A-Beautful rust/amber color with a thick tan foam that aderes to the glass. Beer is opaque but not cloudy.
S-I couldn't get too much on the nose..not sure if my sniffer is broken or if the beer just doesn't have much. Did, of course get the piney hop smell that one would expect from a Belgian IPA.
T-What the smell lacked, the taste totally made up for. Nice hop zing, with a nutty flavor and carmelized sugar and fruit.
M-Oily hop feel, but nice overall.
D-Definitely could have a few of these - nice zing, but doesn't totallly take your tastebuds out of commission.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled in 2009 and held by brewery and re-distributed, then bought in 2014. Amber/orange.
A- Pours the biggest bubbly foam head I've ever seen right out of the bottle.
S- Yeasty and sour. hoppy too. candied oranges. Wild.
T- Similar to the smell really. Some sour notes from the yeast action. The hops has really mellowed out. I hope others review this delayed/aged re-release because I don't think I'm doing it justice with this review. But it's a pretty exciting/interesting beer.
M- Very bubbly and fizzy in the mouth.
O- I thought about getting some hop devil (which I haven't had yet, though I loved V's Hop Fresh) to taste alongside this one but this beer stands on its own as completely unique from the original Hop Devil. It is indeed wild, and I'm glad I tried it.
