Let me preface this review with the disclaimer that I am becoming somewhat of a Knee Deep Brewing fanboy; I enjoy all their beers, actively seek out their special releases, and base my festival attendance on whether or not Knee Deep will be there. On to the review...

Served from a 22 ounce bomber into a tulip glass.

The best way to describe the color of this beer is to have you imagine walking down the plumbing aisle at your favorite hardware store. In that aisle you will undoubtedly notice the assortment of beautiful copper tubing. Imagine that copper tubing is completely transparent with small little bubbles running through it. That is the color of this beer.

For the aroma we have to teleport to a farmers' market on Kauai. You enter the market, some woman in a grass skirt puts a ring of flowers around your neck and you approach a booth peddling tropical fruit, picked that morning, sliced open for your visual and olfactory pleasure. We are getting close to how this beer smells!

The first thing you notice when you sip this beer is that the emphasis is on hop flavor, not bitterness. The tropical hop flavors dance merrily with a hint of malt sweetness before they rush down your throat. This is how all double IPAs should taste!

Cheers!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Poured brown with a touch of amber, the head was foamy and quickly disappeared.
S - Citrus, mostly tropical fruit.
T - Grapefruit, pine, tropical like the nose and carmel and bitter throughout. The malt sneaks in as the beer warms.
M - Medium body and carbonation that leads to a malty smooth finish.
O - Good double IPA. I would like more hops? If that's possible with this one.
