I like this better than last year's Fall seasonal from New Belgium. Purchased in a Folly Pack (probably the most solid 12 pack you'll find at a grocery store) and poured into a 12oz mug. Hoptober is as advertised, hoppy. But not too hoppy, or too anything for that matter. In it are hints of dry citrus and fairly medium hops, with a decent amount of carbonation that adds an initial sharpness to the beer. As with many beers from New Belgium this beer tastes of good ingredients and modest aims. For what it is, and more importantly what it costs (Folly 12-Pack for 18.99reg, 13.99sale at your local Albertson's) Hoptober is pretty darn good.
