look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

This pours a stunning cinnamon color. Gorgeous but no head. The smell is slightly vegetal, but is really not much at all. Taste is essentially missing on the initial taste, then a lingering burn in you throat. There are some pepper flavors, no noticeable hops. It's a decent beer overall, but I came away think they could have done much more with it, with more initial hop or malt flavor and less heat.
