This was a pretty good combination of an amber and an IPA. Nice malty amber characteristics balanced by the hops. Very well executed.

A good, easy drinking Red. Nice hop flavor, certainly not overpowering.

This would be a good gateway beer for those willing to try a new style. Well done Odell.

Appearance - Pours copper red with a khaki finger width head. Fair retention, breaking down to a thin, consistent layer of surface suds.

Smell - Pineapple aroma permeates the nostrils like sweat through the skin of a fat man in the desert.

Taste - Pineapple is less on the tongue than what shows through the nose, but is still the most prominent flavor. There to meet it are notes of orange and caramel. Finish is bittersweet and all around awesome.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light, silky texture. Smooth, easy drinker.

Overall - Though a bit more tropical with the hop profile, this is quite remeniscent of Deschutes' Red Chair. This is a good thing. Quite delicious. I can only hope California starts getting Odell distribution.

Great beers are when you are trying hard to find something wrong and you can't, while at the same time you might not be able to point out exactly what you like about but you do..this beer falls into that category. If I had a gun to my head I would say it had a kind of flat finish but that is outweighed by the initial feel or sneaky hoppy rush.
