New Belgium Red Hoptober, originally uploaded by adambarhan.
A: Had in a bottle at the lake so couldn’t really tell but I would guess light brown in color.
S: This is dank and spicy: grass, marijuana, citrus, black pepper; some bready and slightly burnt malts but mostly really dank hops
T: Doesn’t taste as dank as it smells; much maltier with that typical, slightly burnt NB malt profile; some grassy hops with a touch of citrus; not bad but not as good as aromas hinted
F: Medium body and fairly creamy; a touch thin on back end
O: This is a nice beer, but man does it smell awesome–I just wish that translated more in the taste. I will have to try this again in a glass for the proper treatment
Serving type: bottle
