Bold, spicy, menacingly delicious HopDevil takes on an entirely new dimension when subjected to a wild yeast fermentation. A sharp, sourish edge has been added by this fermentations that plays into the caramel sweet malt deliciously and creates complex interplay with citrus accented hops.
Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

Deep amber to orange. Nose of pineapple, strawberry, light funk, leather, and citrus rind. Flavor is tropical fruit, dry leather, candy, and bitter pine. Light, dry, fruity finish. Lingering leather and pine.

In the IPA sampler at Town Hall. Quite fruity, apples and cherries, with an interesting yeast. Darkest of the IPAs. Solid malt base, but very fruity hop forward with nice bitterness back. Never would have categorized as a sour/wild by taste. 14.3

maekchu (2247) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
Tap at Stub and Herbís in Minneapolis (listed as a "Belgian IPA"). Strong fruity nose, tropical fruit blossoms, very ripe apples, yeasts, and lots of esters. Deep amber/copper color. Medium thick caramel base, light fruitiness, touch of farmy funk, solid bittering in finish. Thin-medium body. Tasty, but kind of tame in the wild yeast aspect.

Gorgeous deep amber with a generous sudsy head. Arome is kinda funky citrus. Bits of soudough starter. Kind of restrained aroma. Taste is more funky - like a mutated IPA (big surprise :) Lots of spice, and some brett characteristics. Itís a little off putting at first, but it grows on you. Good carbonation with a zesty mouthfeel. Pretty interesting.

750 ml corked with no cage bottle (score! Thanks, Brenn79). Aroma is floral, piney, peppery, dusty brett, lemon rind. Pours hazy burnt orange with a medium beige head with good retention; leaves some cobwebby lace on the glass. Taste is earthy, bitter, citrusy, spicy. Itís a nice blend of two normally disparate styles, the IPA and wild yeast innoculated beer. Itís not sour at all, but the brett imparts that earthy dusty basement flavor that compliments the piney citrusy hops nicely. Palate is perfect for style. Nice experiment.

OmegaX (1276) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Aroma is dirt, brett, grapefruit, grass. Pours a nice golden red hue with a nice fluffy head. Flavors are brett heavy with a solid bitter hop finish. Grapefruit and grassy notes with a distinct brett overtone. Itís pretty nice.

ericdevin (874) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from The Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours a medium orange-amber, little bit of head. Aroma direct, juicy, arch, bugspray. Ech! Body slight, sweet butteriness. Not bad but hard to deal with the aroma. OFF!
