Oskar Blues Deviant Dale's IPA

I went to Al’s of Hampden on a Friday night with some friends and I ordered a glass of Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s IPA. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy white colored head. The aroma consists of pine, resin, skunk (the animal), sticky oil, and lemon. The taste is sticky and bitter with lots of hop oils and resins, lemon, orange, and a peppery dry finish. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. I thought this was a really good beer and I would go back to this in a heartbeat. For comparison, my buddy ordered the cask version of this beer, and I thought the cask killed the bitterness and hid the resinous nature of the beer, so I’d recommend sticking with the original.
