COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious, this American-hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2004 I personally love Hop Devil !!! I feel that flavor on the palate is remarkably different from any beer I have ever tasted. Thereís a certain degree of bitterness to this pale ale, but this bitter sense is an extremely enjoyable one. I really enoy pale ales, and this is my favorite by far. Phenomenal ... but I re-rated this one: After trying several over IPAs and doubles, this one is still on the top of the list, but this type of assessment was excessive. Still excellent ... but there are better ones out there.

The name inspires an over the top hop beer but delivers a solid if somewhat subdued IPA. Thick and malty, similar to Indica IPA but not as good. A well balanced effort.

Poured orange with a slight rocky head. Huge citrus and evergreen aroma. Flavor was really well balanced with the perfect amount of malt to compliment the hop without becoming cloying. Gret palate for the style with enough heft to keep the flavor, but not so much as to be sticky.

MarkBarnes (407) - Waterville, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2007 Sept. 12, 2004: Tried this on tap, and went through a six-pack at a later date. Itís hoppy alright, but a bit too heavy, sweet and "oily" for my unrefined palate. Not my favorite IPA, despite its great "rep." Re-rate on Sept. 24, 2006: Bumping up the scores a bit here. This is darker and maltier than the likes of citrusy & dry IPAs like Smuttynose, Southern Tier and Stone; however, this is a delicious brew Iíd be happy to have anytime.

This is the hoppiest beer I have yet to try,and itís good if hops are your thing. There is also a fair amount of malts,but not quite enough to give it the right balance.Hos do dominate the taste. Very citrisy,and lots of bite.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 Pours a beautiful deep amber with a medium cream off white head. Some sweetness in the aroma but all fruity hops. Some peach and pineapple aroma. Flavor gives you a second of sweetness then fills your mouth with hoppy bitterness and a long clean finish. Smooth light to medium mouthfeel. Cask version at DBA. Body seemed thicker with little to no carbonation. Flavor was very similar but aroma was muted and a little more earthy.

The old standby. Dark copper, frothy lasting tan head. Great lacing. Nose is full of florals, citric fruits, and caramel sweetness. Very well balanced, but the hops seem to always want to win this battle. Medium to full bodied, creamy, soft carbonation, sweet hopped up finish. Always a winner in my book....
