On tap @ gulu gulu cafe in Salem ma serves in a pt glass.
A: served with about half a finger of lightly tanned head that dissapates quickly leaving a good amount of sticky lacing. The color of the body is a rather translucent caramel
Amber and you can see tiny carbonation bubbles running up the glass.
S: not to much going on for aroma here I'm a little dissapointed, I get some sticky caramel and earthy hop notes, it doesn't smell bad but the aroma is on the weak side...
T: deep caramel with a pretty good blast of citrusy and piney hops, the is a good amount of the resinousness here rounded out with a very sticky sweetness, wish the sweetness was toned back a touch personally... But not a bad tasting brew
M: medium to almost heavy bodied sticky and resinous, that alcohol is also deffinatly prevelant here... A sipper, on the almost syrupy side.
O: not a bad dipa but not a great one either, I don't see myself in a big hurry o grab another one of these, but if one was offered to me I would not decline it.
Serving type: on-tap

Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Dark burnt tan/brown, cloudy with a minimal 1/8 inch head. Nice sticky lacing.
Smell - Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, tangerine. lemon, a little funky note along with caramel malts at the finish.
Taste - First sip brings in a odd malt profile that soon gets crushed by bitter hops and alcohol. Very sweet, almost to the point of sickening. Pineapple, grapefruit and tropical flavors are picked up after the initial blast of malts. Very warm alcohol at the finish along with a crushing amount of hop bitterness.
Motuhfeel - Unreal blast of caramel malts crushes the tongue. Bitter hops and alcohol come in and nail the palate. Aftertaste is bitter, and alcohol warm.
Overall - Ehh, this isn't very good. Way overboard on sweet malts, and the alcohol is not needed either. Nothing id recommend or want again, that simple.

Best by date of 8/15/14 it looks great in the glass, pours a deep ruby caramelized malt hue with beige khaki light head, forms fine even lacing around the sides of my chalice.
Aroma...smells like a barleywine with big earthy dank pine resin, much like a Bigfoot from Sierra Nevada. Big caramel malts, alcohol is evident, but that pine resin and pine needles comes forth in every smell.
Flavor huge malt driven backbone, earthy dank American hops, pine needle provides the lingering bitterness upfront this is the maltiest double IPA I've ever come across stylistically for me this is a barleywine...and it drinks like a barleywine booze hits the palate just as hard as the malt train driving the show.
Mouthfeel has cloying butterscotch/caramelized sugars that end in the brashest of all big IPAs/Barleywines I've ever had so harsh on the palate. This glass should be in the shape of a sledgehammer so I can bludgeon myself with it, when I'm done with the beer. Carbonation barely carries the beer on the palate with each sip which adds to the cloying qualities of this big ass brash DIPA.
Overall, why can Hop Knosh be so damn good and refreshing and their DIPA feel like it's trying to steal my soul? That my friends is the question of the day!!!

12 oz bottle consumed on a sailboat in San Diego harbor.
Clear orange amber with a good head.
Medium body with a smooth, semi-creamy feel.
Very hoppy yet attractive aroma.
Sufficient malt load to tame the bitterness of the hops in the finish and aftertaste.
O: Adequately bold but drinkable and civilized DIPA
