COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This heavily hopped ale is light orange in color. It is dry hopped with Columbus, and Cascade hops from the Yakima Valley in Washington. This technique allows more aroma and lends a unique citrus flavor to the beer. Hop Heads Rejoice!!!

A copper / amber appearance, some lacing that sticks and a lasting head. Tons of hops which are a little overpowering. Smells of citrus and pine from the hops, but still has some sweet/malt smell as well. The flavor is a little more balanced than the smell. Not too heavy, good mouthfeel and an enjoyable hoppy-bitter finish/aftertaste.

Devil’s Peak IPA is supposed to be their "monster" beer offering for the big flavored beer aficionado or, perhaps blatant hopheads. Unfortunately for them, "big" apparently means "bitter." Deep orange in color, it has a thin, watery body and very low carbonation. The nose is pungent herbal and, using a selection of domestic bittering hops, it’s very dry and bitter from the initial sip to the long, dry, never-ending finish. There’s almost no balance, as bitterness overwhelms any sense of malt or sweetness. Did I mention it was bitter? Serving type: on-tap

sampled at MBGSF’10 - caramel malts, dry piney hops with a touch of citrus. Nothing to write home about, but solid.

Tmoney99 (11611) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Tap sample at brewpub. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that went well with my calamari app.

Surprised at the low rating here- This is a citrusy ale with a clean smooth finish-- The aroma is outstanding and the finish is as clean and balanced as any IPA with a 6.8% ABV would or could be! Truly a fine IPA and worth trying.-All this is a most relaxed setting! You will not be disappointed!

Part of sampler at brewpub. Pours clear copper with small white head. Aroma is hops, pine, citrus and caramel malts. Flavor is light hops, caramel malts and some citrus and very light pine. Not the most hoppy IPA I have had. Good amount of malt. Nothing special.

greco (41) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Poured from firken. Nice citrus hop aroma. Nice hoppy flavor (grapefruit) with an average malt backbone with some sweetness. I enjoyed this thorougly. I was pleasantly surprised considering the 33 percentile it falls into here. Maybe they changed thier recipe or maybe the firken is the way to serve it. I for one recommend as an excellent example of style and american hop showcase.

lumberjack (178) - Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Aroma is grapefruit. Taste is of very citric hops with a fair amount of malt sweetness to balance it out a bit. Palate is thicker than many IPAs. This is on the bitter side, even for the style, but I enjoyed i very much. Nice example of a West-coast style IPA.

Nephilium (1463) - Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Strong citrus/pine hop aroma. Pours a clear orange/amber with a quickly fading white head. Nice grapefruit hop punch at the beginning of the beer, fading into a touch of caramel. Long bitter finish. A very drinkable IPA.

Draught at the brew pub. Very hoppy with the cascade piney aromas shining through. Body is assertively hoppy tasting but maintains balance. Decent mouthfeel. Reading the other ratings this beer seems inconsistent, should try to re-rate.
