I’m going to have to say it at some point, so might as well get it out of the way, this beer is…Deviant, ba dum kssshhh. Not an easy beer to chug, but guess what, I’ll be reaching for another right away. Lot of carbonation and a nice medium – heavy body, but I was able to wrestle it down
How Much: 6
Well, what do ya know? Another Team Chug Stamped beer, another 4-pack alert. Oskar Blues throws this up on shelves for $13.99 per 4-pack. That’s a bit much, but this beer was delicious. Also, they come in tall-boys, so it’s not like you’re paying for 4 12oz’s, you’re getting pounders. That helps make it worth it
Oskar Blues Brewery earned itself another repeat customer with Deviant Dale’s IPA. Dale’s Pale Ale is one of the better pale ale’s I’ve ever had, so you can imagine their IPA has to be delicious as well. It’s as if somebody was playing poker, and the pot was getting huge. Some dude named Dale bet a pretty solid amount of hops, but one bold, deviant player said “I’ll see your hop content, and I’ll double it.” That player is Deviant Dale’s IPA. You’re going to get hit with a huge tidal wave of hops riding on a solid malty citrusy body that will leave you with a lingering hop flavor that you’ll want to keep around for a while…so grab yourself another…Stamped!
Keep your eyes peeled if you live in one of the lucky 25 states that gets to enjoy Deviant Dale’s year round
