Pours a dark ruby with a thumbs width beige head. Nice lacing. Wow... what a wonderful wonderful aroma. Sweet and hoppy and incredibly balanced between the two. Nectarine, grapefruit, a little pine. I could just sit and sniff this all night I think. Flavor is just as good. The grapefruit and pine seem to hit you in the forefront but its balanced extremely well by the malt backbone which provides some delicious toasty graininess and caramel sweetness, with a touch of some berry in there. A nice silky mouthfeel with an appropriate level of activity from the carbonation. Medium bodied. Overall, my favorite red ale. Love the marriage between malt and hops in this one. Odell with a grand slam.

Pours clear red color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Has a piney, grapefruit aroma. Big floral notes. Maybe some apple. Nice, smooth malt to hop transition. Resin, maybe some apple taste at the end. Can detect some caramel. It is seems to have the right amount of malt to hops for me. Good beer. Would definitely purchase again.

On-tap @ Taste of Tops in Tempe, AZ.

A: Deep red with shades of brown. Good sticky lace. A sexy-looking beer.

S: Floral, fruity malt with a hoppy backbone.

T: The balance of hops and malt is fantastic. Hoppy, fruity and delicious. Great with the spicy Thai food I had.

M: Smooth as a beer can be. Very easy to drink.

O: So balanced. Drink this!

Appearance - Maple-ruby in color with a tan head.

Smell - Sugary citrus hops, slightly smoke.

Taste - Very nutty flavor with a subtle kick of hops. The malt still tastes a bit sour, but it detracts very little from the overall.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with a somewhat high level of carbonation.

Drinkability - They did it again. I hate ambers/reds... but Odell's has now made a second one that I like a lot. The nutty character is what seals it, but this beer is mostly balanced, with a slight edge towards the hops. I am loving it, and I will be buying this again. And again.
