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!

3.55/5 rDev -2.5%
Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid, slightly earthy citrus forward hop presence all around.
