Oskar Blues 'Deviant Dale’s' IPA

Oskar Blues Brewing 'Deviant Dale's' IPA. 8% abv. 85 IBU. Amber copper color with cream colored head that falls to a sustaining ring. Good retention with nice clingy lace. Malty, hoppy nose. Deep hop flavor, like a DIPA, with a big hop bite up front. Aftertaste coats the tongue with a balance of hops and almost sugary malt. Medium body. Mouthfeel is warm, herbal, slightly creamy from the small-bead carb. This is a wonderful brew that I'd love to have again. Highly recommend. I love the canned treasures coming out of this brewery.

From the brewery:

"Deviant Dale’s IPA was born at the crossroads, 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, its copper ball-of-fire color and inscrutable flavor-intense finish. Deviant is the Devil incarnate with untold amounts of malt and hedonistic Columbus dry-hopping. Oskar Blues delivers this boundary-buster in the brewery’s first 16-ounce tallboy can."
