4/5  rDev -1.7%

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.

Runoff Red – Red IPA (6.5%) - O'Dell Brewing Co. (Colorado)
☆☆☆

App: Deep raspberry pulp red with a slight inclination towards brown. Nice one and a half finger head that retains very well and leaves ample sticky lacing. Slightly hazy, but overall a good looking beer.

Smell: Nose is pretty much all hops with a sort of odd, petroleum like smell lurking in the background. Honestly a little weak on the nose.

Taste: Pretty straightforwardly hoppy and slightly bitter. Hops are earthy, slightly solvent, and a little bit piney. Small hints of biscuit and roasted malts in the background, but they never harmonize with the bitterness of the hops like a world-class IPA. Pleasant, lingering hops bitterness. Doesn't totally wreck your palate with acidity like some IPAs. Could possibly benefit from a little more Caramel malts. Flavors open a little with warming, but don't really evolve. Very sessionable, but not remarkable.

Mouth: Overall a little thin on the body side, carbonation is good and smooth.

Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Snifter. 1/4/14.

Poured from a bottle with a "best by" date of 4/26/14; into a pub glass. This is formerly named Red; Odell has renamed this to Runoff Red IPA.
Appearance - a red, sunset orange hue with a huge fluffy beige head. Swirling carbonation bubbles. Lacing is laddered on the back of the glass.
Smell - lots of citrus hops in the nose, this certainly starts off as an IPA!
Taste - follows the nose in its hop forward nature! Reminds me of Stone's Levitation!
Feel - not as complex as I was expecting; well balanced, but still a bit one sided.
Overall - there is no doubt that this is a red IPA and not an amber ale. Recommended for all hop heads!

355ml bottle from Blackfriars, Glasgow (£4.50):
Copper with red tinges and a tiny lacing come head on top that is slightly patchy too.

Hoppy with some caramel and sweet malts. There is some sugar and a generally fruity aroma on top of some tropical fruit notes.

Sweet with caramel and toffee malts and a topical fruit backing that mirrors the nose. There is a touch of alcohol along with the hops but nothing in your face.

This one has a good balance and nice sweet touches that go down well. The beer is fruity and bitter with a medium body and similar carbonation.

A really nice beer from Odell and one that I would have again. There is enough going between the sweet malts and the tropical fruits to keep you interested and the balance between the two is excellent.

Far better than your average red ale, this beer seems to have the hopping that I wanted but didn't find in their ipa.

Pours out a good hearty ruby red color with ample clarity and professionalism in its appearance. 1/2" off white head on it, good retention, stickly lace down one side of the glass.

Taste was hoppy, it led, the red malt flavor that I'm not necessarily a big fan of played second fiddle, I liked that it was carbonated and hoppy enough to prevent any soggy wood mouthfeel that is typical of marginal red ales to creep on me. This is a better than average red ale, in fact, its probably a top 20%er.
