I am new to the beer review and do not know all of the proper terminology to use that would justify this incredible beer. I am a big Victory fan, have been for years and HopDevil is my favorite hands down. Hopdevil can be consumed all year long becuase it is always available. If you are a hop head this is definitely a beer for you. HopDevil has a wonder hoppy flavor and it is not too over powering in the alcohol department in other words you can drink a 6 pack after work and still drive home for dinner. When a hopDevil is poured into a glass you imediately notice its pleasant smell and its color. The taste is burst of flavors the kick the you know what out of your mouth and tongue. I enjoy fish, steak and poultry while consuming HopDevil. Give it the old college try!!!

Reviewing the Hop Devil Ale from Victory Brewing Company.
Score: 87

2011 vintage bottle with March 18 2012 freshness date served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a transparent deep red/orange copper color with a finger of soapy cream colored head that settles into a thin lace across the surface of the beer. Excellent lacing. 4/5

Smell: Lots of funky citrus, grapefruit, and earthy hops dominate the nose, though the aroma is not pungent. 4/5

Taste: Lots of zesty grapefruit, spices, and citrus hops upfront. Some pine. Sharp caramel maltiness on the mid-palate. At first, the zestiness is crisp, though there is a lingering finish of earthy bitterness and dirt. As the beer layers, however, pine and zesty grapefruit gradually grow in the finish. The maltiness also grows in the finish too as the brew layers. Very smooth and refreshing, and not too hops-forward (though I am admittedly a hop head). 4/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high-medium carbonation. Oily on the tongue. Dry, lingering finish that is both bitter and malty. 4/5

Overall: A zestily hopped single IPA with a strong malt backbone. A very balanced brew.

Recommendation: Given its balanced hoppiness, this is a good starter IPA for casual beer drinkers. Beer geeks should enjoy this one too.

Pairings: Falafel or beef shawarma.

Cost: $9.99 for a six pack.
