Knee Deep Beer Tasting 2019
An award winning IPA with a Beer Advocate score of 92. We found this beer to have the right touch of citrus with the perfect amount of bite you expect from an IPA. Very smooth finish.
Delicious with a nice chewy bite of hops. Pace yourself as this Triple IPA comes in at 11% ABV.
Since our last visit, Tanilla has undergone a recipe change from a 6.3% ABV to an Imperial Tanilla with a bigger punch at 10% ABV. Vanilla flavors dominate this treat.
Cherry Imperial Tanilla
We were most excited to taste this special edition with Tahitian vanilla beans and cherry puree. A bit subtle, we would have loved to tasted a little more of the cherry notes.
Slooow Mo IPA
Light and refreshing with just enough bite, this very drinkable 6.5% ABV American IPA might just become a staple in our rotation.
Packed with hops this Double IPA if full of flavor with a smooth finish.
Every visit to Knee Deep includes one of our all-time favorite Hazelnut Milk Stouts. The world is a big place, but we’ve yet to come across a better chocolate flavored stout anywhere. This one has dominated every one of our blind taste tests and is always a palate pleaser. 6% ABV
