This beer is exactly what it says it is - a red IPA. Not super-hoppy, thanks to the malty balance of the red, but definitely not just your standard red. The color is a nice dark mahogany, again not quite your normal red. There's a lot of lace on this one too. This is a winter/spring seasonal and I'm glad I picked up a six-pack, even though it's not my favorite beer style. I'll try anything from Odell, and this is no exception.

Beautiful looking beer, deep Amber color with great clarity and Lacing with afluffy head. Sticky sweet malt profile with heavy floral notes, and a toasty oat finish.

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.

A smooth ale inflected with all the colors of the autumnal spectrum: deep reds, shallow, mellow umber, and rich, burnt-oranges all suffuse this beer—making Odell's choice of rotating this through the winter season an interesting one, though I suppose the late-winter "shoulder-season" has as much similar with the liminal world of Fall as any other time of the year. The flavors, too, speak autumn to me: earth-borne piney notes, reflected in the softer nose but fairly resounding once this ale hits the mouth, swirl in well-choreographed complement sweet—but never saccharine—depth of the red-brown malting. There's even a bit of toasted-biscuit on the back, a current on which nice, dry hop-bitters ride through to the tapering end of Runoff's pleasantly loitering finish. Likewise, the light effervescence is nonetheless strong enough aid in bringing this warm, pine-rushing red to a crisp, clean finale.

While certainly not an especially aggressive beer, nor acutely expressive of its specific ingredients, it does seem pretty expertly expressive of the nuanced season when a somber quickening burdens each snowfall with the steady implications of spring.

Hops and pine. The more I drink, the more I like it, but it's still just too hoppy for me.

Pours a nice reddish color with off-white head. Pine, malts, and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a nice caramel malt note.

Pours a lovely deep, clear red with a nice tan head. Aroma is of toast and citrus notes. Good hop presence. Slightly bitter then caramel malt notes dominate. Followed by good hop bitterness and floral notes. Finishes dry with just a hint of alcohol at the end. Very nice beer slightly thin mouthfeel otherwise excellent by all standards.

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.
