A bottle left over after GABF judging and given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Pours a two finger tan head over a clear red-copper liquid. Smells piney and resin waxy. Lemon, pith, clean alcohol, baby aspirin, and green onion.

Tastes yummy. Nice balance between hop flavor, clean hop bitter, clean alcohol sting, and malty sweetness that's non-descript, but wets just enough. Hop flavor is oranges, green onion, pine, and pith. Very resiny. Esters are tropical fruits, such as pineapple. Malt has no distinct flavor, though works well as a general sweet with the hop flavors, esters, and cutting down the hop bitter. Hop bitter has decent grassiness that works peaks with alcohol burn plays well with the sharp hop flavors. Has a nice creaminess in the mouth. Drying grassy aftertaste. Moderate carbonation. No problem putting away the bomber; I could drink more.

A - Pours a fairly clear amber-orange with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of pine, floral, and citrus hops with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts.

T - Starts off with grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of pine and grapefruit hops with some sweet caramel and bready malts.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice IPA with a good malt and hop balance and a nice hop profile.

A nice beer shared a rate beer tasting.

This beer has a great nose, and that's what I liked the most: tons of dry fresh grass hops and citrus, totally an awesome west coast ipa in the smell. The taste has a nice grassy dry feel too, almost drinks like a pils, but it didn't explode with hops like the nose suggested, but it was still a very nice beer. The taste actually has some honey like sweetness to it too. The feel has a nice bitter finish, a good sparkle over the mid palate of hops and sweetness, a touch of baguette.

Overall a nice beer, it wouldnt be hard to take down a pint of this!

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a light copper color with a 1/4 inch head that retains slightly before degrading to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and powdery surface foam. Nice clots of lacing.

S- Intense citrus nose with notes of pineapple, grapefruit and pear. Also some toffee-like malt sweetness. Quite amazing.

T- Fruit doesn't come through as much in the flavor. Mainly just grassy hops with some residual metallic taste. Still pretty nice but nothing compared to the aroma. Alcohol is relatively mild. The bitterness sinks in its teeth and doesn't let go leaving an aftertaste that's tight on the palate.

M- Once again, tight and a bit dry. Medium carbonation and a balanced body.

O- First beer I've ever had from these guys. Had never heard of them until they got added to the "Brewery Direct" program at my local Total Wine & More. Not the best IPA I've ever had, but I don't regret the purchase since it was only $4.99 for a 22 oz. bottle.

Aroma is very strong and very hoppy, with a firm overtone of grapefruit and sour orange. It pours a dark coppery amber with a fairly thick off-white head that leaves some good lacing. Strongly hoppy flavor has grapefruit and orange notes plus a hint of malt and not too much bitterness. Fizzy texture has good body and leaves a nice hoppy tingle.

On-tap 12/11/2016 at Stevie D’s Tavern in East Providence, RI, served in a tulip pint glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains strong fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong fruity citrus sweetness that is quickly followed by a strong but not over-powering floral hops bitterness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to drink for a while.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Nice aroma of citrus rind, pinapple and piney hops. Flavor follows aroma, grapefruit and citrus rind, with pine and a hint of herbal hops, finishing with a strong, lingering hop bitterness. A slightly sweet malt base supports the hops well. Perhaps a bit astringent in the finish, but again well supported by fresh hops flavor. Medium bodied with a nice mouth feel. Nicely integrated and well made IPA.

This is easliy the best Knee Deep beer I have tried....not sayin a whole lot.Poured into an imperial nonic a somewhat dull medium golden with a tight formed half finger white head that settled slowly into a frothy mass.Sharp citric hops along with a pretty intense vine-like note,a little booze thrown in.Fuller creamy body to the beer,leafy and citric hops over top of a tasty lightly sweet malt base,the body is the best part of the flavor profile in my mind.There is good hop complexity on the palate,the chinooks give off a real nice sharp/spicy element, and the body is fantastic,much better than I expected.
