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.

very nice aroma, not really sure how to describe it but it's strong. the aroma, however, doesnt make up for the fact that this beer has very little bite to it. i was disappointed with the weak flavor.

At first I thought I had a bad batch, but after reading a few of the ratings I see the name hop devil doesn't reflect the flavor. It did, however, have quite a nice aroma which was filled with floral and bitter hints. Flavor, even though not hoppy, was not that good. Reminded me of an altbier or an amber or something.

Hop bunny rabbit is more like it. Despite the misleading name, this is quite a good well balanced IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2005 In the bottle at the Huber Haus IPA tasting. reddish copper in color. A dark white head. Malty hoppy aroma. Not nearly as hoppy in flavor as the name would imply. In fact, seems to be a solid standard IPA. Very good, but not outstanding. I suspect this is slightly over-rated.

Always have been impressed with this one. Figured I had better rate it before hop whallop....Perfect looking red-orange beer with a nice off-white head. Nice Spicy American hop aroma, with a perfect blend of carmel malt there as well. They have this down perfectly. Big flavor of hops and carmel malt, with a nice full body. Easy to drink and very well made.

NOw this is a good IPA. Very smooth, yet bold, and a nicely sweet, possibly carmel finish that defines the brew.

Deep amber in color, and the light khaki head leaves mazes of lace in the glass. The nose is an initial assault of pungent, grassy hops, followed by sweet maple-y malt, cantaloupe(!), and another, subtler layer of hops, this one resiny and piney. Flavors: spicy hop with a floral quality, sweetish, fruity (habanero minus the heat, grapefruit). The finish is spicy, slightly overbitter/astringent, and seems to stick to the roof of your mouth. There's also an afterthought of minty-peachy coolness on the tongue. Medium-bodied and silky. I hate to say it, but I think the hops are masking what could be an outstanding beer.

tasty but nothing memorable. expensive. with a name like 'hop devil' you'd think it's the most wickedly hoppy beer ever. but it's not! smells great-- amber in color (one of the darker ipa's i've had). sweet, irony, then dry... not much character, but very pleasant.

This beer satisfied my beer thirst. I love how light and crisp it tasted. Also, who can deny a great hoppy smell.. woo hoo!

Tried this beer based on much advice from local hop-heads. Pour is surprisingly clear, the color of Knobb Creek, and with an average head. The hop bouquet as the head slowly dissipated was wonderful, but as the head diminished, so did the excitement of the aroma. As I've so often found, flavor can't always keep up with the billing when the first sip follows such a special opening. The flavor is certainly very hoppy and quite bitter, both pleasantly so, but nothing over the top special, just kind of like sucking on a few hop buds. Probably one of the better IPAs I've had, but hopefully not the best I'll ever have.
