Glowing ruby with dense viscous taupe head that fades to a creamy rim that webs. Luscious strawberry-orange jam nose. Toast, some chocolate malts and lean red currant up front, vegetal middle, with rhubarb, cedar and blood orange hops. Caramel end and sap linger. Medium and sticky.

Like Red Rocket without the hops. I could see it as a spring seasonal - it's both March and May. Unusual, but up to Odell's high standards.

This brew is an amber color, clear,mand capped with a frothy white head. The smell is a blend of malt and musty hops. Nice balance. Caramel and bread...peppery hops. Lingering bitter finish it has a firm and medium mouthfeel. This is a fine Amber ipa.

Aroma is malts, spices, a hint of sugar and very dank notes. The flavor is spices, slight vegetables, slight sweetness, grapefruit, malts and a mix of bitter and slight heat in the finish.

12oz bottle, best enjoyed by 5/9/17
A - tall khaki head leaves thick lacing down the glass as it fades atop a reddish-brown hued ale; just gorgeous!
S - caramel malt, bread, and orangey citrus fill the nose
T - big malt backbone of grain, caramel, toffee, and bread crust with a bitter hop bite of orange zest & pine, and a hint of tropical mango and passion fruit
M - medium body, resinous, finishes moderately bitter and semi-dry
O - I love all things Odell, and this is no exception. This is great!

This could easily be mistaken for an IPA.. Great transparent red color and smells like the grassiest fruity hops. The taste is bitter grassy hops again, fruit and bitterness. I guess you could call this red based upon the color but the smell and taste say hoppy IPA.

Lovely amber/red color with a creamy tan head that leaves some nice lace.

Some spicy wintery malt with a big hop profile that is reminiscent of their ipa and pale ale.

Lots of hop bitterness and they come in the herbal and earthy forms. A solid malt backbone that has spicy notes. Caramel sweetness with amazing hop flavor. Piney, but low bitterness. Fresh hop leaf character.

The feel is nice and smooth. Medium bodied with a mildly dry finish.

Love this stuff. So drinkable with a great hop profile. Top notch red ale.

Far better than your average red ale, this beer seems to have the hopping that I wanted but didn't find in their ipa.

Pours out a good hearty ruby red color with ample clarity and professionalism in its appearance. 1/2" off white head on it, good retention, stickly lace down one side of the glass.

Taste was hoppy, it led, the red malt flavor that I'm not necessarily a big fan of played second fiddle, I liked that it was carbonated and hoppy enough to prevent any soggy wood mouthfeel that is typical of marginal red ales to creep on me. This is a better than average red ale, in fact, its probably a top 20%er.

A random single I grabbed on a recent trip to the US.

A - Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a rudy red hue, solid finger of soapy white head, solid retention and nice spotty lacing.

S - Sweet citrus hops, surprisingly resiny, hints of sugary maple and a touch of caramel on the finish.

T - Nice sweet citrus hops off the top, nicely balanced with a rich caramel malt backbone, touch of resiny hops linger alongside hints of citrus rind and pineapple.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and touch of dryness on the finish.

O - Incredibly tasty red ale, solid hop presence but nicely balanced with the caramel malts. Highly recommended and incredibly drinkable. This stuff on tap, I would imagine, would be irresistible.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Best by date of 5/2/14.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber red with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three fingers of off white head that slowly settle into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A toasty and fairly earthy red aroma with a solid balance of sweet caramel malt and juicy hops. Toasted malts with hints of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, grains, yeast, nut, and cracker. Solid hop balance with a good presence of earthy, floral, and citrus hops. Scent of wet grassy hops and pine resin spice. Citrus hop hints of orange peel, lemons, grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple. A very solid balanced aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma implies, a toasty and juicy red taste with a good balance of juicy hops and caramel malt. Toasted malt with bready notes of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, grains, yeast, cracker, and nuts. Big mix of floral, earthy, and citrus hops. Earthy notes of grass and some spicy pine resin. Citrus hop notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, and pineapple. Hops are nicely bitter and chewy. A very solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, chewy, and spicy with a drying finish.

Overall: A very solid take on a red ale. Bold with both the juicy hops and caramel malt. Its what you expect for the style.

Reddish copper color with one inch of head that quickly settled to a thin skim. Heavy lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma is heavily influenced by the hops. Smells dank and old growth forest. Slight floral and herbal notes. The malt is slightly toasted and has a toffee quality.

The malt bill does not quite do it for me as other great reds are able to do. Just a touch artificial. The hops are strong and bitter. Pithy, resiny, and just a little rough. Has a bitter bite in the finish.

Very low carbonation which does not hurt this hoppy beer. Medium body.

It seems most of Odell's beers just fall a little short of being great to me. This one is no exception.

This beer pours a clear bright red color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes quickly into a small cap of lacing lingers for a while. The aroma is a great balance of malt and hop. There is a ton of grapefruit and a ton of caramel. The taste is maltier up from with a solid bitterness coming through in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this is a really good beer. It is very flavorful and aromatic, however, the spectrum of those flavors and aromatics isn't that deep. Still I would happily drink this beer again.
