COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

16 oz can, 10 days old. From the other room, my wife wondered aloud if someone was smoking weed. Easily the most pungent beer I’ve ever experienced. I didn’t want to pour it into my glass. Just wanted to smell it. Wish I had left it in the can. Taste was good, but not remarkable. Couldn’t detect anything akin to malt. Lots of alcohol. Hard to believe its only 8% ABV. Heavy hop resin like Gubna, but not as syrup-ish or offensive. Overall, an enjoyable IPA.

pours a pretty orange color. Smell coming out of the can is powerful and pleasing. Peppery and woodsy hop aroma. Initial taste is really good. Then the bitterness coats the palate then there is a bit of strong ale to the end. And a touch of cat pee. Overall quite nice but tastes stronger than 8%

32oz Growler @ Beverage World. Served at around 45F.

Pours very slightly hazy amber with a nice three finger off-white head that leaves some pretty rings of clumpy drippy lacing and holds a real nice cap.

Aroma is really dank, a lot of sticky weed, resinous hops, a lot of pine and citrus rind, some pineapple, and maybe some onions. There may be some caramel malt there too but is overshadowed by the hops. Excellent strength. Really nice, complex and potent aroma.

Flavor is a lot of resinous hops, pine and citrus rind, bready malt and caramel in the middle offering light sweetness, finishes with strong bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Pretty tasty but lacking a bit of the complexity and oomph found in the aroma.

Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied, sticky and oily with good carbonation.

Dale’s Evil Brother? Or probably more like Dale’s and Gubna’s love child. A serious hop assault, somewhere between an IPA and DIPA. Super dank and resinous. The aroma on this is just ridiculous...

ChainGangGuy (4423) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2012
11 ounce pour - $8.75 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.

Appearance: Served a clear, copper body with a teeny, tiny white ring.

Smell: Pushes big notes of bread and booze with less than ingratiating hop notes of resins, headache powder, and pith.

Taste: Pale malts dialed up towards a sugary breadiness. A drizzle of pine sap dosed with aspirin tablets and the pith of lemons and grapefruit. Moderate bitterness. Has an expectedly bitter finish with a bit more alcohol-soaked bread with continued resins and pith into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: Can I just have a Dale’s Pale instead? Oooh, or a Gordon?? If anybody wants the last couple ounces of this, then knock yourselves out.

Big citrus, lemon and pine. This is a bitter one! Tasty, my first time having it and the 16oz cans made it to Southern Cali. Great find and addition to the Oskar Blues line-up for us.

wchesser (1245) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2012
This is a big boy IPA. Medium fading head pretty heavy lacing. Deep amber. Big floral hops and some white pepper spiciness on nose. Great balance for something this big could be a bit more malt to sweeten it and round it out but that’s not what this beer is about. Grapefruit pith bitterness and dank resin. Really good DIPA.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2012
can. well, it certainly does smell like spiced apricot and orange gelatin chews. sharp resin, sweet and candy-like approach turning to a spice cabinet / peppercorn / tree sap finish. sweet from unfernentables and (I have to assume) under-fermented fermentables, it is also surprisingly watery. 97-point furniture polish.

Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Pours a light amber. Aroma is filled with pine, citrus grapefruit, very fruity on the back end. Taste is all hops, with citrus and pine dominating the front. Finishes with a residual bitterness, piney as it goes down. Very bitter, resinous. Strong malt center but leans heavily towards bitter. One of the better DIPAs to come out on the market.

Grass and pine hop aroma. Grass pine and citrus on the palette with enough bitterness to cope with the sweetness of a dipa. A little dryness on the finish which is nice. Decent
