Beer Review: Hoptologist Double India Pale Ale

Knee Deep Brewing Company, located near Lake Tahoe, California, describes their Hoptologist Double IPA as “an American Double India Pale Ale that packs a punch when it comes to hops.  The aroma and flavors will give you citrus and pine with a slight malt sweetness that finishes dry.” When it comes to Double IPAs, the key is to provide the right amount of hops and flavor, without coming across as a high-alcohol brew whose sole purpose is to get you lit. At 9% alcohol by volume, Hoptologist is plenty strong, but it doesn’t feel like it thanks to subtle fruit flavors and no aftertaste. This is one of our favorites.
