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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

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. Didn’t get any sourness, might have been too cold of a pour. Will try again tomorrow.

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.

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

750ml bottle courtesy of GMCC2181 – thanks G! Pours slightly hazy amber with a 2 finger foamy off-white head. The nose is malt, citrus hops and light funk. The taste is caramel, ripe citrus and more funk in the finish. Medium bodied. Good stuff – very unique. Thanks G-Diddy!

zach8270 (3798) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2009
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Cloudy dark copper color with a mountain of off-white foam. Aroma is sweet and tangy with strong hints of citrus, pine, sour notes, yeast, and spices. Flavor is very sour and spicy at the beginning with some smooth malts in the middle. Finishes very bitter and sharp with a lot of tart and sour notes. Bitterness lasts a while. A little too cloying.

lamas (1433) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2009
750mL bottle. Bottled on: 03/27/09. Pours a murky amber with a MASSIVE khaki head. Grapefruits, pine, caramel, and the Brett smell of my little brother’s athlete’s foot-infested tube socks. Medium to full-bodied and on the syrupy side. Caramel starts things off taste-wise with a transition to some lemony hoppiness. Finishes with a good bit of drying grapefruit and a little spiciness. Underlying sour, funky Brett qualities throughout.

Out of the caged cork bottle. Big fluffy beige head over a dark copper beer in my snifter. Noticable wet hay, green hops, and urine in the nose. I bought this to continue my experiment in liking the all Brett beers. I hate to say it but after all this time I am aquiring a taste for the Brett. I still don’t like sour beers, but this is tastey. Strong Brett flavors, but nothing offensive. Some caramel sweetness, some cardboard, some old orange rinds, and the finish shows the hops with a long, bitter resin flavor. Very easy to drink.
