Knee Deep Brewing Co. Knee Deep Lupulin River
What the brewers say
“This Double IPA includes Mosaic and Simcoe hops, South American specialty malt, and tons of tastiness. Looks like liquid gold, smells like a bright tropical fruit pine forest, and tastes like all that and more.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Dank and resinous with some complex citrus notes of orange and grapefruit Malt sweetness up front with a slight booze character."
Flavor: "Pretty tasty example of the dank side of life. Alcohol is fairly well hidden among the herbal resin hop, while we would like a bit more bitterness in the finish to go with the medium sweet malt that does linger, slowing it down, it is still a fairly crisp and drinkable beer for its size"
Overall: “Overall a resinous hop character dominates with a slight floral/herbal character but is dominated by the malt sweetness and alcohol warming. The hop bitterness dominates. Assertive and balanced."
