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!

Transfer from BA review on 5-24-12 - Poured from 16 oz can into pint glass Appearance – Pours an orange – copper color with a very slow to form but dense head with a just slightly off white color. The head has wonderful retention but eventually fades leaving a good amount of lacing. Smell – A good level of hop aroma is present and most pertinent. The hop aromas are biggest of pine, but there are citrus and earthy notes of hop as well. Behind all the hop aroma is a sweeter caramel and citrus as well as malt aroma, bringing a balance to all the hop. Taste – The flavor starts out as smooth malt with a light caramel sweetness. The hops soon enter and rid the brew of the sweetness. The hop flavors start out almost entirely of pine, but are soon met with other hop flavors as well. Some citrus hop enters more to the middle to the end. At the very end of the taste, an earthy and grassy hop flavor mix with the rest and bring the taste to the end. These flavors that enter in the end are rather intense and leave a lingering bitterness on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite nice and creamy. The carbonation level is light with it seeming to be held into the brew by the thickness of the body. Overall the beer coats, but yet tingles ever so slightly on the tongue creating a nice mouthfeel. Overall – A pretty good IPA. It has a nice look, nose, and feel. While the majority of the taste is good, the bitterness left on the tongue at the end is not one I love (although some may enjoy the particular bitter).

This is a good IPA and very good considering how much hops and alcohol were pumped into it. Still, its thick on the tongue and the hops have an astringency to them.

16 oz can. Pours light caramel color, with a substantial amour of white foam. Grassy, piney hops on the nose, which all carry thru in the first sip. Decent malt backbone, but still more hop forward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium gold, clear, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, piney and resiny hops. Flavor is grainy malt with touch of caramel, piney-resiny hops, citrus, balanced. Well made.

Nice citrus grapefruit aroma with some piney. Flavor is more piney resinous with a solid amount of malt. Good balance and a solid beer. Prefer less piney in my IPAs but very well made ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad. Not great. Pours an amber cloudy. Lots of head. And the head takes a while to go away. Nice dry bitter flavor with a lingering pleasant bitterness.

1 pint can pours a clear copper with a nice off-white head and lacing. Aromas of delicious hops, bread, herbs, pine, and malt. Flavor is hop bitterness with a hint of alcohol. Nice IPA.

BrewGoblin (260) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
A nice little stronger IPA that was more like a weaker Imperial. Poured a dark orange with a frothy ivory head. Resin and herbal hop aroma with a taste much the same, maybe a bit more floral and citrus. Fairly balanced hop/malt ratio. Some alcohol taste but not overpowering. A pretty nice IPA with a medium body that I would surely buy again and recommend.
