Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #37 (Feb 2010):

Chestnut red color with a gleaming clarity in the light, the head drops a thick curtain of lace on the glass. Grapefruit hop aroma and a dried grassy, honey-like maltiness rest under the hops. A whole lot of hops here, bitterness is cranked up and the flavor sticks to the palate with citric rind, mint, pine sap and a tropical fruitiness. Malty even with the flexed hoppiness; grassy, toasty and a little sweet. Finish with the last push of hops that does not fade quickly at all.

A bit of a wake-up-style spring seasonal. Odell keeping it true with an old-school hoppy Red Ale.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a clear reddish-brown color with a tan head. The aroma is resiny and piney hops with some caramel malt. The flavor is piney malts with some caramel and bready malts. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice hoppy red ale.

Pours a clear amber color with a tight, white head that leaves big chunks of lacing.

Smells of citrus and caramel.

Tastes of a nice balance of hops and full malts. Caramel and toffee malt leads off with a nice sweetness to it. Hops come in with grapefruit and pine notes. A light bitterness, but well-balanced overall.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a good red.

Bottle into pint glass
A - Clear, deep amber with touches of brown/red/burgundy, 1 finger cream head with moderate dissipation 4
S - Piney hop scent made it to my nose before I sniffed, and it shows malt background as well. Soft florals, my mind is wandering to a Ricola scent. 4
T - Malt forward with slight vanilla, moderately bitter finish, a bit of caramel on the finish/after, not the hop bitterness I expected from the scent, nicely balanced 4
M - somewhat musty to me but not in a bad way, fairly bold presence that does not ever get chewy, great carbonation from first sip to last 4
D - For what I consider a pretty bold beer the drinkability is not compromised 4
I like this beer and think it would be well received even in a large group situation. A little something for everyone. Red Ale is an all around solid selection.
