Fresh on-tap.

A: Pours a clear golden with a finger of greasy off white head. Streaks of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Extremely dank and fruity nose. Smells like weed with a hint of peach and tropical fruit. Incredible nose.
T: Flavor is full of fruity and juicy hops, tangerine, grapefruit, and slight mint in the finish. Finishes sweet and very smooth. Incredible and impressive.
M: Very smooth and slick mouthfeel and medium-full body with a velvety chew to it. Smooth and soft carbonation. How much alcohol is in this, because it doesn’t feel like a double digit beer. Drinks incredibly well, super smooth with no booze.
O: So smooth and easy to drink. One of the best ipas I've had in recent memory. Alcohol is hidden extremely well.

This not for the faint of heart beer starts with a big grassy nose with a hint of mint over malt and grain aromas with light fruit.
It pours brilliant gold with a ½” quickly dissipating off-white foam cap that is quickly roused. It produces fine lace and some legs.
The beer looks deceptively mild but that illusion quickly disappears as the glass approaches your mouth. The beer attacks the palate with spicy cola, vanilla, melon, and malt flavors that slowly diminish under a barrage of hop and alcohol flavors. The bitterness reminds me of the kind of bitterness you find in a gin and tonic while the alcohol suggests bourbon.
Each element in this beer – malt, yeast driven flavors, hops and alcohol is huge but they are all amazingly in balance.

I think I like this better than Hop Shortage. These guys at Knee Deep know my sweet spot. Super hoppy, bitter with a a malt backbone and a tinge of sweetness at the end. To me it's near perfect, the 13+ %ABV doesn't hurt. This is an outstanding quadruple IPA. I'm a Knee Deep fan for life!
