Now Quaffing: Victory HopDevil

Hazy golden with a nice fluffy white head. Smell is dominated by hops which are both citrusy and floral. Taste is fairly balanced with the malt up front which arrives quite smoothly on the palate, followed by a nice dose of juicy grapefruit hops. The hops are not overly oily, but they do coat nicely and end leaving some bitterness behind. The finish also has taste which I can only describe as sweetly acidic, like an apple with the skin still on it. Overall a very drinkable IPA with a very pleasing hop profile. I like that despite its hazy, unfiltered appearance it wasn't overly heavy or yeasty.

A-Much darker than the ipa's I typically perfer, looks much more amber than ale.

S-Underwhelming on the hops, got mostly fruit.

T-Definitely east coast style, very piny.

M-Medium-bodied.

O-Overall a good very complex east-coast style ipa, but this just isin't my type of pale. However, this is my first taste of Hop Devil and I will definitely be trying more and hope it grows on me!

4.24/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Dark orange, somewhat cloudy, moderate head of white, fast fade, but with a remainder that produces considerable lacing.

S - Floral hops, with malt sweetness, with subtle grapefruit and other citrus.

T - Malty sweetness couples with a big pine and grapefruit pith hop hit, closing down with bitterness that rules the close until, in the final trail off the malt and sweetness remains.

M - There is mild drying, moderate carbonation, and a bit of build on the tongue, but all very manageable.

O - An IPA designed primarily for balance. With the big hop flavors is a strong malt backbone. The overall result is delicious.
