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

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 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.

Boisson trs fonce, brune acajou opaque la lumire, avec une consistance mi-paisse, un film de mousse, et un nez passablement houblonn mais de faon charmante. Bouche sucre, malte mais les houblons ne sont pas en reste. Lamertume est cependant limite. Apparence dconcertante, sinon impressionnante, mais les saveurs sont non seulement justes pour le style, elles sont galement plus agrables que celles de la plupart de ses concurrentes. Belle russite.

Ummmmmm......Pale Ale? I dont think I need to reread the definition of pale to understand that this aint pale. That being said, I have never been one for convention and this beer certainly isnt either. Its 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.

Fresh can at Porterhouse Dublin (only 6 weeks old). Really deep copper pour, almost like a brown ale, dirty white head. Good pine, caramel, wood, and grapefruit pith on the nose. Big pine resin and thick caramalt upon tasting, rough pine and grapefruit bitterness, some woody notes and earthier spices in there. Bitter finish, bit abrasive. Medium body; if you like malt forward pale ales this could be a top one for you. Not to my taste, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Can. Pours clear hazel, large puffy tan head, dissipates slowly, nice clumpy lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, grapefruit, roasty malts, bread, perhaps a note of coffee. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, pine, grapefruit, toasted bread, a note of toffee. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice brown IPA.

Pour is dark amber with a thick off white head. Nose is fruity with apricot and grapefruit. Good amount of malt sweetness. Taste is lots of malts that leave a hint of nutty chocolate and caramel in the mouth. Medium long lasting resinous hop bitterness. Some grapefruit notes too. Tasty pale ale!

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 Caribous American Brown Ale (which itself is a slightly tamer version of the RastafaYan from Noire et Blanche). It pours awful purdy, though I dont know why its 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. Theres something about this beers 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 PCs ABA, its definitely more than half the beer, in terms of quality.

473ml can from El Lpulo Feroz, Oviedo. @home 05-07-2014.
BBD: Oct 13.
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.
