Hop Devil Ale
Mouthfeel: Thicker than usual. Carbonation is at a bare minimum, very fine and micro bubbled (I've experienced this once before but with a Flat six pack from Victory with their Hefeweisen). Nevertheless this perfectly complements a nice mellow flavor and texture. Robust body that is slightly cloying to the cheek.
Overall Impression: A spectacular ale. Well worth the $10 for it. The complexity and overall delectability of the biscuit/caramel sweetness finished off with a rich dosage of hops make for an extremely complex beer worth every drop. A grapefruit aftertaste to finish it off goes far if you like the sweet but dessert on the bitter. If you see it, buy it. You won't be discouraged!
