3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Moriartys. Slightly hazy yellow amber pour. Soft foamy ring on top. Not much lace. Lots of hops here. Strong oaky resins. Good balance between citrus and earthy/leafy hop flavors. Enough honey sweetness to keep the bitterness in check (mind you your tongue will still burn after multiple glasses of this). Feels big but - for 11.2% - the alcohol is impressively well hidden. Palate feels wider and more subtle than expected. So far, this is the best Knee Deep brew I gave had!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A booze bomb trying to disguise itself with hops. Lots of citrus. Golden pour without much head or lacing. High booze in aftertaste. A little overrated due to imbalance. Tap at blind tiger.

Ganska mild doft men tydlig sådan av tall barr. Smaken fruktig , druvor , torr åh tydligt tall barr. Fin öl som säkert gjort sig bättre i riktiga IPA glas. Hotell rummet hade bara vanliga jävla glas. Hmmm
