I've heard such amazing things about it for so long, and it did not disappoint. I picked it up at a beer shop in Manchester, VT. The guy working there told me they have a hard time keeping it on the shelves, and I can understand why. You know a beer isn't f***ing around when Victory Hop Devil tastes crisp and refreshing after it.

I have one of these in the fridge. Might be cracking it open tonight. It's one of my favorite beers.

A local Indian restaurant had a 1-night special: 20+ oz pour of OR for $2.50 or something ridiculous. Seems they do a different microbrew every Thursday night. God, I hate that I have to work Thursday nights.

i LOVE this beer. One bar i used to go to a lot had it on tap for awhile, i haven't had it in close to a year now. Last January i scored a 4-pack for $12 bucks in Florida while visting my g/f's parents. Such a great beer.

Hmm OR is a little intense on the palate for me usually. I think it tastes great but I don't usually reach for one. Although I love it with a bold cigar. It can really stand up to it.
