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!

    Tried this one a while back and forgot to inventory it.. A clear, deep amber colored body with a huge frothy head that slowly dissipated and left some spotty lace. Smell is dank, pine needles,with a little floral herbs for good measure. Taste is nicely balanced between big sweet malt, dank floral hoppiness, and bracing bitterness. Mouth feel is a bit thick, nicely carbonated, and slightly oily. Overall another good beer from O.B.

    Aroma is bittersweet grapefruit and rich caramel malt. Copper colored body topped with a medium sized white head that left little lace, medium to full bodied with a slight alcohol burn. Flavor is grapefruit, candy sugar, toffee, spicy pine.

    Clear copper colour pour with a great head, retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and caramel malt. Strong taste of pine and grassy hops, grapefruit, lemon and orange peel. complimented with a little sweetness. Long bitter finish. Medium to full body and smooth. Definitely a beer I will be having again.

    God, I love Oskar Blues and their cans. This one's from the Brevard brewery I recently visited. Rich rusty orange with a thin but dense ecru cap that never quite disappears. Aroma is sweet caramel, orange, and grapefruit with something buttery. Crazy and unrelenting grapefruit oil and pine flavors bite the tongue right off the bat, but with a quite sweet underlying caramelized sugar. Until it's properly warmed these are juxtaposed rather than blending, and they never quite balance. Somewhat complicated for something so boldly flavored and extreme. IIPA isn't my style, especially not one so extreme, but I respect this: Surprisingly harsh and moreish at the same time. Quite sticky, prickly, and richly bodied, leaving a fine lace down the glass.

    Super sampling courtesy of slowrunner77. Amber pour with good clarity and small, lasting head. Aroma is delightfully skunky, sticky pine topnotes. Flavor is big and bold--evergreen bite on top of plenty of sweet malt. Delicious and satisfying with a medium-full body. It's been a while since I got to have an OB and man am I thankful to have this one.

    I had this beer at 1906 Ale House in Roanoke, VA. This was a nice 2x IPA; however, I have had better. It was a bit malty for me - not enough hops. That being said, it wasn't objectionable by any means.

    In between IPA & IIPA in terms of style. Clean and crisp with a punchy bitterness and a good floral hop profile. Great looking pour with a large lasting head and ample lacing. Nothing exceptional, blends in with the others.

    Sampled on 8/2/2012. IPA Day! This Imperial IPA pours an orange gold color from a 16oz can. Medium to large sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and piney hops. A touch of grapefruit as well. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and piney. Decent carbonation. Lots of hop flavors with a nice malt backbone. Some lingering reisny bitterness. A nice solid Imperial IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    First pint at HopFest @ World of Beer/Altamonte Springs, FL. Wanted some new samples, this was definitely a good one! Seems way stronger, and extra bitter than Dale's Pale Ale. Dryer for sure. I wanted to drink this fast because it didn't come out super cold and knew there was another beer coming. I never really see this here in the beer stores, but will keep an eye out for it now. Dale's Pale Ale is a beer that I wanted to go back to soon as well, as I haven't had that in a while. Maybe I will have to buy both. Have not had anything from Oskar Blues that I did not like (a lot).

    Strong, hoppy aroma has a firm underpinning of sour citrus, equal parts grapefruit and orange. It pours a clear coppery amber with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent ivory head. Flavor is not just hoppy, but downright evergreen with a grapefruit undertone, rather bitter but not fiercely so. Texture has firm body and a good amount of fizz. Pack this one in!
