3.78/5  rDev -7.1%

Dark ginger and cloud depths with a slight off white hat of bubbs...

The aroma brings some fruit to the nose, peaches dance with figs, citrus grapefruit mostly though, some pine hops character, nice and aromatic

Hops hit the palate in a medium strength struggle with the malts; a decent balance. Deeper down I can get some pine on the back of my tongue, nice. A little viney.

Light medium body with an interesting mixed bubble carbonation.

I would recommend this as a good red, not fantastic, but good. Odell's does a decent job most times and this fits that category. If they could boost the flavors I would be a huge fan.

Had a glass of this one on tap this afternoon at the Odell Brewery in Fort Collins. Nice aroma here, citrus hops and sweet malt. On the palate, this one is fairly medium bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, caramel, sweet malt, spruce and milk chocolate.

3.78/5  rDev -7.1%

12oz bottle poured into my Sweetwater pint glass. Best by: 4/28/11.

Pours a clear dark amber with a thick finger-width beige head on top. Good retention; lots of sticky lace on the glass. The nose is bursting with fresh citrus, pine needles, herbs. Very fresh-smelling. I dig it.

The mouth is moderately full. Good heft to it, but drinkable still. There's a bit of a hop smack at the onset, but this flavor is fleeting and short-lived. There's not a lot of depth to this one. Mild sweetness on the finish. Bready. This is a stellar drinkable beer, but I thought aspects of it could be more pronounced. It's not a palate-torcher, which is fine, but there needs to be a bit more "pop" to the flavor. Still, I could see myself having this again and again. Good beer.

3.78/5  rDev -7.1%

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass (half pint, half snifter)
From: Wilbur’s Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo.
Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99
Purchased: May 2, 2013
Consumed: May 3, 2013
Misc.: Best by June 26, 2013

Poured a dark red clear color with one finger of khaki tan head that dissipated quickly. Average sporadic lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention, surprising considering how fast the head disappeared.

Smelled a surprising whiff of floral hops to start. Also got some nutty malts, buttery malts and some light caramel malts.

Tasted floral hops, buttery malts and nutty malts for the most part. Hops are the best part here.

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly bitter finish.

This beer had its moments but I think something was just a bit off. That being said, I’d probably give it another try.

3.79/5  rDev -6.9%

Pours a rich mahogany, slight haze but still pretty clear, finger and a half of off white head, nice lacing

Smell is earthy resiness hops, citrusy undertones, some melon like sweetness, caramel and bready malts come through nicely

Taste is dank with resinous hop, sweet caramel malt, bready biscuit, there are some fruity hop flavors but they land in the darker fruits, apple, melons. Sweet malt on the finish, maybe a touch of a metallic flavor

Mouthfeel is medium full, average carbonation, slight dryness but not much.

Interesting take on a "Red IPA", I do not know that this is really a ipa, more of a hoppy amber but either way it is tasty. Glad to have tried it but I will stick to there regular IPA in the future.

3.8/5  rDev -6.6%

When it escapes the bottle there is an immediate but fleeting air of spiky pine which morphs into a maltiness as attention is focused away on its rick mahoganoy brown body and light yellowy tan 1/4 inch head. No real beading but there is fizz but the head manages to stick in there. Some long reasonably appetising earthy bitterness, some edge and some density and juice before ending back to a more lively civil dry earth.
Doesn't really become fully intergrated and remains a bit all over the place. Could do with more definition and precision but still delivers some impact though not as much as I would hope.

So far this brewery hasn't dissappointed.
Nice amber color with dark red with brown and gold. Initially smaller head, but great stamina that at about 1/2 way began to show markings with each drink.
Complex hop aroma with some citrus and some flowery quality. Apparent malt background.
Flavor matches aroma in complexity of hop profile. Malt backing more apparent and hints at some sweetness. Adequately dry finish.
Some creaminess from head shows in flavor. Moderately light body.
This is good, but not quite as impressive as the others I've had. I've noted that some hoppy beers fit the winter and others the summer, and I think this fits the later better (for some reason).

A: Slightly hazy amber, frothy light tan head. Clumpy, sticky lacing down the glass.

S: Clean, sweet malt smell. Traces of pine and slight nuttiness. Nice smell...

T: Dry, slighty acidic malt taste but hops outbalance it right away. Hop flavor is pleasant, very woodsy/pine, hop oil. I really like the malt sweetness I get, but the hop flavors pretty much make the taste of this beer.

M: I like the body, smooth mouthfeel, not too carbonated.

D: Pretty hoppy for the typical red ale, but pretty easy to drink. Bought a six pack of this stuff, and I will easily be able to finish it off.

3.83/5  rDev -5.9%

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint. Inch of light tan head. Quick to recede, but leaves a solid sticky lace on the way down. Color is a dark and clear coppery red.

Smell is very hoppy. Fruity citrus and wood resin. Mildly sweet malt is hinted at. Taste is initially sweet and tart citrus with a little piny. The malt character doesn't quite balance out the hops. As it warms there is a little more balance. Finishes with a wood resin aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy with a solid body. Carbonation is prickly at times. Not really what I was expecting in a red ale. Not bad, just took me by surprise.
