With a name like HopDevil you imagine the beer being a hop bomb that will punch you in the face upon first sip, but it’s actually very well-balanced. It might be very hoppy to someone new to the genre but experienced IPA drinkers might also find it a little lacking. It has a nice copper color and is very smooth, but it doesn’t have that “draw you in” hoppy aroma that a lot of IPAs have. Don’t get me wrong, this is a very, very good beer and it consistently gets A/A- ratings on Beer Advocate. I drink my fair share of this beer and I will continue to do so but I’ve also had a few better IPAs, too. It’s an excellent beer, give it a try yourself.
