3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 23rd, 2012 - Circling back to my roots, I dry the Pikes Peak Devils’ Head Red: a predictably sweet and malty brew, with a deep, dark ginger complexion, bubbles with a shade of pinkish blush, with a mostly stable balance between a citrus, piney hops and the dark, caramel sweetness of an almost-too-sticky red brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Reddish brown appearance with a lacy off-white head. Hoppy aroma of floral notes, herbs, grass, pine, light citrus fruit and a touch of nutty caramel-like malts. Similar flavor, medium plus bitterness, adding a touch of chocolate malt. Medium body, smooth and crisp with a lingering finish.
