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.

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.
