The Devil Dog will chew you up and leave you whimpering for more, At 98 IBU’s 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 Pavlov’s 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

NICU (12) - Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2008
22oz bottle purchased at Belmont Station in Portland, OR.

Clear, copper colored beer capped with a thin, wispy head. Nose of grapefruit, some cattiness, some fusel alcohol heat, and just a touch of diacetyl buttery character.

The flavor carries more of the same, but throws in some grainy, bready malt and some fruity esters for good measure. The body is right where it should be; not too heavy, but hefty enough to support the massive amount of hops they tossed in. Subdued carbonation and silky texture create a creamy mouthfeel with just a little pricklyness around the edges caused by the hops finding their way into every nook and cranny of your mouth. The finish is surprising for a beer this hoppy. It leaves some spicy, piney hop resin in the sides of your mouth, but there’s almost no burning hop bitterness in your throat. I guess you could almost call it "smooth" which seems like a strange adjective to use when describing something that’s supposed to be so big and burly.

All in all its a pretty good beer, and I wouldn’t turn one down if it was offered, but it costs about the same as a bottle of Hopsickle, and I think I’d prefer one of those 9 times out of 10.

Gluepot (200) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
A rich golden/orange hue with a moderate nose of hops, some malt and orange peel. This is a very smooth and warm double, with a range of lush hops and a hint of melon. It is rich and easy drinking, but the finish is a bit on the weak side.

Padron4KM (705) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2015
22 oz bottle. Clear copper, creamy half inch tan head, sticky lace.
Aroma is pretty malty for an IPA, lots of sweet caramel, and roasty malt, but the hops start to peak through as it sits in the glass. Citrus, pine, resin.
Hops show up more in the flavor, with pine, grapefruit, earth, resin, all backed by some sweet caramel malt. Alcohol is well hidden, but it is a touch too sweet.
