What You Need to Know

Brewed in the West Coast-style, Tahoe Deep features Centennial, Cascade, and a blend of CTZ hops. The hops impart a floral and tropical fruit aroma and a palate that has a resinous pine finish. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.

Appearance

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.

Aroma

The aroma consists of fresh pine, ripe stone fruit, and a hint of grain.

Flavor

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.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a light grain texture, relatively dry finish, and less-than-moderate astringency. Medium body and matching carbonation.

Overall

The appearance of Tahoe Deep is lovely and its head shows good 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.
