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.

On tap at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy golden-yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, spices, and some citrus-like aroma. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest finish. There is a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is very citrus-forward and pretty drinkable.
