L- Pours an amber-red color with a thick head that dissipates to a frothy head.
S- Great. much pine with a little citrus.
T- Heavy on the bitter pine, with much funky dank. Nothing that reaches out and slaps you.
F- Nice. Good balance.
O- Not bad, but was expecting a little more due to the fact of how much I enjoyed Dale's Pale Ale.

Hop bitterness up front, citrus, resiny, herbal, leafy. Deep malt backbone, sweet bread, caramel, toffee, a little buttery. Finish is bitter-sweet, a bit dry. Body is medium, very slick, oily, smooth, refreshing and a bit crisp.

16 oz can poured into a tall tulip glass. A beautiful clear amber color with a huge frothy head that slowly dissipates and leaves some lace. Smell is piney and dank with a little floral herbs. Reminds me of Cannabis. Taste is nicely balanced between big sweet malt, dank floral hoppiness, and bracing bitterness. Mouth feel is a bit thick, nicely carbed, and slightly oily. Overall, a good AIPA.

Part of my beer ratings go as such: "Would I drink it again tomorrow?" For Deviant Dale's I say tomorrow and every day after. Seriously tho, it's what an IPA should be: crisp, refreshing, soothingly bitter, better w/ each sip.

For a strong ipa it went down like a session beer. Aroma-some piney notes, orange peel, grapefruit, some onion/garlic bitterness. Taste was a real surprise. Great mild beer. Citrus after taste. No bitterness at all.

Not much surprising to offer. You know what a strong IPA is like. The characteristics are all here. Simply speaking, I had this on tap, it's one of the best IPA's I've had to date. Very good beer.

Canned 12/03
Drank 12/25

Clear amber body and a long lasting lacy off white head.

Pine, dank, herbal, citrus, seems a little Summity with onion and garlic. Slight caramel malt base comes through.

Medium bodied and bittered. Smooth and carbonation is on point.

Solid IPA and a little different than most I'm used to as it lacks a lot of the fruitiness.
