4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a nice head. Aroma is dominated by hops with a fruity character. Hop devil indeed. If you don’t like hoppy beer then stay away from this one. Hops are dominant in the flavor as expected. Not overly bitter but still a face slap of resiny hoppiness. This would ruin your palate for any food except maybe the hottest chili or curry.

One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had. It’s my go-to when I’m out as most places will have it. I call it my "Old Faithful". Great beer overall!

Medium amber color. Spiced apple pie, oranges.
Medium full body with tons of orange pekoe, spiced apples and caramel. Modest hoppy finish. Well executed

15/20 bitterness and hops work really well, nice alcohol kick to it as well

For the love of Hops. Big beer with that IPA hop resin profile I was after. Good length with a solid upfront nose and nice white head when poured. I will be back

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a one finger off-white head. Aroma: fruity malts, hops, pine. Taste: same as the aroma, despite the name it’s the malt that’s most prominent, fruity, some caramel sweetness, hint of liquorice, some bittering hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice but not what I was expecting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Âmbar escuro de leve turbidez, espuma bege de ótima formação e persistência. Aroma de bastante malte e caramelo, lúpulo, pinho em segundo plano. No paladar médio amargor e dulçor. Corpo médio/licoroso, baixa/média carbonatação. Final de média duração focado no pinho e amargor crescente, perde um pouco do caramelo/dulçor com a temperatura.

Not big hops, but grassy/musky + earth fruits (+ frankly the more interesting for it). Brings to mind Poperings Hommelbier (a good thing). There is a slight twist in the fruit – somewhere between blackcurrant + blackberry – sweetness may also be from malts (caramel, or lovely light pastry-esque (or white baguette bread). Quite drinkable.

I first had this standard eleven years ago. It’s no longer my favorite IPA, but it still is a solid selection. Perhaps it’s just nostalgia. The nose imparts a faint hop, earthy scent. The appearance is brown/amber that looks like a Fest beer. The taste is malty and pine resin; not very citrusy. It does provide a spicy bite on the finish after the initial malt flavor. Personally, I love it more on a nitro pour (I had it at Victory and the Standard Tap in Philly). Cheers!

On the palate, similar citrus and pine zest, mild resin, mild pastry dough malt. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced.
