Pours a rich mahogany, slight haze but still pretty clear, finger and a half of off white head, nice lacing

Smell is earthy resiness hops, citrusy undertones, some melon like sweetness, caramel and bready malts come through nicely

Taste is dank with resinous hop, sweet caramel malt, bready biscuit, there are some fruity hop flavors but they land in the darker fruits, apple, melons. Sweet malt on the finish, maybe a touch of a metallic flavor

Mouthfeel is medium full, average carbonation, slight dryness but not much.

Interesting take on a "Red IPA", I do not know that this is really a ipa, more of a hoppy amber but either way it is tasty. Glad to have tried it but I will stick to there regular IPA in the future.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Runoff's liquid portion comes out a nice hearty dusk sunset red with excellent clarity. Sort of an orange/vanilla creamcicle colored head with various sized bubbles, with crazy good lacing to it. The suds cling to the glass like a virus taking over (I guess that's a weird example).

Smell is good. Citrus (clementine, tangerine, and not quite ripe blood orange with no pith)and tropical melon fruit salad are not aggressive, but they are the first aromas to greet your nose right out of the gate. Nice malty aromatics complement the hops as well, sweet buscuity aromas.

Good tasting beer. It's well balanced, but hop forward and most likely designed to be. Nice same above mentioned citrus/melon profile, and again, it's not very potent, but the one of the things that really stands out right away. The only difference is you can get a little more bitter citrus peel. The bready characteristics are there again too, like browned biscuit crumbs, and I don't think it's there, but I have this rye(ish) taste in the back. Overall it's a great tasting any time of the year beer.

Mouthfeel is good. Heavy medium body, like a nice hearty amber ale. Like most everything I've had from ODell, this has a very clean fresh and close to crisp feel. Soft but strong enough carbonation level with excellent balance. Fresh feel that's got a natural sweetness leading to a nice clean bitter finish that's just the right amount of dry. Really drinkable, a great flavorful beer that's very easy drinking. Another nice brew from ODell. Huge props to Geoff for sending me this one, thanks buddy!
