Serving type: Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a New Belgium balloon glass.

A: Red pours a crystal clear, deep crimson to mahogany color with a cream-hued two-finger thick head. Retention is excellent, and lacing clings to the glass with ease.

S: Slightly faint on the nose at first. Herbal hop aromas with hints of caramel and toast lingering in the backround.

T: Fruity hop character and sweet malt balance eachother out nicely. Flavors of caramel and fresh toast make a good backbone, supported by earthy, floral hop characters. The dry finish makes for a very clean brew, with notes of pine and citrus.

Notes: This beer is very tasty, and quite easy to drink. If I had one complaint, it would be in the mouthfeel. It's just a bit on the lighter side for the style. Overall, a pretty rock-solid effort by the folks at Odell.

Aroma is malts, spices, a hint of sugar and very dank notes. The flavor is spices, slight vegetables, slight sweetness, grapefruit, malts and a mix of bitter and slight heat in the finish.

A: Clear and red; one finger head that dissipates to a 1/2 finger head--great retention once it gets there; great lacing

S: Fresh hop leaves up front: grapefruit mostly; it's a subtle hop presence but it is would permeates the most

T: There is much more going on in the flavors than in the aroma; there is also a nice malt balance underneath the hops

F: Mouthfeel is good with even coating; carbonation is under control as well

D: A very drinkable and nicely hoped brew; another great offering from the guys at Odell

Poured from 12oz bottle into pub style glass. Nice pour, a very deep brown with a nice red tint, slightly cloudy. Pours a big fluffy head that sticks to the glass. Not an impressive aroma, but certainly not offputting; actually smells a bit sweet, maybe slightly floral, with some maltiness. Very nice taste, a slight hint of tropical tartness with a very nice bitter hop balance. Ends with a bit of toastiness. Nicely carbonated and very smooth. Overall a very nice and drinkable beer!

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.

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

Appearance: Red, clear liquid with an off-white, foamy head.

Smell: Light grapefruit hop over a caramel-honey malt.

Taste: Citric grapefruit and resinous bitterness right up front but then quite bready with lightly toasted, lighty sweet malt. A parting shot of hops give a slightly bitter and drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied and slightly crisp from carbonation.

Drinkability: There is a healthy dose of hop here that's restrained in a good way by the malt. Starts hoppy, gets slightly malty-caramelly sweet in the middle and finishes slightly bitter and dry. Keeps the palate fresh and it's both enjoyable and easy to drink.

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.

This poured out as a beautiful clear red color with a cream colored head on top. The lacing is good as well as the retention. The smell of the beer has a really nice hoppy pine aroma coming off of it with a slight sweet toasted aroma in there too,. The taste of the beer is moderately sweet up front with a very nice bitter finish. The mouthfeel is sharp but remains highly drinkable. Good carbonation and body. Overall it's a very good brew. Really enjoy this one.

A: Two finger light beige head on a mahogany body. Full head sticks around for about three minutes then leaves a cap and collar. Wonderful lacing around the sides of the tulip.

S: Deep hop aromas, juicy orange/citrus.

T: Hops do not present itself as the nose would like you to believe. blanaced malt to hop presence, all somewhat subdued. Shows no signs of alochol.

M: Medium mouthfeel, medium to medium-low carbonation for the style.

D/O: Very well balanced, it's biggest attribute. Drinkability high.

355ml bottle from Blackfriars, Glasgow (£4.50):
Copper with red tinges and a tiny lacing come head on top that is slightly patchy too.

Hoppy with some caramel and sweet malts. There is some sugar and a generally fruity aroma on top of some tropical fruit notes.

Sweet with caramel and toffee malts and a topical fruit backing that mirrors the nose. There is a touch of alcohol along with the hops but nothing in your face.

This one has a good balance and nice sweet touches that go down well. The beer is fruity and bitter with a medium body and similar carbonation.

A really nice beer from Odell and one that I would have again. There is enough going between the sweet malts and the tropical fruits to keep you interested and the balance between the two is excellent.
