COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

A decent ale but really over priced. Similar to a tripel. Wouldn't get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange clear pour from a bomber. Tons of head. Spicy and tasty. This was under IIPA but definatly more tripel. Decent.

tricyclist (671) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2012
2008 bottle. Tulip pour of hazed amber yellow with two full finger head. Nose is malty, barely sour, quite spicy... Flavor is bleak, not sour... More like a lightly sour hefeweizen... Not pleasant. Bananas, clove, coriander... Not for me at all, not after I heard how sour it was

tcane7 (1657) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle with Chris and Jay. Pours a cloudy amber with thick off-white head. Bottle was a couple years old so most of the hop aroma has faded but the funk has stepped up. Good barnyard funk. Time did this beer well. Really solid.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours a nice orange with a frothy off white head. Lots of sour citrus notes in the nose with notes of sour oranges, grapes, and grapefruit. The taste is light malt, restrained sourness, and some subtle hops. Wish it were more something....sour, hops, malt. Balanced too well for what it is. It’s pretty decent though.

Pepper aroma and brown pour leads to almost sour taste and basic mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy deep amber with an off-white head. The aroma holds barnyard, dry wood, damp basement, bread, light resinous/grassy/citric hops, light honey, light caramel, dry toast, crackers, mould cheese and phenols (band aid and cloves). Hints of brown sugar and wet stone/minerals. The flavour light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and light acidic with notes of mouldy/spicy/mild barnyard brett, tropical fruits, phenols, bready malt and mild citric/woodsy/resinous hops. The mouthfeel is tart, round and soft with a medium to full carbonation. Mouldy basement, wood, tart fruits, touch of malt and balanced hops on the finish. Light oxidized. Medium bodied.

_angst_ (2609) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2012
Bomber courtesy of Marsiblursi. Pours very hazy dark orange with a huge frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and fruity with plums, pineapple, peaches, wood,  dark grapes, dry soil, orange peal, cloves, crackers, grass, lemon peal, grapefruit juice, caramel, brett and hints of lemon balm, Thai basil and passion fruit. Taste is sweet, bitter and tiny sour with pineapple, passion fruit, mango, orange peal, lemon peal, pine, fresh grass, lemon grass, wet soil, caramel, tropical fruit popsicle, brett, lemon hard candy, hay, white pepper, black pepper, cloves, dry soil and hints of barnyard. Mouthfeel is crisp, tiny dry, tiny tart and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny sour with cloves, dry soil, orange peal, peaches, pineapple, passion fruit, hay, brett and cloves. Another excellent farmhouse style ale.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a long lasting bubbly white head. Aroma is very tart, with apple, lemon, orange, a bit of pepper, and what I believe a touch of something darker like plum. Taste isn’t quite as sour as some in this style. This is a letdown after the delicious aroma. Lemon and apple are the main flavors. Mild pepper included. Lots of bubblegum taste here as well. Mouthful is very dry without much of an aftertaste. Carbonation is very fizzy like champagne. Pretty good overall. However, I am a little disappointed since I am a big fan of this style.
