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.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep amber with a medium, beige, frothy head and some lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and some grassy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, and toffee with a lot more earthy, grassy hops than expected though still very even with hop bitterness contained. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Very good for the style.

mensch (287) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Growler from the taproom. Really pretty red-brass color with nice foam lacing down the glass. Evident dry-hopping, citrus and pine aroma. Easy drinking style (What is amber anyway?) Plenty of malt backs up the big bitter hop finish. I’d call it an IRA- India Red Ale.

Gription79 (2682) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is caramel, citrus, toasted malts. The flavor is similar with American citrusy hops and a caramel toasted malt character. I really enjoy this beer.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Didn’t realize I had tasted this one before, quite a while back. Interestingly enough, I gave it the exact same scores all-around. I love it when that happens. My previous rating was in my beer infancy. This is pretty plain overall, both for an IPA and a red IPA.

Hoppier than expected. Citrus and caramel, pretty carbonated. Nice color, decent beer. 7+4+7+3+12

12 ounce bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. A sweet caramel nose, dusty, light hops. The flavor is a clean well made rich sweet caramel flavor, some light citrus. Good.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 August 8th, 2013 - Now (April, 2015) called the Runoff Red, O’Dell’s Red Ale is a deep, flavorful dollop of caramel and sweet flavors, rich though not unctuous. A deep hoppy scent flows freely from the top of a tan/off white head, giving off additional notes of red, sweet and gooey malt and a distinctive old world hop profile. Surprisingly, given the nose, the palate is somewhat thinner, almost watery, paring back the risk of a cloying brew, and delivering lighter intensity flavors of apple and apple skins, though the blend is not as appealing as the nose. The hop notes are stellar, but the overall impression is concoction that’s been diluted just too much, especially after the tantalizing richness of the nose. March 28th, 2010 - The amber ale has always been a steadfast friend. Consistent, supportive, predictable, and reliable. And for all these positive qualities, the amber ale is also lackluster. It never seems to change. O’Dell has gone some way to change that. The O’Dell Red Ale is (and I say this with the maximum amount of feigned shock) red, and the nose delivers appreciable hoppy qualities, alongside caramel, apple, cinnamon and light notes of spice. The taste is where this red diverges from so many others. It is bready and yeasty, all on a light palate, and with lots of “jolly” caramel touches. It’s also crisp and clear, and has a rich carbonate taste that goes well with everything else working on the palate. Why this isn’t one of O’Dell’s workhouse beers is beyond me, but it is, so far, the highlight of my sampler flight. (3.7)
