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.
