Bottle (2013)

Thanks for sharing this with me, Nathan!

A big triple IPA that hides the alcohol fairly well with decent amount of bitterness but a lot of sweet malt character as well. Drinkable, and perhaps I'd try a glass on-tap, but once was enough for me as far as bottles go. The hops do lean toward a passion/citrus fruit arena though. Definitely worth trying, but not a world-beater.

Bottled 7/4/13 no hints of age drinks super hoppy. Imperial pint glass full of this liquid glory is a happy one, pours deep copper slightly hazed with hop proteins, full thicket of cream head. Aroma is full of dank hops, including tropical fruit notes, big citrus and grapefruit tones, with pine and herbs. Drinks satisfyingly smooth for such a big beer, the 11.3% abv provides a decent alcohol burn and the malts here bring candied coated hops to mind, very big intense flavors not for the beginner in the realm of hops. This beer coats the palate with honey coated hops and big layers of bitterness and hop flavors, citrus mango and pine needles with a hint of herbal fresh mint leaves. Very tasty, the mouthfeel is big bodied with resinous hop oils, leaves the bitterness on the palate, but the carbonation level is so smooth it adds a bit of creaminess to the texture. It's like a hop milkshake, overall I'm a fan my first go round with Knee Deep definitely worth seeking out some of this big bad triple IPA.

Wow this is bitter! Incredibly resinous, biting bitter grapefruit oil, and sharp pine smack you in the face. There is a underlying medley of tart pineapple and mango. Aroma is stanky, danky, astringent pineapple, grapefruit peel and pine. A perfect looking unfiltered pale ale - opaque tangerine orange with a high alc looking large bubble white foam head. Feels refreshing, medium body. Overall this is a fantastic, bitter bomb of a 'triple' IPA.
