Had this poured into a pint glass. Awesome beer to have in the Spring or Fall months, but really any time of year. Super crisp, outstanding flavor of hops and citrus (especially big on the hops as the name would lead you to believe). Really nice copper color with a whitish foam head. Just enough boozy flavor to let you know it's there without getting into the range of an imperial or anyhting like that. One of the best offerings I've had from Victory, very nice beer.

*March 23rd review from RateBeer*

First off, this bottle says best by March 18th 2013, so it’s about a week past its prime.

Appearance: Pretty clear beer with some small particles floating around. Two fingers worth of head that stays at about one through the glass. Very nice lacing.

Aroma: The aroma is of spice and malt with hops there, but definitely in the background and more subtle (I presume because of the age of this beer).

Taste: The taste is... interesting. Truth be told, it tastes like V8 juice to me as far as the "spice" is concerned, but without any vegetable notes (thank God). Sweet through the front of each sip, with a slightly bitter, spicy finish. Really, I get a LOT of peppery notes in HopDevil, and I don’t mind. The mouthfeel is smooth, and a slight coating is left in the mouth on each sip.

HopDevil’s a very good beer, and this one’s not even fresh. I would try this again out of a fresher bottle.
