New Belgium Hoptober: Great name and a great beer! The Hoptober pours with a clear deep golden color and light carbonation. The head is thick, pure white, pillowy and leaves a beautiful lacing. Aroma is very present with lots of hop. Hop flavor comes on strong at the start and lasts all the way through. The underlying malts are subtle and stay that way – the Hoptober is not too sweet as many types of ale are. There is a bit of bitter in the aftertaste. All in all, this is just what ale should be if you like complex hops winning over malt sweetness.
