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

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 thereís 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 thatís supposed to be so big and burly.

All in all its a pretty good beer, and I wouldnít turn one down if it was offered, but it costs about the same as a bottle of Hopsickle, and I think Iíd prefer one of those 9 times out of 10.

Padron4KM (690) - 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.

GenDV138 (3538) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2015
4 oz pour on cask at ChurchKey. Clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of floral notes, citrus. Tastes of citrus, floral notes, tropical fruit, booze. Medium-light body with a dry and warm finish. Quite noticeable booze and warmth, possibly amplified by the temperature being on cask.

22 oz bottle pour split. Pours an orange color with a big foamy head. Nice hops and piney aroma. Thicker, creamy body to it with a ton of caramely malt flavor. Nice hoppiness to it. Rich malt flavor towards the end, and the double digit ABV is well hidden. Decent imperial here.

Bottle pour at home split thanks Andrew for sharing, golden amber pour, this beer has a unfinished taste to it, you get a lot of mash and wort taste in this beer. Not saying itís bad, itís just different.

craftbeersweden (368) - SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2015
Pour from a 22 Oz bottle I got from Total Wine & More Boynton Beach. Hazy, dark orange with a one finger high creamy white head. A lot of lacing stays on the glass when the head dissapears. Nose: A lot of hops! Orange, grapefruit, sugar, malt, apricot and peach. Taste: Nuts, pine resin, apricot, citrus, brown sugar and biscuits. Body: Full, complex body with light carbonation. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel. A very soft beer! The alcohol is very well hidden. A great balanced beer between the bitterness and the sweetness. If I had the chance I would go back to this beer often!

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
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.
