Deviator DIPA is the first double IPA to be added to 42 North’s well known hazy New England-style IPA series that started two years ago with the Pre-Emption IPA. The new beer features an explosion of juicy New Zealand hops that were never boiled in the kettle making this one of the juiciest, haziest and refreshing DIPAs around. The beer is set to be released on February 29 (12pm) at the taproom in East Aurora, NY in 16oz 4-packs. Starting next week, the beer will also be available around WNY wherever local craft beer is sold.

The new DIPA boasts flavors of fresh melon, coconut and a hint of minty freshness as an
ode to the west coast pine creating a nicely balanced finish. Though deviously light and
refreshing, Deviator will have craft beer lovers fooled that it’s actually a double IPA. ABV
of the Deviator rounds out to 8.75% with an IBU of 70.

Deviator gets its name from the story of the infamous Pre-Emption line mishap while
surveying WNY land to designate the Transit Meridian Line between New York and
Territory Ceded to Massachusetts in 1786. As the story goes, the two degree deviation
from the first false Pre-Emption line to the later corrected line was due to either direct
fraud, faulty instruments or just too much beer in the woods. Like most mysteries, we’ll
never be quite certain.


Deviator Can Release – 2/29, Noon at 42 North Taproom (25 Pine St. East
Aurora, NY 14052)

Retail Availability – Starting 3/2 – Wegmans, Consumers Beverage, Tops,
Independent Bottle Shops around WNY.
