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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Pours a transparent effervescent dark copper with a well-lacing froth of cream-colored head. Has a sweet, doughy caramely malty nose with a touch of grapefruity hops and some light bretty funk. Starts with good malty fullness and light caramel sweetness with an interesting, semi-dry, grassy bretty funk balance before a crisp, bittersweet finish. An enjoyable and unique brew.

A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Yes sireeee Bob and Yeehaw this was full on panhandle material. If it always tastes this good then I’m convinced it’s very under-rated. Awesome orange brown colour with a slight haze and a thin off white head. Amazing aroma. Loads of brett, brown sugar, cheese, sweaty socks, burnt toast curacao oranges and other madness. Dry as a nuns chuff and a bona fide keeper of the funk. My giddy aunt this is so drinkable and downable. Massively aromatic and floral. Lots of cow shit funk along with perfectly pitched bitterness. The balance is just glorious. Big bag burly bitter orange finish slaps you about a bit but leaves you up for more. So many conflicting messages bombard you. It’s brett vs bubblegum but somehow it balances perfectly. Utterly brilliant stuff.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 23, 2009
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.

j12601 (6584) - 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 (6498) - 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 (6455) - 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.

Moderate sweet taste. Light alcohol dryness. Dark fruit, raisin, chocolate, some fudge. Solid, big, rich lightly tart wild ale.
