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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

[Tap] Hazy amber colored pour with a small and dense white head. Aromas are very similar to juicy fruit gum. Sweet malts, citrus, floral notes and yeast in the aroma. Flavors of sweet fruits, dough, perfume, Brett, light funk and a floral bitterness. Lightly acidic. Crisp flavors blend well together. Tart lemon-lime notes in the finish. Good stuff.

Bomber into tulip glass, cloudy golden-amber color with light tan head. Aroma of musty farmhouse yeast (hay, funk), citrus, caramel, some nuttiness and light spices. Taste adds notes of lightly sour fruits (apples, berries), leather, sour dough, somewhat tart and some pine hop bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate-high carbonation, crisp with funky pine bitter finish. Could spend some time tasting this making tasting notes, complex and nicely drinkable Brett IPA.

GreatDane1632 (1116) - Alabama, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Received in a trade. June 2014 bottle date. 750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a sleek pint glass -- First thing of note when poured is the distinct Brett character on the nose, second note is the extremely thick and lasting head, on a careless pour it was 2/3 of my glass. Beautiful translucent golden straw color. Flavor represents the description on the bottle well. The hoppy portion of the IPA is still present although subdued, not sure if due to age or the Brett. The Brett is well balanced in this beer and pleasant. Enjoyable experience one goes upon when drinking.

1/6/15. Bomber. Pours cloudy light copper with a huge fluffy sticky head. Nice mild nutty nose. Wonderful rounder mouth with spicy notes balanced with a broad but pronounced hop profile. Hints of sour and funk that only adds to its complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Large corked bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a huge fluffy head. Big citrus hop flavors along with a funky sourness. A filling beer with that you can almost chew on. I like this.

Nice, wild and slightly funky. I like this... very grassy and refreshing tasting.

Pours a golden brown colour with white head and a little lacing. Aroma of Belgium yeast and some floral notes. It is a wild/Belgium with a citrus hop kick. Not bad.

AirForceHops (4678) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 20, 2014
750 ml bottle purchased at Julio’s about 3 months ago, maybe should have gotten to it sooner. Copper color pour with lasting head. Aroma is mango, tangerine, mild Bretty yeast and soft malt.

Flavor is all about the yeast with some fruity hints and light shoe leather notes. Has a sweet aftertaste with the Bretty shoe leather lingering after the sip. Medium in body with a dry texture across the tongue. The yeast comes across really well, For me it’s only so-so.

Westmeister (2095) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Amber with giant white head. Smell is sweet fruity, caramel, hoppy, mild. Taste is an extension of the smell but big fruity and some funk. Just a tinge sour. Wonder if age would open this one up.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with fine bubbles, a annoyingly large creamy light beige head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of yeast, alcohol, basement funk, maybe a bit of smoke and pine tar. Flavors of sour cherries, fermented dough, caramel, yeast, lightly bitter and sour, average carbonation, light to medium body, and a brief sour finish. Interesting brew.
