COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The devil made us do it. From the ABV and IBU figures to the fiendish use of Cascade, Perle and Willamette hops, Lucifer was whispering in our ears the entire time. Citrus and pine scents greet you and are followed by the sharp bitterness expected of an IPA. The beer’s true wickedness is revealed in the smooth Pale, Crystal 30 and wheat malts that surreptitiously broaden the beer’s appeal to more than just hopheads.

wmubronco1992 (601) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a cloudy caramel color. Medium off white head. Some lacing. Hoppy aroma. Flavor of grapefruit. Really bitter mouthfeel. The Diabolical name is perfect for this brew. Its quite a concoction. Just doesn’t seem all that balanced to me. Lots and lots of bitterness, but nothing to offset it. Not my favorite IPA.

MeadMe (1284) - Riverview, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2010
A: Pours a murky orange brown with a nice tall rocky off white head. Excellent retention and thick chunky lace. S: Aromas of bready malt, caramel, pine and grassy green hops. T: The malt is there up front. Sweet and bready with hints of caramel. The hops are mostly citric with a big bitter green dank finish. M: Medium in body, very bitter finish.

Onslow (1129) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Pour from an 11.5 oz stubby bottle. Cloudy orange amber brew with three fingers of persistent head, siettling down to a frothy film as the glass is sipped. Interesting and complex aroma that seems to be a blend of resin hops, grassy hops, and a caramel maltiness. Flavor is similarly somples iwth a decent malt backbone and resin, citrus, and grassy hops playing in and out as the swallow goes down. Ends with a long but delicious lingering bitterness. Most excellent.
