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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.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: Poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was apple and hops. The flavor was funky, sourness, slight fruit like apple, and some hops. Overall, a great combination. A wild ale for those that might not like wild ales.

Enjoyed on tap at Emporium Arcade Bar in Chicago, IL while watching Bears vs Jets. Appearance is a dark ruby red with a nice white head that lightly laces to the glass. Aroma is very pronounced, nice hop profile, huge pine notes, wild yeast, pretty great. Taste is abrasive but delicious. Really enjoying this one.

60minuteman (758) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2014 Aroma of malt, burnt toast, wheat, grain, caramel, hop. Possibly some citrus or fruit maybe apple? Flavor is on par with smell. There is a sour bite but hard to detect. The sweetness from the malts comes through. Mouthfeel is medium-full body. Sticky lace.

Iphonephan (3277) - McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Frfom a 75 cl corked and caged bottle. Pours a clear copper with a thick and frothy off white head. Grassy nose. Flavors of tropical fruits, butterscotch and tart lemon. Tart, bitter finish.

Dr_Fellini (417) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle to glass. Maybe a bit old, as it was bottled in June. Pours mostly clear amber copper color with a light tan head. Aroma is faint, slight tart, heavy belgian yeast. Flavor is wild yeast, light caramel sweetness, earthy funk, hint of tartness. Funk wild yeast lingers in the palate. Not overly impressive.

MacBoost (1280) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2014
2014 bottling. 3 months old. Pours a hazed amber with a large head. Bottle gushed just a bit as I opened it... I wouldn’t sit on this for very long or you are going to be losing a shit ton of beer upon opening it. Aromas of moderate funk, some toffee and floral notes. Taste is bretty funk with a touch of barnyard, pretty damn dry. Flavors of spicy brett, nocturnally produced guano, freshly picked dandelions. Pretty deep and complex. This is nowhere near an ipa, it’s a brett inoculated funky train that goes all the way to crazy city. Very well executed Brett beer. Love it.

ttroha (275) - Americus, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Tap from Maltitude. Pours dark amber with frothy white head. Aroma of funk, apricot, and spicy and floral hops. Flavor is sweet and hoppy at first, followed by a tart and funky aftertaste that lingers on the tongue. Medium bodied. An interesting mix of IPA and sour. A different beer. I liked it.

A great twist on one of my favorite beers. The addition of wild Belgium yeast to hop devil creates exactly what you would think, slightly more creamy and smooth which compliments the hop devils powerful malt, caramel, pine and citrus. The color remains a beautiful orange mahogany but with some added cloudiness. Overall a great beer for the hop enthusiasts.

drsandman (311) - New York, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Mini growler from beer table pantry. Pours a deep amber orange, big off white head. Aroma is funky apricot, barnyard, Brett, spicy floral hop, sweet fruit / cherry. Flavor is sweet up front, then light hop, ends tart and funky with an underpinning of bitter hop. Medium body, pretty interesting mix of hop and sour flavor... Big on both hops & Brett. Very complex palate, enjoyed trying.

onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Clear brilliant copper under a thin foamy cap. Funky hoppy nose of earthy barn hay and toffee and an earthy grassy hop. The toffee is heavily pronounced in the flavor with a very gentle brettiness, a certain drying barn hay tone, and a gentle dry earthy floral hop finish. Very flavorful, interesting what Brett does to this hop monster.

Victory Wild Devil Ale is hard to describe. Funky aroma coming off a beet red pour and a thin off-white head. Taste is very funky, a little sour with a bit of an aftertaste. Lots of complexity there, so the flavors are hard to place. Nicely balanced malt and bitterness. Wild Devil is sure to fool you. I may have to update this after second tasting.
