Devil Anse IPADevil Anse IPA
Notes: The Devil Anse IPA is a medium bodied American style India Pale Ale. Featuring a blend of Australian and Pacific Northwest hops; lending to a balanced bitterness of citrus and tropical fruit characteristics. The complex hop flavors are balanced by a blend of malts; including American 2-Row, American Pilsner, and British floor malted barley. At 6.9% abv and 65 IBU’s, no feuding is necessary when you enjoy this refreshingly smooth IPA.

HOPS: Amarillo, Galazy, Simcoe
MALTS: American 2-Row, American Pilsner, British Crystal Malt

Had on tap while visiting WV. While I was not expecting much, this really surprised me. Great juicy hop flavor with a slight bitterness at the end, along with a nice malt backbone which balances well with the hop flavors. Very good!

This is an exceptional beer brewed in the little ol Greenbrier Valley in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I've had it a few times on draft in the past few years but this last time I really got a NE haze with exceptional citrus/hop-forward taste. Very impressed!!

Not much to look when it was set in front of me pale golden yellow almost like a macro lager. I wasn’t expecting much but I was wrong. A really good IPA outside of the citrus realm. Hoppy, earthy and a really good crisp clean finish. Great beer.

A bushy, white, one inch foam slowly morphs to a creamy veil. A dense coating of lace is deposited on a PBGC pint glass wrapped in threads of glass. The beer is opalescent, orange-gold (SRM4-6). Tiny bubbles are everywhere, all racing to the top.

Pineapple opens the aroma, and yields to grapefruit. Later, orange pith and pine form a solid background. Warmth oddly diminishes the character.

This IPA is more bitter than I had expected, which may be in part due to the number of NEIPAs I have enjoyed lately. Orange flavors work well with the pineapple. Grapefruit and pine are also evident, though all rather pithy. Some cracker malt is also present just before a long, drawn-out finish that returns bitterness to the forefront.

The body is full, with a density similar to pear nectar. It is almost dense. The texture is soft and fluffy, perhaps due to the background of fine carbonation. Alcohol is noticeable, yet well-controlled -- about as expected.

This is a good American IPA and well-suited for relaxing with or without casual conversation. I enjoyed this one on a bitter cold and snowy night after a long drive home.

Crisp. Hoppy with very low notes of malt. Delicious.

Appearance: A bubble show builds the head to two fingers, squatting atop the clear light amber liquid; decent retention with a splattering of lace

Smell: Pine and sulfur hop tones mingling with bread and caramel

Taste: The piney hops stake their claim early and often here, with the bread and caramel malt flavors holding their own, underneath; the bitterness from the sulfur lingers, however, well into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: An old school IPA with a bit too much sulfur in the finish

Thanks, Treyliff, for the opportunity

12oz can into a Teku

Look: Pours a clear light copper/amber with a big, soapy off-white head that reduces to a thin ring but leaves plenty of sticky lacing down the glass.
Smell: Mostly sweet caramel malt/toasted bread upfront. Lighter notes of grapefruit, orange, citrus peel, mango, and pineapple balanced out by a healthy dose of bitter pine/earth/resin.
Taste: Rather light at first, mostly toasty caramel malt... then earthy, bitter, citrusy, resiny, hops come roaring in.
Feel: A sticky medium bodied brew with a dry finish. Small bubbles and light carbonation.
Overall: Delicious if you like your IPAs to showcase a strong earthy bitterness while still remaining well balanced and incredibly drinkable.
