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.

Great beer & great label! Bold-tasting, hopsy (duh), grainy beer. Thin head; cloudy bronze in color. Strong floral aroma. Not overly hopsy; well-balanced. An ass-kicker for sure! (I also recently found out that Hops are related to the cannibas family, not sure of the validity of this statement, but pretty much makes sense!)

One of favorite beers. Dark color when poured with a small amount of head. The initial taste is an assault of hops followed by a mellowing malt after tase. The taste is some what bitter but that is to be expected. A very good IPA.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2004 A slightly hazyy amber/bronze with a diminishing medium white head. Strong floral aroma of grapefruit, pine, and hops. Medium palate with moderate carbonation. Huge grapefruit and pine hop flavor with hints of malt every now and then. A nice bitter finish. An excellent IPA.

Pours red in color with a head that lasts with good lacing. Aroma of earthy and floral hops. Taste is mostly malty with good hop background. Great IPA.

djmcfar (64) - Ixonia, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2003
(bottle) strong floral hoppy aroma - dark orange color - small white head - bitter hoppy flavor, with some maltiness - not quite as hoppy/bitter as the name implies, but very good

[Cask conditioned] Brown coloured. Loads of cascade hops in the aroma. Nice fruity, bitter and dry flavour.

I live in Pennsylvania and have seen this beer many times on the shelf at the distributor. It is brewed locally but I never had an urge to purchase it until seeing the reviews here. This is the best IPA I have ever tasted. Held to light it is a crystal clear deep RED just like the color of the label around the HopDevil. This beer is very smooth with a nice kick to finish. Most other IPA's that I have had always seem to be orange in color and cloudly such as STONE IPA and DogFish. I got my first sample of this in a variety pack along with Golden Monkey, V.Lager and Prima Pils but will be buying another case of HopDevil to share with my friends very soon.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2004 nice bronze color with a thick off-white head. Not much in the way of lacing. Hops and citrus on the nose. Lots of hops on the tongue. Pine and citrus bursting from this beer. Long lingering dry finish. This is an awesome beer!
