This beer is gorgeous. A beautiful translucent honey color which poured with about a half inch of head which stayed for the better part of five minutes. Very nice lacing that stays and stays. The smell is subtle and citrus-y. Despite it's relatively mild aroma, this beer hits the taste buds hard. Man! Bitter and sour--very much like a yellow grapefruit (definitely hop-forward. The taste is complex and deep, but the hops win out big time)--but in a really good way. A great mouthfeel--It completely coats the mouth and the taste lingers for a long time. This beer is hearty, full bodied, creamy and delicious. I have a hard time with IPAs, but this one is amazing! By far the best beer in the fridge at my local shop.

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

Appearance: Brass Copper color with a slight head with pout. Leaves notching as you consume and holds well over time.

Smell: Pine, slight malts and earthy base.

Taste: Nice bitterness with a spice kick that is difficult to pinpoint. Pine and slight roasted character. A rounded balance with a nice little kick at the end.

Mouthfeel: Good balance of body with slight carbonation.

Overall: This is my go-to IPA

There's no better thing than a quality local IPA in an affordable sixer. HopDevil fits the bill. With good head, hazy copper appearance out of the bottle, a smell of pure hops (grapefruit, pine, grass), and a malty taste that finishes with grassy and pine hops, this beer is a great combination.

That was a long sentence.

It finishes clean with a dry grapefruit peel aftertaste like an IPA should. Good carbonation and medium body make this a very drinkable IPA, with a great price and good availability.
