Beer of the week: Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s IPA


Beer: Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s IPA

Style: India pale ale

Alcohol: 8 percent by volume

Price: About $15 a four-pack of 16-ounce cans at Total Wine & More

Story: Colorado’s Oskar Blues Brewery opened a satellite brewery this year in North Carolina, meaning fresher beer for South Florida thanks to the shorter travel distance.

Deviant Dale’s is a hopped-up version of the brewery’s flagship Dale’s Pale Ale, both named for brewery founder Dale Katechis. The copper-orange IPA gives off heavy aromas of pine resin, and its bitter-citrus flavors straddle sweet and dry.

Pairing: A tallboy can of Deviant Dale’s would pair well with most of the oozy options from the Daily Melt in Midtown Miami and Coral Springs. I especially like it with a classic bacon melt: The beer’s malt sweetness makes the sandwich’s warm Roma tomatoes taste super fresh.
