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!

Tallboy can poured into pint glass. This is a well balanced IPA, despite the hop punch that you get from this 8 percenter. Good malt backbone, dank and murky looking, in the best possible way. Lots to like here.

16 oz. can from Total Wine. Pretty, pretty pour -- slightly hazy copper color with mountains of off white head. Expected more hops on the nose, got biscuity malt instead. The texture is tremendous -- thick and creamy, but not too heavy. Taste is biscuit , malt, and light caramel at first then Hops follow and linger on the tongue.

Poured from a TALL BOY! into a St. Louis Cardinals pint glass up to the rim with still a little bit in the can... Appearance - 4 - Really dark copper color, almost red in the pint glass. Thick film of off white head on top sticks around. Smell - 9 - Spicy, grapefruit, pine, garlic, onion, DANK. Taste - 8 - Great tasting beer. Spicy garlic and onion but not overpowering, with strong grapefruit and pine to go with it. Actually pretty balanced with some bready/malty caramel in the background. Little bit of alc but not too much. Mouthfeel - 4 - Light - medium mouth.. Little bit of alc flavor in there. After taste is some citrusy grapefruit type taste, with a little malt background. Overall - 16 - Like the other Oskar Blues beers, it’s awesome that this comes in a can, especially a tall boy! It really is a great beer, but the price is what drags the overall score down for me. 13/four pack - meh.

Bright hop flavor dominated by American hops and grapefruit. Medium-high resin. Light honey, good amount of malt. Slight haze probably from the hop content.

Muggus69 (1132) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2014
Pint can Canned on 1/27/2014 Good looking beer - perfectly clear rich golden body with dense, rocky foam that lays down webs on lace on its descent. Intense nose; plenty of piney, cedary, resiny hops, with notes of citrus rind supported by a notable dose of biscuity malt. The texture is quite a job - thick and creamy without being overly heavy with an ample amount of carbonation, very well balanced. Offers more malt on the body; light caramels, toast and sweet biscuits. Hops follow with serious force, meaning business; pine sap, leafy herbs & spices, cooked citrus, unripe rockmelon. Finishes with a firm bitterness but smooth overall; that big 8% abv is nowhere to be seen! Top notch! Totally changed my mind about canned beer!

Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, taste is citrus, mango, apricot, hoppy goodness. Alcohol is very well balanced, color is a deep golden amber, carbonation is moderate, slight to moderate lacing.

deaconmike (360) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2014
Poured from a tall boy at Taco Mac (#125 brewniversity credit). Clear copper with 1 finger off white head and active carbonation. Aroma is significant caramel malt along with orange, honey and pine. Taste is pretty sweet for an IPA with mild bitterness. Body is medium plus with a foamy mouthfeel. Nice IPA, but a bit on the malty side for my taste.

jamestulloch (1224) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2014
Can from Vino Wines. Hazy orange body with a thick off-white head that quickly fades. Excellent lacing. Slightly sickly aroma of honey and lemon throat sweets, pine, orange and peach. Flavour of hop burps, Lockets and a slightly minty finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. Far too sweet for my liking - give me a sharp, bitter IPA over this sickly honeyed IPA every time.

16oz can. Pours clear dark copper color. Aroma of pine, grass, citrus. Has that clean mountain air smell. How apropos. Flavor is pine, caramel, citrus. Has a bitterness that is cut by an extreme subtle sweetness. Quite enjoyable.
