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!

Whole Foods, P st, DC 4-pack ($14): Ok, aside of the fact that this four pack of pounders was rather ridiculously overpriced, this is a good beer. In fact, it reminds me a lot of Heady Topper. The pours is quite nice: large white head with a nice copper body. Aroma is very floral, but there is also some fruitiness, and not too much malt. Taste actually has a malt backbone appear, which gives this beer a nice mild sweetness. There is a good amount of bitterness in here, but this is not so brutal as to impede drinking. Excellent for sure.

Slightly hazy orange pour. Big rocky head with tons of lacing. Massive crown. Looks quite nice in the glass. Since it was mentioned to me, all I can smell is onion. Sweet candy malt mixing with hop resin and stone fruit. Does have that sharp onion character, accentuated by te bitterness, but is more than just that. Peach, orange, apricot, strawberry, grapefruit, watermelon. Has some of that same soapy character I like in Dales Pale. It gives the beer real texture and dimension. Bitterness is serious, but really grows out of the finish. Up front is nothing but sweetness and hop flavor. Pretty stern malt backbone, but with even bigger hops on top of it. Not a west coast IPA, really it’s own thing. Really good, though.

Can from Premier. Super clear light amber body, white head. Nose is big dank, minty, juicy hops. Pine and overripe mango. Flavor is that overripe fruit, dank & mint with a solid malt/caramel backbone. Some nice mingling of sweetness & bitterness for a minute but then bitterness becomes a bit too dominant for me. Nice lingering pineyness.

Light amber color with a med bone head. Citrus hop aroma of grapefruit and apricot. Verry hoppy with better balance. Crisp finish with little aftertaste

Much better than the regular PA and alot less sticky than some of their other heavy hopped beers, this was enjoyable and complex. Would love to find it in a can as well.

Draft. Amber pour with tan head. Slight malt sweetness and grassy, pine and herbal hop tones. Spiciness hits on the finish.

Thanks to yourefragile for sharing this one. Served in a SAVOR glass. Pours a golden-amber color with a good, fluffy white head and some lacing on the way down. The nose carries a really nice burst of pine, citrus, and tropical hops mixed with a touch of caramel malt in the background. The flavor unfortunately falls back quite a bit from there with some semi-harsh bitterness, a touch of alcohol, and too much malt interfering with the hops. Body is medium with good carbonation and a fairly-heavy bitterness, which is slightly offset by some alcohol. The nose was really nice, but the rest of the beer was "just" pretty good.

Part of a six IPA tasting session. <br \> Canned on 3/20/12. 4 pack. <br \> Poured from a 16 oz can into a snifter. <br \> <br \> A: Pours a clear amber/red with a one finger white head. <br \> S: Dank [Columbus] hops fill up the glass and the surrounding area, leaving little room for much else. <br \> T: Grapefruit and piney hops begin the assault, followed by sweet caramel and a lingering bitterness. <br \> M: Sticky, medium-bodied, and moderately carbonated. <br \> O: This is definitely targeted at hopheads, but the lingering bitterness is complimented well by the malt backbone that didn’t show itself in the aroma, making it somewhat drinkable.

Can:   Pale copper, fiery, clear, moderate to thin frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Super strong piney and pithy nose.   No question this is an IPA.   Wished it were a bit more citrusy and sweet, but it will do.   Smooth hoppiness up front, pithy, citrus zest, but without too much sweetness.   This is not a malt sided IPA, but instead a moderately sweet hoppy and clean example of the style.   Very clean, very piney and resiny without much flaw.   I only wished it were a touch sweeter.   Malt base is decent, hops are there, certainly bitter, but without being astringent.   Has all the hop flavor to represent the style very well, but without any astrigent bitterness.   Deviant it may be, but delicious it certainly is.
