Wood Devil American Double IPA by 603 Brewery

Share This Review

Wood Devil is an American Double IPA brewed by 603 Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.

Appearance

Pours a cloudy marigold with a tall stack of dense, off-white foam that recedes slowly. Small patches of residue gather at the collar of the glass.

Aroma

Aroma is bright and hoppy with a sweet scent of tropical fruit and pine.

Flavor

Palate rides the other direction with biting citrus flavors of grapefruit and lemon; ramping towards a grassy, dank finish. A taste of pepper and sage linger on the tongue. A high ABV of 9.2% asserts itself in the back end with a warming sensation of alcohol.

Mouthfeel

The feel is pretty smooth with a medium body and less-than-moderate carbonation.

Overall

The Wood Devil Double IPA does have some nice qualities, and at 101 IBUs, it does bring a hefty hoppy bite; however, that bitterness comes off a bit medicinal on the back end and its heavy-handed use of booze burns the back of the throat.

About the American Double IPA

Also known as an Imperial IPA, the American Double IPA is a stronger and higher hopped version of the American IPA. The style originated in the 1990s when craft breweries wanted to provide a more intense offering to hopheads. The DIPA has more hop bitterness than Strong Ales and Barleywines but has less alcohol.
