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!

On tap, nice copper color with a thin white head. Huge hop aroma, slightly fruity. Nice malt balance but with a huge biting finish that is very nice. Great beer.

Pours amber with a foamy but persistent off white head. The aroma is piney. The body is smooth, the flavor is slightly grainy and the finish is dry.

Ok, so after all the obvious, "if youre a hophead, then your going to love this", what remains is possibly the truest version of an IPA after the last two decades. The abv is a little high, I believe the best range for an IPA to be in the 6-6.5% bracket, and being 8% that moves this into the Imperial range, but that notwithstanding, this is still a wonderful example. The color is amber poured into the nonic pint glass with a white fluffy head that has a twinge of yellow in it. The aroma is of caramel malts with citrus and floral hops. Although the taste is pretty much the same, and of course the main focus is the hops, there is a solid malt foundation that cannot be ignored, and it shouldn’t. What that foundation gives this beer is the ability to show off the hops in such a way as to make the aroma hops come out, the flavor hops show off, and the finishing hops ask you for another sip. Really one of the best I’ve had in a long time.

I really like this beer. Smells like a lovely hop bomb poured into a pint glass. Tangerine, slight dankness, peach, mango. Clear coppery orange with a nitrous like head that paints the glass with foamy lace. At 8%, the alcohol is barely noticeable. It is covered by a rich palate of dry citrus fruits, hop bitterness, nearly tannic finish. A delicious, clean double IPA.

Hopped to hell. Pours a hazy copper/ orange color. Nose is bursting with hops, enough to peel paint off the wall. Nice bitterness throughout the finish. Not bad at all. Glad I picked it up.

Aurelius (4027) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Clear, dark orange beer with a dense ivory head. Non-inspiring can. Punch-in-the-nose piney hops when you first crack it open, but it settles down into a sweet caramel vapor. Really well done - sassy but not rude. Assertive ABV and hopping are well-blended into a brew that’s not too sweet, bitter or boozy. Woody, with touches of grassiness and pineapple. Reminds me a bit of the pine-iness that you get with a slightly underripe mango. Medium heavy body, finish is a bit starchy/chalky. A good effort. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

16oz Can from Greene’s in Atlanta. Pour’s a deep copper with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus and hops, abrupt. Taste is smooth with a slight alcoholic burn, with a "pop" of bitterness. One of my favorites!

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Sampled on tap poured yellow with awhite sticky head. Aromas of strong pine very floral and citrusy grapefruit rind lemon and notes of grass and some tropical citrus. Flavor is real bitter and finish is astringent.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 17, 2012
16 oz can from Healthy Spirits in SF. Poured copper with an evaporating beige head and a toffee and citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt base with serious level of IBUs. The finish is puckeringly bitter and stays on the palate. If you crave hop bitterness, you will like this one, but it’s a little over the top for me.

Pint-size can. Poured crystal-clear reddish-orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange, pine, pineapple, and perfumey hoppage over sweet caramel and citrus meat.. hop-forward and very enticing. The flavor was along the same lines, but not quite as vibrant.. orange, pine, and grapefruit bitterness was heavy over fruity meat and caramel again.. very bitter, peppery, and a touch soapy on the long finish. Medium-bodied and very bitter as mentioned on the palate.. just a little sharp at times.. overall a great brew!
