Pours a dark and slightly hazy amber color with a pretty nice light tan colored head. Good looking beer.
Nose has a nice blend of caramel, brewed tea, and pine/earthy hop notes.
Taste is of caramel malts, sweet and creamy with some spices and brewed tea notes. Finish is crisp with and earthy hop finish. Nice, but a bit on the sweet side.
Mouthfeel is quite good. Smooth, with nice full body.
Overall, a very solid offering. If I had my way, I'd dial back the sweetness a little bit, but this is still a tasty and well made brew. Nice first beer from my new local brewery.

New brewery in Redding. Figured I had better leave some reviews for the beers I tried. Out of the three I had, this one was my favorite.
Appearance: slightly hazy, deep red hue. Beer had about a one finger, white creamy head that left decent lacing in the glass.
Smell: malty. There was also a slight smell of floral hops and a bit of citrus, but a very malty nose. Bready, with some caramel as well.
Taste: taste followed nose. Big malt flavor, with a decent hop wallop. Very sessionable for a 7+% alcohol beer. Caramel malts mixed with doughy bread flavors. A good pint.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and pleasant.
Overall: A good beer from Reddings new Brewery. I enjoyed this pint.

This is my favorite beer from Redding's newest brewing company. A big congratulations to Jeff and Jenny for finally bringing craft beer that is going to stay in Redding. This beer has an awesome red hue to it, coupled by a great malty and slightly hoppy nose. The taste is smooth, well balanced and in my opionion contains a fantastic selection of various malts complimented by a good variety of hops to create an easy drinking flavor. Overall, a job well done and I can't wait to try more beers that come from this brewery.
