3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not so much a bigger, better Dale’s as a more bloated one, Deviant starts with a massive smack of sweet caramel malt and...that’s it. Hops give off a modest pine slant, and the beer grows a minor IBU pop on the finish, but really it seems mostly bland, East Coast as hell and underwhelming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at J’s. Light copper with a finger of foam that lingers. Honey, bready malt and candied orange aromas dominate. Sweet on the palate, well-balanced though. Good malt character, more honey and citrus notes, grapefruit. Soft bitterness and light pine. Sweet on the finish with some mild bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the can into a nonic pub glass, a medium orange amber colour, some chill haze, fluffy off-white foam. Simple maltbill supporting typical over-the-top American hop notes: grapefruit, pine cones, dank dank dank weed. Medium body, strong carbonation, lingering bitter aftertaste. Predictable, but tasty as so many other high-gravity A-IPAs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks a bit English, actually, with a body somewhere between amber and copper, and some streaky white head that quickly faded. Nothing English about the aroma - a huge hit of pine, grapefruit and malt. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Plenty of chewy toffee in the mouth, lots of grapefruit plus a touch of orange, and a long bitter finish.
