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, its almost as surprising as the season itself.

Growler from the taproom. Really pretty red-brass color with nice foam lacing down the glass. Evident dry-hopping, citrus and pine aroma. Easy drinking style (What is amber anyway?) Plenty of malt backs up the big bitter hop finish. Id call it an IRA- India Red Ale.

Pours a dark amber color with some ruby in there as well with a medium off white head that left some good lacing around the glass. The aroma is pine, citrus, some earthy spices as well. The flavor is similar to the aroma. There is some pine and citrus hop bitterness up front and finishes with some earthy spice rye notes on the backend.

Pours wonderfully, a reddish, -orange. Lovely malty, funky nose. Grapes, berries, hay, grain. Nice on the tongue too, medium bodied, pleasant carb. Well balanced, dark fruit, some pine, rich florals...A lovely marriage of malt and hop.

12oz bottle. Murky burgundy-brown body. Steady beige head. Pretty solid beer, doesnt lean into the amber malt excessively, but could easily still be classified as a West Coast Amber. Nice malt depth. Respectable classic NW hop balance. Pretty good stuff.

tmoreau (4167) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2017
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass at home, showing a rubied amber color, with a rocky layer of tan froth, and foamy spots & ribbons of lacing. The aroma was a caramelly sweet scent immediately out of the bottle, then a touch of earthiness, and esters with some citrus & tropical ripeness. The taste was similar, and the body was a bit less than medium, with okay carbonation, some creaminess to the mouthfeel, and parched rye without the spice. The bitterness was moderate amounts of citrus, earthiness, and resin, followed by the finishing dryness. A decent rendition of a Red IPA.

Beautiful red color. Very pronounced hop aroma and taste. One certainly knows one is drinking an IPA with this. One glass is enough for me, though, since I sort of got tired of drinking it and wanted to move on to something else such as their regular IPA.

BenDover (228) - Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Aroma is piney, grassy, some citrus. Taste is a tad sweet and malty, nice hops, maybe a touch of rye. I am not picking up so much on the fruity/grapefruit flavors others have noted. Really good stuff.

dlihcsnatas (706) - Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Deep amber with no head that could be due to how slowly I poured this into the glass to not disturb all the junk at the bottom of the bottle. Still had some bits swimming about even though I poured it slowly. Aroma was mostly citrus hop but the taste was right off citrus with some toffee like flavors followed by a bitter maybe pinish aftertaste. Not a good looking brew but a good drinking one. Glad I got the whole six pack instead of a sampler bottle.

Bottle. Reddish-Amber in colour. Hoppy; floral and resinous piney hops. Fruity; tangy grapefruit citrus, oranges, tropical fruits, pineapple. Solid Malty base; caramel, toffee. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance. Hoppy citrus fruity over malty backbone. Tasty. Liked this. Nice beer! (2009-09)

coachd (748) - Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Predominantly pine hop aroma with a considerable amount of brown sugar scented malt sweetness. Very pretty crimson color with a large cream colored head. Nice malty flavor, similar to a red ale with a fairly weak yet earthy hop bite at the end. Good palate - dense for the ABV, low carbonation, smooth. Solid offering from Odell.
