The Devil Made Me Brew It! Brewed for 66.6 minutes with 666kg of malt and 6.6kg of hops, Devil’s Pale Ale is a robust ale weighing in at 6.6% alcohol (notice a theme yet?). Darker than traditional pale ales, Devil’s Pale Ale has an unmistakable hoppiness both in aroma and taste, balanced by a selection of 6 choice malts.

This is a very decent pale ale. Mahogany in appearance, thick creamy head. Smells of freshly cut grass and some earth. Tastes earthy as well, a little bit of citrusy zing, some metallic notes. Picked this up in Toronto in 2013.

473 ml can into a lager glass. Nothing traditionally pale about this, as it pours a very dark reddish-amber with a pillowy, lasting beige head and good amounts of lacing. Fruity nose with a bit of smokiness. Rich, caramel maltiness and a bit sticky on the palate. Pretty solid.

Can (473 ml). Extra from TheJester, thanks Andy! Dark amber (almost brown) with reddish reflects, medium mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, malt, caramel, light smoked notes and resinous presence. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with caramel, resinous, fruity notes, roasted presence and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Good American Pale Ale. Drinkable. Not to heavy. I liked it.

jksipa (276) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2013
Can from the LCBO. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head. Nose is nuts and spruce. Good upfront bitterness that is quickly taken over by an interesting mix of malts. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Decent but would like a longer finish.

tompete (206) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours a light brown with a fast disappearing beige head. Aroma of hops and malt balanced, toasty and sweet smelling. Flavour is almost like a porter. The crystal malts used are darker than the standard pale ale and lend some biscuit, light toffee and the hint of some roasty character. Nothing overpowering. Finish is balanced with a bit of a bitter hint, but not from hops. It is from the roasted malts, a bit like from a standard stout. Surprising and tasty, but definitely misslabeled as a American IPA. More like a porter.

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
[can] Tropical hops aroma: pineapple; and faint cardboard. Clear cola appearance under a lasting, light brown, lacy head. Dry and sour flavour that is bitter and with some paper. Faint tropical hops note. Astringent, highly carbonated, light body.
