Poured from 12oz can into glass. Canning date stamped on can bottom '12/22/[email protected]:13 SO MUCH SIN ONE LITTLE CAN'.
Hazy, copper body, bone colored head settles to thin cap, lots of lacing.

Brewer's notes: "Deviant Dale’s Imperial IPA (8% ABV, 85 IBUs) was born at the cross roads, in a juke joint, as if Dale’s Pale Ale sold its soul to balance Deviant’s foreboding aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind and piney resins with a copper ball-of-fire color and inscrutable finish. The 2011 Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal Winner (American IPA Category) is the Devil incarnate with untold amounts of malt and hedonistic Columbus dry-hopping."

Piney, citrus aroma, same with taste. Dry finish.
In your face IIPA, ticks all the taste points, solid.

Classic imperial IPA. Good balanced between the resinous and grapefruity hops and the caramel from the malt. The mouthfeel is nice, very smooth with fine carbonation. A good west coast style IIPA

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Mostly clear amber/copper pour. Two fingers of foamy off-white head. Falls fast with sticky lacing around the glass.

S: Rich caramel malts and bread. Sweet and hoppy.

T/F: Follows the nose. Sweet bready malts... caramel and sugars. This largely masks the big bitterness of the beer. Hop profile tends to the resinous and herbal. Some citrus/fruit character... tea and medicinals. Sticky/oily on the tongue. Finish is bitterness and bread. Warming.

O: A nice flavorful DIPA.... almost more like an Imperial Red than an IPA, but no matter how you slice it this is tasty. Lots of big malts and bitter hops. Complex and yummy.

Pours a clear amber body, leaves a film of a white foamy head, super light lacing, aroma is malty hoppiness, taste is bittersweet with a nice added caramel touch, dry aftertaste and finish, its pretty easy on the palate as it could be pretty good with a meal, overall, not a bad AIPA, worthy of many more pours, but nothing to really go out of my way to have again.

Poured from can into tulip, monster 2+ finger lightish tan head, great retention and lacing. Crystal clear reddish amber in the glass. Great looking beer. Smells of crystal malt, heavy malt aroma, dankish pine hops. Taste, heavy earthy dank hops up front, pine peaks out in the middle with some slight citrus. Finish is on the semi dry side. Mouthfeel is viscous and syrupy in a good way. No alcohol detected

Dark orange beer with a sticky off white to tan head. Tons of lacing. Smells like pine and overripe citrus with a sweet malt smell. Taste is bitter and sweet with tons of citrus and pine. Very tasty beer.
