Pint at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma sweet. Bitter. Strong n the grapefruit, though has a malty streak about it. Clean brownish orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. It’s good, solid IPA. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2015
A nice, straightforward IPA, with nice tropical aroma, and citrus flavors. The finish is very piny and perhaps a little too hair-spray-bitter for my liking. However, other than that, it is a nice beer. harrisoni (19536) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Slight haze amber lasting ivory coloured head. Grapefruity hoppy aroma with a touch of caramel. It’s a pretty decent American IPA to be honest. Some pink grapefruit, some bitterness, not overly sweet, some bitterness, fresh tasty and I rather liked it. freekyp (2466) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2017 Devils Backbone IPA pours a crystal clear dark amber with an amazing head that leaves layers of lace all the way down the glass. Nice bright hop pine, resin and citrus aromas. Fresh smelling. Grapefruit and toasty malt are the primary flavors here. Nice full round palate. Long very bitter finish. Well done. Via Fizzics.
