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.

Aroma was interesting, but a bit weak. Hints of several things, but I would have liked a stronger citrus aroma. Nice, pillowy head with cloudy orange-copper body. Taste was slightly above-average -- certainly not bad at all, but nothing extraordinary. There was a lot going on with the palate. Lots of life with this and a bit of sting (in a very good way), but fell short of perfection because it seemed watery too. I would love to have more of this beer, but I would choose several other IPAs over this one. Still, I’m glad I had it.

I dig this one, for the most part. Pint pour in a dirty glass at some random pub. Pours fairly amber with a decent off white head. Nose is floral and flowery, citrus hops and a little bready. Flavor is much nicer, juicy citrus and some papaya like flavors. Medium body and quite drinkable. I could do it again.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice hazy golden glazed orange color with a one finger white foamy head that mushroom caps and gently subsides with a nice rocky foaminess hovering above the top of the beer. The lacing was there once the head finally dissipated. It graced the sides of the glass in a speckled sort of manner. The smell had a nice gentle rolling blend of sweet citrus to sweet sharp pine coming through in a pungent way. The taste took those flavors and added a really nice bitterness to assist in the blend of the beer. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability running about my mouth and tongue. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled as the sharp bitter flavors pummels my taste buds into submission. Overall, what a nice bittersweet AIPA that I would have again.

Bottle shared at RBSG hotel. Pours clear orange with white head. Nose/taste of candy, resin, lemon, unfermented barley and grain. Lighter medium body.

kbudd19 (515) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle share from James. Golden amber pour, little bit of white head, very malty aroma, lots of sweetness. Taste, lots of malt sweetness that over powers.

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle - Orange and caramel malts. Hazy gold with a thin white head. Sweet and light pine. Bitterness is well balanced by sweetness. A bit on the sweet side overall.

Belle bouteille old style. 6.66% pour cette Diabolical IPA du Michigan trouvée sur une tablette floridienne. Au versement, la couleur orangée me fait penser au caramel. La tête beige frotte les parois de mon verre. Au nez, caramel fruité par les houblons pour une représentation assez générique. C’est mauvais? Non. C’est ce que je cherche? Non. Au goût, c’est sucré mais c’est aussi citronné et floral. C’est mauvais? Non. C’est ce que je préfère? Non. En bouche, c’est plus ou moins intéressant. Le corps est huileux mais le pétillement modéré à bas semble alourdir l’appareil inutilement. En arrière-goût, c’est comme un vin d’orge américain. Décidément, une bouteille sans date sans doute passée date.

Tasty smooth easy drinking aggressively hopped IPA. Does that all go together? Maybe not, but that’s what came to mind with this one.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a murky orange-golden color with a bumpy, ice cream float, antique white head. A finger and a half head takes the level of a 12 ounce bottle of beer to the very top edge of a pint glass. Mild pine, some grapefruit, more apricot and some cream comprise the bouquet. Heavy mouthfeel. Almost drinks like a DIPA. Sherbet, apricot, and grapefruit flavors. There’s a bit if harsh character to the overall profile.

Tasted on tap at North Peak Brewpub. It poured a clear amber with an off white head and streaky lacing. An almost nonexistent to neutral aroma with a bitter taste.

Had it on tap at North Peak Brewing co. Pours a clear golden hue with a frothy white head. Citrus aroma and taste with a piney bitter aftertaste.
