Tahoe Deep is an American Double IPA brewed by Knee Deep Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.
This DIPA pours a cloudy burnt orange and is topped by a thick cap of rocky ivory-white foam that shows fine retention. Numerous patches of sticky lace cling to the sides following the reduction. A soapy collar rounds the glass.
The aroma consists of fresh pine, ripe stone fruit, and a hint of grain.
The hop-forward palate begins with a mild dose of citrus that recedes to a taste of lightly toasted bread. Pine and peppery hops lead a bitter finish that adds resin to its lingering bite. A flash of orange and ripe stone fruit is picked up on the swallow.
Its feel has a light grain texture, relatively dry finish, and less-than-moderate astringency. Medium body and matching carbonation.
Its appearance is lovely with good head retention and ample lacing. Its feel is right in line with the expectations for the style. And its aroma and palate are definitely hoppy but exhibit a nice balance between the bitter and sweet. Tahoe Deep ticks all the boxes you’d expect from a solid Double IPA.
