Fresh keg (barkeep says two weeks old) into a shaker. If you like east coast India Pale Ales, I am thinking you might enjoy this. Clean, crisp water profile (I know, weird right? that I can pick out water in an IPA, but the minerality is pronounced on this one), malts up front, malts on the middle, malts in the back. Did I mention malts? Should stop you West Coast IPA fans in your tracks. It would have me if reviews had mentioned it.

Very little in the way of hop aroma, with nice astringency running throughout, that very quickly fades in the finish. You know, like your typical E Coast IPA.

Granted this is a two month old can so still fresh but I feel the hops have died a bit. The smell is the highlight of this beer though, but in general it is an average IPA. I am not that impressed but maybe I got a can that had the hops die off.

Not bad, but not knocking my socks off either.
I got a six pack of this in Morgantown WV when I was out there with my kid looking at WVU.
The canning date on the bottom was 6/21/16. I bought it in early August, and I'm tasting and reviewing it in mid September.
Nice cloudy IPA, not a strong smell, even from my tulip glass.
Plenty of hoppy bitterness in the taste, but it's not a very pleasant or complex flavor. I drank the first five of these weeks ago, and they weren't much different earlier. It's a decent IPA, and if I'm in WV again, and was in an IPA mood, I'd order one. A solid offering.

A: The beer is very hazy amber yellow in color. It poured with a two finger high off white head that took a very long time to die down, but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops—grapefruit seems to stand out in particular—are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste has flavors of floral and grapefruit hops along with stronger notes of caramel and toasted malts. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer has a good balance between the malts and hops—it's not as "juicy" as some of the newer IPAs out there.

12 Oz can with fantastic artwork. A real beauty in terms of design. Poured into a pint glass.

Devil Anse was hyped through to the moon by the craft beer crowd in my area. Especially those who reside in WV. While I'm definitely seeing the best ipa ever brewed and distributed from WV I'm not buying this over other selections. It was much better on tap however. Nice flavor and a fairly good aroma. Body is pretty good as well. Definitely worth the try. Greenbrier Valley are attempting what no other WV brewery has even tried and it seems they're on track. That's nice to see and while Devil Anse isn't mind blowing as described by fellow local beer enthusiasts, it's still a nice offering.

16oz draft in a nonic pint

It is a a cloudy yellow-gold color with a moderate white head.

Aroma is not very strong, but it smells like orange, and passion fruit with a decent amount of sweet malts.

A lot of juicy flavor. Orange/tangerine, a Starburst like pink candy/passion fruit, peach, and some floral/piney hops. Some bitterness creeps in late. Solid malt base that adds some body.

This is a nice ipa that has a bit of an east coast body without the yeast.

poured from a can into a pint glass. date on bottom of can was 5/9/16, which judging from other reviews of this brewery, i take to be the canned date. so less that 3 weeks old. bought from Grapes and Grains, Shepherdstown, WV, a nice little town.

virtually nothing on the nose, neither good nor bad.

This is a tasty brew. nicely balanced between the malt and hops. is only mildly bitter with a solid sweet malt background.

feel is a solid medium, slightly more bitter on the finish.

my first beer from the state of WV. grabbed a six pack, so more to enjoy over the next few weeks.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the "Irish Pub" in Lewisburg, WV. This beer is a cloudy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is full of fruit, hops and bread. The flavor is also really good, it has a citrus and hop flavor. Overall, a very nice beer that everyone should try if you can find it.
