Reddish amber colored with a touch of haziness to the look. A half inch of beige head is present. Brussels lacing. Aroma is fresh dough and judiciously used piney hops. The flavor is a well balanced presentation of amber malt but the hops seem more piney tasting than citrus. The body is moderately carbonated and overall fairly light for the style.

Poured into a Russian River "tion" glass. Best by 05/17/15.

Appearance: Pours about a finger of khaki head atop a reddish mahogany body. Nice head retention in a bubbly film with creamy lacing in the glass.

Aroma: Resinous citrus up front with a floral grassiness from the dry hopping. Sweet, toasted malt backbone holds up the hops and complements the grassy dry hopping.

Taste: More citrusy like hop notes up front, almost like a light lemon or white grape before leading into a more bitter pine and toasted sweet malts (think baguette) and a resinous hop bite finish.

Mf: Light/medium body with a coarse hoppy feel. Finish is a bit astringent and drying.

Overall: A pleasant hoppy ale that while having a good hop profile is nicely tied together by the sweet bready malt build. The more pine like hop notes meld really well with the malts and I’d even like to see a more of the pine than the lighter citrusy notes. Runoff Red would be a good work week IPA to stock in the fridge; hits all the right notes without dragging. I’d really like to see what an imperial version of this with a bit of rye and Amarillo hops.

Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

A - 4.75 - Poured a deep, dark ruby red color with tinges of cognac. Formed a finger and a half of thick, dense, light tan colored head. Good head potential and retention. Forms Nice rings of lacing on the glass, spotty permanent lacing left behind.
S - 4 - Pine, grapefruit, hops, rainwater earthiness and a malty backbone. The malt is harmonious with the other aromas rather than smelling like a malt bomb DIPA that has sat too long!
T - 4.5 - Balance is the key here. Medium sweet hops and pine upfront which fades into a malty finish. Doesn't finish sweet or bitter, rather on a neutral malty tone. Extremely well balanced and decently sessionable flavor. Would have received a perfect 5 in the taste, but I would have liked just a little more bitterness on the finish. Still, extremely good flavor.
F - 5 - Wow, this is full-bodied, creamy and thick. Can't believe this isn't a stout!
O - 4.75 - REALLY awesome representation of the red IPA style. Once again, Odell impresses me with their IPA game! Highly recommend this one to fans of IPAs looking for something just a little bit different from your normal IPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
