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!

Theydon_Bois (16859) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, 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 (10360) - 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 (5214) - 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.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2012
16 oz tall boy at fountainheads, can pours an amber orange color with a nice white head. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, pine resin. Real hoppy. Sticky mouthfell with a long bitter finish, drinks like a double IPA, not a pale ale.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2012 Pours a dark ruby amber from a 16 oz can. Thick white head. Nice in a 16 oz half acre mug! Sweet aroma of hops. Flavor is very strong. Hops and bitterness. I?m going to have to try one ice cold. This seems too strong to enjoy. Iím not really enjoying it.

Drank straight from the can. A: Pouring a little bit into a glass, it features a clear golden copper color with a one finger offwhite head with underwhelming retention and lacing. Kind of hard to judge this way, so Iíll give it benefit of the doubt. S: Strong pine resins and grapefruit peel abound - but itís also got a decent caramel malt backbone to it with a hint of brown sugar. Nicely expressive, if somewhat standard issue. T: Hops make their presence known immediately on the palate, with an oily texture and floral, piny flavor. Right after the hop attack, caramel malts increase in presence while the hop profile goes from floral to tropical, while the finishing aftertaste features a return of the piny hops. Quite bitter, especially on the finish, but also fairly sweet in the midtaste, not unlike a Lagunitas IPA. If thereís any flaw with the beer, itís that the hop/malt balance clashes rather than melds together - the initial flavor progressions on the opening are silky smooth, but become sharp and disjointed into the midtaste and finish. Ergo, the balance and drinkability suffers slightly. Not for those who seek balanced DIPAs with depths of complex subtleties, but hella enjoyable for those who like their tongue to be coated with resin *ahem*. M: Initially creamy and slightly heavy, with building hop oils leaving behind a resiny, piny aftertaste and strong dryness. Palate cleansing/killing with decent carbonation. O: Itís just another solidly impressive DIPA in a vast field of solidly impressive DIPAs. Thatís not a slight at all; DIPAs are quickly becoming my favorite style, and Iíd have no trouble coming back to this bad ass mutha again.

HighlanderOne (1233) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Poured from 16oz. can. Big hop aroma - floral, grapefruit, pine in that order. Solid amber, tan head. Very nice mix of hops in flavor and the malt complements the hops excellently. Mellows nicely as it warms to a great finish. I expected this to be outstanding and I was not disappointed.

tmoreau (3706) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served as a DIPA would be, showing a hazed, orangy amber color, modest, soft white head foam that quickly reduced to a ring & film, but left a nice coating of wavy spray as lacing. The aroma was sweet orange in addition to a strong, piney scent. With a medium+ body and decent carbonation, the flavor exhibited hefty malt and bitterness that didnít just attack the tongue, but filled the whole palate, while leaving a nice hop bite to linger past the finish. A well rounded and balanced, strong IPA.

CPDalton (67) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Tall Boy Can. Poured a dark orange, two finger off white head. Nose has huge estery scents with a nice sweetness to it. Taste follows exactly. Hoppy, fruity, and a nice malt sweetness with a little alcohol warmth. Medium mouthfeel. Good, not great.

Draft at World of Beer in Land O Lakes. Pours a slightly hazed copper amber color with a foamed beige head. Tons of sudsy lacing along the side of the glass. Aroma is bold with pineapple and citrus hops with some lingering sweetness at the tail end. Flavor is extremely hoppy for a single IPA. Alcohol is fairly noticeable as one would expect at 8%. Very nice if you are in the mood for a hefty dose of hops to awaken the pallate.
