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!

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, OBís 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. Itís way overpriced, even by Oskar Bluesís standards, and maybe thatís 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 (570) - 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

16 oz can. Clear amber with a slim whitish head, leaving lace regardless. Nose is fresh squeezed OJ, cut pine and mountain air. Thick and chewy almost like a smoothie. Carb tingle, resiny, with spicy heat that creeps up on you. Taste is orange peel, caramel and pine, kind of standard, but what sets this apart is the lovely watermelon sweetness and cracked pepper bite. Iím glad i gave one of my 4-pack to a friend or this could have gotten dangerous.

very dark orange with a finger of foamy head. Gritty hop aroma, some floral and bitter notes too. Very smooth mouthfeel, with some maltyness to start, and bitterness to finish.

16oz can. Pours golden copper with a big fluffy off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is piney, resiny, slightly catty Summit hops and Columbus with some caramel malt.

The flavor is bready caramel malts with a big piney, resiny bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a very nice IPA. Iíve heard it described as a mix of Daleís and Gubna. Itís definitely not as over the top Summit as Gubna.

DocLock (8593) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pounder can from Caponeís. Pours caramel colored with a dark straw bottom edge and a finger of off-white head that laces well. Nose is big caramel malt, resiny hops, piney, funky, and black peppery. Tastes very resiny, with a huge hop bill and IBU-heavy bitterness, a solid caramel malt bill, and a medium palate heft and complex smooth finish. A bit rough around the edges, but enjoyable.

I was skeptical when I heard this beer would be a nice balance between Daleís Pale Ale and Gubna just simply based on how light Dales Pale Ale is. They nailed it. the mouthfeel is very similar to Gubna but the taste and body are light like Dales Pale ale. Wonderful beer.
