Devils Head Fire Tower has a commanding view for hundreds of miles. Charged with spotting fires, for more than 70 years. Devils Head Red is a full flavored Ale which commands taste buds for hundreds of miles. The climb to the fire tower is worth the view, and this beer is worth the drink. Please enjoy responsibly (both the beer and the national forest).

A hue as red as the devil’s head, this beer looks beautiful. A whitetail head and an sweetly inviting scent that elevates it’s toffee flavors when drunk. Just a superb red. There’s enough toasty crystal and victory malts to round out the earthy spruce from the hops. You are immersed in miles of wilderness on the nose & tongue. There’s a harmony of sweet with bitterness & roasted chocolate. Pike’s Peak Brewing has made an incredibly delicious & balanced brew.

Tall boy can extra from an IP trade at Sour’d in Spet. Poured a super muddy reddish brown with an average sized bubbly light beige head. Aroma of earth, bad chocolate, chalky, dough and dry dusty bread. Flavor is a little harsh, chocolate, amber and crystal malts, touch of molasses. Meh, not very good.

Poured from a 16oz can from Todd. Pours a nice red-ish color and decent amount of aroma. A little to roasty for me, but a solid beer.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear copper with a smooth, thick creamy beige head. Tastes like floral and pine hops, nutty malt and some caramel. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like nutty malt, pine hops, and some grapefruit and floral notes.

Very clean, clear dark red with fluffy white head. Floral hop aroma. Bite up front but good malt balance - significant sweet malt background, but the hops are what takes center stage here. Lingering smooth and slightly dry finish.

16 oz can pours reddish brown with a light tan head. Malty, bready aroma is pretty muted, but no real off aromas. Flavor is pretty bland, pretty malty but not very sweet. Might be a bit oxidized. Really boring beer.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers), with notes of alcohol, black tea, toffee. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. The aroma’s pleasant, but in the mouth it’s a clumsy, goopy, syrupy sweet extract homebrew sorta experience. Hard to drink.

16 oz. can 7.3 ABV per the label. Pours a thin, poorly retained, ivory head, over a hazy, dark amber (SRM 18) body....nose is pine, resin, light citrus from the hops, cereal, toffee/caramel notes, no esters, balanced.....taste is heavy malts initially, with cereal, toast, hints of nuttiness, no esters, then pine citrus notes from the hops, finishing with mild bitterness, balanced between the malts and hops....mouth feel, body medium, mild alcohol warmth, slight astringency, low carbonation. This is one of those "bridge" beers so beloved by craft brewers. It isn’t quite an Amber, Red, or IPA. It is somewhere twixt and tween. It is a nice beer well balanced, and an easy drinker. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

This beer is hard to rate. Sometimes it has an amazing light hop character, sometime it is just overly malty. I would say 8 out of 10 kegs I absolutely love, the other 2 leave me wanting something different.
