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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

An interesting beer. Poor a nice orange to amber color with a nice off white head and nice lacing. ARoma is very nice with intense piney hops. Flavor is caramel and citrus hopps with a dry finish and a little funky taste to me as yet undescribed. All in all a decent beer and worth the calarois as are all Vicotry products

Bottle shared with dad for Halloween. Snifter pour was golden yellow with big head. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, funk, horseblanket, biscuit, and wet hay. Taste is similar with the fruit first (citrus) and then the funk, biscuit, and hay. Big carb, finish is dry and unexciting. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange with a high, sticky, heavy, off-white head. Nose is orange, lime, latex, lavender, sage, funk, rosemary, and honey -- thereís a lot going on here. On the tongue, things start off with a surprisingly cool herbal note; itís almost like camphor or tea tree oil. After that, it gets snarly, funky, and bitter, with some underlying grapefruit and orange caramel notes; I have to say, though, Iím not getting a lot of sourness. Makes me wonder if itís dropped out somehow. Finish is long and IPA-bitter. Iím just not getting as much wild here as I expected.

bellco33 (519) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours hazy golden with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, Belgian funk, coriander, and resin. Taste is mildly sweet, moderately tart, and gets a little bitter on the back end from the hops. Solid beer, light to medium body, good stuff.

Bottle at home. "Bottled on June 11 2014". Clear amber pour with a huge, creamy white head. The aroma is funky Brett with citrus notes also evident. Wild Devil has a sweet malty base, surely becoming deeper and more savory after a year on the lees. Really complex, with black pepper, shiitake mushroom stock, apricot chutney, grassy hops, horseblanket, and leathery, rubbery, earthy Brett flavors coming through. A very long finish starts with a glimmer of the bright, fresh, hoppiness of Hop Devil, but quickly turns to funky Brett notes. Really nicely balanced, more woody than sour, no nasty balsamic vinegar flavors. Outstanding.

desurfer (1262) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Pours a pale gold, super fizzy with a huge head. Moderately hoppy with a nice tart sourness as well. Very effervescent. As a sour fan, I really liked it.

Bottle from Boise Coop. Bottle opens with a loud pop and pours out with a huge head, clumpy head and lacing throughout. Acetic aroma, but taste and finish is where it gets interesting. Spicy notes, peppery almost, flowery, and even the malt comes through. Biting, snappy finish.

Perfect clarity on an amber-hued liquid. Silky off-white foam displays nice stickiness, webbing the sides of my glass like Spider-Man. Aroma is oaky, bretty -- green wood, pear, Granny Smith, pineapple, mild zoo-like funk. Snappy flavor showcases different aspects with each sip. This time itís citrusy; this time itís funky; this time itís oaky; this time it has a smooth honey finish. Green apple and sharp oak are prominent, with barnyard funk permeating the middle before a crisp finish that blends lime juice and biscuits. The base beerís hardly recognizable here, but as barrel-aged IPAs go, this is the tits.
