I don’t understand what all the fuss is about...this beer is always a disappointment to me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very good beer, but I think it’s mis-labeled to the point of false advertising. I mean, with a name like "Hop Devil", I expect a beer that’s hoppy enough to kick my teeth in, with just enough malts to m ake it drinkable. Well, this beer isn’t that. The Hop Devil is a very well-balanced IPA: it’s quite hoppy, but with a strong body and assertive malt character to balance it out. To me, this is just a good pale ale that pisses me off every time I pour one.

Pours copper color with off white head. Biscuit malt and pine aroma with floral and earthy hops. Flavor is pine up front with biscuit and dry caramel malt backbone. Herbal hop and bitter pine resin finish. Bitterness lingers.

Rotgold,voller Schaum. Das Aroma ist Beerig, spritzig fruchtig, sehr exotisch und etwas malzig. Der Geschmack ist hefig, malzig mit Nuancen von Banane. Der Abgang sehr bitter aber angenehm.

Tap into a shaker showing moderate filtration and tanned honey. The nose is subtle and light, very difficult to tell much if anything at all. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied, with a light IPA bitterness on the finish. Big malty sweetness throughout, not much else.

beer_rookie (150) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Pours an orange golden color. Has about a two finger thick tan head. Pretty lacing around the glass.

Aroma is spicy citrusy. It’s got some pepper in it. Also some caramel malt.

Taste is quite hoppy and pretty bitter. Has a citrus kick right at the end. It’s a little sweet, but the bitter wins out.

Mouthfeel is bitter. A little oily. Finishes bitter sweet. It’s medium bodied.

Overall, it’s a good IPA. Great even. I would certainly buy again.

ARH (861) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2015
On nitro, poured into a stein. The aroma is, as expected, mellow (being on nitro and all) with hints of caramel and bitter citrus and a dampness in the background. It pours a brilliant rich brown amber with an off white creamy head that has the great, dense retention and dense abundant lace one would expect from a nitro pour. The taste is a mellow, balanced medium bittersweet. The creamy texture has a smooth fuzz to it and it’s medium body it a blend of sweet citrus, toffee, and bread crust that finishes a bit roasty with a spice zip that truns to bittersweet citrus rind and an aftertaste that’s slightly burnt coffee and french baguette.

Vignale (2576) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Flaska från saveur-bier. Bärnstensfärdad med krämigt smutsvitt skum. Fin doft men rer malt än humle i doften. Fudge, caramell, lite gräs och stenfrukt. Mjuk len munkänsla, lite jordig och karmallig typ en amber ale, gräs, persika, aprikos, tallskott. Måttlig beska. En snäll mjuk maltig IPA. Riktigt trevlig.

Peter_L (1135) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Flaska@OT. Mörkt bärnstenfärgad vätska med lågt skum. Söt nästan karamellig i doften. Men även inslag av citrus och ananas. Kraftig beska matchas med stor maltkropp. Även här slår karamellen igenom. Nästan lite åt amerikansk amber ale-hållet.
