This beer pours a clear red amber with a solid head. The aroma is very pungent, with grapefruit, mango, papaya, guava, and pine. The flavor features lots of grapefruit pith, pine, papaya, slight malt sweetness, and pronounce bitterness. The mouthfeel is full bodied with rich, foamy carbonation. Overall this is a truly delicious red ale, with great malt and hop tension.

Appearance: Hazy amber glass holds a firm cover of tan foam that laces.

Aroma: Sweet crystal malt base holds a pine and citric hop punch.

Taste: Hops are a little low for my tastes, but a Red IPA should be a bit sweeter as this is. Drinks like an APA, citric notes, sweet bready undertone, all balances out pretty nicely.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, frothy texture, clean finish.

Overall: Tasty. I'm not a huge Red IPA fan, and I don't see getting another but this is well made and enjoyable.

Pours a brownish amber red with a touch of chill haze but otherwise clear with a nice two finger plump head of light brownish-red foam.

Nice and welcoming sweet biscuits, caramel, and toffee accompany notes of pine and subtle citrus notes.

The caramel and bready notes from the firm malt backbone provide just enough sweetness, but does not overpower the hop addition, lending notes of citrus, grass, and pine.

Light-medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, balanced.

Overall, while I'm not generally a fan of amber ales due to the styles usual subtlety, but I was thorough pleased with this brew. It's greatly balanced and is almost too easy drinking.

12oz bottle, best enjoyed by 5/9/17
A - tall khaki head leaves thick lacing down the glass as it fades atop a reddish-brown hued ale; just gorgeous!
S - caramel malt, bread, and orangey citrus fill the nose
T - big malt backbone of grain, caramel, toffee, and bread crust with a bitter hop bite of orange zest & pine, and a hint of tropical mango and passion fruit
M - medium body, resinous, finishes moderately bitter and semi-dry
O - I love all things Odell, and this is no exception. This is great!

Gorgeous bottle and gorgeous beer. The flavor is great, tons of caramel maltiness balanced perfectly with hops. Sweet and bitter. Odell stuns me once again.
