Can poured into nonic. Clear copper with two finger head that lingers and leaves lacing all the way down. Pine resin aroma with citrus and tropical fruits. Some dank notes and boozy bread too. Solid citrus hop bitterness on the tongue with good malt sweetness in support. Sticky but crisp mouthfeel with average carbonation and mediun-full body.

On tap at great lost bear. Flabby and odd. Sort of like the new Ballantine, without the woody intrigue and over the top bitterness. Ho hum.

Good but at this point it's pretty old because I failed to look at the can on date before purchase. That being said, I'll give it a fair shake. Pours a deep amber. Aroma is malt and caramel. Taste is malt heavy with a small amount of hops. Mouthfeel is medium tobthick. Overall a decent beer that I would love to try fresh.

L (4) - Nice, DEEP amber color. Big fluffy head on top. Almost too much.

S (3.75) - Not much aromas really, both hop or malt. Didn't smell bad by any means.

T (3.75) - Meh . . . You can tell theres a nice malty base beer to this. But more of that really weird, sharp, not-quote-alpha bitterness. Almost like earwax. I like high IBU IPAs and this is not that taste.

F (4) - Nice enough carb and fairly drinkable. No issues here.

O (3.75) - I don't know what it is about OB, but their beers are just off to me. I mean, I don't mind it, but I don't know if I like it as much as others.

Poured from a 16oz Tallboy can.

Appearance is pale orange with 2 inch head. Lacy head remains.

Smells resiny, floral with high malt character.

Taste is a little off. Very heavy on the malt side. Not too unlike Dale's Pale Ale other than extra booze.

Feel lingers, very resiny, citrus characters.

This one is a little frustrating...I like Oskar Blues, but both Dale's Pale Ale and Deviant Dale's were dissapointing. This one drinks ok, but may land slightly above average for me.
