Pours a nice darker color for an IPA. Only got a small head built up but great lacing down the glass. Smell is piney with a hint of malt sweetness. Great hop taste with this one. For a hop centered beer they keep everything in check. It's hop dominated but very well rounded. I like a beer that goes overboard with hops but I know a great balance as well. Great beer and for sure one to put on your list of beers to try.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a beautiful brigjt reddish orange, with half inch of off white head, leaves some attractive lacing. Smell is tangerine, pine, grass, and some floral hops also. Taste is all of that, tangerine and floral hops are most prominent. This is a really balanced IPA, very nice flavor, not over the top. Body isn't overly dry, not thick or thing, just right. Plenty of life and very drinkable. This beer is great, must be the freshest Hopdevil I have ever had, says best before April 7th 2012.

A darker IPA with a very thin head that turned to nothing but a few suds. Great pine and floral smell. Has some sweet roasted malt taste, even some burnt sugar, followed but spicy, floral, but not some much bitter hop notes. Easy to drink, doesn't over whelm the pallet. I actually find it quite mellow, like an extra floral pale ale.
