COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fall is here and with it our seasonal ale, Red Hoptober. Shining like autumn leaves in a globe glass this beer pours a dark and lovely garnet as it builds a bright, inviting head. The Eldorado hops are bold and present with a distinct, piney flavor while the caramel malt and roasted barley provide a backbone to stand Red Hoptober upright. Centennial and Cascade hops offer hints of citrus, tickling the nose, while the tongue carries a subtle, roasty tone that pairs pleasantly with the warming bite of bitter. Red Hoptober is perfect for shortening days and campfire nights.

Transfer from BA review on 10-21-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a clear reddish amber color with a one finger off white head. The head fades overall a moderate amount of time to give a decent level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is of roasted malt as well as some more hop heavy aromas. The hops are a mix of pine and some herbal aromas. Less sweet then the traditional red, but quite nice. Taste – The taste starts out with a bready and nutty flavor with hints of some roasted malt. With these flavors are a good presence of pine. The pine fades a bit more toward the middle as some caramel flavors come to the tongue. At the end some of the sweetness fades again as more pine and a lighter herbal hop come to the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly above average side with a carbonation level that is average. Good for the lightly roasted and hop flavors of the beer while still maintaining a great drinkability. Overall – A fairly tasty brew with some nice mild to medium hop presence and decent roasted flavors.

Deep amber, creamy tan head. Malty and happy, just enough resinous hops to go with the malt bill.

On tap at New Belgium (GABF week 2012). Pours with a clear bronze hued body with a large tan head. Aromas are nutty and toasty, sort of victory like malt, maple and grainy with a light fruity notes. Flavors are light coffee, nutty and roasty, grainy, clean. Slightly strong bitterness for what was expected. Fuller carbonation with a relatively dry finish.

Red with a white head. The aroma is full of pine with some red ale malt. The flavor is fairly hoppy. I get some heavy pine and grass notes as well as some toffee character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
