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.

j12601 (6585) - 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.

crossovert (6339) - Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
750ml corked and caged bottle. Watch out when you open it, the cap goes off by it self like a missile and it gushes everywhere. It pours into my goblet a red-orange hued gold. The head is huge and uncontrollable on the pour and as t recedes it leaves thick lacing. There is a huge brett presence in the smell, it is funky but nto over the top. There is a distinct frutiiness to it. There is a lot of grapefruit. There is a nice interplay between hops and funk. It is nice and bretty/hoppy. It is like biting into a pine cone covered in bugs (brett). There is an ample amount of both fruit and hops on the palate. The mouthfeel is over carbonated, it almost bites the tounge, light beer-like. The mouthfeel doesn’t ruin it, but it does keep it from getting a higher rating. It is an interesting beer for sure.

DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
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.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (basement, horseblanket, barnyard), with notes of pepper, band-aid, clove. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Definitely a phenolic little monkey (TAR might even throw up in his mouth a little bit), but overall pretty solid. Definitely not lacking in Brett aspects, but seems to lack a little something in the base character. Decent flavor balance but again, there’s something missing. Everything’s just kinda muted or something...for what it is, it’s rather ordinary, if that makes any sense. Good effort, though.

5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Deep amber, redish tint, large rocky off-white head, sticky lacing.   Cross between a hoppy and Belgian like nose.   Tastes like a Pale Ale crossed with a Belgian.   Decent hop bite, a little bready, fiery.   American Pale Ale with a distinct Belgian flair.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Decent balance between Belgian and American Pale Ale.   Not a big fan of the style, but this one does a decent balancing job.

marcus (6011) - 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.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2009
bottle, cloudy brownish red, decent lasting off white foam, aroma is mostly acerbic , aspirin like, flavor has some hop notes and more sour and funk, finish is coppery, citric and a little thick for me

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2009
Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow and tupalev. Hazy amber pour with an average creamy beige head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with orange zest, a bit of cream, strongly Orval-like funky dry yeast. Taste - wow! - Orval and black pepper plus lemon zest - funky, dry and spicy. Solid body, quite a lively mouthfeel, with a long, funky, lightly acidic bitter/spicy finish. Lovely stuff.
