This beer pours a cloudy rust color with no head or lacing. The aroma is of caramel and fruity hops. The flavor leads with caramel and citrus notes but is followed by nothing but overwhelming hop bitterness. It's got a thick mouthfeel and leaves a very bitter aftertaste that lasts way too long. Victory HopDevil is a pure hop bomb, it fits the style but the bitterness is over the top. Not recommended!

Used to love this beer while living in PA. Don't understand what happened to this beer. Apperance: great. An aluring dark amber color. Smell is also good. Taste: nasty metallic after taste. What happened to this beer? Definitely down hill from previous offerings. What went wrong?

I had this beer many moons ago and enjoyed it much. I recently bought it again due to slim selection. This beer is not what it used to be. I am seeing more and more that companies that have had a good history of serving up great beers are falling short more and more. I guess nothing is sacred anymore, even good beer in the current world of greed and corner cutting. Thanks alot Victory. Count me out.
