Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

The pour produced a lot more head than I was expecting, almost too much, but it was still a good-looking, frothy head that formed into a plateaued peak. The head was persistent and chewy in appearance. A copper red liquid with billowing carbonation and a clean, filtered look beneath the head looked delicious. Add to this the semi-opaque appearance and orange hues that add some intrigue.

This beer's smell will take you to paradise. Very tropical and fruity. I get citrusy and piney hops, sweet tropical fruit and bread. The beer is very pungent and aromatic and these notes carry on to the flavor. The palate gets sweet, citrus and bread initially, some pineapple, orange and grapefruit then follow. The beer then finishes sharp, piney and bitter.

This beer is very spring-like, even if it was released while we're still in the clutches of winter. It's light, effervescent and easy-drinking. Starting sweet the beer becomes dry and then finishes bitter. It's distinct from most reds and IPAs in that it's not as creamy and malty and much easier to throw back.

It's a pleasant drink and one I could drink far into the summer. I could easily finish a six pack on my own.

Pours a dark ruby with a thumbs width beige head. Nice lacing. Wow... what a wonderful wonderful aroma. Sweet and hoppy and incredibly balanced between the two. Nectarine, grapefruit, a little pine. I could just sit and sniff this all night I think. Flavor is just as good. The grapefruit and pine seem to hit you in the forefront but its balanced extremely well by the malt backbone which provides some delicious toasty graininess and caramel sweetness, with a touch of some berry in there. A nice silky mouthfeel with an appropriate level of activity from the carbonation. Medium bodied. Overall, my favorite red ale. Love the marriage between malt and hops in this one. Odell with a grand slam.

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.

Best By: 4/27/13
This is fresh, first batch of the year

A – Pours a strong 2" head, settles down to A light amber pillow that stays throughout, leaving good lace.

S – Hops, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, this beer also adds in clover, honey and cinnamon, great winter time notes; however they are greatly subdued.

T – Nice hop character, great balance with the malt however. The clover honey comes through again, there is a nice sweet malt balance here, but it is not overdone.

M – Just about perfect, smooth, velvet, this is exceptional, if anything it has a short finish.

O – Wonderful beer, too bad it is only a seasonal offering, but it just makes this beer that much better. Perfect balance, brings subdued local winter spice to a nice and hoppy beer. A+ Odell.

A: Dark amber-brown color with a large head, more than a cm thick, dense and lasting.
S: Highly resinous hop aroma, with an faint underlay of sweet malt.
T: Great mix of malt and hops! Initial taste is highly bitter with a rush of hop flavor, piney, wood resin, followed by a substantial malt backbone, toasted, with caramel, sweet enough to break the hoppy dryness at the finish.
M: Good body, substantial but not too thick and heavy.
O: Damn tasty beer, one of the better red IPAs out there.
