A beautiful deep red up to the light with a finger of white soapy head that slowly fades to a ring. Mild lacing and nice carbonation effect when I tilt the glass. It smells like sweet juicy grapefruit, biscuity malt, and has a nice piney scent. Nice bitterness just into the swig and then the sweet malt and citrus take over. The bitterness lingers, but overall very mild. The hops come through nicely, but this beer is superbly balanced between sweet and bitter. A bit creamy up front, medium body, average carbonation, and dry on the finish. Just a really pleasant brew. I could drink this frequently.

A beautiful, clear reddish brown beer. There is an off white to light tan head that leaves a wide curtain off lacing. The aroma is malty and piny with some nice floral notes. The taste is sweet malt, pine and grapefruit notes. Very tasty beer.

Very malty ipa, not much of a hop aroma but very smooth and drinkable

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!

One of my favorite beers, and a reason Odell is one of my favorite breweries. Gorgeous red brown color, slightly cloudy. Beautiful creamy foamy head, great lacing. Nice sweet smell, taste is malty, a bit sweet, but well balanced with hops. I love red ales, and this is a favorite.

Appearance: Deep amber, with an average head of off-white suds. Minimal but lovely lines of lace.

Aroma: Rich and appealing tropical hops — fruity and citrusy. In fact, I get lots of fruit here, which certainly isn’t a bad thing.

Taste: Packed with bitter pine and sour grapefruit hops, a little prickly, with a solid malt backbone to support the hops. Really a perfectly formed red IPA, delicious and as good as it gets.

L- chestnut-red with white head
S- hoppiness doesn't overpower as often happens in an IPA. Malt is detectable with a little sweetness provided by subtle dried fruit.
T- Hops with a pine-like flavor are definitely the main flavor profile but sweetness from strong honey notes is highly apparent and maltiness comes through. The aftertaste is a classic hop bitterness.
F-medium bodied with a nice carbonation-filled mouth feel.
O- A surprising flavor for an IPA. This beer decides not to overwhelm the palate with hops and go for a more balanced approach. making it more of an ale than an IPA.

It's got an odd sort of combination of both pine and citrus, maybe an orange or lemon. It's consistency is a bit runny, but it's not terrible by any means.
