Pure and simple, if you have never tried Pliny the Younger, this is the closest you can get w/o traveling to Santa Rosa or waiting in a ridiculous line. On the Westcoast this beer was highly coveted a year ago; now you can readily find it on the shelf. It's a no-brainer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: This sexy brew pours a beautifully hazy, copper body with a one finger head. This degree of retention is rare

Smell: It smells like Christmas trees in a bottle. Grapefruit and pineapple can also be noticed but the pine aroma really shines through. Seriously, you can smell this baby from a few feet across the room. This is godly for a hop head and quite possibly the best smelling DIPA I’ve ever had.

Taste: Hops, hops, and more hops. Pine and fresh grapefruits are complimented by a sweet malt flavor on the back of the tongue.

Mouth feel: It is thick, oily, and sticky with a great amount of carbonation to prepare the palate for the hop explosion in the next sip.

Overall: This is one of the best double (triple?) IPAs I’ve ever had. Thanks to Knee Deep Brewing Company for this gem.
