3.9/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Dated: MAR 0211. Poured into a pint glass.
A. Poured a nice two finger head that was slightly paler than the color of a banana shake. The body itself is a nice looking orangey-amber. Retains a frosting up top and has light lacing that slowly gives up and falls down.

S. Citrus dominates the nose with orange and grapefruit being the most apparent scent. Pine also noted.

T. Bitter citrus intro that glides into a slight malt flavor then back into the bitter range with pine hop flavor.

M. For as much as I see bubbles rising to the surface on this one, the carbonation is pretty light. It's also a heavier bodied beer with a creamy feel to it.

Coming once again from the cold north, Traverse City MI, is Diabolical India Pale Ale

Pours a majestic copper gold, and is quite hazy. The smell is that of strong pine and hints of floral hops that emanate from this gem. Bitter is an understatement, and its devilish name is symbolic of the punch that it gives. To the tastebuds it is both refreshing and abrasive, but has a nice smooth aftertaste that overflows with hoppy goodness. Pours a medium head, and the taste is reflective of the smell.

Drinkability: This is a solid IPA from the folks in Northern Michigan, but is not a beer that could be drank in an quanitity (unless one wanted to end up on the floor with a headache the next morning). Happy drinking!
