Another great beer from Oskar Blues, Deviant Dale’s India Pale Ale is up for the taste test next! I’ve had high hopes for this one, so let’s find out!
Pours a dark orange with a good tan head that lasted and left thick lacing.
Sweet thick malts are balanced with a very pronounced earthy, pungent hops aroma and some alcohol.
The taste is very nice. Sweet malts are everywhere, there’s a nice caramel malt and fruity backbone. Hops flavors are earthy, piney, resinous and pungent. Balance is nice but is a little towards the sweet malty side.
Body is pretty thick yet drinkable almost like a pale ale. Bitterness is not that high for a IIPA. Finish is sweet malts and resinous hops.
It’s a very tasty beer, and absolutely wonderful for fishin’ in its 16 oz can packaging!
A little pricey but I’m not at all disappointed. Cheers to Oskar Blues!
