3.85/5 rDev -3.8%
these just hit town, and fresh is best...enjoyed from a beer hunter session glass.
brew pours rich, but transparent orange amber, thin foamy top that didn't hang out, left patches of lace on the glass.
nose is the highlight. rich ripe tropical fruit. squishy resinous grapefruit. some alc sweetness at the tail.
BOOM. slap in the face with a dense resinous, yet fruity hop. grapefruity pine, fresh ripe tropical fruit.
mouth is fairly full. big and chewy. you can feel the heat and it leaves a tingle.
really nice and fresh resinous, but still fruity and not just a bitter bomb. worth checking out.

4/5 rDev 0%
A: medium amber and clear, couple of fingers-worth of pale tan head; some lace down the glass
S: bright citrus and flowers, some sweet chewy grain beneath
T: crisp and tight - lotsa of pale fruit and hop flower, subtle malts underscore
M: tight and tingly, some edge from the alcohol and the hops, medium-light body, ample carbonation
O: another nice DIPA and another real good brew from Knee Deep - fans of pales, IPAs, DIPAs and the lot would be well-advised to grab a bottle at some point.

4.5/5 rDev +12.5%
Pours golden/orange, medium head.
Smell of pine is very strong, some citrus.
Taste is off the charts, lots of bitterness but balanced well with citrus. A little boozey on the finish. Very fresh and surprisingly refreshing for a TIPA with 11%.
If you love strong IPAs, with tons of booze and citrus bitterness this is it. Doesn't get much better than Hop Shortage. Tastes even better from the taproom! This beer is slightly better than Simtra in my opinion, seems more balanced.
