look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (best by 5/9/14)

A: Hazy, copper colored body. Almost no lacing and only a pencil head.

S: A nice, pine malt body, with an almost caramelized sweetness in there. I even get a bit of onion/garlic in there.

T: So, apparently this is 3 months old since it expires in 2 months and they date Hop Devil with a 5 month shelf life. Whoops. The hops have really died out. All malt here. Light and piney. Piney hop aftertaste. A bit watery even.

M: Prickly, coarse and rough. Gets smoother as it warms up.

O: I will try to get it fresh, but I have had older IPAs that have tasted better than this.

A: copper, amber. 1.5 finger head nice lacing. Dark color for an ipa.

S: mmm citrus and pine

T: east coast ipa taste where the taste is primarily pine. But there is a citrus undertone of mostly grapefruit and the caramel malt sweetness nicely balances the beer.

M: pretty light bodied

O: a great beginner ipa but I revisit it often... Because it's great. A perfect example of an east coast ipa
