3.79/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

One of my favorite beers, and a reason Odell is one of my favorite breweries. Gorgeous red brown color, slightly cloudy. Beautiful creamy foamy head, great lacing. Nice sweet smell, taste is malty, a bit sweet, but well balanced with hops. I love red ales, and this is a favorite.

A smooth ale inflected with all the colors of the autumnal spectrum: deep reds, shallow, mellow umber, and rich, burnt-oranges all suffuse this beer—making Odell's choice of rotating this through the winter season an interesting one, though I suppose the late-winter "shoulder-season" has as much similar with the liminal world of Fall as any other time of the year. The flavors, too, speak autumn to me: earth-borne piney notes, reflected in the softer nose but fairly resounding once this ale hits the mouth, swirl in well-choreographed complement sweet—but never saccharine—depth of the red-brown malting. There's even a bit of toasted-biscuit on the back, a current on which nice, dry hop-bitters ride through to the tapering end of Runoff's pleasantly loitering finish. Likewise, the light effervescence is nonetheless strong enough aid in bringing this warm, pine-rushing red to a crisp, clean finale.

While certainly not an especially aggressive beer, nor acutely expressive of its specific ingredients, it does seem pretty expertly expressive of the nuanced season when a somber quickening burdens each snowfall with the steady implications of spring.

Thanks to SalukiAlum for sending me this one!

Pours a clear copper/amber color with a 1 inch bone colored head that fades to a thin cap. Good rings of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smells of malt and spicy citrus zest hops. A very simple but good smell. Taste is of sweet malt followed by a citrus zest bite. Little hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. Mouthfeel is a bit flat and thin. Overall, this is an above average amber ale but nothing too exciting.

It's got an odd sort of combination of both pine and citrus, maybe an orange or lemon. It's consistency is a bit runny, but it's not terrible by any means.

The Odell's Red is, in my opinion, their best seasonal by a long shot. Sweet, malty, hoppy, creamy....overall a great product with very little fan fare.

The Red is a vibrant amber red with a lasting two finger head. It is as described above, a blend of goodness that could be 'ol trusty if it were around more often. Something I love to drink after a day of enjoying CO's many outside activities but with dreams of sipping on one at a hot summer Rox game. We all have dreams but at least today I have Red. Cheers.

L: Pours a brilliant crimson red with a large creamy head that dissipates a little quickly, but leaves about half an inch layer on top. A very enticing looking beer.

S: Strong notes of pine mixed with notes of grapefruit, notes of pine sap and a little floral hop. Some grassy and sweet malt in the background. Smells exactly like I like my red IPAs to smell.

T: A strong piney bitterness leads off and coats the tongue, notes of grapefruit wrap around the pine, with some notes of floral hops in the background. A sweet somewhat earthy malt in the background.

F: Creamy feel with a medium to heavier body.

O: I love this red IPA, very pine and tree sappy with a few notes of fruit. I've loved this beer when it was still just called Odell Red Ale and it still never lets me down.
