Notes/Commercial Description:
Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer's caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

This beer pairs excellently with toffee, caramel apples, or your favorite horror flick.

A-Pours a slightly hazy, deep amber hue. Chill haze. Mild, tan head sits atop the beer and fizzles off a bit leaving wavy lace.

S-Balanced and rather full on both ends of the spectrum. Lots of grapefruit and candied orange hoppiness. A bit dose of caramel, too. Solid pine hops. Not very complex but it works.

T-The hops are fairly tame here. They start with subtlety and finish with a rising medley of flavors like: grapefruit, grass, lemons, light mint, pine and candied oranges. Caramel and toffee and dense breadiness. Very balanced and the flavors taste more unique than the aroma.

M-A bit full and chewy. Softer bitterness. A bit of a sipper.

O/D-This I have wanted to try for a while. Psyched to see it in bottles. This was a bit of a disappointment, though. A bit too balanced for me and I don't think I'm too enamored with the hop profile here. In the end it's pretty good beer but I didn't live up to my lofty expectations.
