Description 

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.

Bold, spicy and Menacingly Delicious™, this American hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish provided by quality German malts.

This beer pours a beautiful brilliantly clear orange-amber with a big, fluffy, cream-colored head of small bubbles that persists and leaves some Belgian lacing. The aroma of fresh baked bread and bread crusts is just a bit grainy, with grassy and resinous tangerine notes and hints of tropical fruit. The flavor echoes the fairly substantial (for an American IPA) malt backbone with crackers, honey, and a bit of a nutty character. The finish is quite dry, although there is an offsetting honey note – with bitterness lingering in the back of your throat. With just above a medium body and a crisp and clean expression that invites you to drink more, there's also a bit of alcohol warmth. Very enjoyable and tasty, with the hops dominating the bittering, though a bit more subdued in the flavor and aroma. Enjoy this with a spicy Indian curry dish – or just by itself for a balanced and engaging IPA experience.
