4.7/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Servingtype: bottle

Appearance: Dark golden fizzy goodnes

Smell: wow! Spicy citrus with extra spice, this beer has an excellent citrusy aroma

Taste: The hop flavor hits you right in the face but in a very gently and loving way, once again, citrusy, maybe some lychee and a slight bit of pepper

Mouthfeel, nothing devillish about it, goes down really smooth

Drinkability: very easy to drink

PS: I wish this beer was legal in MS

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.
