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.

Sparky (2133) - 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 (6204) - 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.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours a sexy amber with off-white head that is thick at first then recedes to a thin layer that remains for the pint. Nose has a very nice fruity component, perhaps passion fruit or at least a very mixed batch of fruit aromas. A generous toffee sweetness is welcomed onto the palate at first, with plenty of "juicy fruit" hoppiness in the balance. Thereís a slight candied quality to this ale too. Finish is toffee sweet with lingering citrus. Very drinkable and quite delicious.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 29, 2010
On tap at the Crescent Moon. Pours red with a thin Beige head. Aroma of mild citrus pine trees and Orange. Very drinkable but still packed with massive body and solid humulus taste. A very good "red", whatever the hell that is.

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2010
On tap at Old Chicago Thornton poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, grapefruit, pine and light tangerine. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, tangerine, pine, grapefruit and light earthiness with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish. Easily one of the best Odell beers Iíve had. Flat out kicks their IPAs ass!

Draught at WBF. Clear red with medium white head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit, pine tree and caramel. Taste is semi-sweet with light bitter finish. Nice kick in flavor, enjoyable.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Pours a nice reddish brown with sticky tan lacing. Aroma is caramel, aromatic fresh piney citrusy hops. Flavor is earthy pine, hops, caramel, malt. Enjoying the hop profile of this red ale quite a bit. Nice brew.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Pours a lovely clear red with a beige head that dissipates quickly, leaving just the lacing. Beer smells like a hoppy explosion, but isnít overwhelmingly bitter when you taste it, definitely has a good balance between the malts and hops. Very nice finish. Odell has produced a wonderful red ale and another fantastic beer to itís lineup.

notalush (4766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Loads of earthy, woody, resinous hop character in the aroma, on top of some sticky caramel maltiness - the flavor is kind of the same - a fairly substantial malt base with flavors of caramel and toasted grains - but the hops are the focus, and they add strong minty, herbal, and peppery character to the beer - a nice change of pace for the style - if you need to drink an amber, this isnít a bad choice.
