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.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Appearance of a brandy, with a thick syrup consistency. Lacking the aroma expected of a hoppy beer. Full-bodied, yet not as harsh or a finish as some of its cousins, yet all of the body is there. Consumed alongside Dogfish Head 60 and 90, and Stone IPA this was the champion.

One of my favorite IPAs. This time on draft at Kellian's in Philadelphia. Aroma a bit off, and head not as creamy as sometimes, but still great looking pint: deep copper color and leaves great lace. Goes down as well as always: a load of hops (columbus?) and a bit maltier than I remembered. Alcohol sneaks up on you after the pint is gone.

rajendra82 (998) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 Poured out a clear amber to orange with a look of sweet tea, The moderate sized head settled down to a thin collar of bubbles that left a good amount of clingy lace. The aroma is fairly mild piney hops with citrus notes. Tasted sweet and crisp with a slick oily mouthfeel. The finish is dry with a more distinct hop aftertaste. Very tasty and drinkable, but not bold enough to justify the name HopDevil . Very nicely balcanced, and would serve as a great introduction to microbrews for someone perpetually sucking on macro swill. If I could get this locally, I'd drink it fairly regularly.

This is a great east coast style IPA. Very balanced with lots of good hoppy flavor. Was unique in that i am moslty used to west coast IPA's. A good brew

deadguy (42) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2004
This is a very worthy imbiber. With a strong sharp hoppy flavour and a mellow honey color that is quite heady this makes quite an impression. This is the quintessential IPA, sharp in hops, mellow in aroma with a lingering malty citrus flavor. Excellent!

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Hazy amber color, nice off-white head. Very full aroma, malt, hops, bread, fruit and nut. Excellent! Flavor is quite hoppy, but not as hoppy as expected! Is has lots of other different flavors: rosted malt, nut, spices and pebber. Hopefully I will find this beer on tap when I travel to the US this summer!! It is absolutely excellent!!

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2004
Clear amber body wearing a thin sticky off-white head. Aroma is bready, toasty not unlike a good pilsner's, but with a huge cascade profile (grapefruit, orange) and traces of earth and honey. Taste is typicla to high alpha-acid hops IPA, very lemony, grapefruity. A tart and bitter mix with no stand out quality. Body is clean, rather thin with a biting carbonation. Overrated from my perspective, not even among my favorite half of the style I believe, but the aroma is good and quite complex. Thanks to The_Beer_God though!

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2004
A lighter look with a good off-white head. There was a strong citrus hoppy flavor. The finish was bitter, hoppy, fizzy, and dry

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2004
Fantastic copper colour with creamy tan head. Releases citric hops-a-plenty even from a few feet away. Nice. First sip is like walking into a pine forest where there happens to be a bread baker eating grapefuit. Very dry finish with a subtle bitterness lingering after the slightly sweet mouthfeel has left. Definitely a well-crafted and eminently drinkable beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2004
12 oz bottle, shaker glass. Pine, citrus (lime/grapefruit), flower hops (M), cookie malt (L). Slightly hazy, deep red-brown body with a tight, creamy, eggshell head that's slowly diminishing. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a heavliy bitter, lightly acidic finish. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: not too much to separate from a host of IPAs except that it's just extrememly well fashioned.
