Hoptober is brewed with pale and wheat malts, and, well, a whole bunch of different kinds of hops. Five kinds in fact, according to the bottle. It resembles a pale ale, with a lot of hoppy bitterness, but a bit richer and smoother and bready, which I’m attributing to the wheat. Medium body, good bitterness, this is a nice seasonal from New Belgium.
I give it a 3.8 out of 5.
