Pours clear amber with a large yellowish head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is very bitter, hoppy; lots of pine and grapefruit. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s India Pale Ale finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Tap. Light copper with almost no head. Smells nice and grapefruity with a little spice and perfume. Nice clean bitter flavor with not much sweetness. Nice and dry.

Taste is flowers, citrus, yeast and pine, with a nice, boozy finish. Pretty much everything you want in a solid IPA.

Tallboy from Leuken’s Dunedin. Bought the day it came off the truck. Pours a deep caramel/ amber color with a white head. Nose is huge hops: caramel, orange, apricot, pine sap, and peaches. Flavor is similar- a hit of malt followed by a burst of citrus hops with twinges of pine. Oranges, peaches, apricots, white and red grapefruit, and a bit of sap. Medium in body and a bit of astringency in the finish- the hops drag their nails as it goes down. Interesting, hoppy IPA.

Tall boy can poured into glass. Hops, hops and more hops in this one. Pretty bitter with a slight resin after taste. Perhaps a little bit more malt would make this really stand out for me.

Can. Pours clear copper with two fingers of white head. Aroma is mostly floral but has some minor citrus. Taste has some very hoppy flavor. Not very bitter but has some serious cone taste to it. The palate is a little syrupy but fits the beer. For an 8% beer, this is killer and very easy to drink. Not a top brew but pretty enjoyable. The finish is a little on sweet side.

growler. Light copper ale w/ mild white head, good lacing. Smells like heady, clean, muscadine fueled hops. Huge bite, but soo fucking drinkable. I get pine/evergreens & citrus yet can never escape a sweet grape ape or muscadine flavor... I am getting over a cold. Still pretty Perfect and a new addition to the the top IPA repertoire.

As Fozzie the bear once said..." Wokka Wokka Wokka!" Can shared by UDBeernut....and then Sloth. All the while I had just bought a 4 pack of this. Science proves yet again that great minds think alike. Bring it on...Dale. hazy orange with a thick oily head. Strong biting nose that seamlessly transfers thru the body. Concentrated hops at all points. Lovely and complex lacing.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Hoppy and strong version of the Dale’s pale ale. Excellent, but not for the weak of heart. If you like hops then step right up.

Draft at Eulogy. Poured a dark amber with a big pillowy white head that left lots of lace. Big dry hop flavors. Bigger than most IPAs but not quite a double. Some grassy ginger notes. Lots of pine resin. Burned citrus pith. Darker color suggests some malt but not much malt flavor is present. Nice palate. Full taste. Dry finish.
