This beer is intended to be a sensory assault for hop lovers. At 8.0% ABV, four hop additions during the brew process, and a final wallop of excessive Columbus dry-hopping, this beer is meant to say one thing: MORE HOPS! Perfect for these cool winter nights, The Deviant is a returning favorite from the little brewery in Lyons, Colorado that started the Canned Revolution!

Damn...this is a great beer! Aroma crossed the eyes with bitter grapefruit, orange peel, evergreen, and ganja. Dark copper/24 karat pour that creates a 1/2 inch tightly packed ivory head. Like chewing on a hop cone...leafy, green, bright citrus, and marijuana. Light honey/caramel backbone. Amazingly sticky mouthfeel...this one sticks around with you.

On tap at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Murky haze but nearly clear. Dusty dark orange color. Small head that quickly settled to a thin creamy film with excellent lacing. Heavy hops aroma of citrus and pine. Mix of tangerine and grapefruit. Bitter, hoppy flavor of grapefruit, orange, pine and resin. Some malt flavor creeps through when the tart hops give it a chance. Medium full creamy mouthfeel with significant carbonation. Nothing subtle about this hop bomb. Not for everyone or everyday, but I'm loving it today. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy/creamy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of tomato-cream sauce, plastic bags, electrical fire, dried mango, vegetables (squash and cabbage). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium to full body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Iím stunned. Stunned, I tell you. There are some seriously oddball aromas in this thing. The creamy tomato sauce is most prominent, but Iím honestly not making up the other stuff. Really bizarro land. Quite dirty aftertaste as well, which isnít really a surprise based on the aroma. Looks nice, though, and has a good mouthfeel. Iím not a hophead, but I usually understand why folks like hop bombs. This is a completely different animal. Maybe a fluke can, or maybe Iím just overly sensitive to some of these off notes (I know I am hypersensitive to ammonia, for one). Either way, this was truly unpleasant.

on tap @ Rackhouse. Pours a cloudy bright orange with small white fluffy head. Very dank hop nose full of citrus, cannabis. Big hop taste as well, lots of floral/citrus flavor, a little one dimensional but still tasty. Big bitter finish.

The beer pours a clear, rusty amber color with a moderately full, white, pillowy, creamy head which settles to a creamy layer and leaves lots of drippy lace. The nose is nice with definite Columbus notes; earthy, resinous, some pine, some raw hops, light tangerine. The flavor is similar with a high, earthy, raw bitterness; other notes of tangerine, pine, lots of resins, and faint dry herbal. The palate is medium, lively, slightly drying, and oily. The finish is still bitter with resin and pine, slightly juicy with tangerine, and a dryness from some herbal and earth. A bit too much raw/green hops to appreciate the other hop complexities. The bitterness was nice and helped to make the beer more approachable. A nice well-built IPA with just minor flaws that keep it from being great.

Can. Pours a clear, orange-amber with a medium, fluffy, off-white head. Dank and resinous piney, fruity, lightly spicy aroma. If I am not mistaken, this uses delicious Summit hops, like Gubna. Flavor is sticky, resinous, super hoppy, and just a little bit sweet. No overly aggressive malt presence, letting the hops be the focus. Excellent!

Served from a 16 oz can from OTM. The appearance is a golden hue with a light brown shade. Nice white lacing head. The nose is pine, musty, and a bit dank. Great full hoppy resins in the flavor. Good amounts of pine with a lot of malt balance and kumquats.. Some cinnamon notes as well. Nice full bitterness without being over the top. Excellent brew.

Cask at Proof. Hazy deep amber pour with a soft white head. Nose is loaded with citric dank hops and somewhat of a dingy characteristic to it. Flavor is lots of citrusy resinous hops and a touch of maltiness to it. Kind of one dimensional. Iím following drowland and trying it from the can for a possible rerate.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 3/21/12. On cask at Proof in Tallahassee! Itís a double dry-hopped cask, word on the street is that it was cascade hops added to the cask. Hazy orange pour with a persistent khaki head that sticks and laces plenty. Big aroma hits strong - citrus, pot, earthiness, and a big dose of what reminds me very strongly of an old dishrag or sponge sitting on my sink. I thought maybe it was my glass, but a few sniffs on other glasses shows similar aspects. Maybe itís in the treatment? Sweet malty entry shows itself but then packs quite a bitter punch followed with plenty of citrus and straight up resinous hop bite like Iím chewing on pellets - itís almost too much. Iím curious to try this from the can. Rerate 5/17/12. 16oz can canned 3/30/12. Huge sweet caramel aroma with a touch of dank hops. Sweet caramel and hop aroma that reminds of sweet tea with a kick. Eh.

From can at House of 1000, courtesy of Craig. Huge hoppy apricot nose, hop oils, alcohol vapors. Medium sweetness. Golden clear with thin lacing head. Heavy body with medium carbonation. Juicy fresh hop flavor with tons of flavor, apricot and other floral notes. Big bitter finish and after with alcoholic warming. Very tasty IPA with big finish.
