Picked this one up at the COOP today.. the brew pours a clear reddish/amber... decent off white head with okay lacing and retention.
Nose is good toasty malt and light caramel.. orange zest hoppiness..
Very nice hoppy American amber... all elements punch out and still meld well... great citrus zest.. sorta pithy... sorta dry with a great malt profile.. bits of caramel and nice dry toast... very balanced.
Body is medium/light with appropriate carbonation.. long toasty finish with tangerine zest.

back and better than ever (or so i hear)... pours a not fully red and perfectly clear amber color lighter than expected. nose is piney hops and a dusty caramely red malt. more hoppy than sweet, and in fact more hoppy than most red ales. taste is epic, huge depth and tons of hops for the genre. agressive and lasting. just short of an ipa, or rather, much too much going on to be just an ipa, like drinking a the redwood forest. this beer rocks. mouthfeel is way up there, fuller bodied and strong, but drinkable like no other. what a session! odell is blowing my mind every new one i try. wow. this is a fantastic early spring seasonal

Odell Red: I am a big Odell fan, and this seasonal does not disappoint. The body is a deep leather red in color. There is no haze, but it is dark enough that it is hard to see through. A big off-white head forms on top, and leaves a nice lacing during your drinking experience. The Red provides a big aroma as well, with lots of flowery hop notes. There is a firm malt base to the flavor, and a big hoppy finish. This beer is closer to an IPA than a traditional red ale, so depending on your tastes you may really like it, or be disappointed. I liked it. Also, it has more carbonation than most brews of this style, which gives it a lighter feel. Very enjoyable.

Copper ale with an off white head that falls with a nice lace. The American amber ale has a great nose with lots of toffee, caramel and strong hop spice. Big malt shows up in the taste w/o some of the other flavors in the nose. Hop bite is light but pleasant. Overall, a nice amber ale that gives the senses a nice run for the money and is still very drinkable. Might not buy for home again, but would gladly get a pint in a bar for a refreshing change of pace or a great go to beer for a place with a limited selection.

This beer pours a beautiful copper red with a white head.
Aroma is strong of citrus, grapefruit grass with a slight honey sweet maltiness in the background.
The taste starts out with a mouth coating citrusy and pine bitterness, then comes a brief interruption of a biscuity honey malt sweetness, then ends out with a dry grassy and citrusy finish.
Aside from the hop bitterness, this beer goes down real smooth.
Overall, not as good as Extra Special Red, but this is an excellent american red

A: A cloudy, dirty copper in color with a finger of off-white head..nice texture. Leaves a lot of soapy lacing on all edges of the glass with a faint cap, but lots of large bubbles around the edges.
S: A fair amount of hops, but pretty well balanced by caramel, bready malts. Hops seems to be mostly citrus, but I think there's a bit of pine in here also.
T: Mirrors the smell. Citrus and piney hops with sweet caramel and bready malts providing support.
M: Medium bodied, kind of oily.
O: Not the best red ale I've ever had, but to be fair, it's a little past its best by date of 6/15/11. I would really like to try this again fresh and rescore.
