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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

No gusher w/ this bottle. I can’t find a date on it. First glass pours clear and sparkling orange with half liquid and half rocky head. Aromas of lemon and ginger pour from the glass. Very spritzy on the tongue. Flavors of more citrus, spice and even pineapple. Musky barnyard, if you take a big swig with your nose in the glass. A little dirty metal for the finish. Quite tasty, but not cohesive enough for a top grade.

Beerenberger (1563) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2015
Aroma of citrus and funk. Nice. A beautiful cloudy orange amber pour with a lasting ivory foamy head and minimal lacing. The taste is grapefruit, tropical fruit combined with a tasteful sour funk. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, A very nicely made beer with loads of taste. Loved the combination of citrus and funk.

Bottle poured a lightly hazy orange hue w/ an enormous foamy head and minor sticky lacing. Mild earthy aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are apricot, lemon, barnyard funk, and straw. Full bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750mL corked & caged beer - Bottled 11 JUN 14 Quite a struggle to get this bad boy open. I’m rewarded with a hazy, very bright orange beer, pouring a pillowy white head. Aroma explodes from the bottle, filling the room straight away; cooked citrus, pine sap, orange sherbert, grapefruit, grass, leading onto funky notes of fermenting pineapple, hay & horse sweat, with peppery phenolic undertones. Body rather fuller than expected for strength/Brett infected (was expecting dryness!), lively carbonation, lingers for a good measure on the palate. Plenty of hops on offer here - resiny, leafy, spicy, candied orange, pine sap, theres a nice sweet pale malt note in there leading onto funky Bretty grapefruit rind, pineapple, hay & barnyard. Bitterness is relentless, lingering spicy phenolic finish. Really interesting blend of big US hops & Bretty funk - works well!

DSG (7659) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[3/2/15] Draught at Brouwer’s Cafe in Seattle. Nice deep red-amber color with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, funk and fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, mild funk, hops, some fruitiness and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

Poured as 4 ounce taster at Roanoke’s For the Love of the Brew fest. Nice Brett notes with earthiness and spice making a good presence in what otherwise would be a normal’ish IPA.

Definitely funky. There a wet hay, barn aroma with a sublte sweetness. Tropical fruits and some citrus. Tastes like an IPA with some funk. As it warms up I started to get some more complex aromas and flavors. It started to taste like a saison. Overall an interesting beer.
