Poured out a deep amber orangery color with a huge fluffy head that took a little bit to settle. Left some nice lacing after I was finished.
The aromas are terrific in this beer. Caramel, citrus, maltiness, and hops all blend in nicely. Some light undertones of musk round it out. I sniffed this beer quite a bit since it was so complex and wonderful.
The taste at first was very bready with notes of caramel. Hops and fruit with some citric undertones blend int with the maltiness towards the middle and end. Finished a tad on the dry side.
Mouthfeel was medium with a good dose of carbonation.
Quite the brew. When I took my first sip, at first thought it reminded me of HopDevil, but then the funkiness kicked in. If you see a bottle, do pick it up.

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.
