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.

Maybe a bad bottle, but this was just not good.

Poured from 25.4 oz bottle into std pint glass. Bottled on date of June 11, 2014. Had this beer on tap at the Mohegan Sun Brewfest and it was among my favorites. Finally located a bottle and had to get it. The bottle did not live up to my memory. Poured a nice, slightly hazy, copper color with a large head. Head retention is excellent maintaining a good half inch throughout. Light to medium lacing. Very Brett forward aroma and strong in the flavor. Well-balanced mouthfeel with a tiny bit of bitter finish. Again, not as nice overall as I remembered on tap, but still a pretty good and interesting beer. Victory always does a good job.

Bronze in color with excellent clarity. Off white with a hint of light brown in the half inch tightly knit foam. Brussels lacing. Weak aroma is Brett dominated. The flavor is Brett forward with very sour and tart notes. I can't get anything else in the flavor as it seems unbalanced. The mouth is aggressively carbonated.
