Beer Review: Knee Deep Breaking Bud IPA


Another offering from Knee Deep I was able to grab while down in Florida. This one is their American IPA, Breaking Bud. Obviously this beer , at least the name and label, were inspired by the TV show Breaking Bad. Another hyped offering from Knee Deep. Breaking Bud comes in at 6.5% ABV.

Appearance: Nice glowing golden color with a slight haze. 1 finger head with some decent lacing. Breaking Bad inspired graphics.

Nose: Pretty dank nose, earthy and pine resin up front. Some pineapple, orange and tropical notes as well. Sweet and biscuit malts coming through as well.

Taste/Mouth: Nice pineapple and tropical notes which follow the nose pretty closely. Resiny bitterness with moderate carbonation and not a ton of malt presence. Finishes with a dry fruity bitterness.

Price/Availability: $8 a bomber in Florida, had on draft there as well.

Overall: A solid IPA offering from Knee Deep that I would have again for sure. Enjoyed it quite a bit and was glad to have the bottle as well as experience it on draft. Not anything extremely special but certainly well executed.

Grade: B+
