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!

Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma is dank hops with plenty of citrus. Taste is sweet with some citrusy hops and bitterness. Medium bodied and oily. Quite good!

nbondi (201) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Canned 3/12/12. Murky amber-orange with good white head. Somewhat meager nose of over-ripe orange, resin, grass, weed. Medium-thick with good carbonation. Lots of weed in this one. Good malt back bone with more resin, raw hop pellets, big bitter finish. Not as well rounded as I might have expected from the high ratings.

Pours deep amber color. Aroma is dank hops. Taste is trying to be balanced with loads of hop bitterness being smoothed out by caramel malts. Hops do tend to dominate, but if you were looking for an easier drinking IPA, you probably would not have purchased this in the first place. Great for a hop head.

4 oz pour at the canned craft beer festival in Scottsdale. Pours a bright golden orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is piney hops. The taste is so amazing, the hops are mixed so well. There are citrus, pine and floral hops all playing together. Iíve had almost every beer from Oscar Blues and this is a serious standout. Fantastic!

16oz can pours . . . , ok, Iíve been drinking the crap out of this wonderful brew, clear copper with dirty tan head of foam and leaving behind some spotty lacing. The aroma delivers resiny pine hops, spicy hop goodness, some cedar wood like spiciness and then a sweet malt enhanced spicy hop dankness. The taste is a yummy robust mix of both spicy and pine hop bitterness and then a lesser amount of hop flavor and just a faint yet flavor binding maltiness pulling, as best it can, the experience together. This is full robust hoppy chewy bitterness and just frikiní hits the spot time and time again. Iím pretty sure this is the best new mass produced beer I have had in a really long time. Kudos!!

Clear chestnut color with a cakey white head. Aroma is sweet and resinous tangerine oils and red grapefruit, and taste is similar, but deeply pity and bitter with a lingering emphasis on the "resinous". The bitterness is a bit too herby and vegetal for my liking, though. $3.5/16oz

nsquishee (598) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Oh my, this is tasty. Sweet and musty with very dank hops. Very creamy and sweet, but not overly sweet. Large citrus notes balance the deep, thick maltiness. I love this stuff.

highibus (727) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2012
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.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2012
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 shouldnít. 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 Iíve had in a long time.
