Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a hazy dark reddish colour almost brown with a mostly lasting frothy white head. The aroma is caramel malt, piney citrus woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp, bready malt, fruity, dry woody floral hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average to soft carbonation. trapped (5353) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 3, 2018

DATE: January 14, 2018... OCCASION: coming down after a thrillingly improbable finish to the Vikings/Saints game... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... pours a dark ruby red body, murky and foreboding--too dense to see through... the thick, creamy off-white head sits like a velvet cake frosting, and it laces like a stormy sky, and plateaus as a two-finger mesa--attractive! Immediate resin, spruce, and earthy malts leave the best impression; secondary scents of toasted malts that suggest soon-to-be-born bread, a little yeast funk, and some vegetable... traces of citric aroma, but not as much as expected... a creamy, frothy, breathy ale that is smooth, soft and extremely drinkable--nothing dead here, though a bit of butter accompanies the finish... a lingering, pleasant experience.... the flavor is resin, mango, peach, and light pine... the caramel promised is secondary, with the sweetness blunted by vegetable and toasted bread malts... I like the overall experience, with its creamy comfortably encouraging the next sip, and each sip lacking a bite at a middle-of-the-road ABV... ultimately, a beer that probably pairs with Autumn well; here in January, it stands well but not out--other ambers have been maltier, sweeter, hoppier.... this does enough to be in the second tier of that conversation... gringo332 (655) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2018

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki.
Piana obfita trwała, zdobi szkło. Kolor czerwony mętny. Aromat niesamowicie intensywne owoce, truskawki, poziomki karmel. Amerykanski chmiel w formie zanikającej jak w idealnym ABW. Smak bogaty, złożony, są owoce, poziomki, truskawki, lekka żywiczność, cukierki owocowe i lekka słodycz, karmel. Chmielenie wyraźne przez leżakowanie już w zaniku, goryczka wysoka nie dominuje. Całość dawała by efekt wyśmienitego ABW gdyby nie to ze piwo sprawia wrażenie rozcieńczonego, ewidentnie brakuje to więcej ciała i mocy, nie to ze jej tu nie ma, ale intensywne smaki nie grają z lekkim pijalnym charakterem. Jako RED ALE jest to najlepsze piwo z tego stylu jakie do tej pory piłem i należy mu się czerwone WOW. J_man (1088) - Tustin, California, USA - DEC 4, 2017
Strong toasted wood and molasses aromas along with equally strong hoppy notes from a crystal clear dark amber body with a reddish tinge. The taste is immediately sweet toffee and dark caramel quickly followed by a rush of green grassy and pine hop bitterness that balance each other and also fight each other for dominance. In the end, they do reach an equilibrium and settle to a woody aftertaste with a lingering bittersweet chocolate note. This tastes like a bigger beer than it is and it's one delicious monster. Happy Halloween!
