Sweet jebus, this is a great beer.
The nose, the palate...

Hoppy but not nauseating astringent.
Great sweetness along with high ABV.
This should be a sipper, but nope, half a bomber was gone in 30 min.

Is it the new Pliny? Idunno...Pliny's well balanced. this is more emphatic, more resinous, thicker in the palate. But I like it more than Pliny.

Yes, call me a sinner.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Clean white head with medium froth and density. The head is persistent and clingy.
S - Hoppy, piney, sweet, and grassy.
T - Hoppy, piney, sweet, syrupy, and earthy. For me this beer has a light backend surge. Whatever that means...
M - Full, heavy, and sappy.
O - For me this beer was heavy and unrefined. I think it could use some work and be cleaned up a little. Something is holding this back from being something very worthwhile. A little tweak could push this over the top.

This one is becoming much easier to find now. The local Costco is now carrying it as is Bel aire supermarkets. This stuff is really good.I would put it in my top 5 favorites. I still havent made it up to Auburn but I am looking foreward to getting this fresh from the tap and trying a few others from Knee Deep.
