This beer bleeds hops. The aroma is exactly what the label says, deviant. Opens up very well upon pouring and has a strong taste but good balance. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a lighter orange to darker yelow color with a white head. Aroma was lots and lots of dank hops, like others have said, herbal too. Flavor was much the same, dank ,and bitter, but one dimensional and the malts get in the way of this one a bit too much. Still pretty solid.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. White head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Resin and caramel aromas. Well balanced with caramel and resin front to back.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Alís of Hampton. I had the regular version and a double dry hopped version from cask. First is the double:poured a cloudy orange pour, barely any head, small lacing. Aromas of vanilla, pine, orange, pineapple, and other restrained hop notes from the cask. Easy drinking since it was on the cask but lacked the bite and carbonation needed for this style. The regular version was better. Brighter, and more vibrant, it also was more tangy and funked out. I enjoyed the beer, not crazy about it though.

On tap at the AC Beer Fest. Pours an orange amber color with white foam head. Aroma of citrus, pine and heavy caramel. Sweet sticky caramel taste with that hop hit and sweet citrus and caramel notes on the finish. A big malt backbone and with dank hops. Delish.

I had this after Green Flash Palate wrecker, and it pretty much held itís own. Big caramel and pine aromas right off the bat. Flavor is smooth and creamy caramel, the a big citrusy finish. Long, sticky aftertaste. I enjoyed this. Can, at the Flying Saucer, Nashville.

Can, Copper color with big, two-finger head. Nice aroma of spruce, floral/citrus hops. Medium-heavy bitterness. Creamy and slightly oily texture. Grapefruit citrus hop in taste. Bitter finish. This is a lip-smackin big bitter IPA winner in a can.
