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.

Pours a dark ruby with a thumbs width beige head. Nice lacing. Wow... what a wonderful wonderful aroma. Sweet and hoppy and incredibly balanced between the two. Nectarine, grapefruit, a little pine. I could just sit and sniff this all night I think. Flavor is just as good. The grapefruit and pine seem to hit you in the forefront but its balanced extremely well by the malt backbone which provides some delicious sweetness and breadiness. A nice silky mouthfeel with an appropriate level of activity from the carbonation. Medium bodied. I think I am having the same reaction to this as I did with Deschutes Red Chair, which has since become one of my favorite beers. I had this Red once before a couple years ago and did not enjoy anywhere close to how much I am enjoying it this time around. Odell with a grand slam on this one and think this just might have overtaken their IPA as my favorite beer from them. The only thing that blows about this beer is that its seasonal. And the name is rather unoriginal as well.

Mellow leafy and malty aroma. Very drinkable. Perfect amount of hop presence. Not overly bitter. Definitely some toasty malts.

Aroma of sweet malt, stone fruit, a light hint of cherry, slight citrus. Appearance is a brilliant clear red copper color. Similar to aroma, tastes of slight caramel malt, and subtle cherry and citrus. Medium body with moderate carbonation. This is a beautiful beer!

What a beautiful beer! Deliciously red, great lacy head, full body. Malty goodness with assertive hops. No hint of "watery, and syrupy sweet" as many reds can tend toward here at all. Right up there with Nosferatu as the best red I've had! Thanks Uncle Brian for the hook up! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It would probably be more accurate to call this a red IPA. Very nice bitterness and citrus/pine flavor. Great aroma to boot.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Bottle. This just came out and I was eager to try it as I am a big fan of O’dell’s other beers. I was not disappointed. Really pretty red color with a pillowy finger and a half head. Pretty good lacing throughout. Nose is citrus and hop flowers, a little pine. Smooth mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. Really nice hoppy flavor that fades to slightly sweet as the aftertaste fades. This is a severely good beer. Much closer to an IPA than an amber ale. I’ll have to try this side by side with their IPA. Definitely worth seeking out.

12oz bottle. Resiny citrus hop aroma. Brownish ruby red color with slight head. Mild sweetness blends into a light caramel malt, all held together with a pleasant bitterness. Medium body, a touch oily, and just the right amount of carbonation with a crisp hoppy finish. Excellent compliment to the onset of spring (even though it snowed this morning).

Very red. Foamy antique white head. Aroma like heaven, taste like awesome. It smells lightly floral with a nice grapefruit note. The body is medium light but filly satisfying. Good, strong bite. Whets the whistle properly. Worthy of a growler.
