12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a goldish orange color with a reddish tint to it. Very nice white head to it that leaves a nice lace behind

S: Piney from the hops but not overwhelming, more malt smell then hops which was unexpected.

T: Citrus and pine hops jump out right away with a little bit of a bitter taste to it. Little bit of a fruity malty taste

M: medium carbonation, medium body and little hint of bitterness

O: Being so close to Victory I am very partial to them but this is a fantastic IPA no matter how you look at it.

This beer pours semi-dark golden color with a great white frothy head.

Oh my the hops! No wonder they call it HopDevil! The stinging hops scent is complimented with a hint of fruits.

The taste is awesome. I was expecting the hops to be overpowering but they do very well. The fruits also play on the back end here.

The mouthfeel is great, smooth and delicious.

Overall it is a great beer for hop lovers, which I can be at times.

A- amber colored with inch thick and bubbly off white head, head quickly settles leaving moderate lacing.

S- i get a nice semi-sweet balance of citrus and hops and bready malts, lingering earthy tones.

T- follows the nose, very well balanced taste initially it's slightly sweet and sour from the combination of the citrus and piney hops, very malty for the style but it helps give it a nice finish.

M- medium to full bodied, thicker than i expected probably due to those bready malts, light carbonation, pleasant aftertaste.

O- very nice IPA, better than what i expected, the citrus and piney hops balance out nice with the bready malts, and those earthy tones make it different, better than most entry level IPAs.

From 01/22/12 notes. Picked up a bottle of this on Friday at Stateline in MD. 12 oz. bottle poured into my Duvel tulip.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent reddish amber color with moderate carbonation evident and one finger of fluffy off white head. Light lacing left on the glass.

s - Smells of fruity malts, pine hops, caramel malts, grapefruit, and citrus hops. Hops are there but not overly strong, and more malts than I was expecting.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, pine hops, fruity malts, pale malts, caramel malts. taste has more hops than the nose but is still decently malty, and has some lightly bitter to it. A step up from the nose to me.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation, with some light bitterness.

o - Overall a nice IPA, though I was expecting it to be hoppier. A nice mix of hops and malts, and pretty easy to drink. Would give another shot sometime.
