DRAFT REVIEW: Devil's Ale
Brilliantly clear, this copper-hued brew wears a tight, bubbly white head and unleashes a wildly rich hop aroma: Fragrant floral scents flutter around dank, piney notes for a fresh, perfumelike bouquet. Toasted malts sweep over the tongue before a flash of zesty orange jumps in mid-sip, then flowery, piney hops emerge and drift over the tongue alongside the malts into the finish. Devil’s Ale’s strong malt backbone rides through the swallow, giving the hefty hop bitterness a durable foundation to dig into. In the end, this beer leaves the mouth pleasantly dry with enduring hop notes floating in the mouth.
