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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.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. Pours a hazy light orange with very thick white head. Aroma has an interesting combination of hops (pine and orange citrus) and sour notes (grapefruit). Flavor is more hoppy with mainly pine notes but a bit of citrus as well. The sour is a lot less present on the tongue.

Bottle. Hazy copper orange with a lively, bubbly golden head. Spicy, zesty aroma. Palate is quite malty, with apricot fruit and heaps of spice. Moderately bitter finish. Nice.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. 4/22/09 bottling date. Pours with a large, foamy, beige head over a pretty hazed orange-amber body. Very attractive. Good retention Aroma is orange, earth, quite phenolic with brett, hunk, pepper and horse-hide. Taste is lightly tart with orange and lemon peel, citrus hop bitterness, caramel, and light barnyard. Lively carbonation with a dry mouthfeel. Truly a great summer beer that I will probably buy again. Like a cheap version of Allagash Confluence.

j12601 (7859) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle that I brought to PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a hazy brown amber with a medium to thick beige head. Light brett funk. Medium bodied. Dry crisp bitterness.

marcus (7545) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Bottled 6/-11/09. Poured caramel/orange with a massive beige head and a floral yeasty aroma. I had to wait a few minutes for the head to subside before I could reach the liquid, probably a result of the wild yeast action. There is a spiced caramel malt flavor, and it is actually more bitter than sour. Did not meet my expectations.

KyotoLefty (7540) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2010
750 ml bottle. Pretty brown-orange color with an enormous head. Funky, dusty aroma with minerals, slight fruit, quite lambic like. Some caramel in the flavor, light fruit, big bitterness and a dirty dryness. Strongly sour as well. Very funky, with a slight citrus hop taste too. Interesting, though a bit harsh. Huge carbonation. Very nice.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2009
Draught (keg) at the White Horse American Beer Festival, July 2009. Ginger colour. Weirdly sweet and sour. The sour funk mingles with candy floss. Lots going n here but much of it is quite difficult to describe. Unusual, interesting and strangely appealing

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2009
750mL bottle. Poured medium reddish-orange with a thick, sticky, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up a lovely array of earth and funky accents over caramel malts and some honeyed biscuits.. peppery notes, redder fruits, and a touch of perfume accented.. excellent presentation. The flavor had more of the fruit at the core, with a bit of sourdough in there too.. dirty, funky yeast, white pepper, and lemony notes around.. this really dried out on the finish with lots of residual bitterness and funk. Medium-bodied with thick, filling carbonation on the palate.. the Brett really dug in its heels.. just a bit too bitter, which threw off the balance some. All in all very enjoyable and I could drink a lot of it.
