COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer’s caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

jmgreenuk (14120) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 18, 2018
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.

Dacrza (1326) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 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...

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 (1101) - 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!
