From notes 9/2/12: Pours a hazy coppery orange producing 3 fingers of foamy, variously bubbled, lasting, light tan/off-white head that leaves a nice coating of chunky lace. Aroma is sweet camel malt, cotton candy, butter and vanilla hints. Hops in the nose are floral, pine and some citrus. Taste is butter, caramel, with grapefruit and resinous pine rapidly kicking in but reaching an equilibrium with caramel and candy apple in the mid-sip through a buttery and bitter cedar wood finish. The sweetness is rapidly overtaken by the dry and bitter cedar aftertaste.

A bit on the dark side, very caramelly, then malty, then hops. ABV pops up way back in the finish, a lot of warmth in the gullet. Nice small beige creamy head, aroma is on the malty side. Fairly smooth, and tasty.

12 ounce can into a tulip snifter. Bottled 1/24/17, had 4/3/17.

Pours a medium amber, fairly clear, with a big two inch foamy head and a good amount of foamy lacing. The smell is citrus- grapefruit, pine, malt, caramel, toffee, some yeast. The taste starts with pine, then more citrus than the nose- grapefruit and orange, caramel, malt, a decent amount of hop bitterness throughout. Little bit of a sweet note on the finish. Smooth, well carbonated, a little creamy, a solid medium body.

A solid malt backbone supports an expressive hop presence. Really good flavor and balance.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Canning date stamped on can bottom '12/22/16@8:13 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.
