look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Clean white head with medium froth and density. The head is persistent and clingy.
S - Hoppy, piney, sweet, and grassy.
T - Hoppy, piney, sweet, syrupy, and earthy. For me this beer has a light backend surge. Whatever that means...
M - Full, heavy, and sappy.
O - For me this beer was heavy and unrefined. I think it could use some work and be cleaned up a little. Something is holding this back from being something very worthwhile. A little tweak could push this over the top.

This one is becoming much easier to find now. The local Costco is now carrying it as is Bel aire supermarkets. This stuff is really good.I would put it in my top 5 favorites. I still havent made it up to Auburn but I am looking foreward to getting this fresh from the tap and trying a few others from Knee Deep.

4.8/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

pour: a nice white head with a light golden brown brew.

Smell: being a 3x ipa its all hops i shouldnt even have to say it.

Taste: Wow this is a sipper. Your going to have to take a moment with this one not just to enjoy it but the bitterness on the pallet is toughhh!!! If you like hops this is your beer. Hoppy happy over here. Then you get a little bit of malts when you keep drinking but not much.

Overall: This is a great beer to sit back and enjoy but not for the beginners. Be sure to set the pallet up for a kicking before you get into this. I love knee deep for this one good stuff.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into a rocks glass

A - Pours a light amber, crystal clear, 1 finger head, decent lacing, and no legs.

S - Smell is cat piss up front which gives way to citrus and pine in the back ground. Really a great smelling beer.

T - A lot more malty than I expected from the nose. Cat piss gives way to a citrusy pine mid palate and finishes with a sweet crystal malt backbone.

M - A little hot but that's to be expected out of an 11% beer. Moderate bitterness coats the tongue. Heavy and slick on the tongue.

O - Big, hot, and heavy. Loved every sip of it. I wish I could get this on the east coast.
