The Devil Dog will chew you up and leave you whimpering for more, At 98 IBUís and 5.2 pounds of hops to the barrel it is an all out assault on the senses. Devil Dog Started as a labor of love but quickly took on a life of its own, leaving us drooling like Pavlovís dogs at the mere mention of its name. Triple dry hopped and at 10% ABV, more than one of these bad boys will cause you to howl at passing strangers and chew up your toys, or anything else you can get your sharp little teeth on. Hops: Columbus, Northern Brewer, Ahtanum, Cascade and Simcoe Malt: Pale, Carmel and Munich

Bottle from Hop and Hound, Bothell, WA; good price; 10.9% ABV
It pours a hazy orange-copper-amber color with thick creamy head. Caramelly brew, sweet but not syrupy, mellow, fruity, with a touch of vanilla; it has a good body and itís not chewy; it provides a lot of hop resins witr some piney character. Possibly too sweet in the final.
Very good, not exciting as a pure pale malt IIPA, but also more drinkable than a first style darker example.

stevoj (2384) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Hop assault right from the beginning. Hazy orange/amber body with small soapy head. Aroma is strong pine cleaner, taste is sharp and bitter, hops and citrus. Tang hides the high ABV which lurks in the background, but does provide some warmth in the throat. Medium lingering bitter finish.

dlovell2 (950) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Cloudy copper color with off white head. Aroma fruity malt with citrus and pine. Caramel malt with a bitter pine finish. Purchased this bottle then realized it had expired in December 2012.

hfmejias (872) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAR 14, 2014
22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, orange with a small head but a lot of lacing. Aroma of hops and citrus fruit combined with some malts. Taste a bit on the sweet side, the bitterness of the hops is there but perhaps a bit too sweet. Not bad, quite enjoyable.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2014
I have a devil dog at home. 18 years old, full of spit and vinegar, two year cancer survivor, lived her life allergic to grass and with a bad liver. Now blind and deaf but well loved, comfortable, lives to eat and smell her way through all her haunts in the back yard. This devil dog beer does not match her, all the right parts, funk, fruit, citrus, alcohol, and malt, but just never all comes together. Not bad, just not special. Wouldnít say no if offered though ...

airrick2003 (566) - Louisiana, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Appearance: very hazy bronze color, pours with a huge beige head, the head is very creamy Aroma: syrup, grass, roasted malt, grain, butter Taste: citrus, apple maybe, alcohol, bitter finish, Palate: average carbonation, leaves mouth feeling wet, has a bitter aftertaste Overall: this is a good IPA with lots of subtle complexities about it, the alcohol is a bit high and dominates much of the experience,

patrick767 (3672) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2014
22 oz bottle - June 2012 bottle rated on Jan 6, 2014. Gusher. Thatís not a good sign. Once it stopped overflowing, it poured alright... hazy orange with a big off-white head. Then it got weird. I smell some grapefruit but more than that, I smell dirt and rot. No, itís not "earthy" in some positive way. Itís more like the bottom of the compost bin. What the hell? The gusher part makes me think infection but itís not sour. Fortunately it doesnít taste like compost, not that Iíve tasted compost. Itís extremely bitter with some citrus notes, an underpowered malt backbone, an underlying off character, and alcohol. I think that in the flavor the massive bittering hops mostly but not entirely overwhelm the serious flaws that show up in the aroma. Disappointing.

Beautiful beer! This is never a let down. In fact, the only beer that does not fit my style from this brewery, is one of their more popular beers. The huckleberry cream ale. Everything else is money.

Nocturne (919) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013
650ml bottle. Mostly clear amber with a lovely frothy head. Nose is piney hops, touch of winter berry underneath. Taste consists of a base of sweet caramel, above which sits fruity mango, citrus and lots of hop bitterness. Nice amount of carbonation. Very drinkable for the ABV. Not quite excellent but tasty and enjoyable for sure.

Bule (920) - California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
22oz bottle at Beerworks in Medford. Pours a murky amber color without much head. Lots of hops and a bit of yeast flavor. Alcohol only slightly noticeable.
