Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s

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!
