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.

Quite dark for a pale, but very good. This can is aged a bit so the hops may have died down which is making it more agreeable for me personally. The hops do become more prevalent as the glass warms up. Very foamy head which gives way to a nice creamy mouthfeel. Nice balance.

Very dark and malty for a pale ale, almost has a hoppy brown feel. i find that the malt over powered the hops, interesting brew but not for me.

This beer reminds me of a tamer version of Pit Caribou’s American Brown Ale (which itself is a slightly tamer version of the RastafaYan from Noire et Blanche). It pours awful purdy, though I don’t know why it’s called a pale ale; it could pass for a porter, in a dark bar. Nose is pine and floral hops with some roasted notes in the background. Taste is caramel, coffee, roasted grain, a hint of liquorice, with nice floral and grapefruit hop nots, ending in a dry pine and bitter coffee finish. There’s something about this beer’s flavour profile that I really, really enjoy, however I will say both the hop and malt profile are a touch understated. This beer has a lot of great stuff going on, but none of it will knock your socks off. Still, I keep going back to it again and again - and at half the price of PC’s ABA, it’s definitely more than half the beer, in terms of quality.

In short: a harsh dark ale.
Pours dark mahogany copper ??? with frothy off white head. Long head retention, some nice lacing. Maty, caramel, roasty and some alcoholic aromas. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is unbalanced, high alcohols in there, warming mouthfeel, roasty, caramel. Not at its prime.

Pours a deep copper, almost black with a large off white head. Aroma notes include rich toasted malts, liquorice, and spice. Tasting notes include caramels, and toffee malts. Not as malty as better APA’s, but not bad. Palate is medium, and some bitterness lingers. Not bad!

Apparence: D?une couleur ambrée, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une durée moyenne. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble moyennement présente. Arômes: Au nez, exclusivement des notes de houblon. Saveurs: Au goût, c’est le malt en premier lieu et rapidement remplacer par l’amertume herbacée du houblon. Pas d’une longue incroyable et principalement aucune effervescence. Fiche technique Style: American Pale Ale Format: 473 ml Taux d?alcool: 6%

473ml can from an LCBO in Toronto, ON. A mahogany brown pour with a billowing tan head - not what I was expecting - it says Pale Ale on the tin; a pleasantly hoppy aroma though with lots of pine; and a crisp fresh woody taste of a sweet, rather thin, malty body; and leaving a moreish bitter finish and a bitter chocolate aftertaste. The "Black IPA" category probably didn’t exist when this beer was created, but it would fit well there.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Canette de 473 ml achetée à la LCBO de Hawkesbury, inclue dans le "Discovery pack #5, summer 2010". Dégustée le 12 août 2010 (lager glass). Bière limpide couleur "thé foncé" acajou. Mousse assez lorsque versée, col épais et compact, beige crème, persistant. Très peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur marquée de berries, de noisettes grillées. Assez forte, un peu sucrée, très amère. Goût de caramel brûlé, de malt grillé. Alcool ressort un peu mais pas trop, assez sèche en finale. A du goût, du caractère. Assez corsée (peut-être même un peu trop). Fait plutôt bière d’hiver (ou d’automne) que d’été. N’a pas le style d’une APA traditionnelle.
