A- Pours a nice clouded rust color with strong hues of orange and a touch of brownish amber. The head is a sticky 1-2 fingers tall that dissipates rather quickly with little lacing left behind.

S-Very complex nose. The hop profile is huge, but very interesting. For a beer that is so large on hop flavor, the malts provide a very interesting compliment as well. Citrus is apparent, (as it is with many IPA's) but there are hints of darker fruits (plum, raisen?) as well that give hopdevil a very unique nose.

M-The mouth compliments the beer very well. It is thick enough to soften some of the harsher flavors, but still soft enough to get the most out of the delicate hop tones.

T-A fantastic beer for hopheads and beer lovers alike. The hops are absolutely huge, but surprisingly not very bitter for the amount they are featured. The malts do a good deal of balancing the beer out and highlighting all this beer has to offer. The finish is very clean, but by then the flavors do dissipate a bit too much leaving a small but subtle aftertaste.

O-Excellent beer and one of if not Victory's very best.
