3.58/5 rDev -2.2%
picked up at total wine this morning. bomber to snifter, no freshness date
pours a very dark amber, one of the darkest ipas I've ever seen with a finger of head which has died down into a thin lace in the time it took me to search this beer and start writing my review.
smells pretty good. strong hops, grape fruit, pine, with citrus undertones coming through at the end. alcohol and mild malts are also faintly present.
taste of almost pure hop with a light roasted after taste. many of the fruits in the smell don't translate well in the taste, not that I don't love the taste of over powered hops, there's not much complexity going on with the taste. very bitter, very drinkable
mouth feel is up to par. at 75 ibus the bomb of hops spikes on your palate. mild carbonation, goes down smooth and creamy. again, very drinkable
I have pretty mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand I love a strong over hopped ipa, however when all there are are hops, it makes the beer bland and uninteresting. If you're looking for a kick in the mouth I'd recommend it, and though I plan to buy it again it probably wont be in the near future. It is however a nice homage to the glorious hop

This is easliy the best Knee Deep beer I have tried....not sayin a whole lot.Poured into an imperial nonic a somewhat dull medium golden with a tight formed half finger white head that settled slowly into a frothy mass.Sharp citric hops along with a pretty intense vine-like note,a little booze thrown in.Fuller creamy body to the beer,leafy and citric hops over top of a tasty lightly sweet malt base,the body is the best part of the flavor profile in my mind.There is good hop complexity on the palate,the chinooks give off a real nice sharp/spicy element, and the body is fantastic,much better than I expected.

A- Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden amber color with a nice off-white head.
S- The aroma is sweet buttery malt with some citrusy hops.
T- The taste like the aroma has a good amount of malt up front with some bitterness in the finish from the hops. This IPA is definitely on the more balanced side compared to some of the more one dimensional IPAs out there.
M- The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
O- Overall, this is a decent IPA but nothing I would purchase again.

Poured minimal head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice mixture of pine and lemon.
The taste is sweet malt with moderate bitterness coming in second. Finishes with a dry bitter.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A nice drink, but a little on the sweet side.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Nice aroma of citrus rind, pinapple and piney hops. Flavor follows aroma, grapefruit and citrus rind, with pine and a hint of herbal hops, finishing with a strong, lingering hop bitterness. A slightly sweet malt base supports the hops well. Perhaps a bit astringent in the finish, but again well supported by fresh hops flavor. Medium bodied with a nice mouth feel. Nicely integrated and well made IPA.

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. No freshness date.
A- Pours a light copper color with a 1/4 inch head that retains slightly before degrading to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and powdery surface foam. Nice clots of lacing.
S- Intense citrus nose with notes of pineapple, grapefruit and pear. Also some toffee-like malt sweetness. Quite amazing.
T- Fruit doesn't come through as much in the flavor. Mainly just grassy hops with some residual metallic taste. Still pretty nice but nothing compared to the aroma. Alcohol is relatively mild. The bitterness sinks in its teeth and doesn't let go leaving an aftertaste that's tight on the palate.
M- Once again, tight and a bit dry. Medium carbonation and a balanced body.
O- First beer I've ever had from these guys. Had never heard of them until they got added to the "Brewery Direct" program at my local Total Wine & More. Not the best IPA I've ever had, but I don't regret the purchase since it was only $4.99 for a 22 oz. bottle.

Clear dark amber colored beer with a small white colored head. This is so dark it is quite close to brown.
Complex smell. Sweet and fruity and I had a hard time identifying it, the smell of Passion Fruit. Little bit of a tobacco aroma here. Little bit of grapefruit but not much, this is a tropical scented IPA.
Starts out sweet and woody with a sharp bitter finish. One of the sweeter IPAs. Tastes of tea and wood and bitterness.
Mouthfeel is OK.
Overall a disappointment. Smells great tastes weak.
