OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 20, 2013
A - Pours a ruby amber with a thin head that dissapates quickly to form a razor thin collar. S - Concentrated grapefruit rind dominates. Sweet caramel malt. Slight booze. T - Astringent citrus hops attack the mouth with stinging barage of bitterness. The hops turn to a spice and salty character that doesnít back down. Throughout all this hop extravaganza, a pleasant fruitiness comes out and adds dimension. Malt fights itís way through the bounty of hops to the make this drinkable. M - Creamy with moderate carbonation. If hops is what you seek, you will find it in Hopdevil. I would recommend you try as many IPAís as possible before trying this one. Because after you drink this youíll compare the hop content of every IPA, as most everything else youíll think is "light on the hops". Serving type: bottle 10-17-2010

1pintatatime (101) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2015
Pours almost amber with a thick tan head. Aroma is more bread and cereal than hops. Surprisingly complex. Starts bitter and stays bitter with serious grapefruit and dank hops, but then a soft, almost tropical fruit finish that comes in after the dankness. Itís a tad too bitter overall for me, but impressive nonetheless.

Vestlake (192) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle pour. Pours a dark orange, half a finger head. Not much aroma to speak of. Floral hop taste balanced by plenty of malt. Pretty good.

Good and hoppy. Nice aroma. Would probably rate higher if I hadnít had so many ipas lately.

FrenchieK (20) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark orange with an average size foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops with a touch of malt to balance it out. Taste is flavourful-- citrus hops galore but still nicely balanced with malt. Medium bodied. Easy to drink.

floydian1 (1120) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 21, 2015
355ml bottle from DMs with BB 3/11/15. Clear dark orange with an ample white head. Hoppy aromas with stonefruit (apricot), pine resin and citrus to the fore on top of a caramel biscuity malt bill. Taste is balanced bittersweetness with a substantially resinous dry hop finish that lingers. Palate is medium-fullish bodied and spritely. A great American-style IPA.

Obfuscate (230) - Minneapolis, - APR 19, 2015
Amber in color with a fluffy off white head. Grapefruit, caramel, citrus, bread. Not bad but not as good as I expected.

The Etruscan (567) - Tuscany, ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Off white light beige thick head. Dark amber-copper colour. Aroma is moderately hoppy with light fruity (citrus and peach) with light biscuit and caramel notes. Flavor is moderately hoppy with light fruity (apricot) tones, ending in a bitter finish. Medium bodied.

TH28 (205) - - APR 18, 2015
12oz bottle. Code date of 8/9/15. Appearance: Deep amber and clear with a light khaki head. Aroma: relatively faint hop aroma for an American IPA. Some floral and herbal notes, but itís minimal. Caramel malt also noticeable. Taste: Rich caramel and toasty malt flavors dominate, with a sharp hop bitterness that has some herbal and resinous notes. Mouthfeel: Medium body with some viscosity and low carbonation. Finish: Some lingering herbal bitterness and caramel malt. Overall: Definitely an east coast as opposed to west coast IPA. More malt balanced than a west coast IPA. Drinks like a slightly hoppier American Amber

marcogrind (81) - Milano, ITALY - APR 18, 2015
Amber, big foam. Filtered. Grassy resinous fruoty hops in the nose. Medium body. Taste is a bit flat, not incredible!
