Very orange brew with an ivory head that lingers. Lacing is sticky and plentiful.
The aroma leans more toward the caramel malts than the hops. The tastes follow suit. This is usually the opposite of my preference in an IPA, but it works magnificently here. In fact, I was looking for something with a nice caramel malt flavor when I made the purchase. I had it between Dale's Pale Ale and Victory Hop Devil.
The mouth feel is flatter than I remember, but not to be considered a fault.
Hop Devil is a well conceived and a delicious IPA that I return to quite often, particularly when I'm looking for a great caramel taste. I feel fortunate to have the Victory products available here in Georgia.

Poured bottle into glass. 6.7% abv.
Appearance- A brilliant and clear dark red amber with a massive foamy head on it.
Smell- Citrus; orange and grapefruit. Not much else....did I mention citrus? lol
Taste- A dual blast of malt and hops. The initial malt blast is somewhat of a toasty bread character. The hops remain through the whole flavor profile until a spicy hot finish. Notes of grapefruit along with hints of sweet caramel too. Wickedly complex.
Mouthfeel- Heavy body of which is thick and creamy.
Overall- A solid example of a great IPA. This was the first craft beer I tried years ago so maybe it has a sentimental impression on me, but nevertheless, it is damn good if you dont mind a complex bitter blast. The hops linger as much as any other IPA. A must try if you're a hophead.
