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

A: Pours a clear dark red amber with a thick 2 finger head, great retention and lacing.

S: Fresh and ripe red apple, pomegranite and asian pear combined with pungent floral and citrus hops, clean.

T: Excellent. Sweet crystal malt with a mellow caramel and red apple flavor which is completely taken over by hop flavors of pine, grass, mint and herbs. Good balance and as a reviewer said below, "While most hoppy reds really blur the line between red and IPA this is a quality balance between the more malty reds and the super hoppy reds." The aftertaste has a bold and agressive hop flavor that lingers for quite some time, you are sure to enjoy if youre a hop head

M: Medium bodied with perfect carbonation, an oily stickiness lingers on the palette after each sip but is not overwhelming.

D: Goes down pretty easily and at 6.5%, I could drink it happily through the night.

I must have received a very fresh batch of this stuff, because it was excellent. Also of note, this year's release is way better than the last few years if that turned you off. And if you aren't normally a huge fan of reds (like myself,) definitely give this one a try.

Another great beer from Odell!

Presentation: Bottle 120z. dark

Appearance: A dark-brown red with a deep golden hue. Thick two finger head with semi quick fading retention.

Smell: Roasty malts surrounded by full and strong hops. Faint notes of peanut and bread.

Taste: Round hops profile. Very favorful hops with a cean finish and quick fading after taste.

Mouthfeel: Actually quite bubbly and a little thin. Could use a little more viscosity.

Drinkable: Very drinkable. 6 packs are perfect.

Note: The mouthfeel may have been affected by bad handling in shipping or by the store, but I have had at least 12-15 of thee beers.

Found myself in Colorado and just had to try the Red from Odell.

Pours a very bright copper with a slight ruby character. A cream head with slight lacing throughout.

A very heavy smell of hops that provides the fragrance and stength - almost indescernable from an IPA.

Taste is a wonderful mix of a strong IPA and a traditional red. A truly great experience!

Mouthfeel was good with a high degree of drinkability; good thing I had a lot of company to share them with!! :)

Purchased 6pk from Odell Brewing Co. in Ft. Collins, CO

We split the beer & poured into a Chimay glass about 1 finger of head and a Tulip glass almost 2 fingers. Head color was of burnt marshmallow

Aroma: Citrus hops, slight sweetness

Color: Mahogany, glows light ruby in the light

Clarity: pretty clear, no sedimentation, looks gorgeous

Carbonation: very light carbonation

Mouthfeel: Medium body, bubbly when moved around

Taste: Very hoppy for a red, well balanced leaning toward the hop, slightly sweet malt character, lingering hop drying effect.

Overall it tastes like a hoppy pale with a well balanced malt character. I think this is a drrrn good beer. Very drinkable, reasonably complex.

This is an amazing brew from Odells in Colorado it smells great reminding me of the aroma of a glass of Guava juice that i used to have when I was a kid in other words it has a very fruity smell.I had taken it out of the fridge and poured it from the bottle into a pilsner glass, this beer isn't the best too cold as i first found the cold numbs the flavor out and all you are left with is a very bitter taste with no flavor. Let this beer sit in your mouth and warm up and you will find a wonderful bouquet of flavor with a taste full of hops, pine, and that fruity flavor you could smell. Overall i was very pleased with my purchase and very happy I still have 5 of them left in my fridge.
