If you look up "Slomo" or "Slow Mo Mission Beach" you can read about the retired neurologist the beer is named for. The label shows a hideous cartoon demon, but the background is a photo of Pacific Beach on the boardwalk.

The beer pours a clear yellow with plenty of foam in the Crooked Line tulip. Sparkly mouthfeel with a slightly acidic tang. Aromatic with zingy lemon peel and guava. Some hints of malt and crackers. Stoned Wheat thins to be exact. The piney, woody notes follow and the finish is slightly bitter. Overall this has enough hops and bitterness to be in the IPA ballpark. Aftertaste gets more astringent and stemmy, marring the pleasure somewhat. The 12 oz can is dated 09/24/2018 on the bottom ring.

12 oz can. Pours clear dark gold with a medium creamy white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malt with piney, resiny, dank hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts and a little fruit with piney, resiny, slightly metallic, bitter hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice IPA.

Copper with lots of carbonation , and 2 fingers of off white head.

Huge aromas of strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, pine and green leaf.

Tastes of orange citrus melon, blueberry bubble gum, pine, green herb, and caramel.

Medium body that is highly carbonated.

Got in Sacramento, drinking in Redding, Nov 29th, 2018. Excellent single hop brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is a mix of pine, some floral smells, as well as a moderately strong smell of tropical fruits. Along with these aromas comes some notes of berry and a little bit of a bready smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a tropical fruit flavor that has a nice bready base. Upfront the hop flavor is mainly of a grapefruit nature that has some other hop tastes of herb and grass. As the taste advances some graininess joins the taste profile along with more grass and hay. The fruitiness really falls away at the end of the taste, and with the increase in grapefruit hop, one is left with a seeming moderately diversely hoppy (for a single hop brew) taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average side in terms of thickness and chewiness with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. For the taste profile it is pretty decent and make for a rather easy drinking brew.

Overall – An alright IPA overall. Easy to drink, not too sweet, not too hoppy, but also not too out of the ordinary. A nice try, but nothing all that fantastic.

Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 10/5/18; into a pub glass.
Appearance- clear, bright gold with a tremendous storm of bubbles holding a thick, foamy white head; leaves rings of sticky lacing!
Smell- freshly mowed grass, pine and hints of citrus fruit.
Taste- fruit flavors are more at the forefront with passion fruit and grapefruit holding any grass and pine at bay!
Feel- light medium body, easy to drink with just the right amount of bitterness on the palate!
Overall- quality ipa, that plays it safe, but does it well with out over thinking it!

Canned on 9/5/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with great transparency; white head that fades leaving solid retention and lacing. The mosaic hops come through in the aromas, but they're on the subtle side. Some berries. Some bread and crackers. Some malts. The flavors are crisp and refreshing. Lots of fresh grass. More cracker notes. Subtle hints of tropical fruits. Moderate bitterness. Malts seem to take a backseat. Finishes clean and dry. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with sharp active carbonation. It's pretty smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid IPA. I personally don't put it up there with some of Knee Deep's acclaimed hoppy beers, but it's still solid. It's a clean, crisp, sharp and refreshing brew. Not bad at all.

A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a deak golden coor with a 1 inch head. Smell is of pine, some tropical fruits. Taste is dank, pine, a bit of citrus, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but I was expecting a bit more.

Picked up a 6 pack of this stuff from the Speedway gas station in Fallon, NV (best selection in town btw). Pours a lighter than average yellow with very slight haze and a 1/3" white head. The aroma pops hard on the Mosaic, really good, did the ol' head jerk back like oh fug yes here we go boys. All the juicy dank tropical fruit notes going on. Humid tropical jungle flava flav in the nose.

The taste is simple crushability. Is this a smash beer? The super light toasted 2 row (a guess) seems so out of the way and light, while the Mosaic hop just satiates the hop thirst big time, just waves of that juicy tropical dankness along the lines of your favorite herbal skunk as well. Lots of greenery to this one, pine being the lesser aspect of it.

This is a real good beer with almost no fanfare/hype behind it. I mean sure, Knee Deep's dumb ass mascot isn't exactly the elite marketing on the level of DeBeers Mines, but damn, the stuff inside the can sure is good. At $2 a can, all the hazebois are free to keep paying $4-5 for their tallboys in line. I'm good with this.

Pours golden, with a slightly unfiltered appearance. Minimal head.

Smell is led by fresh pine, with floral notes, and a subdued tropical fruit presence

Taste has the astringent bitterness of pine tar

Finely carbonated, crisp, dry, with a pleasant lingering hop bitterness

Can dated 04/27/2018, Consumed today! The is an awesome west coast style 100% mosaic hop ipa. Crisp clean dry and light fruit. Clear golden color, spotted lacing and white head! Overall I will definitely have this again when I can (no pun intended), because it was super refreshing and a perfect balance of cracker malts and mosaic hops!
