COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This time of year in the Rockies, one day can span all four seasons. Morning snow gives way to afternoon sun, sending fresh snowmelt into our rivers and into our mash tun. With a complex malt backbone dry hopped for notes of citrus and pine, it’s almost as surprising as the season itself.

Had on Draft @ The Foundry when i stopped in to use the bathroom after the Beer Kitchen .. . Pours a tan sunset, good foam .. . light malts, maple and some light sap .. . quite a nice beer, and one of the nicest ambers around .. . Odell doesn’t make one bad product .. . I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places...

25 May 2011, bottle. reddish amber colour, clear w/ no bubbles. nice blend of pink grapefruit citrus rind, pulp and slight harsh grassy hops. med body and slightly fizzy. really nice flavour. significant pink grapefruit hops with a sweet malt background. big IPA elements w/ enough red ale to balance it nicely. great!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2011
In bottle. This beer poured a nice clear red/orange colour with a decent yellowish head that lingered. The aroma and palate are both quite hoppy with a caramel malt character that rounds this beer off nicely. Deceptively drinkable for 6.5% abv.

BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from the single rack at USAFA Class 6. Pours a clear bronze color with a huge, foamy khaki head and thick lacing. Pretty big, hoppy aroma for the style but that’s nice because often ambers get muted and boring. Flavor might be a little disjointed. Nice hop notes up front but then a strange, malty flatness finishes things out. This gets better as it warms. Okay.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2011
[355ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours a deep caramel red colour, with a thin white head. Big hop aromas, bitter pine scents, with some nice malty notes as well. Hops are the first thing that arrives on the taste, but with some caramel malt the balance is really nice. The finish is dry and bitter, as the hops win out eventually, as you always thought they wood. Veers towards the IPA at the end, but good stuff over all [12052011]

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Reddish copper with a frothy taupe head that dissipates away at a moderate rate and leaves some pleasant looking flare lacing. Aroma of grains, caramel, citrus, bready malt and a hint of pine. Taste is more malty than hoppy with caramel, light biscuit along with some floral and piney hops. Mild bitterness on the finish.

Dark copper red with a creamy white head. Nice big citrus hops aroma and taste with a grassy slightly soapy finish.

AshtonMcCobb (2466) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours a lovely chestnut/orangey/ember-llke ale, with some bubbles and some head (a little more head and it would be 5 in the ’Appearance’ category). The nose has pine and sweet maltiness. The taste is more pine and sweet malt, so disappointed it looks like a red ale but tastes like an IPA. For the palate, I would like to have experienced more body and although it is initially quite creamy, the refreshing finish starts far too early. Overall, this is a nice beer but why does it need to taste like an IPA.

jc4031 (129) - Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2011
this is a refreshing red but not my style. way too malty and not nearly enough hos for what the label reveals. roasty, grass, dough, color is a great red amber. very malty and sweet. medium body average carbonation. this beer could impove in my opinion with some more citrus hops, but that is just my taste.

Camons (5855) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 25, 2011
Tap @ Peoria Grill, Denver. Pours hazy amber, no head. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and orangepeel, earthy and caramel malts. Taste is hoppy with grapefruit, caramel and bready malts to balance. Medium body, lively carbonation. Pretty good beer, but doing the 2 weeks i stayed at the hotel ( and had it for my to go beer ) the keg ( wich was on the day before i arrived ) went from very fresh and hoppy to alot more watered down and less hoppy, and more earthy / malty beer. Still good tho. 070411
