Beer Review: Victory Hop Devil IPA

In American IPA, Reviews on September 25, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Another beer you can’t get in Louisiana unfortunately, as it is one of my favorites. Here’s my review:

Pours a dark copper with some orange/amber highlights with a full khaki head.

Sweet caramel malt in the nose with some bright hop fruitiness and pine.  Apricot, pineapple, mango and earthy hops are most noticeable.

The caramel sweet transfers from the nose and into the flavor with bready malt upfront which then transforms to a moderately piney and floral hop that fades into a bitter and lasting, dry finish.

Nice bitter hop and sweet malt flavors gives a nice even balance and makes for a tasty IPA.

I suggest some grilled chicken or salmon to go with Hop Devil.  Spicy Pad Thai would be a nice match as well.

Style: American IPA

ABV: 6.7%
