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.
