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 almost copper in color, usually a bad sign for IPAs (for me, anyway). Luckily, my fears are proven unfounded. Great pine and grapefruit peel aroma with lots of herbal notes to it as well. Some malt sweetness and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is very heavy on the hop character. Big bitterness all the way through, but really nice pine and herbal hop flavors and a moderate citrus quality. The sweetness is moderate and held in check.

On tap: Pours a clear deep golden brass with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with lots of resiny piny hops. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with a lot of pungent hop flavor and bitter balance before a slightly drier bittersweet finish. A nice twist on a classic recipe that is surprisingly drinkable.

16oz can (awesome BTW) - Enough head fot such light carbonation, golden color and hippy nose. Not too bitter.

Excellent, just the way I like them. Lots of pine and citrus in the aroma with a malty sweet back bone. Pours a clear amber with a small lingering, lacing head. The flavor starts with the malt and finishes with a big hop bite. Crisp, clean and refreshing. Very nice indeed.

16 oz can thanks to Dean. Poured a very nice looking sunburnt thick density body underneath a larger full foamy bright white head. Aroma is hop resin, yellow grapefruit, orange zest and rind, slight grain and a touch of toffee. Good fuller bodied with carbonation that starts off soft but midswallow is more detectable and a bitter dry finish that lingers nicely. Flavor has a touch of alty sweetenss along with grapefruit, citrus rind, wet hop cones and lightly toasted bread with orange marmalade. This is a good good beer.

Pours a deep amber with a thin white head. Dank aroma. Dark hops in the nose. Bitter, dry and dank. I really like this beer. Sometimes I get buzzed quick and start posting random garbage.

This is about $14 for a four-pack of 16-oz cans. The aluminum can definitely be detected in the aroma, under a citrusy, pungent (onion-y) hop, OB’s signature. Color is hazy orange with a slushy off-white head. Nice color. Taste is uber-pungent hops, atop a rye malt. Double peppery-spice. It almost goes a little overboard with the spiciness, and could have used maybe a sweeter malt to balance it. Still, the taste is fine. Slick and buttery feel. This is a very nice, very strong (8%) beer. It’s way overpriced, even by Oskar Blues’s standards, and maybe that’s why it gets a point or two deducted.

Tall Boy. Pours dark coper -amber. Nice fluffy foam. Overwhelming hop aroma and taste. Almost like chewing on a hop pellet. Flavor is balanced with a nice malty sweetness but hops are the primary flavor here. Awesome

Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Fruity and piney hoppy aroma, very fresh and resinous, with some lighter malty sweetness. The flavor has big resinous piney hops, lighter grassy and citric notes, and a light sweet malty base that pulls it all together. Nice.

TheGB (515) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2012
Pours amber red with a nice head. Potent hop aroma of very herbal hops and some spiciness. Medium to full bodied with spicy hop flavor, grapefruit, grass. A bit on the sweeter side of IPAs. Good if you like herbal hop aroma and taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
