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.

This one had quite a rep, and it lived up to it, it had alot of balls. Rock solid taste, with a delightfully understated aftertaste. If your gonna use the devil in the name, ya gotta bring it, and it does just that.

I have been saving this one for a while and I am glad to say that I was not dissapointed. Creamy head that didn’t last all that long. Amber in colour. Dry and bitter with an aftertaste that lingers in the back of your mouth. Fantastic.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 Best before Jan 17, 07. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Nice appearance and mouthfeel, but...it just doesn’t have a very interesting or enticing aroma and what’s there is somewhat tainted by the vitamin B yeast smell (similar to Prima Pils, but not as bad here). Fairly good balance for the style, but as with a lot of American examples, it’s too citric for my tastes.

One of the best IPA’s I have ever tasted. The hops explode in both the nose and the palate. This is a big, full flavored beer with a ton of body to back up the hops.

Tons of character. Malt alone is pretty deep and well pronounced, caramelly/ toffeeish. But there’s a strong overlaying hop palate that could cause many a heart failure without the malt strength. Outstanding complexity.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2002
A great ruby red color with all the nose of the great IPAs. Citrus rind dominated the aroma. Very close to Alpha King or Hop Ottin but a bit behind.

Slight maltiness in the aroma. Malt and huge bitterness are very well balanced. A true hophead’s beer.

Mega-hoppy, yes, but balanced by substantial malt presence. Upon retaste, I think the hops are a tad overpowering.
