Pours a cloudy, light amber red with a big tan head that lingers and laces.

Smells woody, earthy, and herbally with notes of pine, sweetness, and some cattyness.

Taste is up front sweet with herbal and spicy notes that fades into a more fruity and sweet middle that ends on a slightly bitter and caramel finish that morphs into a bready, almost metallic/copper taste. Methinks Simcoe is at play. Interesting and different, but not particularly to my taste.

Medium body with medium to low carbonation works well.

This is a fine red ale that is heavily herbal/spicy/and piney with catty and sweet notes.

Damn, Odell hits another out of the ballpark.

Appearance: Red, white head, poor retention, minimal lacing.

Smell: Nice yummy hop profile. If you've had an Odell beer before you'll recognize this hop aroma. Malt backbone is kicked up a notch but the real meat and potatoes lie in the hops.

Taste: Follows the nose, not overly bitter though. Very pleasant and sweeter than the nose led me to believe this brew would be.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and good amount of carbonation.

Overall: Just another great beer from Odell. Did you expect something different?

A real nice hoppy red! If you like those, go try some out. 6.5% abv. I have to say that I'd expect some other flavors from a red aside from just hops. But, I do like hoppy reds. Just seems to need something else, or less hops to let other things come through.

A - Nice foamy head. Rich red color, clear. Some lacing and lasting ring and surface foam.

S - Full hop aroma, really nice. Smells like I might be about to have an IPA. Orange Peel. Just the slightest hint of something deeper maybe? But the hops are prominent.

T - Full hop flavor profile. Really nice. I would like a little more grain or toasty flavor maybe. Aside from the color, this could be an IPA. I'm not getting really anything else here. There might be some other flavors there, but the hops are covering it up. Though that's probably intentional, I'd just assume get an IPA. This is great though if you want some hops. I'd just like one more flavor in there.

M - Nice low amount of carbonation. Clean.

D - It's good.

Pours a slightly reddish amber color with 1 finger of white head. Wow, this has a much larger aroma than I was expecting, it almost smells exactly like their IPA. Lots of bright citrus (grapefruit) up front with a strong pine behind it, a touch of caramel malt sweetness at the very end of the aroma. The taste is interesting, the malt presence is much more prominent and clashes ever so slightly with the hops. The mouthfeel is very smooth and drinkable. Overall this is a good brew but I prefer their IPA. The hop profiles were very similar but I thought they matched better to the dryness of the IPA vs. the maltiness of this beer. Still worth seeking out especially if you like maltier IPA's or Hoppy Reds.
