The pour yields a golden amber color with nice clarity and a fluffy white head. The nose very floral with tangy citrus hops. I couldn't stop smelling it.
The taste explodes with tangy fruity notes. I get apricots, apples and plenty of citrus. Hoppy as hell with a subtle bitter finish. The malts really cut down on the bite and the alcohol is really well hidden for 11%. It really stays away from the barley wine feel.

Overall an excellent double ipa. Best I've had from knee deep so far.

Clear amber color with a thick head with short retention but leaving laces.
Delicious aroma with predominant notes of passion fruit, grapefruit, pineapple and pine.
Bitter flavor with notes of grapefruit, caramel and slightly toasted malts, spices, American yeast, sweet tangerines, lots of resin and mango. Quite dry aftertaste with a long bitterness.
Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation with tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 11.1% is well hidden.
Excellent DIPA, solid malt base that is offset by its 122 IBUs that carries good hop complexity.
