4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First off, this bottle says best by March 18th 2013, so it’s about a week past its prime. Pretty clear beer with some small particles floating around. Two fingers worth of head that stays at about one through the glass. Very nice lacing. The aroma is of spice and malt with hops there, but definitely in the background and more subtle (I presume because of the age of this beer). The taste is... interesting. Truth be told, it tastes like V8 juice to me as far as the "spice" is concerned, but without any vegetable notes (thank God). Sweet through the front of each sip, with a slightly bitter, spicy finish. Really, I get a LOT of peppery notes in HopDevil, and I don’t mind. The mouthfeel is smooth, and a slight coating is left in the mouth on each sip. HopDevil’s a very good beer, and this one’s not even fresh. I would try this again out of a fresher bottle.

12 fl oz bottle into schooner glass. Fruity chalky nose. Bronze coloured beer with lasting off-white head. Lightly carbonated. Ohh....this is full of caramel notes mixed in with the hops. Really easy drinking, really well balanced. Great finish. Hides the alcohol well, great beer.

12oz bottle pours a hazy burnt amber with small off white head, reduces to cap. Nose of sweet mango and pineapple and some bitter citrus. Taste is quite malty and caramely with some orange. Really good mouth feel, nice body to it and quite high carbonation that fades quite substantially. Good drying finish, bitterness not excessive. Really enjoyable balance.
