Thanks to beerhan for the bottle. Dated Oct 31

Hazy reddish orange color with barely a one finger head achieved with a vigorous pour. Little lacing.

Aroma is very light but with inviting citrus notes. The taste combines citrus with spicy hops on a bready malt base.

Good body and mouthfeel. A bit light but very drinkable. A tasty IPA. I would like to try it again with a fresher bottle. This one seems like it has some potential.

Saw Diabolical on the shelf at Jungle Jims and couldn't resist a beer with 66.6 IBU and 6.66% ABV. Seems like a winner

A: Pours a hazy orange in the glass with about 2 fingers head with some lace left behind.

S: Nose is lemon, pepper, citrus, and malt

T: Taste is strong citrus and a bit of pepper as well as some lingering bitterness that mellows after a short while.

M: Mildly carbonated and easy to drink

O: It isn't my favorite IPA but it certainly would make a great 6 pack to drink in the summer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy copper with a nice cap of off-white foam. Pretty good lacing.

Smells is very citrusy with pineapple and grapefruit being dominant. A tiny bit of grain is present as well.

Flavor is pineapple and grapefruit up front followed by a bit of tartness. Some earthyness and grain is present towards the finish.There is a strong bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky.

The whole beer just seems a little rough around the edges. It is a little bit harsh and would probably be a one and done for me.

A-Pours an orange, amber color with two fingers of white head.

S-Pineapple and pine with some honey and caramel.

T-Pineapple and pine with light caramel notes.

M-Medium and effervescent with a dry finish.

D-This one uses a hop profile that I'm not terribly fond of, but other than that this is a decent beer.
