Just got a case for my birthday, along with a victory sampler case which included 6 more hop devils...I love them. Very good beer.

Did not like victory's golden monkey though.

I agree. Quality beer with many nice qualities. I just tried one for the first time. It's not as aromatic as IPA's I usually get into like hopslam, 2 hearted. A very different type of hops and bitterness here.

hop devil one of my top 10. It actually would be a very malty beer if it wasn't for all the hops. Had a private brewery tour with a group of friends a few years ago... awesome time!!!

Golden Monkey is awesome in my opinion. But thats what makes beer so great. There is always something for everybody.

Personally, anything by Victory is worth picking up. Their Pils is one of the best I have had.

This is the beer that got me into IPA's, and craft beers in general. Although now I find it to not be hoppy enough for my palate :drunk:

I had HopDevil for the first time last week. Some good friends were in town from Philly and they found a sixer at the airport here locally. Glad I found this thread, I'm going to have to brew this now.

This is one of my favorites right now. Looking forward to trying some of the other beers in the victory lineup.
