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.

473ml can. Pours a clear copper with a beige head. Aroma is heavy with juniper and pine, with some biscuit, floral notes, caramel, and wood. Taste is citrus hops up front followed by sweet malt, caramel, with woody grapefruit finish. Overall, a pretty decent offering and one I’ll buy again.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Sampled from a 473 ml can this beer poured a dark brown color with tan highlights and a huge creamy beige head that lingered forever and left excellent lacing. The aroma was gritty floral and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter, toasty, malty and had a moderate floral hop presence. Medium length hoppy finish. Medium body. Ok.

Well hopped. Hint of caramelized malt. Taste of nuts. Looks like a brown ipa.

Pours a very deep amber with a medium off-white head. Aromas of caramel malt and light hops. Tastes quite malty with a light bitter finish. Some alcohol in the finish as well. Medium bodied.

Magnifique bière à la teinte mi-ambrée, mi-rubis surmontée d’un fier collet de mousse blanc cassé dessinant de jolies dentelles sur les parois du verre. Le nez est un habile mélange de houblons et de noisettes torréfiées. Nez affirmé et chaleureux. En bouche, c’est plutôt mince par contre. Le liquide manque de corps. C’est aqueux et houblonné. On aurait souhaité une plus grande densité. Le nez par ailleurs nous annonçait un malt dominant qui est en fait très timide, à l’instar du houblon qui n’ajoute rien de plus qu’une légère amertume bien quelconque. Je n’aime pas employer cette expression, mais cette bière est un gros pétard mouillé: magnifique, olfactive, mais ça s’arrête à peu près là.

473ml can. Dark mahogany with a frothy off-white head. Flavors are toasted / roasted cereals, citrus, resinous hops, grass and toffee with earthy and nutty notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

Poured from 473mL can. Mahogany brown with off white beige head. Citrus and grassy hops with subtle apple. Quite a dry finish.

Not evenly remotely "pale" this one is a deep ruby red in the light, with a thin ever so slightly off white head. The aromas are a nice balance of malts and hops, with some plums in the mix. Very similar tastes. A nice bitter finish on the swallow. Overall, this is far from the best beer from Great Lakes, but as an available all year beer, reach for this before any macros.

Huge off-white tan foamy head. Hazy brown body with hints of amber. Orange zest, underripe oranges, grapefruit zest, fresh cut grass aroma. Very subtle toffee on the nose as well. Palate quite bitter with more malt flavors on the tongue compared to the nose. Some bakers chocolate is very softly present, however this is very hop based for aroma. Dry finish. Medium to elevated alcohol. Pronounced bitterness with a long finish. Crazy & impressive to have a beer so heavily hopped on the nose and seem balanced (relatively) with malt characteristics. Could see this being a contender the mad tom for popularity among hop-heads in the area. Pleasure to taste.

Boisson très foncée, brune acajou opaque à la lumière, avec une consistance mi-épaisse, un film de mousse, et un nez passablement houblonné mais de façon charmante. Bouche sucrée, maltée mais les houblons ne sont pas en reste. L’amertume est cependant limitée. Apparence déconcertante, sinon impressionnante, mais les saveurs sont non seulement justes pour le style, elles sont également plus agréables que celles de la plupart de ses concurrentes. Belle réussite.

Ummmmmm......Pale Ale? I don’t think I need to reread the definition of pale to understand that this ain’t pale. That being said, I have never been one for convention and this beer certainly isn’t either. It’s gorgeous in all of its dark, devilish glory, a ruby brown with a wonderful beige head. The smell is fantastic! Along with citrus, floral, mildly piney hops and caramel there are exciting notes of plums, vanilla, raisins, coffee and nuts. The taste is the same but also brings with it some light, smooth roasted malt flavour. Intensely complex yet remarkably drinkable, a medium body with mid-soft carbonation and a wee bit of oiliness. My new favourite remarkable "regular" beer. Heaven be damned.
