One of the smoothest IPA's I have ever had. Ever.

A little light on the nose. Expected a stronger aroma. Taste has a lot of malt to it. Booze is noticeable. Feel is chewy as one would expect from such a gigantic beer. Overall very good but don't think it stands out among Knee Deep's big DIPA lineup.

Super clear golden liquid. Large white head and and decent lacing.

Nose has lots of sweet malt and a strong but not over the top hoppiness. A hit of mint and leafy fresh hop cones. Just a whiff of alcohol, surprising considering the abv.

Taste is also a surprise. Sweet mellow, malty and very well hopped but not abrasively. Balance is the word over and over again. Finish is clean and short, with a lingering trace od minty hops.

Feel is supple and lightly creamy, smooth and highly drinkable. This goes down like a session ale, unbelievable.

Just fantastic. A superb brew that drinks like and IPA and hides the alcohol like magic. If you have time for only one beer and need to feel like you had two or three, crack open of these.

Hard to describe why, but the flavor was just off. Not very balanced. Just different hops battling it out.
