Default Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s

God I love living in Colorado!!!
This beer is a hop heads wet dream!

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is intended to be a sensory assault for hop lovers. At 8.0% ABV, four hop additions during the brew process, and a final wallop of excessive Columbus dry-hopping, this beer is meant to say one thing: MORE HOPS! Perfect for these cool winter nights, The Deviant is a returning favorite from the little brewery in Lyons, Colorado that started the Canned Revolution!

__________________
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Drinking one right now. The Columbus dry hop makes the room smell like hops when you crack one open. The best part is that they come in tall boys

I love their other brews. Going to my drinking hole in a few to try to find some.

I just picked up a couple of 4-packs at Super Liquor Mart at Pierce and Coal Mine. $12.95 a 4-pack and worth every penny.

The dry hop of Columbus is a 2X4 to your nose and tongue. Pliny the Elder is a serious but subtle hop attack. DD is a blunt instrument.

The cans I have were filled on 02/22/12. I am sure this over the top hop will diminish with any kind of age. Run out and grab some now!

I had maybe a third of a can last night, and I gotta say this was one of the weirdest tasting beers I've ever had. I had just had a bottle of Hoptimum before I tried the DD's, so maybe my problems were due to palate wreckage and a clash of flavors, but the DD's almost tasted like it was massively oxidized or something. I wasn't even sure it was beer at first. I guess I'll have to try it again. I got it from the cooler @ Mile High in Lakewood, so I don't think it was a storage issue.

I did a review of this the other day: http://www.bear-flavored.com/2012/03...pa-review.html . Really enjoyed it, very Columbus-y and earthy and dank. I had a few cans while hiking in the Catskills, and it was the most appropriate beers I can imagine drinking outdoors. Like licking a mountain.
