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!

This beer pours a clear bright red color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes quickly into a small cap of lacing lingers for a while. The aroma is a great balance of malt and hop. There is a ton of grapefruit and a ton of caramel. The taste is maltier up from with a solid bitterness coming through in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this is a really good beer. It is very flavorful and aromatic, however, the spectrum of those flavors and aromatics isn't that deep. Still I would happily drink this beer again.

Thanks to salukialum for this extra.

This pours medium amber with a nice frothy white head that sticks around and leaves good lace. On the nose there is a big pine component with orange peel type citrus further back. In the mouth there is instant bitterness but there is a hint of doughy malt to smooth things a bit. I wouldn't call this refined but it's not a fire-breathing hop monster either. The body is medium with a medium bitter finish.

Overall, this is a nice, hoppy amber, worth seeking out or including as an extra.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Looks like the "best by" date is 7/ 7 /11.

Appearance- Clear crimson with a nice, tight head. Lacing is standard to good. 4/5

Smell- Fruity hop character with a beefy caramel malt backbone. 4/5

Taste- Bitterness is first and foremost. All the way through the sip. This is the first beer (I think) that I can taste a bready character. After the sip it leaves a sweet stickiness on your lips. 4/5

Mouthfeel- It gets a little thicker as it warms, but otherwise it is a medium bodied beer. 4/5

Overall- Odell does good stuff. This is yet, another solid beer from them. 4/5

This is a solid red ale, with a pronounced citrus hops characteristic.
Pours a semi-bright amber/caramel color with a just off-white head. Looks pretty darn good.
Hops up front in the nose. Citrus and slight metallic, a faint malty biscuit.
A hop forward flavor. Citrus with some of that metallic coming through. touch of alcohol. Some softness towards the end. As it warms this softness introduces a nice maltiness and bread. A good balance towards the end.
Easy drinking. Solid.
