Not quite as clean and crisp as the Lupulin, a hint spicier and pinier. Less dry. Solid beer.

Knee Deeps IPAs are pretty kind to me. I havent had a bad one yet. Hoptologist pours yellow with white suds. Dank aromatics with cannabis, damp pine needles, and flowers. It tastes like earth - grass, trees, and leaves. Toward the finish theres some fruity sweetness in the forms of tangerine and orange marmalade. Thick, chewy feel. The 9% ABV is completely hidden. The 102 IBUs are certainly not hidden. Finishes dry and mostly crisp. Lovely.
