4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A clear amber body with a white head that had mild retention and even less lacing. Aroma had a great mix of grapefruit hops and pine hops upfront and a mild caramel malt sweetness that balanced out the hops. Some alcohol. Flavor had a nice sweetness to it, a little more than the aroma let on. Assertive hops balanced out the initial sweetness. More grapefruit hops then pine. Some warming alcohol. Good dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can brought back from some grocery store in GA. This is a really cloudy beer. Aroma is certainly hoppy. It’s resinous with grapefruit and pine notes. The palate is very full and a little sticky. There is a boatload of hop flavor though it doesn’t really take on a life of its own, perhaps due to the heavy malt presence. Deviant Dales is plenty bitter. It’s a solid IPA.

Pours a light copper in color with minimal light head. Aroma is a strong spicy-sweet piney citrus with a sappy feel to it. Taste is sweet and bitter with a honey-like aftertaste that envelops the mouth. This is an excellent IPA with a perfect balance between malt and hops.
