Got this as an extra from krayziejman. Thanks, man! 12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe glass. Drink by date of 4/26/11.

A: Mostly translucent ruby red body topped by a one-finger off white head. Head fades quickly leaving a little bit of lacing and a solid ring.

S: Very bright hop aroma. Pretty sure this bottle is nice and fresh. Malt doesn't have much to say in the aroma, but it's generally appealing. Only moderately bitter.

T: Surprisingly, there's not much of the hop presence from the nose apparent here. There's definitely an aftertaste on here that doesn't seem quite right to me... unpleasant. Makes a claim to be aggressively hopped, but I feel like it lacks a proper blending of the hop flavors and the result is less than spectacular. Malt bill is unoffensive but also unspectacular.

M: Slightly watery and very highly carbonated, but relatively refreshing. About average for the style.

D: Enh. I could drink this to drink, but I'm not a huge fan overall. The flavor isn't great, which is my main complaint.

A: A beautiful, opaque, medium red color with a large 1 inch head that retained well throughout out. Nice lacing.

S: Smells of mainly citrusy hops but is well balanced.

T: More on the bitter side but has a nice malty taste.

M: Smooth. Very tasty!

O: Overall its a very nice Red Ale. I haven't found one that I don't like yet! Odells take on this style is very good. I would purchase this one again.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Copper color leaning more towards the redish side.

S - The aromas on this one make this beer in my opinion. Strong fruity smells start (orange, some tropical like hints) followed by the hop grapefruit smell ending in a caramel like malty hint with a touch of spices. Some earthy wood tones. Smells like nature. AMAZING!

T - Taste is not what all of the smell would lead you to believe. Very balanced beer between the malts and hops however not as strong of a hop taste as the smell would lead to. Very tasty though. Alcohol is not noticeable whatsoever.

M - Medium body. Somewhat light on the carbonation.

O - If you see this get it! It is well worth a try. Very drinkable, amazing aromas.

Poured from a bottle dated 5.29.13 into a pint glass

Pours a very pretty ruby red with about a half inch foam head that stays throughout the duration of enjoying this one. Smells fantastic with a heavy dose of piny hops and some malty sweetness at the end. Tastes quite different than it smells, with the malty sweetness blending quite nicely with the hop presence.

Overall, this beer is one of my favorite offerings from Odell. As I sip on it, I am instantly transported back to my glorious days in Fort Collins as a CSU grad student... This was a beer that I always looked forward to every year, and I always had plenty on hand to share with guests at outdoor events and BBQs. Brings back memories of some of the best times of my life, and for that, I have to give this an obligatory two thumbs up.
