Poured from a bottle dated 5.29.13 into a pint glass

Pours a very pretty ruby red with about a half inch foam head that stays throughout the duration of enjoying this one. Smells fantastic with a heavy dose of piny hops and some malty sweetness at the end. Tastes quite different than it smells, with the malty sweetness blending quite nicely with the hop presence.

Overall, this beer is one of my favorite offerings from Odell. As I sip on it, I am instantly transported back to my glorious days in Fort Collins as a CSU grad student... This was a beer that I always looked forward to every year, and I always had plenty on hand to share with guests at outdoor events and BBQs. Brings back memories of some of the best times of my life, and for that, I have to give this an obligatory two thumbs up.

Pours a clear, amber color. One inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong hops and some slight sweet malt. Fits the style of an American Amber/Red Ale. Mouth feel is smooth, crisp, and a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong hops throughout (especially in the finish), some earthy malt, and slight sweet malt. Overall, a really easy drinking beer but nothing special.

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!

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!
