Brewery: Knee Deep Brewing Company
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: 50 IBUs
Brewer Description: (from can) This is a true West Coast IPA. A restrained malt profile of American 2-Row, German Wheat and a touch of English Crystal give the beer it’s golden straw color and allows the hops to shine. Mosaic, Simcoe and Columbus hops provide dank aromas and flavors of tropical fruit and pine leading to a refreshing dry finish.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 20th July 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A clear golden colour with a just over two finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet biscuit malt, pineapple, pine, melon, mandarin peel and tea leaves.
Taste: Considering the aroma, tastes seems to be a bit lacking. Biscuit malt, light to moderate bitterness, pine, grass, light tropical fruit.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok. Aroma was great, but taste just didn’t quite match up to it as some of the nice fruit aromas just didn’t translate.
