I recently got to take a tour of Oskar Blues and I was picking the tour guide's brain about some of the ingredients in Deviant Dale's IPA, (which is amazing if you haven't had it before.)

I learned at Oskar Blues they use exclusively California Ale yeast, and another interesting fact is that they ferment at 67 degrees. I have been reading a lot about fermenting at lower temperatures, but I think for my IPA's from now on, I'll use that yeast at that temp.

Lastly, he told me that in DD, they use only Columbus hops, or Zeus hops for dry hopping only, even though they are apparently identical.

So I have a recipe that I am going to make and see if I can get close. I also saw a lot of special roast and 2-row malt, so I assume those are involved in the beer. Just thought I'd share this for any other Deviant fans out there that wanna try to clone.

You had me a Deviant Dales....

Seriously awesome brew. The lingering bitter over the malt is just amazing. keep us updated on your progress.

It's a favorite of mine! Columbus/CTZ is probably my favorite flavor hop.

Let us know how it turns out.

Do you guys have any suggestions on any special roast in there? Or maybe it should just be 2-row and some crystal malt...

Maybe a handful of victory and a handful of C80? I haven't had it in awhile, but I recall it being a pretty deep red.

Yeah, it's not too dark, but it's definitely a copper shade.

Man I had some and I thought it was awful. A bit too sweet, and very grassy, like chewing a hop. And I like pretty hoppy beers. For example I had just had a Green Flash Palate Wrecker and liked that very much. And I'm a big fan of 'regular' Dales, so I had high hopes, but I literally didn't finish the (16 oz) can of the Deviant.

Interesting.... Except the guy at the brewery told me it had ONLY columbus. Just a lot of it. I will try the dark munich though.

Really?? I had the Gubna out of the tap at Oskar Blues and I thought it was really grassy... Too grassy. But the Deviant is just too good, IMO.
