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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

Bottle shared by Sparky27...THANKS ERIC!!! Murky glowing orange pour with a ivory head that defiantly stayed until the final sip. Significant lacing spotted the inside of the glass. Aroma is quite yeasty, with lemon peel, brett, and caramel malt. Flavor has a bit of barnyard, which adds to the complexity here but there is definitely an IPA at the heart of this one. Medium mouthfeel. Good beer!!!

I just love this beer, it mixes the fresh hopiness of the Ipa with the subtle complexities of Bret, mixes well and I find myself creving this beer more and more. the aroma is subtle bret with a sweet hop front, appearance is dark golden with full fluffy head, flavor is spot on in its sublte complexities, refreshing finish, very inviting. Palate sits well on the mouth and overall it is just an extremely good beer.

750 ml. bottle from CelticBrew. Nearly clear orange/amber with a medium bubbly head that settles to a thin layer that lasts and lasts for a nice looking glass. Unmistakable Brett aroma of leather and earth, floral hints, pine, spice, and an undercurrent of caramel and toffee. Bright effervescence accentuates the light to medium body and clean palate. A quick hit of caramel sweetness is no match for the assertive spicy bitterness that is complemented by a tart, but not sour flavor. Very clean palate, substantial Brett character, and some nice hop flavors all combine well in a very refreshing offering. More in line with true Belgians than with some of the milder versions seen here in the states.

Poured a cloudy orange color with small head but good lacing. Aroma was tons of citrus hots and some floral, caralmen as well lots of yeast. Flavor was good as eagle said when we drank it way better then the normal hop devil. Flavor was like the aroma

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2009
on tap at collins. pours a clearish reddish orange with a thin head and minor lacing. bitter pine hop aroma with a nice balanced palate. Seemed to lack any secondary flavors though. Didnít get any sourness, might have been too cold of a pour. Will try again tomorrow.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 Deep orange, big foamy head slow to settle. Smell is Brett with the hops way back there. Taste is that great barnyardy funk, with a kick from the hops on the end and a nice dry "Orval-y" finish. Oveerall - like an american IPA brewer visited Orval abbey. I like it more with each sip. Definitely a new staple. Re-Rate now that the Brett has had some time to work - itís still got that forefront bretty funk, but the hop character is lighter (obviously). The tartness and dryness hasnít really increased, just that the bitterness has been replaced by more sweetness and a slight vegetal flavor. Fresh - this was great, aged, itís a little strange.
