3.95/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Red, clear liquid with an off-white, foamy head.

Smell: Light grapefruit hop over a caramel-honey malt.

Taste: Citric grapefruit and resinous bitterness right up front but then quite bready with lightly toasted, lighty sweet malt. A parting shot of hops give a slightly bitter and drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied and slightly crisp from carbonation.

Drinkability: There is a healthy dose of hop here that's restrained in a good way by the malt. Starts hoppy, gets slightly malty-caramelly sweet in the middle and finishes slightly bitter and dry. Keeps the palate fresh and it's both enjoyable and easy to drink.

A cloudy, copper colour with an eggshell head. The beer smells citrus-hoppy and sweet, with a slight malt scent. The beer tastes like citrus and hops right away, almost like a grapefruit flavour. It finishes clean, with a slight sweetness to it.

Would I buy it again? Definitely!

Serving type: on-tap

3.53/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a Pint glass.

Look - light, reddish brown color, fairly clear, with about two finger's worth of vanilla-colored foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell - Definitely hopy, as the label suggests. Probably Cascade hops.

Taste and Mouthfeel - Very hopy in the taste as well, but not getting bitter until the finish. Most of the flavor of the hops themselves comes in the beginning and middle. Also tastes primarily as having Cascade hops. Texture is well-balanced.

Drinkability - Good tasting, but not terribly complex, as most of the taste is just hops. Very drinkable though.

thought to myself that I wanted to drink a red ale tonight, so I reached in the fridge and grabbed this.

Best by 6/15/11, drank 7/25/2011

A-Good red color with great head retention

S-very hoppy. Just what i was hoping for. More on the lines of piney but some nice citrus there as well. Little bit leading to the malty side but I cannot complain as i heeded the bottle dates

T-Alot like it smells. Nice malt backbone with a little hint of hops on the way down

M-medium body and very smooth

O- one of my favorite reds. My glass was gone in no time

This just goes to show you the forgiveness i will give a beer if it is bottle dated. the hops started to fade but it is MY Fault that I drank past expiration, therefore I rated it on what its original qualities would have been

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12oz bottle to Pint Glass. Bottled stamped 4/26/11.

A - Beers poured a perfectly clear cherry wood color. Monstrous head with intense 2.5 head with excellent retention and huge lacing.

S - Monstor blend of rich malt tones and hops. The bottle names American hops. I detected earthy and citrus hops on the aroma. Also prevelant is a nice blend of rich roasted malts.

T - Flavor starts with an extremely pleasant mix of earthy tones of hops with a hint of citrus. I really enjoyed the blend of malt characteristics of roast, toast, and definately biscuit.

M - Medium bodied that coats the palete with a rich creamy flavor.

D - Extremely.

I like how Odell's has transitioned from the Extra Special Red to the current offering. I don't know if it's true that they adjust the recipe from year to year but I really enjoy the hops character with a nice complex malt blend with this year's Red. I a cannot name a better Red Ale. Very nice. Highly recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear brilliant red amber color with a decent white head that hangs around and produces some nice lacing.

The aroma is roasted malt, caramel, citrus and pine.

The taste starts with a rich caramel malt followed immediately by a pine resin and grapefruit hops kick, at near IPA levels, that continues through the finish and lingers. Very nicely balanced, plenty for the hop fanatic and malt lover as well.

Medium/full bodied, smooth and very drinkable.

3.9/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving type: Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a New Belgium balloon glass.

A: Red pours a crystal clear, deep crimson to mahogany color with a cream-hued two-finger thick head. Retention is excellent, and lacing clings to the glass with ease.

S: Slightly faint on the nose at first. Herbal hop aromas with hints of caramel and toast lingering in the backround.

T: Fruity hop character and sweet malt balance eachother out nicely. Flavors of caramel and fresh toast make a good backbone, supported by earthy, floral hop characters. The dry finish makes for a very clean brew, with notes of pine and citrus.

Notes: This beer is very tasty, and quite easy to drink. If I had one complaint, it would be in the mouthfeel. It's just a bit on the lighter side for the style. Overall, a pretty rock-solid effort by the folks at Odell.
