Odell Red Ale
Appearance: dark amber, medium head, and good lacing.
Smell: grapefruit citrus and hops.
Taste: rich malts, whole hops, and a hint of citrus.
Mouthfeel: medium and slightly malty.
This is a nice brew. The balance is very good. I was surprised not to get a strong citrus flavor like the aroma suggested.

A- Poured a 1 finger head with medium to poor retention. Plenty of lacing left on the glass and the body had haze for dayz.
S- Had a sweet smell up front. Hops, a bit of pine, a hint of grapefruit, caramel and honey.
T- Hoppy start with a caramel/honey backbone. Small detection of grapefruit but it hides in there pretty well.
M- Excellent. Medium to low carbonation and an oily, textured and well bodied mouthfeel.
O- Pretty good. I could see how this would be an excellent beer to pair with some ribs or a pork chop.

Pours a slightly reddish amber color with 1 finger of white head. Wow, this has a much larger aroma than I was expecting, it almost smells exactly like their IPA. Lots of bright citrus (grapefruit) up front with a strong pine behind it, a touch of caramel malt sweetness at the very end of the aroma. The taste is interesting, the malt presence is much more prominent and clashes ever so slightly with the hops. The mouthfeel is very smooth and drinkable. Overall this is a good brew but I prefer their IPA. The hop profiles were very similar but I thought they matched better to the dryness of the IPA vs. the maltiness of this beer. Still worth seeking out especially if you like maltier IPA's or Hoppy Reds.

A nearly clear, red-tinted amber body with a smallish white head that settles down fairly quickly. Spotty lacing.
Nice enough aroma, citrus hops and caramel malt well balanced. Touches of pineapple, grapefruit, pine resins. Flavor follows suit, prominent hoppiness (again mostly citrus with subtle pine notes) offset by moderately sweet caramel malt.
Body is medium as is the carbonation. A bit creamy, with a dry finish and a little bit of lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.
Another nice hoppy beer from Odell; this one, along with Lagunitas' Imperial Red (and others) seem to be retorts to the wild success of Troegs' Nugget Nectar. Not quite as good as the original but pretty damn tasty. I am continually impressed with the quality of Odell's beers.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.
Pours a nice perfect amber color with some slight darkness and haze to it. There is a nice 0.5 inch head that forms and has some nice dense bubbles with some off-white color. The head recedes to a nice ring around the glass.
Nose starts off with some nice sweet malt that is combined and plays well with some nice grassy herbal hop notes. Nice bready notes that are also complimented by some spicy piney hop. Herbal notes with some slight citrus is perceived as well. Aroma is a bit light.
The taste confirms the nose. Very bready and delicious. Fresh baked grainy and slightly sweet bread. Very nice. The bread is complimented well by spicy hop resin notes. Some nice grass and pine as well as slight orange and tangerine notes in the middle. The flavor is really nice and drinkable. A solid American Amber with good malt backbone and nice refreshing hop notes. Crisp and clean with a nice earthy and bitter finish.
This a good amber. Very crisp and clean with nice bready notes. Overall a good refreshing example of the style. Good malt backbone with great floral hop kicks.

best before June 21, 2012
A: Clear red with great retention and lacing.
S: Citric, piney, resinous hops and a touch of sweet malt.
T: Follows the nose. Hops with a good malt presence and a decent finish. Well balanced, but I wonder if the hops pop more when it's very fresh
M: Medium without too much carbonation.
O: This is a flavorful yet balanced and drinkable beer, but at 6.5% abv, I expect a bit more.

Pours a dark ruby with a thumbs width beige head. Nice lacing. Wow... what a wonderful wonderful aroma. Sweet and hoppy and incredibly balanced between the two. Nectarine, grapefruit, a little pine. I could just sit and sniff this all night I think. Flavor is just as good. The grapefruit and pine seem to hit you in the forefront but its balanced extremely well by the malt backbone which provides some delicious toasty graininess and caramel sweetness, with a touch of some berry in there. A nice silky mouthfeel with an appropriate level of activity from the carbonation. Medium bodied. Overall, my favorite red ale. Love the marriage between malt and hops in this one. Odell with a grand slam.

A random single I grabbed on a recent trip to the US.
A - Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a rudy red hue, solid finger of soapy white head, solid retention and nice spotty lacing.
S - Sweet citrus hops, surprisingly resiny, hints of sugary maple and a touch of caramel on the finish.
T - Nice sweet citrus hops off the top, nicely balanced with a rich caramel malt backbone, touch of resiny hops linger alongside hints of citrus rind and pineapple.
M - Medium bodied, smooth and touch of dryness on the finish.
O - Incredibly tasty red ale, solid hop presence but nicely balanced with the caramel malts. Highly recommended and incredibly drinkable. This stuff on tap, I would imagine, would be irresistible.
