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!

Picked this up in a trade. Kept it in the fridge for a week and poured into a pint glass.

A - 2-Finger light tan head. Huge abundance of creamy tight bubbles. Head lacing sticks right to the side of the glass. SRM of 4.5, light brown resembling tanned leather.

S - Huge profile of dry hops hits the nose first. Very light expected aroma of citrus and pine. More of a burnt cedar scent with a lot of dry hops. Lots of honey or caramel malts and a very boozy scent but it is a big IPA.

T - Wow. Great DIPA without an overwhelming level of bitterness. IBU is far less intense than other IPAs in this category.Citrus, lemon and caramel with a lot of floral characters.

M - 50/50 carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium bodied. Huge lingering dry hop taste that stays around until you wash it down with water.

O - This is a most impressive beer. Wow. Drinkable, not a hop explosion and pleasant on a nice chilly day like today.

Canned on 04-05-12
Tasted on 4/25/12 from a 16oz can purchased at Vinea. Pours clear amber with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to thin lace, leaving thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is super intense earthy resin hops, and a ton of caramel and bread malt, with the same touch of onion that I get off of other Oskar Blues hoppy beers. The flavor is a hop punch in the mouth with tons of bitter, earthy resin, the touch of onion, and the almost sweet, and equally intense, caramel and bread malt. The body is full with lively carbonation and a super long and intensely bitter, earthy resin hops with a touch of bread malt.

Oskar Blues always does big flavors...and this one delivers. The pour is a richer red than most IPAs I’ve seen. A ruby gold with deep lacing. The smell is definitely intriguing. A sweetness of cantaloupes and melon. The carmel malt sweetness hits real soft at first and is immediately washed away with a grand hoppy bitterness. A real bite that lingers. The aftertaste is piney, resiny, and going to stick around til tomorrow morning. Medium body with a definite dryness. DD is a lotta beer. Its got a kick, for sure. Not one to session, but a nice ride through one pint in a can.

To me, this beer defines imperial pale ale, the malts are quite present in a mildly sweet way... there are some nice stone fruit and pine hop flavors that cut through, but there was not really an assault of hops on my palate... a little bit fuller bodied that a lot of other ipas at that same abv... decent beer, worth trying, but for the price its a bit underwhelming...

Pours a clear amber with a medium tan head. Aroma has some spicy/earthy notes and light citrusy floral notes...orange...a bit of caramely malty. Flavor is tealike and boozy...more on the earthy/bitter side...a bit piney and medicinal. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with a piney/medicinal finish.

Draft. Small off-white head, lightly hazed amber body. Aroma is very inviting -- moderately sweet, grapefruit, mango, some cantaloupe. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, mango, some pineapple. Medium body, some resin, light stickiness. They can call it an IPA, but really -- it’s an IIPA (and a delicious one at that).

jsmerig (1472) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2012
Pours a golden yellow with a creamy tan head. Aroma of musty pepper. Taste is peppery to an extreme. Almost has an ashtray quality. Not a good thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1more4dessert (334) - Upstate, New York, USA - APR 23, 2012
copper colored with one finger off-white foam. Excellent lacing. Pine resin and floral notes in aroma with light tropical fruitiness. Taste is similar, some malt sweetness. Some summit garlic appears especially upon warming, but this is now where near as off-putting as in their single hop summit DIPA. Mouthfeel is a little abrasive.

A great DIPA most notable for the immense perfume and aromatic hops. nice honey look and head, pretty full mouth, some good amount of malts and not really to bitter, Can not on tap at special event at Dive Bar.

16oz can, purchased at Bottle Barn. Pours a deep, bright golden-amber color; creamy off-white head with solid retention and lacing. Dank grapefruit and pine in the aroma, along with plenty of warming alcohol, fruitiness, and sugary malts. Medium-full body, with moderate fine-bubbled CO2. Plenty of warming alcohol here, and this is well into double IPA territory: loads of fruitiness, an assertive maltiness (candied fruit, hints of caramel, sugar), and a vibrant hop bitterness of pine and citrus that, while endearing, just isn’t enough to compensate for the high viscosity here, the slightly tea-like malt character, and overt syrupiness. Nowhere close to dry. A syrupy, high-impact double IPA that just seems like it’s pandering. Alcohol + hops + lifeless maltiness. Lingering bitterness and paper in the finish.
