Light and dry and funky, with a nice hoppiness backing it up. Good for drinking at shitty parties with your hoodrat friends.

Amber Copper in color. Crystal clear. Fruity spice nose banana and pumpkin pie spice. More spicy hops flavor followed by a Belgian yeast note. Overall, tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Brouwerij Lane BK NYC. Pours clear copper with little head. Aroma is pretty basic pine and spicy earthy hops with citrus bitters and funk at the edge. Flavor follows. Not really sour. Basically just a mild IPA. Feel is watery and not lively. Not a great beer but not offensive. I would stick with standard.

Really nice blend of styles. The hops provide strong spruce and floral aromas. I was expecting some fruit sweetness in the flavor, but it is dry as a bone. The bitterness adds an extra dimension to the barnyard funk flavor. I don’t get much sourness though, which is a shame because that might have lightened things up a bit and added more complexity.
I would call this a very good beer but not a great beer. It is more of a base than a final product... it screams out for them to add something else; apricot, sour cherry, etc. It just needs that little something extra to get it over the top.

Hazy golden colored body, large white head and soapy lacing. Floral, citric, wet hay, musty brett, lightly doughy. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, moderate acidity, lightly funky finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The essence of the IPA is still there, but really dried out by the Brett. Not too much funk, more along the lines of a Belgian feel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s a bit floral. Better than regular HopDevil, this beer is a solid ale with a touch of wildflowers and a smidge of funk. Slight citrus nose. Has a touch of sweetness. The more I drink this one, the more I like it.

Is this a wild ale? I suppose. Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with a medium sized off white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma picks up a lemon tartness and has plenty of pine and citrus. You definitely smell the hop devil. The taste has a tart lemon and a slight bitterness. The lemon notes hang longer than the bitterness. Hop devil really tamed but this is a fun spin on it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear reddish-amber with slightly off-white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Taste is not mild (not a bad thing). Slight bitterness riding on top of the hops. Not a bad summer beer, with that touch of bitterness complementing the summer IPA thing.
