Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours gorgeous deep reddish amber with a frothy tan head that settles to a light layer and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Toasty bready malt, a bit floral and fruity, pine, and a little toffee sweetness.

T: Bready malts, toasty, even a bit roasty, citrus, orange and a little grapefruit, pine, faintly herbal, and a little toffee sweetness.

M: A bit on the fuller end of medium body, mild carbonation, smooth and a little creamy.

O: Nicely balanced, but for a red IPA I was hoping the hops would jump out a little more. My bottle is well within the enjoy by date, but I would love to see what it's like super fresh. As it stands, still an enjoyable beer.

I've become a fan of black IPAs and now I'm really digging the red IPAs. I am a fan of Ambers and this beer has everything you like about ambers. Nice malt flavor mixed with the generous hoppy citrus/resin flavors meld well together. Nice deep Amber pour and a good mouthfeel. Nice beer

Red IPA. not to be mean. But weak knees compared to Odell's regular IPA. this red seasonal is good, not phenomenal and rich like Odell IPA, or great with a kick Mercenary. Good beer. For the same price I can drink. Too light for my taste compared to Odell's other masterfull IPA, not citrusy bright, and refreshing such as Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA, or Stone's Delicious IPA. A beer not to turn down if offered it tastes good, but I will buy these others before I ever purchase this again.

Great seasonal beer for Odell that I just randomly picked out when standing @ the store. Definitely pours like its name reddish orange. It didn't taste like your typical IPA to me, being sweet w/ a mild bitter after taste. Would definitely scoop up again for the Spring season. Good work!

More people buy IPAs than other beers.....but that's no reason to call an Amber Ale an IPA. I notice in the accompanying photo that it USED TO BE called Red Ale...nuff said.

This is a very good Amber ale.....sweet, very malt-forward, nice deep red color....Caramel and Munich malts for sure. No evidence of much of any hops. Not too heavy, sessionable.

So it's just NOT an IPA. Go back to the correct category, and sell it that way. There's no shame in making a very good, full-body, winter brew.

Solid brew. Pour dark copper w a solid head. Good lacing. Flavor malt hops. Slightly sweet with a slight bitter finish. This one is a keeper.

A reddish-gold pour, slightly hazy with a solid head leaving nice lacing. Aroma background of the piney hops, with notes of malt ... Is there any rye there? Nice malt forward, with the hops bitterness coming in later, in pale ale style. So, I'm questioning why the label states "Red IPA", but that's Odell's choice, not mine. A little sweetness on the front end and dryness on the back is a great balance. They nailed this one.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 5-6-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a beautiful ruby color with small suspended sediments floating about, one-finger off-white head that eventually dissipated leaving a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles, significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, caramel, slight roasted note and somewhat flowery.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel and a roasted note, bread then a mild piney hop profile.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a solid beer, I enjoyed it and would buy it again, the roasted noted are subtle and the hops are subtle but it works, I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

Pretty solid beer - I like the smell. Just a hint of malts and some fruit, maybe grapes. The taste is very balanced - I especially like how the malt balances with the fruit. Nothing sticks out but overall it's very enjoyable.
