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!

16 oz. Can. Iíve found my IPA! I love lots of IPAís, but I think Iíve fallen IN love with this one. Foamy head over a burnt orange, translucent bronze appearance. Grassy hop scent with a sweet sugary tinge. The medium bodied palate had a sticky texture. Bitter grass taste, huge hop, with a sweet middle, and a biting bitter finish. Delicious!

16oz can pours a hazy, dark orange with a thin, lacing, creamy white head. Nose is strong, big citrus, resinous hop pellets, oranges, earthy, pine, soap, sticky sap, grapefruit. Sweet, bitter flavor, candied oranges, pine sap, honey, light caramel, lemon zest, grapefruit pulp. Full bodied, sweet, zesty finish. I liked the 2012 version of this far more than the 2012 version of Hopslam. Really drinkable, tons of flavor.

Can. A nice dark copper color with a white head. This could be mistaken for a double IPA given the intense hop aroma and big dry bitter finish. It has a nice sweet malty compliment to the hop profile.

Blairgus (2728) - California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
16 may 2012, can. yellow with faint orange hue, clear, steady bubbles, foamy head. nose is strong grapefruit citrus with the slightest of alcohol sweetness. thin body and fizzy. this is great! grapefruit rind with noticeable maltiness and some alcohol sweetness, but the hops still have the dominant edge, finishing with a slight oiliness. great!

Big hoppy beer. Hoppyness tastes like onion, only have had from the can so havenít smelled it or seen it, only pounded a couple of these tall boys one evening after work and felt real good and thoroughly enjoyed the big bitter.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 15, 2012
16oz tall boy can. Clear amber/orange with a dense light beige head. Aroma of pine, flowers, grapefruit and toffee. Flavor is very well balanced bitter hops and sweet caramel malt, the alcohol is well hidden. Medium body with soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. Really good IPA, lots of fresh hop aroma and flavor and super drinkable at 8% abv.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Can from Mars Cheese Castle. Pours a deep gold, hints of copper. Frothy whitish head. Nose is big and resiny hops, some juicy citrus notes and a hint of caramel and perhaps a touch of oxidation? This was canned ~1mth ago. Nose is decent. On tasting, huge bitterness, some warming alcohol and a big malt body. Some faint caramel. Lots of citrus and pine notes. Seems a lot like the PNW type of IPA. Solid, just not really my preferred style.

Draft. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid smooth resin hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation with soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew

Wow! Iíve been meaning to get to this for a while, and todayís the day. Outstanding specimen of an IPA. This has everything going for it. Iím almost tempted to wish for a lower ABV so I can drink more in a session.
