Bottle enjoyed in Estes Park, CO...quite stunning. The beer pours deep amber/mahogany with a well-made head of sticky bubbles. The aroma is pine and herbal grassiness with just a hint of brown sugar peeking through. Flavor favors malt more with caramel, shortbread, and biscuit. Hop flavor and bitterness is still firm with another hit of pine, some citrus, and an earthy element that separates it from other big American reds. Slightly resinous, oily mouthfeel along with the pine makes this perfect for a spring evening in the Rocky Mountains.

Pours a brownish amber red with a touch of chill haze but otherwise clear with a nice two finger plump head of light brownish-red foam.

Nice and welcoming sweet biscuits, caramel, and toffee accompany notes of pine and subtle citrus notes.

The caramel and bready notes from the firm malt backbone provide just enough sweetness, but does not overpower the hop addition, lending notes of citrus, grass, and pine.

Light-medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, balanced.

Overall, while I'm not generally a fan of amber ales due to the styles usual subtlety, but I was thorough pleased with this brew. It's greatly balanced and is almost too easy drinking.

Appearance: Red-amber, good head, looks very nice.

Smell: Floral, some citrus.

Taste: Nice balanced sweetness and citrus hops. Prickly mouthfeel, but also feels a little heavier in body than most IPA's.

Overall: Odell makes a lot of good beers, this one is another solid one. Nice balanced IPA with a little more heft than I was expecting. Worth a shot.

A - Dark ruby red with brown hues that brightens greatly when held up to light. Big foamy dirty khaki colored head. Head quickly fades to a chunky cap and leaves behind big chunks of lace on the glass.

S - Strong hoppy aroma backed by an assertive caramel sweetness. Hops are spicy and herbal. The sweetness has alot of caramel and lightly toasted dark bread.

T - Initially very sweet with lots of caramel malt coming through in the taste. The hoppiness quickly comes in to balance and provides alot of grassy notes mixed with a little herbal bitterness. Bitterness does not really linger.

M/D - Light to medoum bodied, a little on the thin side. Sweetness leaves a light coating in the mouth. Carbonation could stand to be a touch higher.

Review from notes:

12oz served in a SN IPA glass

A - Reddish copper body, 2 fingers of dense head that takes it's time. Thick lacing left behind.

S - Bread/biscuit malts, slightly fruity, English yeast, leafy green hops, pine, fruit bread.

T - Citrus hops up front, good malty backbone, some bready caramel, slightly toasted, pine comes through along with a blast of grapefruit citrus bitterness on the finish.

M - Creamy carbonation, medium full body, smooth feel.

Very well rounded red here. Great execution all around. The malts blend very well with the hops and yeast providing a tasty drink from front to finish.
