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Originally made in 2008-9, remade in 2014.

The worst of the prior reviews about sums this up for me. Aroma reminded me of an unattended-to men’s room. I’ve never quaffed a glass of urine, but the aroma gave me the impression I was doing just that. A huge disappointment since I love this brewery’s Hop Devil. I paid $8 for a bomber and threw out most of it. The caveat is that this is the first Belgian I have tried in about 20 years, and perhaps this is what they are like and they just don’t get along with me.

UncleKorm (1001) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle poured a lightly hazy orange hue w/ an enormous foamy head and minor sticky lacing. Mild earthy aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are apricot, lemon, barnyard funk, and straw. Full bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750mL corked & caged beer - Bottled 11 JUN 14 Quite a struggle to get this bad boy open. I’m rewarded with a hazy, very bright orange beer, pouring a pillowy white head. Aroma explodes from the bottle, filling the room straight away; cooked citrus, pine sap, orange sherbert, grapefruit, grass, leading onto funky notes of fermenting pineapple, hay & horse sweat, with peppery phenolic undertones. Body rather fuller than expected for strength/Brett infected (was expecting dryness!), lively carbonation, lingers for a good measure on the palate. Plenty of hops on offer here - resiny, leafy, spicy, candied orange, pine sap, theres a nice sweet pale malt note in there leading onto funky Bretty grapefruit rind, pineapple, hay & barnyard. Bitterness is relentless, lingering spicy phenolic finish. Really interesting blend of big US hops & Bretty funk - works well!

DSG (7536) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[3/2/15] Draught at Brouwer’s Cafe in Seattle. Nice deep red-amber color with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, funk and fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, mild funk, hops, some fruitiness and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

BrettTaylor (622) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Poured as 4 ounce taster at Roanoke’s For the Love of the Brew fest. Nice Brett notes with earthiness and spice making a good presence in what otherwise would be a normal’ish IPA.

Ctplt777 (251) - - MAR 7, 2015
Definitely funky. There a wet hay, barn aroma with a sublte sweetness. Tropical fruits and some citrus. Tastes like an IPA with some funk. As it warms up I started to get some more complex aromas and flavors. It started to taste like a saison. Overall an interesting beer.

MadRobin (2241) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Poured from 750ml bottle. Hazy, orange-amber with a huge, billowing khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of citrus, hay, barnyard, fruit and bread. Taste of funky fruit, bread, hay, caramel and pine. Medium body and medium carbonation. A rather nice interplay of funk and hops. The slight tartness is balance by the solid malt background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
