COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in honor of the famous youtube video. Not quite red, not quite IPA...but quite big. This beer is built on a solid malt foundation of medium crystal, biscuit, and vienna for a considerable dose of toffee, bread and nutty flavors and aromas. We then laced the beer with hops throughout the process. First hops go into the first wort runoff and hops continue to be added through the boil, after boil, and then dry-hopped in our conditioning tanks at 37 degress. Ranbow 1 = MALT; Raibow 2 = HOPS: A double rainbow of flavors.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer served a very hazy reddish-orange amber color with a two finger head of white foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a good sum of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a toffee and caramel smell mixed with some bready aromas and a good showing of some hop. The hop are mainly of a more dank pine and earthy nature, but it also contains some other aromas of grass as well. Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and malty taste mixed with a bit of a caramel sweetness and some nice hop flavors of a pine and citrus nature. As the taste advances the citrus fades while the pine grows stronger and is joined by some earthy hop. With a little bit of a decrease in the sweeter caramel and an increase in the hop, one is left with a nice more dankly hopped bready taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the mix of breadiness, dank hop, and sweet the feel makes for a very flavorful and easy drinking brew overall. Overall, the feel was rather nice. Overall – This was a rather enjoyable and nicely hopped red ale. A good go to overall.

On Tap at PreFunk Meridian Clear deep mahogany with a persistent tan head and sturdy lacing. Plenty of toasted maltiness, hopped up and nearly a woody malty IPA Heavy body and full palate. Strong IBU trailer. A big beer all around.

kyzr (1326) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Cloudy amber pour with huge off white head. Big roasted malt and hoppy nose. Hoppy hit up front with a nice caramel malt body which also has a touch of sourness.

natejgood (468) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Pours a deep redish brown. No real head to speak of. Aroma of fruit. Smells very sweet. Interesting combination of flavors. Starts a bit sweet and malty and finishes a bit bitter and hoppy. Kind of an interesting beer but maybe not one that I will drink on a regular basis.

stevoj (3707) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 21, 2016
On tap Albertsons. 32 oz grunt fill. Dark amber, slightly muddy small creamy head, streaky lacing. Malts on the aroma, hops in the background, but take over the taste, where malts are in the backseat. Pretty well balanced beer, kind of light for a strong ale. Subtle warmth.

Beerandhockey8 (335) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - JAN 3, 2016
From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a very dark hazy brown-red, thick off white head. Nose is hoppy, light malt, floral, dough. Taste is medium bodied, very bitter. Finishes grainy and tough.

Gription79 (2793) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big caramel malt aroma, citrus and pine hop notes. The flavor is more of the same with some fruity alcohol. A clean well made IRA.

Draught at the brewery
Dark amber color, hazy. Solid caramel brew, moderately sweet, with a good resiny hopping. More interesting than the similar Rando IRA tasted side to side, and with no diacetyl.
