate carbonation with the end result being rather crisp.

Overall - I'd feel comfortable calling it an IPA rather than a Red Ale, but whatever you call it, it's still a pleasure to drink.
