I was not really sure how to rate HopDevil since this is from a growled of cask beer, but I think this beer is more representative of the beer on cask. I don't know how many tmrw I've had hopdevil, but each for some reason I get surprised by how good it is compared to the big west coast IPAs I've been drinking. The beer is definitely redder than most Ca IPAs meaning it has more caramel and toasty malt flavors. The hops though really sing, they have a rich woody and earthy edge, probably from the cask dry hopping, and it is just a strong manly flavor. If they made a cologne from this beers bouquet I would buy it. It has the citrus peel, freah cut grass, and damp oak leaf thing going one. The malt sweetness and crackery toast provide the perfect counter balance to the beer. Even though the beer was definitely undercarbed it still had great texture and wasn't the least bit syrupy. Really great
