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.

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!

thought to myself that I wanted to drink a red ale tonight, so I reached in the fridge and grabbed this.

Best by 6/15/11, drank 7/25/2011

A-Good red color with great head retention

S-very hoppy. Just what i was hoping for. More on the lines of piney but some nice citrus there as well. Little bit leading to the malty side but I cannot complain as i heeded the bottle dates

T-Alot like it smells. Nice malt backbone with a little hint of hops on the way down

M-medium body and very smooth

O- one of my favorite reds. My glass was gone in no time

This just goes to show you the forgiveness i will give a beer if it is bottle dated. the hops started to fade but it is MY Fault that I drank past expiration, therefore I rated it on what its original qualities would have been
