Finger plus of larger bubbles, close to no denser foam, eggshell white in color, thins out swiftly, the lacing looks like a spider’s web which slowly dissolves in the wind, no consistent streaks. Reddish brown liquid with a more bronzed amber orange than bright tint, looks “unfiltered” and verges on cloudy, there are some tiny yet active bubbles in there breaking a sweat to get to the surface. Pure pink grapefruit and tangerine citrus rise decisively in the nose, quietly mixes in flowers and yellow apple, apricot, pear fruit but it curiously stays on point, citrus and more citrus, no real herbaceous bite, likewise, no real malty cream, while monochrome its utter freshness is very appealing. Medium-bodied, broad palate coverage with the sort of creaminess which is not soft so much as yielding, it caresses the mouth’s contours but stays nimble. Touch more cocoa and pine here, the grapefruit citrus moderates into apricot, peach, kiwi fruit flavors. The carbonation is good plus, a complementary aspect. Maple sugar candy, molasses more than honey or pine, as stated before it consistently chooses cleanliness over reaching for complexity and potential jumble. Yet, in no way simple, just ups the drinkability.

A. The bottle says " Red C pours with a crimson red color"... not red at all closer to an amber.
S. Cascade nose with a hint of the tea flavor to follow.
T. Nice bitterness but tea like flavor prevails
M. Mouth feel was appropriate.
O. Label is very deceptive as there is no "deep red hue". "Bold & Aggressive" and 34 IBUs should not be on the same label ....maybe in 1990. Not very often i pour the rest of the bottle down the drain. Very dissapointing maybe i got an old one but would not buy again.

Excellent Beer from a great nano brewery.

Great smell upfront of hops with a very well balanced finish. Nothing more to say about this one that has not already been reviewed but this is a definite MUST try fresh. Having this beer on the Randall makes it even more delicious.

Pushed through a Randal (sp) full of Cascade or Centennial or Citra or some combination of "C" hops at Shatzi's on Main in Po-town and served to me by the Brewer hisself, Justin. I watched this kid beat his dad in Homebrew competitions for years ( tho Dad won more often) and I was almost as proud as he to be drinking his beer.
A deep ruby/copper color topped with a dense head of creamy foam. Aromas of classic "C" hop citrus and evergreen overpower the dark crystal malt usually present due to the randalization but the malt flavors come through in the mouth with hints of roasted grains and nutty, biscuity notes. A bit thin on body especially when cold, it is a strong session ale with firm but not harsh back end bittering at the finish.
A solid Flagship Beer from a Nano Brewery you will be hearing more about before long. Go get em boys!
