Pine, resin, citrus hops held up by a big sweet malty backbone. Finish is lingering bitter with caramel sweetness, too. Quite nice.

Pour from a tall boy gave a golden copper beer with a modest off white head. Aromas were mighty good with pineapple, citrus, pine, and some dank weed like quality. Flavors start out sweet and turn bitter and kind of dry pretty quick. Lingering bitterness on the finish. Definitely a hoppy one.

De viant dales is big, definately not for the faint at heart. I highly reccomend this to anyone who like IPA’S that are big in taste and character. I felt like it was pretty well balanced for the ABV and the serious amount of hops.

I have never been a huge fan of Dale’s Pale Ale. It’s good, but not my favorite IPA made here in colorado. For some reason, when they amp it up for Deviant Dales, it’s a whole different ball game. This is a great beer. Fantastic hop profile with just enough malt to balance it out. And who could complain about that big old can. It just looks awesome! I highly recommend.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2012 Draft some where in Philly & StateLine (MD)... Nice vibrant red color with a nice little head. Smells danky with a boat load of hops on top. Lots of garlic and onions in the nose... Taste is super hoppy and malty. Garlic isnt as noticable in the taste. Rich... well balanced but bitter and danky at the same time. Body is filling and full bodied for an IPA. Alcohol is hidden well, borderline DIPA body and taste.... Overall: Really enjoyed this beer

16oz can poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a slightly hazy golden with mellow carbonation and a small tight head. Aroma is a big bright fresh hop scent. It has a medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor has a touch of malt that is bowled over by a bold hop resin, pine and citrus. After taste is bitter with the pine standing out. Overall I think its just another over hoped IPA, there regular Dave’s Pale Ale is much better.
