Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Bottle. Rusty brown in color. Has a good mild hop taste. Tastes like bread and butter with some hops. Has an almost honey finish. Very mild well balanced IPA. This is a textbook IPA.

Kevin (2194) - Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2004
bottle. dark orange almost red in color with a tan head. a bit of citrus aroma . smoothest IPA i have had. bitter is controlled with a sweet flavor. finishing bitter that lingers. this is what an IPA should taste like, not over the top blow your palate out of the water, but consistant good flavor.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2004
12 oz. bottle. It has an amber/copper color with a medium head. The aroma actually has more malt than hops. The flavor is very nice with well-balanced hops and malt. After all the west-coast IPAs I have had this year it is quite enjoyable. I could drink a couple of these whereas it can be difficult to drink a whole pint of west-coast IPA (keep pouring in those hops Vinny, Tom & Tomme!!!). Am I a true hophead? Not yet but I am getting closer every year. Great beer.

A rich, apple-pear aroma, that comes off the beer to your nose just as you take the first sip. Not powerfully hoppy, but strong. Certainly decent for the alcohol %. It was a solid beer, but as creative beers go, not something Ill go out of the way for next time.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2004
draft gbbf: i hadnt had an american beer in 5 weeks and i needed some serious hops. i had already drank 5-6 pints of british bitters and their counterparts. so, we wandered over to see what the americans had brought and poof there was victory. ordered a pint and was blown away by this beautiful hopped up beer. now i cant tell you much about it (citrus piney notes and a huge nose of cascadees) but the blandness of all the cask had gotten to me and they were all tasting about the same. but this was something different and delicious. i'll rerate when i try it again. until then its a high rate. god bless america!

IndianaRed (4091) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Bottle Pours a a deep clear amber with little head and not much lacing. Aroma is hops and malt and more hops. Some citrus, and pine. Flavor is pine, spice and grapefruit rind. Feel is light clean and smooth. Lingering bitters on the finish....but not as strong as I feareed with the name Hop Devil. Not bad for a genre that is not my fav.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Number 50 - - - Smells spicy, hoppy, and I got grapefruit too. Pours a nice amber with a small white head. Has same bitter taste, leaves it stinging my mouth too. Goes down pretty well. I dont like IPAs or ESBs really but this one wasnt that bad. So so for my half way there beer.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Finally got around to reviewing this. Big shimmering rust-orange body, aroma mild pine, watermelon...cotton candy? Taste is full and luscious, bitter all the way through but not at a mouth-puckering level. Malts meld perfectly. As it warms the body gets even bigger, if such a thing were possible. An IPA I would have again. And possibly even a third time.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Bottle: Poured a clear medium brown beer with a nice head with above standard retention. Aroma is quite nice with the hops defiantly in evidence. Taste is quite refreshing with a nice dosage of hops leaving a very enjoyable bitterness on my tongue. Full body without a hint of the alcohol showing. Great one for Victory.
