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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

750ml bottle. Pours a medium amber color with a ruby hue. Head was about 2 fingers thick, off white and quite sticky. Nose was really funky and dirty. Lots of Brett mixed with herbal hop notes kind of turned into the smell of a hamper. Flavor was also quite funky with some Brett and hop bitterness. Iíve never seen Brett infused with an IPA before, very interesting.

Hank1980 (945) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle shared at tasting. Pours cloudy orange. Aroma of brett funk, hops, spice. Taste is really nice, and does not resemble the normal hop devil. Spice and brett are the main flavors, with plenty of hop and some malt complementing. Mouth is well carbonated and lively. Overall, a good change of the hop devil.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
Bottle at the í09 Fish Fry. Pours hazy orange with khaki head. The aroma is brett, cookies, light hoppiness, and spicy perfume. The flavor is brett, graham crackers, mild fruitiness, and light swiss cheese. I was skeptical about this, but it turned out alright.

Nephilium (1414) - Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2009
Slightly muted hop aroma, a hint of tartness lurks in the aroma, as well as a bit of mustiness. This bottle almost launched the cork out with a gentle twist, very highly carbonated, it pours a clear reddish-amber, with a huge white head. Hops are still the predominant flavor here, but there is the gentle touch of saison funk in the background. Quite tasty, this could be an excellent beer to start people on the path to sours and funk.

malrubius (1860) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 26, 2009
750 in Duvel glass. Dark hazy orange with dense, rocky head and lace. Funky sweaty dog hair and ripe fruit and sourdough bread aroma. Spicy fruity dry funky flavor with a little caramel like the old Sugar Daddy candy woody spicy funky finish. Medium body. Great mouthfeel. Works for me.

Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
This poured a copper color with a beige head. The aroma contains caramel, oranges, and grapefruit. And ASS. Seriously it smells like an ass. Others at the tasting agreed. The flavor is funky with some vinegar, yeasty flavors, citrus and caramel. It sure tasted better than it smelled. Overall strange but pretty good.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 Cloudy orange, nice big head. Wonderful aroma - bretty, caramel, with some hoppy notes in the background. Very flavorful as well - hoppy at first, then a mish mash of wood, pine and barnyard funk. Nice mix of funk and hoppy bitterness. Pretty good stuff.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
On-tap at Mr. Goodbar. Grapefruit dark brown with soapy white head. Very drinable, orange, hoppy, very above average mouthfeel.

forsides (118) - New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2009
had this first at the brewery about 10 months ago. found it on the shelf 2 weeks ago. good stuff, especially if u love hop devil. the wild yeast is not overwhelming at all.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2009
750ml from Samís, Durham. I wasnít expecting to heart this beer, but heart it I do. Iíve always enjoyed Hop Devil but was very skeptical about what the yeast would do. Somehow - in ways that I canít quantify or articulate - the brett marvelously complements the mild fruitiness of the base beer and also the bitterness of the hop finish. Nice full mouthfeel, lengthy spice in the finish, pleasantly funky nose. A real winner, not unlike LAís Deviation with Brett in a weird, more hoppy way.
