Hoptober clone recipe
Red Hoptober! Ok I googled it and I found nothing definitive. No one went from recipe to glass and said Eureka! Does anyone have a good all-grain recipe for this wonderful beer? Suggestions on yeast?:mug:

I just tried Red Hoptober for the first time, and it's great! Subscribed to see if someone has a recipe....

New belgium is pretty cool and gives the basics in the website



ABV - 6.0%
IBU - 60
Hops - Target, Nugget, Cascade, El Dorado, Centennial
Malts - Pale, C-80
Body - Medium
Aroma - A bouquet of lush floral, bright citrus and undertones of herbal and spice and airs of caramel kissed coffee.
Mouthfeel - Heavier start, hop bitter middle and definite crisp finish.
Flavor - A cupful of sweet fig, tropical fruit, toffee, roasted nuts and hoppy bitterness. None of which overwhelm, they simply meet in the middle to attempt balance.
Visual - Brilliant glowing flickering red hue.
I really liked last years hoptober, not tried the new one yet. So far only seen it in folly packs, and I am the one guy who doesn't like fat tire.

Your not alone, I am not a fan either!

Went to the New Belgium website where they have a "Learn More about Red Hoptober with the Beer Masher" -- but the link requires something called "Silverlight" that isn't supported by my browser & Operating system. (Firefox/Linux).

Can anyone post the info about RH found on that page, here?

Couldn't copy the link you wanted, but the info matched identically to the post 2 up from you.

Drinking me one now after work, delicious, even though its 101 degrees out.

Had a bomber of Hoptober the other day (Labor Day), and I have another one saved for this weekend. I remember it was tasty, but I'll have to drink the next one to remember what it was like. I had a few other amazing beers that day (Orval, Bell's The Oracle, New Belgium's Super IPA, a few homebrews and I think maybe a Fat Tire bomber) and my taste bud to memory connection wasn't functioning fully by that point.

Regardless, I'm always psyched to see somebody try to take the basic info given by the brewer and form it into a more complete recipe. I'll be watching this thread, for sure.

I just tried the Hoptober and there's nothing about this beer I'd want to replicate. Not impressed.
