12 ounce draft pour into a tulip. 5.5% ABV.
Appearance: Shiny golden amber. Brilliant, with a thin cap of foam (4.5/5).
Aroma: Clean, fresh, noble hop aroma, along with sweet apples (4/5).
Taste: This is a beautiful, delicate, beer. The hops are the predominate flavor, but it’s certainly not bitter. I also get a bit of pilsner malt and spiced cider (4.25/5).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation (4.25/5).
Overall: This beer is a wonderful example of the style; fresh, bright, and alive. I respect AleSmith for leaving this draft-only, because it would quickly die in a bottle (4.25/5).

4.08/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

on tap at whole foods. 4$ happy hour. poured into a nb 0.47L glass.

appearance: bright orange with not much head or retention.

smell: zested orange and slight grapefruit. with a nice yeast undertone.

taste: follows the nose well with a good taste of watery oranges picked from your own tree. and again a smidge of yeast underlying

mouthfeel: a bit wet but nice carbonation inviting me to take another drink.
with a refreshing dry finish, superb.

overall: would love this by the pool or mowing the lawn, very refreshing.
I haven't had its bigger brother horny devil yet but plan on it. lil devil was described to me as half of horny devil.

on tap only as far as I know. so worth a try if you come across it.
