Brewer Description: (from bottle) The mythical HopDevil resides in the lore of farmers. Our HopDevil is the real deal. Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious. He’s the product of distinctive American hops and meticulous craftsmanship. Arising from the heady wilds of our hopback and gently tamed with time, this Devil makes a great companion.

Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with an enjoy by date of 14th January 2016, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear copper orange colour with an off white one finger head that dissipated quickly but left nice stringy lacing.
Aroma: Citrus orange and lemon, pine with hints of tropical fruits and light caramel malt.
Taste: Grapefruit and pine bitterness with quite a strong malt sweetness backbone. The finish is a nice lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: A nice IPA with good bitterness but maybe slightly too much malt sweetness.
