Victory Hop Devil (6.7%)

Yet another American brewer I’ve been wanting to try for some time.
Through reading other people’s reviews I’d been warned about just how powerfully hopped this little bottle is but nothing could prepare me.
Hop Devil is a tremendous beer.
There’s that American craft pine resin flavour, deep and delicious that I’ve yet to taste in an English beer. That’s not a bad thing, not a criticism of English beer, it’s simply the thing that really differentiates American beers from English for me.
The thing that would be the giveaway in a blind taste test between the two.
You get enormous splashes of thick maple syrup, and lovely woody campfire roasted chestnuts.
Then there’s the hops.
Gargantuan and (almost) overpowering.
The hops are an explosion of delicious dry, crunchy leaves.
They suck all the moisture from your entire head, leaving your face tight and prune-like.
Astounding beer.
Hop Devil is a demon.
I want more.
