Victory Brewing Company - Downingtown
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
It’s arguable that our menacingly delicious HopDevil has always been wild. With bold German malts and whole flower American hops, this India Pale Ale is anything but prim. But add a touch of brettanomyces, the unruly beast responsible for the sharp tang and deep funk found in many Belgian ales, and our WildDevil emerges completely untamed. Floral, aromatic hops still leap from this amber ale, as a host of new fermentation flavor kicks up notes of citrus and pine. Pour yourself a glass today—if you dare.

A review from someone who dislikes hop devil, dirtwolf, and ranch.

Smells more funky than hoppy, but the latter are still there, enough that Mrs. Nixon will have none of it. Starts off very herbal, bordering on spiced beer. The funkiness is there too and the sweetness I get from a lot of victory IPAs isn't. As it warms up, the herbal notes yield to pine, lemon, and cherry. Nice and smooth throughout, a solid beer.
