Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2013
First off, this bottle says best by March 18th 2013, so it’s about a week past its prime. Pretty clear beer with some small particles floating around. Two fingers worth of head that stays at about one through the glass. Very nice lacing. The aroma is of spice and malt with hops there, but definitely in the background and more subtle (I presume because of the age of this beer). The taste is... interesting. Truth be told, it tastes like V8 juice to me as far as the "spice" is concerned, but without any vegetable notes (thank God). Sweet through the front of each sip, with a slightly bitter, spicy finish. Really, I get a LOT of peppery notes in HopDevil, and I don’t mind. The mouthfeel is smooth, and a slight coating is left in the mouth on each sip. HopDevil’s a very good beer, and this one’s not even fresh. I would try this again out of a fresher bottle.

IslandHaole (1268) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUN 15, 2017
Clear Ruby-orange colored beer with a creamy beige head that quickly fades. Layers of sweet malts, caramel, floral & pine hops with hints of oak barrel. Sweet up front, chewy candy like a fruit infused taffy quickly followed by the bitter hops, seems to become even more hoppy and bitter in the follow. Nicely done! Good feel and the alcohol is well-masked with just a mild warming in the finish. Dangerously drinkable.

Nose of citris and light caramel biscuit malts. Light toffee colour with thin head. Decent hop bitterness with some caramel toffee malt flavours present. Very smooth with good balance. Nice syrupy texture. Easy drinking.

I am not big on aromas, but this one has a strong pleasant, hoppy scent with a hint of fruit. In fact I liked it more than the taste - which was typical bitter IPA, with bitter aftertaste. Not spicy (though it claims to be). I don’t like spicy beers so this was actually a positive for me. Overall, it is better than some of the IPAs I have tried, though Troegs Blizzard of Hops has a better taste in my opinion.

Hazy dark ochre liquid, average head. Light, fruity aroma of hops. Medium body, strong carbonation. Taste is bitter.

ordybill (1759) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Peachtree City. The appearance is a slightly cloudy copper color with a medium sized off-white colored head. The aroma is citrus hops. The taste is similar to the nose, citrus and some slight malt in the background. An excellent IPA.
