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, itís almost as surprising as the season itself.

Bottle. Poured a beautiful dark orange color with an amazing three finger white hear that retained throughout the entire beer. Aroma was spruce with caramel, pine and floral undertones. Very malty taste, with hops, caramel, and some toast. Longer finish, medium body. Above average beer.

A wonderfully hoppy crisp red all with American hops that come through in the aroma and flavor. The color is red and vibrant. The flavor of the hops is nicely balanced with a malty caramel flavor. A very enjoyable beer.

Nose is fresh caramel malts, huge cascade and dank American chinook like hops. Taste is overall dry with moderate to heavy bitterness which provides nice balance. Red color. imagine that. Very nice

I am always excited to try a different beer from Odell. This was a surprising experience to say the least. I was amazed by the floral scents and the delightfully smooth texture. the finish was not too bad either. Iíll probably be picking this one up again.

Bottle; pours a very red-auburn color with an off white head. Aroma of earth, fruit, caramel and a bit of herbs and alcohol. Flavor definitely had a pretty sizable amount of hops for the style. Earthy and fruity throughout. Solid caramel and red malt backbone. Flavor lingers. Solid stuff.

I often hear about how the cost of the better hops is prohibitive. This Odell Red Ale uses that kind of hops, I believe, for this seasonal ale because it stands well above the usual "good" ales and ESBs. Fantastic overall balance and complexity. A goodly level of hop effect without that "blasted by sheer bitterness," but instead a wonderfully powerful and delightful assault by pure assertive brewing genius.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle. Dark red copper pour with a soapy off white head that leaves a noticable lacing. Aroma has a metallic caramel malt scent. Taste is sweet caramel malt flavor up front and leaves a floral hop flavor that makes me think of tea. Palate is medium feel a has a sticky creamy dry finish. Pretty solid amber ale.

Delicious caramel-hop aroma. Well balanced with spicy hops and medium malts. Flavors of pine, citrus, peat moss, and smoky malts. Very tasty red ale. Very bold, so pair with some tasty bar food and youíll be set.
