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!

Thanks to yourefragile for sharing this one. Served in a SAVOR glass. Pours a golden-amber color with a good, fluffy white head and some lacing on the way down. The nose carries a really nice burst of pine, citrus, and tropical hops mixed with a touch of caramel malt in the background. The flavor unfortunately falls back quite a bit from there with some semi-harsh bitterness, a touch of alcohol, and too much malt interfering with the hops. Body is medium with good carbonation and a fairly-heavy bitterness, which is slightly offset by some alcohol. The nose was really nice, but the rest of the beer was "just" pretty good.

Part of a six IPA tasting session. <br \> Canned on 3/20/12. 4 pack. <br \> Poured from a 16 oz can into a snifter. <br \> <br \> A: Pours a clear amber/red with a one finger white head. <br \> S: Dank [Columbus] hops fill up the glass and the surrounding area, leaving little room for much else. <br \> T: Grapefruit and piney hops begin the assault, followed by sweet caramel and a lingering bitterness. <br \> M: Sticky, medium-bodied, and moderately carbonated. <br \> O: This is definitely targeted at hopheads, but the lingering bitterness is complimented well by the malt backbone that didn’t show itself in the aroma, making it somewhat drinkable.

Can:   Pale copper, fiery, clear, moderate to thin frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Super strong piney and pithy nose.   No question this is an IPA.   Wished it were a bit more citrusy and sweet, but it will do.   Smooth hoppiness up front, pithy, citrus zest, but without too much sweetness.   This is not a malt sided IPA, but instead a moderately sweet hoppy and clean example of the style.   Very clean, very piney and resiny without much flaw.   I only wished it were a touch sweeter.   Malt base is decent, hops are there, certainly bitter, but without being astringent.   Has all the hop flavor to represent the style very well, but without any astrigent bitterness.   Deviant it may be, but delicious it certainly is.

I am of the "Oskar Blues can do no wrong" camp. In fact, I FUCKING INSIST I coined that phrase. But.....! (sigh) This smells delish, lots of pine and floral aroma. The nose punches the olfactory like nothing you’ve ever had before. The pour is a lovely orange w/beige cream head. But the hops are waaaaaay too over powering. Anyone who has read my previous reviews knows I like hoppy, bitter brew. But the bitter hops in this kills EVERYTHING thing else. The malt, barley, yeast. All non-detectable because of all the bitter hops. The high alcohol content is also not detected because of it. The bitter hops are nice, but without anything else they are not enough. 2.7 out of five is a gift, Oskar!

Dark but bright orange/amber pour with light beige head. Nose is sweet resin, orange zest, and some bready malts. Some garlicy-onion notes. But mostly a huge amount of soapy, resiny hops. Sweet but still very bitter and astringent palate. Waxy palate.

20120406 16oz can from Friendship WL (glad to see they’ve made strides in the beer dept lately btw!). Medium amber with even carbonation visible beneath small but lasting film of creamy beige head. Aroma is sulfurous, green onion, and yellow cake. Flavor is a bit vegetal, beany, more sweet cake, and thick with serious C hops. Pithy, harshly resinous, long lingering resinous bitterness, and a bit of sweetness that lasts at the end. Nothing special beyond the admittedly awesome packaging, but it’s good. At $13.50 a 4-pk I probably wouldn’t buy it again. And by probably, I mean never.

keanex (1431) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2012
Poured into a Duvel tulip from a 16 ounce can canned on 3-20-2012.

A: Crystal clear dark amber body with a decent sized light tan rocky head.

S: Bitter citrus and pine hops.

T: Bready malts with a slightly peppery citrus up-front with a grapefruit and pine bite. Definitely a hop lover’s beer.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation finishing sharp.

O: Solid IPA (or is it a IIPA?) showcasing hops, but not much of anything else.

Aromas of citrus and pine. Pours clear copper, white head. Bitter, in the beginning and bitter in the end. Finish is very dry, and a bit astringent, a good thing. Overall, a most excellent IPA.

Tall boy. That’s the ’coolest’ thing about this brew, sadly. Orange amber, no haze, small white head. Nose is very sweet, almost candied hops, i can just see the sugar cones breaking off into the beer. Flavor is similarly very sugary, also some wild onion, grape juice, light butter. Ugh. Not a huge fan of regular Dales so I’m not too surprised at my reaction to this one.
