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!

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 On tap at below the radar, Huntsville AL. Orange brown pour, foamy white head with lots of uneven lacing. smells faintly of pixie stix and orange kool aid mix. Medium body. Robust and complicated flavor, more subdued than the nose. Bitter at first, taste becomes savory and buttery, hops are prevalent but this is hearty like a chicken/rice dinner. Palate is left a little bitter and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (714) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a white head that rapidly fades. Quite a potent aroma consisting of lots of pine, pineapple, orange, mango, and some malty caramel undertones. Taste is extremely heavy on pine with a good balance of some caramel. Hops are distinct, but this one lacks the big hoppy kick that is common and expected in something like this. I also get some undertones of some darker fruits such as plum, as unusual as that might seem. A little pineapple as well. Short aftertaste of pine and hops. Dry and very bitter. Medium bodied. Sticky, but not overly so. This is a very good IPA. While it lacks in some places such as a bigger hoppy bite, it is more than made up for in lots of other areas, being the taste and aroma.

Ok, was wanting a little more character. Not too old. Canned a month who, but tasted flat and a little bland to me. Did really enjoy the nose. Very earthy and nice hops up front.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Draft. Pours deep gold with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet and pine. Taste is overhwlemingly piny. Not pleasant at all. Only thing that saves this is the flat, crisp drinkability. Not great, but a easy drinking higher ABV beer, so I guess it has its place. But overall my least favorite Oskar Blues offering.

Advocate_Ames (445) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2012
A pleasant hoppy brew. Itís not overwhelming. Daleís has a medium to a high level of bitterness, itís not extreme & holds a flavor beyond the bittery alcoholness. That is why this is a good beverage. The Deviant Daleís isnít meant to simply be a bitter hop-loverís dream... itís also meant to be a good beer that holds flavor. You decide, cheers.

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - AUG 27, 2012
copper colored pour, average sized head. very resinous hoppy aroma with some sweetness, but overall very hoppy and fresh. flavor is also very hoppy, nice medium thick mouthfeel. piney, woody, such of sweetness, nice thick malt base but very big and bold hops in this one. finishes very bitter and satisfyingly and lingers on forever. reminds me of a slightly maltier and heavier union jack maybe, with less citrus/fruit overtones. this is seriously good stuff and i am really glad i was able to find some fresh. wholeheartedly deserves the 99% style rating, this is a top IPA for sure

16 oz tallboy can into a pint glass. Canned on: 8-08-12 @ 09:46 "SPF-15000". Not sure how this got past EPA! A - Dark and clear amber body.One finger soapy white head. Nice lacing and retention. S - Orange juice, resinous pine, and danky onions. The onions do have a significant presence here which seems to overpower any traces of malt sweetness. T - This is obviously not the IPA for me. Starts off with a very bitter and savory onion and dank flavor. Almost no sweetness. So much alcohol that its almost liquor like. Mouth feel is medium bodied with high carbonation, but the drinkability is low for me due to the flavor profile and alcohol. O - I canít blame this on freshness as its not even three weeks old. Its a very savory and danky beer. I canít even tote this one to taste buds either because the alcohol presence makes for one unbalanced beer.

Theydon_Bois (9528) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Tap at Joe Squared (Inner Harbour), Baltimore - 22/05/12. Slightly obscure amber/orange. Sweet malts and citrus hops on the nose. Tropical fruits in the taste - mango, grapefruit, peach with a sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied with a good level of carbonation and a lingering bitterness in the finish.. One to re-visit!

rosenbergh (7228) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Draught at the Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY.
Cloudy dark amber colour with small off-white head. Very tempting strong hoppy aroma with bitterness and resin. Strong darkish resiny bitter hoppy flavour. Strong sweet maltiness accompanied. Sweet hoppy aftertaste.

JStax (3163) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a large white head of foam with great retention. Leaves sheets of lacing. The aroma is very piny and grassy with a resinous character up front. Columbus hops are all over the place. Taste is very bitter with just a hint at a sweet, grapefruity type presence in the finish. Overall, not one Iíd worry about having again, but still good.
