Bottled 4/23/2013 - Consumed 5/15/2013

A - Copper colored, a bit darker than most. Definitely filtered, good activity in the glass and solid head and head retention.

S - Grassy and earthy first, Cat piss without any citrus component to add. If 3.0 is "average" I'm being generous here...

T - Like sipping tree bark without any IPA citrus to add.

M - Very clean, Crisp, and pleasantly bitter, but not overly bitter. If there were any more flavor in this beer, the mouthfeel would be great.

O - I'm SOLD on fresh SIMTRA & Hop Shortage. Knee Deep really knows how to brew top notch Triple IPAs without a doubt. GOD DAMN, after gems like those, I've no clue why they've let this beer out in a bottle to represent their art. I had 5 different home brew IPAs from generous campers at Boonville recently, that just blow this one out of the water. In the realm of today's IPA offerings, I'm assuming that I won't revisit this one.

Into a half liter glass. Poured three fingers of head on a clear, dark amber colored body with lots of bubbles.
The aroma is incredible. Lots of bright grapefruit and Meyer lemons.
The taste from start to finish has a solid dry bitterness. It has a little pine and grapefruit. Really dry though.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
This is an IPA straight up without any apologies.
