COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as a salute to our brothers at Spiteful Brewing, Deal With the Devil is a beer that comes with a price: our souls. After securing a box of foolproof, sought after hops, we came up with a juicy pale ale that’s low in bitterness and huge in tropical flavors. This beer is unfiltered. Sediment may form.

650ml bottle from Mikkeller Webshop

BBE 01/01/2015 - Pours reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of ripe fruits, caramel, grassy hops, citrus and juicy notes. Taste is malty, caramely and juicy with some ripe fruity notes, grass and citrus. Finish crisp, hoppy and caramely with hints of licorice(!), tropical fruits and grass. Quite juicy and crisp DIPA. Not super fresh, but still pretty good.

65 cl bottle @ tiong, BBE 01.01.2015
Aroma is sweet with tropical fruits and pineapples. Also some grapefruit and caramel. Flavour has somewhat aggressive hops, grapefruit, some caramel and gooseberry bush. Finishes with lingering hops with herbs and grapefruit. Also some gluey tones after some sips. Still, well bodied and balanced DIPA, almost too sweet though.

Pours hazy amber color with small head. Resinous hops and caramel on the nose, malts, sweetish fruits and pine needles. Malty and resinous flavor, hops, orange, grapefruits and faint wooden notes. Some licorice on the aftertaste. A tad malty and sweet but very nice hop profile. Tasty.

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber golden colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet caramel, nettles, gooseberry bush and citrus. Heavy flavour of sweet caramel, grapefruity hops, grass, some herbal notes and biscuit. Alcohol warms a bit. Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Nice chewy and tangy citrus finish. Great.

Idiosynkrasie (3853) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
650ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey dark golden to amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, off-white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, some resin with sweaty almond touch. Taste is initially moderately sweet caramel malty, later more and more bitter hoppy, notes of grapefruit and orange, mandarine, some almond; even more bitter, biting, hoppy finish, super soft palate.

SlackerMads (1623) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle, best before 2015-1-1. Hazy orange with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Grapefruit, alcohol, light white cheese, caramel, pine, wood. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and medium/heavy bitter. Long bitter finish with some leafy astringency. Probably suffers from not being super fresh, yet I can’t bring myself to believe this was ever outstanding. Forgettable.
