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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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.

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.

Light caramel amber with some orange and a 0.5cm, bubbly white head that stays pretty decent for such a strong beer, leaving some nice lacing too.
Plenty pine hops and tropical fruits on top of a caramel base that hints at some vanilla too. The smell is great with plenty of strength and fruity mix of grapefruit, pineapple and citrus, some floral notes & a subtle hint of alcohol as well.
Tropical fruits but with the caramel and sweet malts coming more to the forefront in the taste. There is a great caramel flavour mixed together with the grapefruit and pineapple I mentioned earlier on the nose. Subtle alcohol & the citrus & pine hops feature heavily.
Smooth, sweet and quite rich with a smooth and medium body that features some stickiness in places. There is some hints of alcohol but the beer is frighteningly easy to drink.
Almost perfect and very probably the best beer I've ever tried (thankfully it has at least limited UK distribution into the bargain). Phenomenal with an amazing taste. I'll be picking this up again the next time I see it anywhere.
