It’s arguable that our menacingly delicious HopDevil has always been wild. With bold German malts and whole flower American hops, this India Pale Ale is anything but prim. But add a touch of brettanomyces, the unruly beast responsible for the sharp tang and deep funk found in many Belgian ales, and our WildDevil emerges completely untamed. Floral, aromatic hops still leap from this amber ale, as a host of new fermentation flavor kicks up notes of citrus and pine. Pour yourself a glass today—if you dare.

I love Hop Devil and I had high hopes. It was good but didn't rock my world.

The brew produced an eruption of Vesuvian proportions when opened creating a cleaning event that will go down highly ranked in my wife's journal of household disaster's precipitated by her husband. I lost three quarters of this fine beer. Even after the explosive opening it poured a hazy amber producing a huge, to the point of being difficult to pour, finely bubbled, lasting, egg shell head that left nice chunks of lacing. Aroma is tart citrus, resinous & floral hops, caramel, Brett musty funk, earth & hay. Taste is Brett mustiness, earth, citric & pine hops, band-aide phenolic. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, juicy, wet & a little oily with a low level of astringency.
