A: clear gold body, a full head of tainted ivory left laces down the glass

S: sweet candied fruits and flowers, citric and resinous, but definitely sweet, like with honey and caramel

T: sweet pale fruits, citric and resinous, with a muted bitterness that crept up and enveloped the tongue

M: medium-to-light-feeling, a little bit of stickiness, smooth and slick - drinks quick and easy - dangerous at this abv

O: really nice quadruple IPA (?) - barleywine strong but very lean, albeit sweeter than I'd normally go for - good drinking - recommended for big pale ale drinkers with a tooth for sweetness and high abv...

APPEARANCE - 1-finger head that dissipates. Light, clear. Tons of lacing.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, fruit, sweet.

TASTE - Hops, pine. ABV unbelievably well-hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Good carbonation, dry, lingering, light, effervescent, crisp, acidic, refreshing.

VALUE - $12 for a 10-oz glass. Pricey for domestic draft.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - This is the first Quadrupel Imperial IPA I've tasted. Yet another hophead masterpiece from Knee Deep.

Fantastic! I’m not usually a fan of IPA’s but this was superb. Not at all what I expected. The slogan on the bottle is: “Borders on insanity.” When I took my first sip, I literally said “This is Crazy!” If you see this beer, Buy It! Forget about the abv, taste makes this beer.

On draft at Loosa Brews, Tuscaloosa.
Kegged 04/04/19, 12.5%.

Bright golden pour, with soft, consistent head that settles to about a quarter inch above the beer and leaves pretty heavy lace retention all around the inside of the glass.

Lots of dank hops on the nose, piney/earthy predominantly. Decent malt bill rounds it out nicely.

Sharply bitter and hoppy flavors, but a distinctly sweet malt presence as well. The two combine and balance fairly well, but those pithy hops definitely showcase here. Pretty straightforward, malty/hoppy/boozy.

Smooth, sticky, resinous as hell. Low but sharp carbonation and very boozy going down. Hop bitterness lingers.

These guys at Knee Deep know my sweet spot. Super hoppy, bitter with a malt backbone and a tinge of sweetness at the end. This is an outstanding quadruple IPA. I'm a Knee Deep fan for life!
