Light and crisp American ipa. Refreshing to have a beer that's does not taste too strong.

Nonic pint on-tap. Reviewed from notes.

A: Served a clear light golden with an impressive thick foamy off-white head. Solid sheet of fuzzy lace left down glass. Looks great.
S: Pine and grass hops, lightly bready. Caramel and light vegetable quality as well.
T: Grassy hops, pine sap and hop cone resin. Caramely finish along with bread crust and solid bitterness in the aftertaste. Bitter hop resin and pine sap aftertaste mixed with lingering caramel. Malt is too strong for me to love.
M: Greasy mouth, medium body, fairly clean, very soft carb.
O: Not their best IMO. I know this is a regular ipa and not a double but I thought this had too much malt or is an old keg.

I was a little surprised that this was a Knee Deep beer even though I knew it was. The flavor profile didn't seem to match there other IPAs. Not a lot of character, but very resinous and piney. Not their best work, but hey, it'll get you buzzed.
