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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

Style; glass: Belgian Ale, Trappist 22 fl oz x 6.7% ABV = 147.4 / 60 = 2.45 beers * 150 C = 367.5 calories (est.) Purchased at: Canal’s Lawrenceville, NJ for $9.99 It’s a deep bitter style that eludes traditional style descriptions - not quite an IPA, not quite a Belgian, but delicious, dank, and a bit soapy. Recommended as a different direction for hop lovers and Belgian lovers.

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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Hazy amber with big, flotsam, off-white head / Perfumey nose of brett, herbs, and orchard fruit / Light to medium body, tart and dry, with long, bitter finish / Upfront brett punch with flavors of rose petal, violets, chrysanthemum, apple, caramel, coriander, white pepper, and oak / On a par with Jolly Pumpkin.

poured off the tap an amber coppish color with a good head that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma was akin to Orval nice brett thing going on, fruity, definitely some tropical fruit, and the american hops comming through. flavor was incredible and very complex. started full with malts, balancing nicely the flavor of the hops and brett, citrussy, but with a bretty edge. as the beer got to the finish the brett really turned into that nice horseblanket aroms and dryed out a bit. nice medium bodied mouthfeel. my new favorite victory brew.

For a beer thats not very "big" this one gets high marks. The scent is obviously piney but also a deceptive hint of sour. It has that lactic edge but stops short of sour, it is "sprucey" but very smooth and balanced and a nice copper color. I could drink several.

A deep dark orange color shoots out of the bottle also there seems to be an even darker center. At first there is a sweet malty flavor that comes out and finishes with a grassy herbal like ending. The taste of this beer is unlike any other; there is a sweet earthy start to the beer and concludes with a peppery like ending. This beer is truely one of Victory’s best creations!

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours a transluscent, slightly hazy ruby with a huge, two-finger, bubbly beige head. Aroma of juicy hop resins, barnyard funk, gruyere cheese, pine, fresh dark cherries, and ripe grapefruit. Medium bodied with a funky, fuely, modestly tart palate. Finishes with a sweet cherry-funk sourness which lingers on the tongue for awhile. Excellent wild ale. Hail Victory!

Victory Hop Devil is one of my personal favorite IPAs, so I was excited to try the Wild Devil. Had it on tap. Pours with a nice deep amber color, with a nice creamy head. It has a different taste and flavor than the Hop Devil. A nice dose of the carmel malt flavor to start that transitions into a nice bitter hop flavor. A wonderful beer that IPA fans need to try. Highly recommended.
