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.

The appearance was amber with a red tint. Aroma was dominated by citrus and pine hop notes. The flavor was mostly hoppy with citrus notes, but low bitterness. The beer had good carbonation and body. This is a good amber ale with excellent hop aroma.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2009
12oz. bottle. Vaguely Satanic label art. Fruity, citric and lightly sweet aroma, with toasted caramel malts, pineapple, mild grapefruit and pear and perhaps a touch of grape candy. Clear, attractive red color with a lasting, fine, uneven, off-white head and some nice lacing to match. Flavor profile is balanced a bit more towards the hoppy side, which is how I tend to prefer examples of this style, luckily, with suggestions of sweet, sugary, toffeeish malts, red apple, bubblegum, piney, earthy, citric hops and a moderate amount of drying bitterness for balance. Amply carbonated and a bit oily, with a medium body. Nice rendering of a decently hoppy American Red Ale, very drinkable.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 4, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a two finger head that leaves lacing all over the glass. Smells is huge floral and pine hops. Taste is very balanced. Starts out with a nice hoppy floral bite that fades into caramel smooth malt flavors. Complex and very tasty.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2010
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.

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 it’s 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.
