VICTORY BREWING CO. HOPDEVIL IPA

Victory Brewing Co. HopDevil IPA. “Having trained in Germany, we appreciate the artistic freedom we have here in the U.S.” A slight on the Reinheitsgebot? I don’t know, but they do claim to use only whole hop flowers, rather than pellets.

Being unsure of the best serving temperature, I poured straight from the fridge and struggled to detect any hops in the aroma. I let it sit for five minutes and while malt still dominated in the aroma the taste was all resinous hops. Lovely, bitter, piny resinous hops, and yet it had a full malty mouthfeel  texture.

Another excellent IPA from across the Pacific, even if it is East Coast, Pennsylvania.

 

8/10
