The Fest Devious line will be similar to Epic’s Exponential Line in that the beers will be limited batches of highly creative recipes designed for the Fall Seasons palate.

Fest Devious Release #2 will be the first curve ball, as it will be a WET HOP Harvest Ale, made with freshly picked Columbus and Cascade hops from Tim at Salt Lake’s High Desert Organic Hop Farm. Maris Otter and Briess premium malts at a 50:50 ratio along with and some Caramel 60 and Munich 20, for a nice malt and biscuit like flavor. Mild flavors combined with unique flavors of a Wet Hopping from Columbus and Cascade hops, interesting hop nose and late hop finish. Brewed on September 8, 2010.

Note: Ratings for 2012 bottles should be entered in the Batch #10 entry.

Bomber courtesy of douglas88 pouring clear copper with tan head. The aroma has muted spicy to earthy hoppy notes followed quickly by various malts. The taste has plenty of floral and spicy hops to go around as it rolls into earthy hops, malt sweetness, some biscuit malt qualities and then sweet caramel malts too.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Bottle (Release #2): Pours a copper color with a nice white head and nice lacing. The nose is sappy with some pine and light sawdust notes; ample caramel and toasty cinnamon malt notes. Seems very nicely balanced, very full and biscuity with perfume and light toasty hop notes. The flavor is much more malt focused but the present hops are earthy and present. Interesting wet hop beer. This tells me that wet hop beers suck, because the only thing I like about this beer is the toasty maris otter.

22oz Bottle thanks to inflatablehair. Pours out a cloudy copper topped with a small white head. Aroma was of sweet caramel, hop notes, and bread. Taste just the same as the aroma but with a some melon.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is caramel, some hops, and some biscuity quality. Flavor is similar with a medium body and hops all over. Interesting.

22 ounce bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy copper color with a small white head. A sweet musty caramel malt and light hops. The flavor is smooth and calm; caramel, light bitter hops, fruit, easygoing. More of a English Pale Ale. A nice Autumn beer.
