Bountiful hop and malt aroma. Sweet, well balanced, and precisely hopped. The finish could be a touch cleaner, but otherwise one of the best IPAs out there.

Hoppy spicy aroma.Medium strong hop flavor with a bitter bite then fruity flavors come through to the finish.A complex IPA without the hops on steroids character that most North West micros have.

hop devil is a lovely ipa, not too bitter, nice creamy head with hints of fruit and plenty oh hops!

Beautiful looking beer. Orangish-red with a nice long lasting head. My nose puckered up at the scent. This even smells bitter. Should be interesing. Hmm, first couple of sips are hoppy, but not as much as I’d expected. Slight grapefruit taste. A little too much of a one note beer for me.

Great hop presence. The intense spicy hops work well with the malty flavor. This one is so easy to drink, yet so flavorful.

Such good hop action. This is definately one of my very favorites. Spicy strong flavor and nose. The malt flavor is nicely present,making the hops nicely complimented.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Update: I have to take this down a notch after noticing a lot of inconsistency. Old :(11/02) Lovely ruby topped by a generous white head. Tremendous piney hop aroma. Complex sweet fruity malt structure with big hops providing relief. Superbly balanced and a comprehensively drinkable IPA.
