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.

Nice amber pour with a small foamy head. Caramel malt, honey, a touch of chocolate and citrus hop in the aroma. Nice hoppy flavor with a hint of sweetness. Pretty good stuff.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Pours amber with very little froth. Smells of sweet malt yet very mild. Medium full nectar with excellent carbonation. This brew seems to be well balanced. A solid malt backbone featuring some toffee, high grade cocoa, and caramelized grains then turns citrusy and hop snappy. It works though. The malty sweetness is paralyzed by the thorny hop profile rendering this brew close to tasteless. I know the flavor is there but itís not. The two components cancel each other out..seemingly. A very neutral beer and highly drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2010 damn. this is pretty good. Nice bonus beer surprise from doodler. thanks scott. Pours a clear ruby red with a small tan head. arom a of orange, caramel, citrus. PLus a weird grass earthy hop resin glow underlying all that other shit. FLavor is sweet malt hop mixture. Ok balance, but i would vote for an even higher hop to malt ratio. A nice hoppy red ale, not as hoppy as green flash hop head red, which is awesome, but deserves itís place amongst the best amber ales out there. who knows. Only knocks on the beer is that it gets a bit earthy doughy note as it warms. Also, found myself wishing there were more hops in this. pretty good. would drink again.

Vibrant garnet pour produced a creamy eggshell head that left a nice amount of sticky lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma was of caramel malt, toffee, citrus and honey. Flavor definitely leans toward the hophead with orange peel and grapefruit confronting the sweeter malt. Ample carbonation and good mouthfeel. Another solid brew by Odell.

RichardGretton (4293) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Clear amber orange, thin frothy white head fades leaving a ring. Aroma of pineapple and sweet citrus hop. Taste is sweet hop with a mild bitter finish. Very nice and smooth with soft carbonation.

bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Bottle pours a crystal-clear red-amber with a nice fluffy white head. Light windowpane lacing as the liquid disappears. Aroma is earhy, with a strong hop aroma (not the stinging pine or citrus, but a nice herbal balance), and an understated leather base. Apart from the beautiful appearance and potent smell, this beer stands up well in the flavor category, with the hoppy punch of a pale ale slightly overtaking the malty base flavors. Tasty, but not exactly sessionable with such bold flavors. A very well-done red!

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a finger and a half dense tan head that leaves delicate lacing. The nose is caramel, citrus and light pine. The taste is caramel, spicy hops, ripe citrus and some bitter citrus rind in the finish. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Nice Amber Ė really enjoyed this one!

phaleslu (6812) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle as an extra in a trade with LtDan- thanks again, Dan! Pours a clear red-amber color with a half-inch thick tan head that leaves some light lacing within the glass. Aroma of earthy hops, citrus, caramel malts, pineapple, and a sharp chemical note. Earthy hops lead and finish the flavor, which also has notes of pine, dirt, tea leaves, light caramel malts, pineapple, citrus, and the same chemical note that shows up on the nose. Medium-bodied, with good carbonation and a mouthfeel that falls somewhere between tea-like and oily. Interesting beer, and nice job for the style.
