Hoppy and serious. I had this cask in Exton PA and it was full of hop notes and a heavy enough body to keep it all together. Malt still managed to make an appearence at the end.

You can smell the hops coming at you as you tilt the glass! This is a great beer if youíre a hop-head! Red copper colored beer with an off-white head. The citrus finish really makes me want to pour another.

If you love hops..... This Devils for you! I prefer a little more balance (like in APAís) but as far as this style, this is one of the best. Starts out blazing in the IBU department and finishes even stronger. I can get this and will trade for Stone APA!

On tap. Not bad, but a little too much of the Cascade hops. Has a serious grapefruit finish.

Very tasty. Not overpoweringly bitter like some IPAís, but full of hop flavor. A balanced blend of spice and fruit. A bit light-bodied I think.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 A personal favorite of mine...wish I could still get it in California! Alcohol is well hidden and the unique hop bitterness is complimented by spicy, fruit flavors. Sweet malt balances against the hops more than most IPAs, also a darker brown color.

A unique flavor & finish....very hoppy and most satisfying. Never heard of it, saw it tucked away @ distír who said it was great, but he underrated it. What a brew....fruity, hoppy, wierd....but delicious.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 Amber coloured beer with a thick beige head and sticky lace. Bright pine/spicy aroma. Flavour is quite similar. A bit of sweetness up front with a spicy finish. Some orange and butterscotch. When itís fresh, the hops are nice and piny with a touch of orange and spice... they can quickly fade to nothing though, so make sure you drink this one fresh.
