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.

I don't normally enjoy IPA's that much, but this beer was wonderful. Tawny amber in color with a light beige head. Strong hoppy flavor (hence the name HopDevil), and very drinkable. The aftertaste is mellow and pleasant.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 Dark reddish amber with a medium off-white head. Spicy piney hops and caramel in the nose. Flavor has notes of caramel, toffee, grapefruit, citrus, pine and resin. Has more malt character than most American IPAs. Pleasant malt sweetness with lingering hop bitterness. Very nice. Medium smooth body, creamy texture with moderate carbonation. Some lacing left on the glass, good head retention. Really nice beer.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2004
Pours dark amber with a little off white head. Aroma is lovely, hoppy and sweet. The beer itself isn't crazy hopped, but it is still quite bitter. Good maltiness, some spice (clove?), and peppery notes. Finishes sweet.

since ipas are my favorite, you can guess that i loved this one. this one and troeg's hopback are the best! it poured a copper/orange/amber with an off white head. taste was a great spicey/hoppy flavor that was very satisfying. this one tasted better after each drink. it finished dry with a great hop bite. this is definitely one of my favorite beers.

Among my top 5 beers. I'm becoming more and more IPA friendly and Hop Devil started it all. Aroma is hoppy through and through. Appearance is Orange hue with a delightful head. Flavor is hoppy but not over the top hop followed by sweetness to clean the palate for the next sip. Overall one the best IPA's from one of best breweries in the world.

Amber colored with an off-white head that managed to float throughout the drink. Citrus and hops in the nose. Dry on the palate with hop flavors from start to finish, and a nice touch of caramel malt undertones. The finish is a subdued bitterness. Overall a nice drink.

brownaler (532) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Has a sweet, citrusy aroma with a chewy hop flavor from front to back having a nice, bitter finish. A smooth and tasty IPA from Victory.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Cloudy amber pour, nice off white head and lace. Malt aroma, and a pleasent citrus and floral hop accompany that. Very nice balance of malts and all kinds of hops. Floral and citrus hops mostly, but the finish has a nice bitterness to it. Medium bodied and a nice tangy palate. A fine IPA.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2004
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.
