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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

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.

Tap. Clear red orange pour with a nice white head and great lacing. Aroma is sweet pineapple, caramel, and earthy funk. Taste is tropical fruits, toffee, funk, and light bread. Medium body. Brett acts as a really nice compliment.

Great fresh hoppy flavor mixed with fruity finish. Spicy citrus body.Wonderfully flavorful . Would still call this an IPA compared to a wild ale.

Draft pours clear amber with low head. Aroma is light toast and spice with some pine. Taste is similar with a touch of spice and funk on the finish, would like to see how this ages

kkleu357 (253) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Amber body with a huge lasting 1.5 inch head. Typical sour smell with a hint of hops. Not really sour tasting though. Kind of sweet. Very Brett like, if that makes sense. Pretty good.

hopmelt (157) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours mostly clear dark orange, big thick creamy of white head, nice lacing. Aroma citrus, floral hop, horse blanket phenols, slight bready malt, faint antiseptic note. Taste bitter citrus, floral hops, big phenolic notes as in nose, slight sweet bready malt to balance it out. Mouthfeel thicker side of medium body, medium carbonation, slight bitter astringent bite, dry finish. Overall very interesting, brett really adds to the complexity of the beer, not sure every ipa would work with it, but this one does for sure!

Strife21 (118) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours dark reddish bronze with thick off white head. Smell is fruit, berries, yeast, citrus and hops. Almost like dessert wine. Taste is cherry, fruit, yeast, red wine and dry hoppy finish. Light body, light carbonation.

Ontape (224) - Valley Village, California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
June 2014 bottle. Pours a transparent copper with a touch of white carb. Aroma is muddled for me, not offensive but can’t really pull much out. Taste is heavy on the caramel up front, lightly dried out by the brett. It’s too rich and sweet up front for my tastes.
