A- Stunning! 1 ½ thick head. Lovely amber color, nice clarity. Excellent lacing on the top.

S- I can small the sweet citrus as I write sitting on the couch with the beer two feet away! Pineapple, peach. Very tropical and light. Makes my nose happy!

T- Wonderful! Greatly balanced DIPA. Round mouthfeel, good carbonation. Hoppy but not overwhelming. Very well balanced between the alpha and beta acids. Absolutely has the tropical taste I could smell- pineapple is the most prominent with slight peach in the background. I loved this and will be purchasing for sure—the only problem is I know production has slight supply issues.

Bottle (2013)

Thanks for sharing this with me, Nathan!

Another decent, drinkable IPA from Knee Deep, but nothing special, especially considering what other locals brewers are doing with hoppy beers these days. Some leafy and herbal hop flavors, moderate bitterness, and mild citrus combine well enough. Well crafted, but unexciting and an average San Diego IPA--which is probably still better than most across the country.
