Name – HopDevil
Country – United States
Type – American IPA
Appearance – Poured a clear darker red color with a good sized white head that laced the glass quite a bit.
Smell – Floral hops and some spices. There is a bit of a malty smell to it as well.
Taste – Great balance of floral hops and sweet, caramel like malts.
The third of my initial pick up of Victory brews is HopDevil. I went with this over the Hop Wallop at first to get an idea of what the normal IPA is like before going to the DIPA. This was a really well balanced IPA with good hops and a very nice malt backing to it. I know some people don’t like IPAs that the malts take a back seat in so this one should make those people happy. So after three of Victory’s fine brews I can say I am definitely a fan and look forward to having more in the future. Maybe even visit the brewery when I am visiting in PA in December.
Overall Grade – B
