holy crap! 11.3% why didn't somebody tell me that before I popped the cap?!!? i'm already tweaked. darn flexorils. I had no idea...
anyway . . . . nice brightly colored brew, soapy-white lace, smells sweet and caramel-y, with some brown sugar . . . . very sweet aroma....
taste is . . . . bitter first, candy last. really! very bitter, and very candy-like in the finish. very interesting brew.

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.
