This is an amazing brew from Odells in Colorado it smells great reminding me of the aroma of a glass of Guava juice that i used to have when I was a kid in other words it has a very fruity smell.I had taken it out of the fridge and poured it from the bottle into a pilsner glass, this beer isn't the best too cold as i first found the cold numbs the flavor out and all you are left with is a very bitter taste with no flavor. Let this beer sit in your mouth and warm up and you will find a wonderful bouquet of flavor with a taste full of hops, pine, and that fruity flavor you could smell. Overall i was very pleased with my purchase and very happy I still have 5 of them left in my fridge.

This January to April seasonal brew pours a rich, ruby red with a creamy white head, and about one inch of frothy foam. A surprising IPA like aroma is created with piney and fruity notes, as well as a little biscuity malt hints. A lot of the nose is noticeable on the pallet, with biscuity and toasty malt sweetness giving way to quite a wallop of citrusy (grapefruit and orange) and piney hop bitterness. A medium-light amount of carbonation is augmented by a medium body that finishes a little spicy and sticky finish. For our money, Odell's is executing the beauty of the hop better then anyone else in Fort Collins.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours red-amber with a huge foamy cream colored head that laces nicely throughout. Hoppy aroma of citrus and pine, balanced by caramel and bready malts. Flavor suggests the same as the aroma. Medium body with moderate carbonation, finishing slightly bitter and dry. A decent red ale. I actually liked this better the second time around on tap!

A - Pours a dark ruby red color with three finger head. Lacing clings to side of the glass as head fades. Like spider webs on the glass.

S - Pine, citrus, grapefruit, orange.

T - Mild malty backbone up front followed by a wave of piney and citrus hops.

M - Light to medium body with good carbonation.

O - Another good beer from Odell. This is sort of a cross between a pale ale and IPA. Has a nice sort of fresh hop bite to it but has more of a malt backbone than a traditional IPA. Great spring seasonal.

M: Standard drinkable mouthfeel with some bones
O: Really good beer pick it up and drink it, more of an IPA than a malty red

Pours a cloudy, light amber red with a big tan head that lingers and laces.

Smells woody, earthy, and herbally with notes of pine, sweetness, and some cattyness.

Taste is up front sweet with herbal and spicy notes that fades into a more fruity and sweet middle that ends on a slightly bitter and caramel finish that morphs into a bready, almost metallic/copper taste. Methinks Simcoe is at play. Interesting and different, but not particularly to my taste.

Medium body with medium to low carbonation works well.

This is a fine red ale that is heavily herbal/spicy/and piney with catty and sweet notes.

12oz bottle poured into Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Best by date is 5/3/12 so I assume this is pretty darn fresh. Thanks to eclipse54 for this one!

A: Pours a pretty reddish orange amber color. Initially about a finger and a half of reddish hued tan head. Disappeared fairly quick, but left some lacing trials.

S: Even through the dark malt bill than an IPA, I get some of those fruity hop aromas. Some grapefruit and other citrus. There are some pine hints as well. A little spicy hint from the malts as well.

T: I get a little bit on the tip of the tongue of piney hops initially. Maybe a little touch of that grapefruity flavor that I smelled. Then you get this mild spicy sweet malt kick in the middle of the mouth. It's very pleasant but sort of overpowers all the hop character. The close is crisp and dry and leaves you wanting more. Maybe some residual piney notes linger.

M: This is a medium bodied beer. Good seasonal.

O: Still have yet to meet an Odell beer that I don't like. This isn't my favorite but it's a solid beer for sure.

Damn, Odell hits another out of the ballpark.

Appearance: Red, white head, poor retention, minimal lacing.

Smell: Nice yummy hop profile. If you've had an Odell beer before you'll recognize this hop aroma. Malt backbone is kicked up a notch but the real meat and potatoes lie in the hops.

Taste: Follows the nose, not overly bitter though. Very pleasant and sweeter than the nose led me to believe this brew would be.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and good amount of carbonation.

Overall: Just another great beer from Odell. Did you expect something different?

Thanks to salukialum for this extra.

This pours medium amber with a nice frothy white head that sticks around and leaves good lace. On the nose there is a big pine component with orange peel type citrus further back. In the mouth there is instant bitterness but there is a hint of doughy malt to smooth things a bit. I wouldn't call this refined but it's not a fire-breathing hop monster either. The body is medium with a medium bitter finish.

Overall, this is a nice, hoppy amber, worth seeking out or including as an extra.

On-tap @ Taste of Tops in Tempe, AZ.

A: Deep red with shades of brown. Good sticky lace. A sexy-looking beer.

S: Floral, fruity malt with a hoppy backbone.

T: The balance of hops and malt is fantastic. Hoppy, fruity and delicious. Great with the spicy Thai food I had.

M: Smooth as a beer can be. Very easy to drink.

O: So balanced. Drink this!

Tangy! I totally get the grapefruit flavor everyone mentions on here. This is a very good red. The hops are all over the place, shaming many a so-called "ipa" My head didn't retain on this particular pour but it is leaving some nice lacing on the pint glass. The beer smells quite hoppy as well. A nice, easy drinking red that I will definitely come back to in the future.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12oz bottle to Pint Glass. Bottled stamped 4/26/11.

A - Beers poured a perfectly clear cherry wood color. Monstrous head with intense 2.5 head with excellent retention and huge lacing.

S - Monstor blend of rich malt tones and hops. The bottle names American hops. I detected earthy and citrus hops on the aroma. Also prevelant is a nice blend of rich roasted malts.

T - Flavor starts with an extremely pleasant mix of earthy tones of hops with a hint of citrus. I really enjoyed the blend of malt characteristics of roast, toast, and definately biscuit.

M - Medium bodied that coats the palete with a rich creamy flavor.

D - Extremely.

I like how Odell's has transitioned from the Extra Special Red to the current offering. I don't know if it's true that they adjust the recipe from year to year but I really enjoy the hops character with a nice complex malt blend with this year's Red. I a cannot name a better Red Ale. Very nice. Highly recommended.
