I poured the contents of the bottle into an imperial pint glass. It was a deep shade of crimson. A white fluffy head formed initially which soon receded to a thin white cap. Each sip produced a web of lacing along the glass.

The beer had a light aroma of grapefruit, but little else.

The taste was quite good. Grapefruit and sweet wheat bread dominated. Simple and satisfying.

The mouthfeel for this brew seemed perfect for the style: medium body with a moderate level of carbonation.

The drinkability was quite good--it was refreshing and crisp; though I feel that the relatively high ABV, though not noticable in the taste, limits the sessionability of this fine ale.

3.8/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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!

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.
