22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/14/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light caramel, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with bright citrus/topical hops and moderate bready malt balance; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is damn nice IPA. All around good complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

22oz bomber served in a 20oz Pint glass.

Bottled 4/30/14 so its fairly fresh.

Really good IPA. It honestly drinks like a double IPA. Typically I prefer really big hoppy beers so I generally only drink double or triple IPA's. Although, at 7.5 ABV and a big hoppy smell, I really enjoyed this single IPA. I personally love what Knee Deep does with big hoppy beers and I found this beer to be just a slightly tamed down version of Simtra. Overall a great beer.
