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.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle. Deep dark copper colour, average cream coloured head. Aroma is equally toasty and hoppy. The malts here are toasty with notes of chocolate. The hops are sharp and piney. This is a compelling amber, tasty and rich. I liked it.

This is the only beer i have ever spit out. I said screw after the first sip and i threw the 6 pack in my toilet and pissed all over it. Than i scooped it back out and drank it and was much better. Al ittle bit of acidity which was a big improvement over the Hay taste it orgianlly had. WORST BEER EVER!!!

Part of the New Belgian fall variety pack. Probably my favorite from the pack. Nice flavor with a decent hop profile.

DocJitsu (824) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a clear brown-copper with a short, sticky caramel-colored head. Roasted smoky malt and grapefruit aromas. The moutfheel is a little thin and wet with some scrubbing toward the end and a powdery finish. This is a Porter meets Calofornia Pale Ale. Coffee up front with floral and citrus hops being picked up in that order. There are some interesting things going on with this one. Otherwise, it’s average.

Looks deep dark and red. Lots of interesting notes on this one. But it is a little one note and quick on the finish.

Pours reddish brown and has a tan head. Has a citrus aroma with notes of roasted malts and floral hops. Has a good balance of malts and hops in the taste. The hops is crisp but nothing over powering. Overall, an enjoyable beer.
