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....

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.

4.53/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance - Maple-ruby in color with a tan head.

Smell - Sugary citrus hops, slightly smoke.

Taste - Very nutty flavor with a subtle kick of hops. The malt still tastes a bit sour, but it detracts very little from the overall.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with a somewhat high level of carbonation.

Drinkability - They did it again. I hate ambers/reds... but Odell's has now made a second one that I like a lot. The nutty character is what seals it, but this beer is mostly balanced, with a slight edge towards the hops. I am loving it, and I will be buying this again. And again.

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!
