Victory Hop Devil Ale

Here I have a nice glass of Hop Devil, an IPA from Victory Brewing Company out of Downingtown, PA. Though I have only been able to sample a few, Victory has yet to disappoint me with the creative spin they put on their impressive line up of craft brews. This ale is a rather light red hue that has no sediment but is very opaque, head is about an inch and off white in color. Aroma is full of hops, grapefruit and some bitterness as well as a nice malt backbone. The flavor is no surprise, bitter hops are up front accompanied by more floral hop flavors with a nice hint of malty sweetness rounding off the flavor of this beer. The 6.7% ABV of this beer is no real surprise but is nicely masked by the robust hop flavors in this brew. Mouthfeel is average for an IPA and the body is light as well. Definitely a beer I could drink a lot of, luckily I have a few more in the fridge. As the name suggests this is certainly not the drink for those afraid of a hop filled brew but a grand choice for us hopheads. Give it a shot and ride your bike.

  1. Like it, I just downed a six pack of Victory’s Hop Wallop this weekend, damn.. review coming soon.

  2. Ah yes, the Hop Wallop, another wonderful ale from Victory. In fact when I went to the store and picked up this 6-pack of Hop Devil I was actually hopping to find some Hop Wallop to review but alas they were out of stock, only a few single bottles were available at Henn Lake. Oh well I’ll just have to find some somewhere else soon 🙂
