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, it’s almost as surprising as the season itself.

Not too many red ales to compare this too, but man, is this a tasty one. Highly recommended!

A wonderfully hoppy crisp red all with American hops that come through in the aroma and flavor. The color is red and vibrant. The flavor of the hops is nicely balanced with a malty caramel flavor. A very enjoyable beer.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. The aroma is fabulous: sweet, smoky and freshly hoppy. Slightly lighter in taste and mouthfeel than I expected; less of a prounced flowery hoppiness, more of a herby, light citrus bloom to the fresh tang. Plenty of orange peel and faint nut from the rye. Balanced and very good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a solid reddish amber. Malty upfront and then a kick of hops. Amazing red.

From the tap the color is auburn with an off white head, the aroma is citrus and hops with floral, taste is citrus crisp hoppy with a slightly sweet finish. Solid IPA not overpowering hops

Fruity aroma. Rich amber in color with a creamy head. Rather sweet with some toasty hops and a nice note of citrus. Extremely smooth and drinkable.

I don't usually like ipa's, but I do like this one. Probably the citrus. This is a keeper. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet aroma, beautiful ruby colour with white head. Moreish taste, piney malt and pleasant bitter tang. Refreshing after a long week!

Tasted 2/27/09. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a deep amber, ruby hue. Thick finger width of beige head. Very hoppy aromas. Notes of grapefruit and lemon citrus. Touch caramel malts in the aroma, but the hops definitely dominate. Medium bodied with a somewhat dulled malt profile. Caramel and toasty malts. And once again, the hop aspect is dominant. Earthy hops with a bright grapefuity flavor. Slightly acidic on the tongue at the finish. Finishes dry with a lingering acrid hop twang. This is fresh and really nice. While the balance of the profile might be a little skewed toward the hops, it still has a great malty palate. Once again, Odell nails it!

Aroma is hugely hoppy, sweet red fruit maltiness. Wow, is this an IPA? Taste is sweet fruit, hop bitterness on the back-end and some hop-derived fruit on the front end too. Did I mention this was hoppy? Get some toasted bread in the middle; sugar, carbonated bitterness. Yum. Very solid.
