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.

fhoublon (41) - 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.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2014
0.47 l can, thanks Sampo! Dark reddish brown color. Aromas of lemon, herbal tangerine, onion, pine, chocolate and nuts. Smooth bitter, chocolatey and nutty flavor with peppery, oniony and citrusy hops. Smooth palate. Fairly good combination of dark malts and citrusy & piney hops. Hop character is slightly too piney and oniony for my taste, still a good beer.

473 mL can. Pours a dark chocolate with nice lacing and a modest head that disappears quickly. Lost of toastedness on the nose and palate. Chocolatey! Nice long smooth toasted finish. Really well done. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shaynsawchuk (360) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
473 mL can. Pours medium brown with a thick lacy white cap. Plenty of dank, resinous hop aroma, medium caramel malts, subtle roast. Pine, toffee. Moderate plus body with a long palate coating mouth feel. Average carbonation. Caramel sweetness well offset by hop bittering. Delicious American Brown.

olio (5267) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
473 ml can.
Pours dark clear copper color with a large head. Aroma of pine needles, citric fruits, grape fruits also, caramel malts, even some faint licorice notes on the background. Quite Cascadian Dark like aroma. Flavor of sweetish fruits, caramel, some sweetish malts, resinous hops and grass. Strong carbonation, lingering harsh bitter palate. Quite nice aroma, and not too bad flavor either, very nice and interesting.

lusikka (5338) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
473 ml can. Pours a dark brown colour with a large, thick, foamy head. Aroma of toasted malts, perfume and grapefruit. Flavour of toasted malts, tangy citrusy bitterness, some baking powder, grapefruit and grass. Medium bodied, chewy mouthfeel and a bitter dry finish. Almost like a Black IPA, sort of.
