(Longmont, CO, Brevard, NC & Austin, TX) – It’s said that the devil is in the details and Oskar Blues Brewery‘s 2017 Deviant Dale’s Imperial IPA is no different. Oskar Blues has limited this beer to a three month seasonal offering, January through March, to take advantage of a small quantity of meticulously hand-selected hops. The beer is brewed immediately upon hop delivery to provide the optimal flavor the beer demands.
Deviant is a mix of Centennial and dry-hopped Columbus. The focus here is the freshness of these bad boys. We get ’em fresh. You drink ’em fresh.
“Elevated levels of malt and hops, with heaps of Columbus dry-hopping make Deviant Dales IPA a robust dark amber hoppy treat,” said Head of Brewing Operations, Tim Matthews. “Candy caramel, strawberry, citrus, and that signature dankness get twisted together in aroma and flavor. Challenging and assertive bitterness, with tons of malt backbone make this one a classic.”
The Oskar Blues Breweries in Longmont, Brevard, and now Austin will host a trio of release events in late December and early January. This will be the first time each facility will brew batches and release the same beer together.

- December 31st, 2016 – Oskar Blues Brewery Austin – ATX’s FuhCAN NYE Party! (draft only release)
- January 6, 2017 – Oskar Blues Brewery North Carolina – Draft release and to-go cans available
Deviant Dale’s has won a slew of awards, including a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival in the American-style IPA category and a score of 99 from Rate Beer.
