Hop De-ranged by Knee Deep Brewing.
Tasting: January 12, 2015
Style: IPA (Quadruple)
A quadruple IPA with a massive 13.2% alcohol by volume (ABV). Hop De-Ranged also delivers some massive hop resin. That 13.2% ABV is fairly well hidden – no heat, not much booziness. Mouthfeel is rich with a building stickiness. Flavor delivers a candy sweetness which is probably a residue of the massive amount of malts used to attain the high ABV. Hop De-Ranged is well balanced as that sweetness is offset by some wonderful grapefruit, melon and has an herbal, minty finish. Delicious – 94 points.
