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

Appearance: A somewhat hazy burnt-orange body with a solid finger of off-white and bubbly head. Good lacing.

Aroma: Floral, spicy, and citrusy hops balanced by a brown-sugary malt body. A bit of booze is lurking around the edges.

Taste: Spicy, grapefruity hops dominate at first and are decently bitter. There's a solid biscuity, sweet, and nutty malt backbone bringing up the rear, well up to the challenge put forth by the hops. The booze is there, but stays in its place. Everything meshes well and is perfectly balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with good carbonation and a somewhat dry finish.

Drinkability: Goes back easily enough given the style and alcohol content. A good session IPA.

Verdict: With a solid malt backbone balanced perfectly with brilliant hops, HopDevil is one of the best IPAs that I've tried yet. I'm very much looking forward to trying the other Victory offerings I can get my hands on here in Houston.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

pours a hazy copper colour with a fairly thin but lasting head. hints of citrus and spice in the smell along with what seemed to be a bread-type smell as well. taste echoes the smell with hints of salt as well. it's definitely a hoppy brew, but the hops are not overbearing. i'm normally not a big fan of ipa's and therefore wasn't expecting to enjoy this one as much as i did, but i really dug this beer. alot. another solid offering from victory.
