3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle.
Deep, clear amber color. Frothy tan head.
To be honest, I didn’t pick up much of anything on the aroma..quite odd actually, considering the taste is very hop-driven. Light caramel malts and a touch of hops, that’s it.
The taste is definitely more bold, with an earthy malt presence and a thick blanket of floral hops.
I’ll probably take hell for this, but I think HopDevil is certainly one of the more overrated IPAs out there. I’ve tried it a number of times and I’ve yet to be blown away by it. Worth a shot, absolutely. Near the top of it’s class? Not in my book..

Best IPA in the states both on bottle and draft. A shame it costs so much in Europe

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had it on tap, nitro style! Pours a clear copper hue with a nice head and mondo lacing. Very smooth tasting IPA that has a even smoother kickback. And dare I say it, a smooth aroma to boot.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle. Simply a delightful IPA. Very flavourful but not aggressively or jarringly bitter. The balance is just right. Looks, tastes and smells just like it should.

Clear mahogany with an of white head. Aroma floral with citrus and caramel notes. Taste of his and a little cardboard, not particularly bitter, would say this is a pale ale except that the palate is more bitter (and cardboardy) than a pale ale would be. OK

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber, solid 1/2" beige head, full curtain of lace. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste is full-bodied caramel malt that adds clear citrus hops on the swallow, only to have the malt pull even for a finish that has both lingering nicely. A superb IPA. High recommendations.
