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.

Nice citrusy aroma. The flavor didn't seem hoppy enough for something called Hop Devil. Very tasty but I don't think it lives up to the hype.

My first real beer-- since I was so used to swill like Bud-- I found this overwhelming. But then I caught on. Appearnce is amazing--dark amber color, head is decent and foam sticks to the glass--aroma is of malt, and hops, hops and hops!!! Taste is very spicy and hoppy, pretty strong and body is medium to full But I think this is better on tap because the bottles don't seem to do this justice.

A thirst quencher- perfect malt/hop balance; if you like pilsner beers and want something with more complexity and kick, you can't go wrong with this.

A beer that needs no introduction!! This has been my go to beer for about a year and a half now. Still my number one. Reddish orange color. Aroma is citrusy. Flavor is hoppy with some pine and tangerine flavor. Big favorite of mine!!

Paid $7.99 for a 6-pack. Nice burnt-orange color, with a decent head. Most of the IPAs I've had recently have had an extreme head, so this one is small in comparrison. Hoppiness in the nose, with a light citrus (grapefruit). Very nice smell, but not strong... I must admit, I love IPAs that smell up the room the moment I open the bottle. This one doesn't, but still has a nice aroma. Not quite as hoppy as I had imagined. I've heard for so long that I needed to try this since I loved IPAs/hops, and I must say, I'm a bit disappointed. I thought it was going to be insanely hoppy. Instead, it's nice hoppy. Anyway, it's still a good brew: slightly malty, pretty hoppy, hints of citrus, hints of pine, hints of pepper.

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.
