Coming once again from the cold north, Traverse City MI, is Diabolical India Pale Ale

Pours a majestic copper gold, and is quite hazy. The smell is that of strong pine and hints of floral hops that emanate from this gem. Bitter is an understatement, and its devilish name is symbolic of the punch that it gives. To the tastebuds it is both refreshing and abrasive, but has a nice smooth aftertaste that overflows with hoppy goodness. Pours a medium head, and the taste is reflective of the smell.

Drinkability: This is a solid IPA from the folks in Northern Michigan, but is not a beer that could be drank in an quanitity (unless one wanted to end up on the floor with a headache the next morning). Happy drinking!
