look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured out a clear amber to orange with a look of sweet tea, The moderate sized head settled down to a thin collar of bubbles that left a good amount of clingy lace. The aroma is fairly mild piney hops with citrus notes. Tasted sweet and crisp with a slick oily mouthfeel. The finish is dry with a more distinct hop aftertaste. Very tasty and drinkable, but not bold enough to justify the name HopDevil . Very nicely balcanced, and would serve as a great introduction to microbrews for someone perpetually sucking on macro swill. Thanks resirob for sending it down south as a part of the 2003 Holiday beer exchange. If I could get this locally, I'd drink it fairly regularly.

Had at Chickee's and Pete's during a rained out Phillies game. Paired with seafood, mussels - white with garlic... Nice local beer. Dark body... Deep amber, small white head, less than a finger. Smell-hopolicious!
And tasted the same... Crisp tight and well worth the wait.

amber color, floral hop aroma and good amount of bitterness on the taste. well balanced, solid malty backbone. pretty perfectly balanced IPA and one of the most consistently decent ones out there. wouldn't take it over a lot of others but its always available and fresh

4.16/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours clear deep amber, striking for an IPA with a sepia head, rocky, 2 and a half digits high. Brilliant rings of lacing down the glass.

Nose is a bit muted but a good waft of citrus and grapefruit hops with a solid malty backing and a spicy note. The malt bill here is in full force, reminds me alot of a hoppy American red ale.

Even with the ever evolving world of IPAs changing perception of taste it's still a assault of hops on the palate. Not hugely bittering but large amounts of tart grapefruit and pine resin. The malts are a big player, caramel, bready and a solid balance, somewhat spicy. Dries rather well despite the darker malts.

Good carbonation and body, the malts kept a bit of sticky sweetness on the finish, I think this could finish a little crisper and less grainy.

Despite its presence in the Victory line-up for such a long time it's still extraordinary, I'll take it when I can find it. I love the darker malt bill and still in my top 10 when I can get it fresh.
