I had Devil Dancer at the Founders event at Big Hunt in DC. It poured with a cloudy orange colour and although it didn't have much of a head, it maintained good lacing. It has a delicious, sweet, orange smell that made me want to drink it immediately. The flavour was initially tangy and orange then some tangy, bitter orange rind flavours kicked in. Throughout, there was a delicious tang in the back of my mouth. The bitter hoppiness built as I drank more. My glass was nice and thick in my mouth but lacked carbonation. I love was double IPAs, and this was really delicious: one of my favourites of the style.

Pours rusty amber and red with a this line of beige bubbles. Not really enough here to count on any head retention and a few flecks of 'lace'.
Caramel notes out of the malt that is more of a corn syrup and alcohol mixture. Hops provide a dark tangerine and apricot tone with some apple juice mixing with the sugars.
Malt is way lighter here than on the nose, thank goodness, a nice bready quality with backing of caramel and molasses. Hops hit with dark orange citrus and an herbal backing, somewhat onion-y and gnarly that carries through the bitterness in the finish. Herbal and earthy in the aftertaste that compliments the bitterness.
Smooth carbonation, a sipper but not overly heavy handed. Solid over the palate and you can feel a nice viscosity allowing the hops to stick. Alcohol is present but well under what I feared.
A sipping DIPA with a crazy amount of malt and surprisingly enough hops to balance, though it doesn't particularly excel in that department. I was fearing the size of the beer but it is drinkable in its own way.

The color and smell of the beer is great. It has a nice caramel color and a sweet hoppy smell. At 12% the alcohol content is a little high for my liking, but its a nice beer to sip on for a lazy cool afternoon. To me this is more of a fall beer to drink at night.
