2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark, a little clear amber, looks good, light tan head forms a decent ring.. nose at first is nice, lots of caramel and rye but then comes a big wet dog note that totally kills it... the taste is equally bad, I’m drinking wet do water with spicey finsh...don’t bother

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours clear dark red with a nice off white head, aroma is similar to an IPA, very citrusy, I can smell the hops in this, a very pleasant suprise. The taste is citrusy and mildly hoppy, but with a malty backbone, that red ale taste is there, but more hops, not bad. Body is medium, carbonation is medium, Overall I liked it, not a bad beer at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with a thick tan head. Citrusy hops on the nose...smells like an IPA. Tastes like a dialed-down IPA as well. Orange/Grapefruity hops balanced by some creamy caramel malt. Also some roasted malt, honey and hard water notes. Dry finish. Great session brew.

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...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[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
