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.

Copper/amber, lasting white head with really fine bubbles. When cold, it has very floral aromas with grapefruit notes. As it warms up, I picked a more resinous and bready aroma with some caramel and clover leaf honey. This beer is an epic battle between malts trying to counter the Hopdevil’s grassy bitterness. The malts keep getting beat but they keep coming back for more to make sure we get those sweet caramel hints throughout the beer.

Wonderfully balanced IPA, I didn’t get the hop rush I expected. But, this is one very good beer, with a litle more bittering...

A great IPA. I pleasant reminder of an IPA after drinking a bunch of 100+ IBU Resin Juice. This beer is drinkable. I look forward to trying it on tap.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 a great looking, smelling and tasting beer. Stron IPA character but well balanced. Excellent from the cask! 3/21/07 : Had this on cask again last night, at the brewpup. Superb, best beer I’ve had in a while.

well balanced, the hops don’t blow you away like what I’m used to with IPA’s, and a nice frothy long lasting head

Hop Devil certainly has more Hops than the typical beer swill... Sure could be hopier.. I typically get one of these while visiting one of my local haunts (MadMex)... A solid beer. Pours clean and colorfully.. Hits you pretty good considering the ABV rating being nothing too high... Recommend it with some food otherwise it tends to throw me a funked up taste after a while...

The beer that Sam Adams IPA wishes it was.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 Proud hop flowers stand atop the caramel malt…A leafy, herbal bitterness is soon accompanied by fruity undertones…As clean as Stone’s in both the hop and malt profile, yet earthier throughout...I’m a hop masochist though so everything is quite fine thank you…

Dark amber color. Thin head that quickly disappears.Another nicely balanced IPA. Big hops backed by nice malt finish. A little hop bite at the end. Victory is definately one of the top brewerys period.
