This one is very good. It does remind me of Hop Wallop and Ruination, although not as citrusy as Hop Wallop or as astringent as Ruination. Great hop presence, and great balance. Get some while you can.

I had this at the Michael Jackson beer tasting in Philadelphia in 2005 and I loved it. What a great surprise. Hopped with Centenial and Cascade like a Hop Devil, with great malt taste, bitterness, and orange and pine complexity, but with enough simcoe to give it a crisp almost miny taste like a Hop Wallop. A favorite now, along with Hop Wallop and Stone Ruination, though less grapefruity than either. May not be for everyone ... this is a real slam of hops.

A decent pale ale, not quite an IPA in my book. Not sure where the overpowering hops are. A touch of vanilla.

This beer reminds me of Stone’s Arrogant Bastard and Victory’s Hop Devil... and yet it is slightly more refined and truly unique. A Bronze medal winner at the 2002 World Beer Cup, this beer offers a uniquely fresh profile in that it is bottle conditioned! It pours a cream colored, 1/4’ head that holds fairly well, and offers an incredibly intense hop aroma of both American and English hops; well backed by a sweet caramel maltiness. The moutheel is creamy and full with a medium level carbonation. The flavor is equally balanced between sharp hop flavor and sweet caramel maltiness. The finish is on the sweet side, turning dry, and finally revealing a ton of hop flavor. Unlike any beer I’ve ever had before; although the original brewer has left and this beer has not been even remotely the same in recent versions.
