A "wild" spin on a popular beer
Victory Brewing put a "wild" spin on their popular Hop Devil IPA by fermenting a batch with 100% Brettanomyces yeast. The result is a mixture of the traditional pine and citrus flavours of an IPA with sour and tart flavours from the Brett. These are two relatively strong flavour profiles that were combined and I found there was sometimes too much competition among the flavours for my attention. It would be interesting to see how this beer changes with age though. Certainly worth trying and I'd probably pick it up again sometime.
