Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass
Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy off white head. Head recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Color is amber with a slight reddish hue. Mild streaming carbonation.
Aroma: citrus hops dominate the nose with bread dough some toffee in the background. Mouthfeel: light and frothy mouthfeel, slightly sticky, with a dry finish.
Flavor: initial sweet flavors of bread dough and caramel give way to citrus and pine hops and hop oil through the middle and finish.
Overall: another fine offering from Odell’s.

This is like a lighter version of the O'Dell Extra Special Red Ale I would venture a guess. Hits that 1/2" white head range, bright red appearance with ample clarity. Aroma was mildly hoppy first, then as much in the taste. The hopping rate kept the mouthfeel in hoppy territory and kept it from becoming too much like Killian's with its red/amber ale malt deadwood flavor trappings.

Poured from a bottle into a Pint glass.

Look - light, reddish brown color, fairly clear, with about two finger's worth of vanilla-colored foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell - Definitely hopy, as the label suggests. Probably Cascade hops.

Taste and Mouthfeel - Very hopy in the taste as well, but not getting bitter until the finish. Most of the flavor of the hops themselves comes in the beginning and middle. Also tastes primarily as having Cascade hops. Texture is well-balanced.

Drinkability - Good tasting, but not terribly complex, as most of the taste is just hops. Very drinkable though.

Far better than your average red ale, this beer seems to have the hopping that I wanted but didn't find in their ipa.

Pours out a good hearty ruby red color with ample clarity and professionalism in its appearance. 1/2" off white head on it, good retention, stickly lace down one side of the glass.

Taste was hoppy, it led, the red malt flavor that I'm not necessarily a big fan of played second fiddle, I liked that it was carbonated and hoppy enough to prevent any soggy wood mouthfeel that is typical of marginal red ales to creep on me. This is a better than average red ale, in fact, its probably a top 20%er.
