Enjoyed at the brewery on March 2nd, 2012.

First of all, I love the name, after one of my favorite front range hiking spots, Devil's Head Firetower...about 5 miles from my front-door as a crow flies; there is a very minimal head; even less lacing; the beer is a dark red amber in color; it smells hoppy, with hints of chocolate and roasted malt on the nose; there's a crisp, almost dry hop flavor, although minimally bitter; the beer is well-balanced; it's similar to ODell's Red, although not as nuanced, and with a light malt aftertaste; mouthwise, this is pretty clean; I get more roasted malt the longer I keep the beer on my tongue.

16oz can $2.79. Dark red color, good head, decent lace. Aroma is weird, bits of caramel, malts, not bad. Flavor was pretty good caramel, mild citrus hops, very satisfying. ABV is a little higher than I would like but fuck it. I'd probably buy this again which is surprising because I feel like most local breweries who are new to packaging are just winging it.

Had this in a becker pint. Reviewed from notes.

Pretty amber to ruddy body with a few centimeters of khaki foam. It has okay retention, and a little bit of lace clinging to the side of the glass.

Aromas range from earthy and woody to citrus-centric and piney hops, more grapefruit than anything else. Also some bready malt coming through. A good range of scents, but very soft, and not exploding from the glass.

This has a nice hoppy profile on the palate! Again, a little bit of grapefruit, a great amount of pine, sort of flowery. Not nearly as much malt to detect here. And a nice bitter dryness on the swallow. Still, flavors just are not doing quite enough and are not big enough.

The medium heft is very appropriate, and Devil's Head Red drinks very smooth.

This is a very good hoppy red. Although the flavors and bouquet are more on the muted side of the spectrum, which is too bad, a lot to like in this beer.

outstanding! my first beer from pikes peak will not be my last. had this on tap at springs Orleans Cajun/creole place in Colorado springs. it pours a nice medium amber color with a frothy khaki head with nice lacing left behind. the nose is pretty hoppy for a red, and not sweet, more malty dry than malty sweet, which is appreciated. flavor boasts a nice hop, citric and bitter, with some woody elements, a lot like cascade or centennial, but I cannot prove either. it has a big body too, almost like oatmeal is involved, but I cant confirm that either. its sudsy and creamy and hoppy and bitter, but has some great malt balance and body, served ice cold it was a perfect compliment to my spicy crawfish rice dinner. sessionable, as I would not have guessed it to be over 7% abv. this is a beer much better that it probably realizes it is, and one that deserves some real attention. maybe the best born in Colorado red ale I have had, odell included! I mean that.
