Red Hoptober is a dark garnet ale with a bright head and three varieties of hops. El Dorado hops from Central Washington are bold and present with a distinct, piney flavor as well as citrus notes. The caramel malt and roasted barley provide a sturdy backbone. Centennial and Cascade hops bring more hints of citrus, and a subtle roasty tone follows through each sip.

“Fall seasonals are a terrific transition from hot weather’s lighter beers into the warm embrace of winter beers,” says New Belgium Brewer Grady Hull. “Red Hoptober is perfect for a cool day fishing or a relaxing night around the campfire.”
