Went down to Brewhaven in Nampa, ID today with my growler looking for something I hadn't had. Well I got what I wanted and I am glad cuz this stuff is pretty good!

This beer has the most beautiful color of ruby red that I have come across and to top it off the head is a gorgeous creme color that laces the whole way down the glass! Why do I love lacing so much!? It makes my glass look like a sexy lady thats why!

First thing you smell are the epic hops Amarillo, Crystal, and Chinook to be exact! second you smell a wonderful roasted barley followed by that awesome alcohol infused Co2.

At first it has a mouth filling hopieness that mellows into those wonderful roasted malts making the awesome red brew which mellows out into a sticky bitterness that never quite leaves your palette

Mouth feel is crisp and not to overly carbonated even at cold temps it doesn't explode with carbination in your mouth. As it warms up and smooths out its just as crisp and when its gone your back to the fridge for another pull off of your growler...

12oz can picked up at Brewer's Haven today... Poured into my standard tulip... Pretty fantastic light tan head... foamy with good retention and lacing... the brew is lightly hazed amber.

Bigger than expected nose.. smells of pithy citrus with dark toast.. all around pretty darn good.

Flavor begins with a proper bitterness... dry toasty malt ... a bit of snappy biscuits or something like that... fermented out caramel .. hoppiness is pithy citrus and a lesser piney note.

Medium/light body... decent carbonation..

Very well done brew... I did not go into this thinking I would enjoy it as much as I did.. Payette hit this one pretty much out of the park.

12 oz can from a 6 pack bought from Winco superstore in S. Salem $7.49 Pours a nice dark amber with a good sized light tan head, that fades but leaves good lace. Good balanced aroma with toffee malts and niceresiny and citrus hopping. Smooth and balanced taste..with the malts winning at the end. Nice thick smooth low to medium carbonation. Nice beer

My favorite winter beer in Idaho thus far.
Pours into a a lake of red velvet with cream on top, out of a can sir.
I want to give it to a cold kid in Russia.
Boozy for the breed but it pulls it off.
Smiling, laughing, fun, red-faced (it's heavy) buzz.
Ben Franklin would like this beer.
