look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz bomber bottle. No date, but assume fresh from CA. Poured this one into a Victory tulip.

A: Pours a nice clean orange amber color. One finger of slightly off white head. Nice carbonation streaming off the bottom of the glass. Leaving some nice lacing already.

S: Definitely getting those hops. Mango, papaya, apricots, orange marmalade, etc. There is also a touch of bready notes from the malts. Don't think it's age but we'll see.

T: Right up front you get some of those intense IBUs, bitterness attacking the tip of the tongue. Those pineapple and mango and papaya are there. But there is a pretty solid malt backing on this DIPA. For being a "hop bomb" it's actually nicely balanced. On the close I did get a touch of booze on the close.

M: Medium bodied. Hop bitterness coats the mouth well.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: This one falls out of the bottle presenting a copper tone with light tangerine hues at the edges ofvthe glass. Fairly white thin head is portrayed after a nice pour

S: Honestly not sure why but i got a huge vanilla earthy scent from this beer and much else. Not that its a bad thing but definitely not what i expected

T: Deep tangerine and orange flavors peel back your taste buds with the help of some lovely pine like hops that push massive smount of well balanced bitterness your way. Grassy earthy and caramel notes help rpund out the finish

M: Nice and bold with a gentle sweetness, but i expect it from a beer of this magnitude.

O: my local liquor store recommended it to me and i am pleasently surprised but the quality and balance of this beer. First Knee Deep that i have had but definitely wont be the last
