Pretty decent. A bit flat but nice carmel/malt tones with a copper appearance. Nothing that jumps out to say "wow" but quality is evident. Not sure if this is the same as the Hop Devil Ale which is also on BeerAdvocate, but seemingly gets much better reviews. Hmmmmm....

Paid $1 per bottle on clearance at my local shop.

A: Dark amber to copper.
S: Citrusy, grapefruit and orange. Hints of pine.
T: Citrusy and hoppy, but not overly so on either. Hints of malt.
F: Smooth with a very citrusy, smooth aftertaste, not bitter at all.
O: A really easy-drinking IPA that goes down well on a warm afternoon. A steal for the price.
