Poured into a tulip glass from a 12 oz bottle. Pours an amber color with a thick foam head. Flavor is very fruity and unique. Notes of grapefruit, blueberry, with a slight bitter finish. Overall a very great beer! If I ever see Victory Brewing, I always try to pick some up.

Poured into a tall clear glass. Has an dark bronze-copper color, if not somewhat amber. Somewhat sudsy finger thick head. Good lacing.

Sweet caramel malt. Very floral. Orange peel, notes of resin, other citrus notes, bread malt, some grapefruit juice, and wood aroma.

Grapefruit peel, resin, and pine notes upfront. Notes of caramel, tea leaves, toffee, syrup, orange peel, toast, and many other earthy flavors. Overall medium bitterness. Feels smooth.

HopDevil India Pale Ale brewed by Victory Brewing Company with an ABV of 6.70% This American IPA pours out a deep golden amber color with a nice white. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with hop bitterness and a slight sweetness. You also pick up a good amount of earthy grains and malts in the smell as well. So far this brew has the look and smell of most American IPA's on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste, it is Bold with flavors. You first get a blast of hop bitterness, then this brew mellows out to a smooth sweetness. There is a lot going on in HopDevil India Pale Ale. The body of this IPA is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a nice balance to it. It is really hard to pick up on the 6.70% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. The mouth feel is Bold, Hoppy, Rich, Smooth, Clean and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give HopDevil India Pale Ale a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Victory Brewing Company - Downingtown, did a real nice job with this American IPA.

Excellent, delicious IPA. Looks nice, amber color with nice head and some lingering lacing. Smells of citrus hoppiness. Tastes of nice hops, more orange, lemon and grapefruit than floral. Also some sweet malt to balance everything out, as well as mild grain and caramel. Smooth finish, thin mouthfeel with just the right amount of mild carbonation throughout. Very little bitter aftertaste. Very impressive!

Clear orange-amber with a big, fluffy, cream-colored head. The aroma is fresh baked bread is just a bit grainy, with grassy and resinous tangerine notes and hints of tropical fruit. Hops dominate the bittering, though a bit more subdued in the flavor and aroma than I prefer.
