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.

On tap at RFD in DC. Copper hue with a large frothy head, good lacing, light to medium-bodied. Heavy hoppy aroma of flowers, pine, and grapefruit. Additionally initial heavy bitter flavor with a citrusy bite. Dry and lively mouthfeel with a metallic feel. A hop head beer, I found it a bit too one-diminsional.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2003 Nice golden color and decent head. A very balanced IPA with a delicate play between sweet and bitter. I wish the palate was a little more alive but other than that this is a first class IPA. Recommended! The only other downer is with a name like "Hop Devil" I thought it would have more of a hop hit to it.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2004 Bottle: What a fantastic brew! The beer is a amber (maybe orangish) color, with a quick-dissapating head. The aroma is fantastic. The hops are strong. Fairly good whiff of grapefruit/citrus to it. The taste is equally good. The hops are VERY strong, but there is an exquisite balance to them. They aren't strong for the sake of being strong. Decent amount of body to the beer. I had this with a friend the other night, and his initial reaction was "WOW". Had this on Draught at Victory. It was a CASK version. I won't change my rating due to the availability of this, but if you are in the area, check and see if they have some of this. It was superb. Even more refined than the original.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 One of my favorite IPAs. Hoppy taste with some hints of citrus/fruit. Poured with a decent sized head that left a good lacing.

One of my newest favorites. Great fruity and bitter taste and not too sweet. Highly recommended.

Really good combiantion of malt & hops, with the hops being the dominant factor. It poured from the bottle with a really nice head that left good lacing. This is a really well done IPA. Live it, Love it, Drink it!

Great IPA probably one of the best. Great amber color and light head. The flavor represents what an IPA should be. Perfect blend of hops and malts. I'm trying very hard to think of a better IPA... and I Can't!

Hopdevil is by far the best IPA on the market. Victory's staple beer, very marketable, it's palate, flavor and overall impression is something to treasure.

Kinz (3459) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2004 A bit too dark for a true IPA, but nonetheless a pretty ruby color can be found amongst the amber. Nice, diminishing off white head. Aroma was surprisingly malty considering all the hop-hoopla surrounding this beer. The hop aromas are somewhat earthy and piney, with some grapefruit on the end. Palate is nice. The flavor is initially rather sweet, quickly wrapped up by a fruity hop finish. Slowly becomes more bitter, with some juicy-fruit gum flavor as well. Good, but I sincerely believe this is a tad overrated. NOTE: Have had the cask version of this a couple of times as well, flavor profile is essentially the same, but the palate is a 5, and the overall a 17, knocking it up to a 4.0. Very smooth and tasty.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2003 Beautiful amber hue; this IPA is all about hops - suprise! Great balanced taste; this is at the very top of my list of IPA's; now that I'm in PA I plan on sampling all of Victory's wares. To use another beer's tag line in an appropriate place "it just doesn't get any better than this".
