4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A 22 fl oz bomber with no best by or bottled on date. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a hazy deep amber orange colour with a one finger cream coloured head with decent retention and nice spotty lacing. Aromas are strong citrus notes with orange and grapefruit rind combined with lots of pine and caramel sweetness. Tastes of orange, approaching candy orange, with a good amount of grapefruit zest, pine and caramel sweetness. Just over medium bodied with moderate carbonation. For some reason, I had it in my head that this was going to be like pseudoSue or Zombie Dust, but this was completely different and not in a bad way. Deal With The Devil was still a great pale ale with a good balance between citrus fruit and malt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a medium offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is really boozy but there is stil some good tropical fruits in there. Taste is strangely sweet and caramel-like with more fruits and alcohol. Moderately bitter. Damn that alcohol and that out of place burnt caramel. Body is sticky and syrupy. Way too boozy. Meh.

fresh bottle. pours amber with off white head. big citra aroma, plenty of green onion to make it unpleasant. flavor is very sweet and brash, oniony, tropical, sweet caramel. full bodied. reminds me of an old school double ipa but with new hops. not sure why this gets rated well, i guess it’s because it’s a big beer with citra hops? meh.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This stuff is barely okay. Kind of a too sweet dank IIPA. *yawn* It’s a bit syrupy, earthy and tough to drink. I cannot for the life of me figure out why anyone cares about this brewery.
