Oksar Blues, the canning brewer from Colorado is best know for their staple Dale’s Pale Ale, but today I’ve gotten my hands on a Deviant Dale’s IPA. Deviant Dales’ is an American IPA with not so subtle west-coast style influences. The head is light and sticky. and the nose is floral and citrusy. The middle had a ton of pine, bitter and pitchy, which mellows into sweet orange and honey in the finish. This is a very well-balanced and exceptionally tasty IPA. I’ve always enjoyed Dale’s Pale Ale, but this is my new favorite Oskar Blues style.
I give it a 4.6 out of 5.
