Had it on tap at the local world of beer. A pleasant surprise. Reminds me of a nice English bitter. Beautiful thick foamy head and nice lacing. Great hop and malt balance, toast and bread, some pine hints I the flavor.

The nitro tends to mask the unique flavors of the beer. It appears that nitro adds creaminess to the palette at the expense of taste. Too bad because I really wanted it to be great, but in the end it was just like the last episode of Seinfeld. Dissapointing.

had one of these the other night at a favorite watering hole. Have always enjoyed the regular Hop Devil in bottles or draft. The Nitro blows them both away in my opinion. I love the nitro effect and the smoother taste. This one stood out to me as something truly special. You'll tend not to get as much bite in the beer with Nitro and it does make it easier to have a few. Go grab one if you see it!

Enjoyed at Birrotecca in Baltimore. Had never tasted a nitro IPA until tonight; eminently smooth (as expected) and seemingly maltier than if carbonated with CO2. Fantastic finish.
