In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer that is one of Victory Brewery’s everyday beers. It is their Hop Devil India Pale Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this East Coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Victory Brewery. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a clear copper color without a head on this IPA. The aroma has a heavy citrus notes. The taste has a citrus notes with a dry bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer 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.

In the end, I have always been a fan of this brew and craft brewery. I was looking at my blog and I was wondering why I never posted a review on this beer. They picked a few good hops. They have a great and well build malty backbone. Could you say it is like every other IPA on a market? You could be right. This beer is better than most IPA. I like it and I will buy more of this beer. It is drinkable and I just wished it was in a 12pk bottles. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
