Really pretty picture of this one when it pours out, reddish-amber, but with lots of gleaming to it. 1/2" off white head, good retention and the lace is sticky down the side of the glass.

Aroma fought with the hops and whatever that malt is that subdues everything else in a red ale. But the taste and mouthfeel allow the hops to shine more than they do in the average red ale. Carbonation stays high enough to keep that wooden/damp mouthfeel that is typical for red ales. Probably a top tier red ale.

A bit out of season, but what the hay.

A : The bottle says that the beer is the color of the runoff from the waters of the red rocks. I'd have to say in their defense it looks absolutely beautiful. A beautiful red rock body with some rose and iced tea hues, sitting at 90% opaque. The head is yellow popcorn colored and stays firm at 1 finger while leaving lace on the sides of the glass. Well done.

S : Hop bite out front in the nose (grapefruit/light pine), with a roasted malt character right behind it. Dead on for style. The bouquet could be stronger, but otherwise it's completely spec.

T : A pleasant and balanced melange of roasted caramel maltiness and muted (yet dull stabs of) hop. A bit of blueberry, cracker, and strawberry can be tasted as well as orange peel (hop). Slight antiseptic but not bad. There was something else I was thinking of but I lost it now.

F : Appropriate carbonation and a delicate creaminess match with an almost perfect semi-dryness that crescendos into a balance mixture at the finish.

O : Even out of the bottle this beer tastes great. But even better, the visual fireworks of seeing the lacing gather and dissolve as the beer is drank even from my recliner in an every day pint glass makes for a fabulous experience. Visual, smell, taste, feel...it's all there. Runoff Red is a good shot. Odell knows IPAs.
