On tap at the Red Cow, into an English pint glass

A: reddish amber with a tight 2 finger off-white head that lasts for several minutes
S: faint earthy/piney, woody notes and a little caramel and breadiness
T: more bready heaviness, some earthy herbal hop notes that give a little lift in the second half. As with most of Odell's beers, this seems well made but the flavors don't completely harmonize for me.
M: this is the best part of this beer. Medium carbonation, but in terms of flavors -- full, creamy, smooth.

overall: easy drinking but substantial...tastes like a hoppy red should. Doesn't do anything that really grabs your attention...in fact one might think it a little muted, I go back and forth on the balance but there is some nice subtlety that over the course of one or two, really pleases.

Look: Deep hazy ruby amber with generous light tan head that settles to a film with lacing around the edges.

Smell: pine and sweet citrus

Taste: Malt has a complex character, mildly sweet but a dry almost a lager-like character, hops is fresh piney and sweet citrus but maybe slightly more restrained than with the standard IPA - the finish is less bitter than the regular Odell IPA if memory serves.

Body: Medium body with fine carbonation. Smooth.

Overall: A very pleasant IPA all around, more balanced than is typical without too much sweetness. The hops is nicely presented without too much bitterness. Would definitely buy again.
