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

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
