COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that you’ll never forget. We’re setting our standards high on this one. Our goal is to go head to head with the leading DIPA’s and come out on top!
Admin Note: Look for a black label.

Dark amber pour with a smallish white head. The aroma is juicy citrus hop with some evergreen and caramel biscuit. The flavor holds some spicy earthen evergreen, more citrus, and a nice bready malt character. The palate is medium for the style, with low carbonation and a soft mouthfeel.

22 oz bottle shared with oteyj. Copper pour with a decent white head. Aroma holds some dank evergreen hop mixed with grapefruit and wet grass. Flavor combines an interesting herbal note marked with sage/tarragon with earthy pine presence. Somewhat light, not a great bitter finish for a DIPA. Decent, not great.

So I am entering this beer here. 22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget Market in Davis, CA. The label on this is black, and it clearly states that it is 8.0% ABV. This is different than the label on ratebeer.com that is listed for Knee Deep IPA. This beer is also brewed at Sudwerk in Davis, CA, according to the label. The aroma is a bit floral, herbal, and citrus with hints of cleanser present. Fairly straight forward. Transparent orange body with a medium off-yellowish head that has good retention. Starts with some citrus grapefruity hops, before this becomes a little toasted and burnt in the middle. Pretty thin, and seems to lack a malt backbone. There is definitely some booze here later, which is poorly hidden by some herbal hop flavors. A little thin, harsh, boozy, and rough around the edges.
