4.79/5  rDev +11.7%

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.

New Mexico

4.86/5  rDev +13.3%

Poured from a 22oz bomber bottled on 2/25/13, into a Duvel tulip

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with about a a finger and a half of dense white head that dissipates to a cap of foam that resides til the end.

Smell: Juicy, resinous hops. A little bit catty and a lot of tropical fruits, as well as a nice kiss of malt sweetness coming though.

Taste: Delicious, juicy, piney, catty, and tropical fruit hop flavors punch you in the mouth while riding on a wave of bitterness. Towards the back you get a slight alcohol warmth as well as a subtle, sweet breadiness coming from the heavy malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: Perfectly crisp and dry with a very pleasant medium bodied mouthfeel.

Overall: Simply an amazing hop assault on the tastebuds. A shining example of a DIPA/IIPA.
