3.98/5 rDev -1.2%
Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Pint.
Appearance: Clear, light amber with moderate white head and nice lacing.
Smell: Citrusy, with both orange and grapefruit. Some toasted and caramel malts. Somewhat sweet aroma.
Taste: Malts are evident at first, somewhat on the sweet side, with caramel and toasted malts. Very citrusy hops, but not too much bitterness.
Feel: Moderate carbonation with a fairly smooth and creamy body. However, the finish is not quite dry enough for my preferences, but is not a major distraction.
Overall: Comes across as a somewhat typical IPA but one on the sweeter side of the spectrum. Still quite delicious.

Oskar Blues Deviant Dale IPA
Appearance: Poured into the glass, gorgeous thick, full, fluffy head topped this murky caramel brew. Sad there's not more clarity, and the head retention was kind of a let down.
Smell: Definitely an IPA. Nice sweet malt balanced with the citrus and pine I have come to expect from a good IPA. But the scent seems as though it has been restrained somehow.
Taste&Mouthfeel: Oh wow! Super amazing taste! From the appearance and smell I never would have thought I could rate the taste so highly! Nice full body, with the slightly sweet malt to the forefront of the taste. On the middle of the tongue hints the tropical fruits, apricot, peach, lemon zest, and pine from the hops- this beer is ever so refreshing and delicious! Great carbonation, balance, and overall taste.
Overall: Worth every penny, truly a great IPA to sit and enjoy!

4.04/5 rDev +0.2%
A: Pours a dark amber with a fair amount of off-white head. A somewhat solid layer retains, leaving good lacing.
S: Sweet grassy floral hops, with light grain.
T: Lightly sweet, with a nice underlying floral sweet note throughout. It becomes a touch more bitter as the hops come out through the middle and to the finish, but remains a sweet note underneath.
M: Medium to full body, medium carbonation.
Overall, quite a nice IPA, and nice to have it in a can.

4.58/5 rDev +13.6%
A - Very dark orange, almost red. Poured a two finger, light khaki, head. Lots of big bubbles and the head faded pretty quickly leaving a nice ring of lace.
S - Lots of orange and lemon. Very citrusy and pretty aroma. Smells like it's going to be very smooth and not have a lot of hop bite.
T - Just as I suspected, very smooth. Not an astringent hop flavor, but the hops make themselves very present. Very drinkable for an 8% IPA.
M - Decent carbonation and a sweet aftertaste that lingers. Very pleasant.
O - One of the best IPA's I've had in a while. Great showing from a great brewer.
