This not for the faint of heart beer starts with a big grassy nose with a hint of mint over malt and grain aromas with light fruit.
It pours brilliant gold with a ½” quickly dissipating off-white foam cap that is quickly roused. It produces fine lace and some legs.
The beer looks deceptively mild but that illusion quickly disappears as the glass approaches your mouth. The beer attacks the palate with spicy cola, vanilla, melon, and malt flavors that slowly diminish under a barrage of hop and alcohol flavors. The bitterness reminds me of the kind of bitterness you find in a gin and tonic while the alcohol suggests bourbon.
Each element in this beer – malt, yeast driven flavors, hops and alcohol is huge but they are all amazingly in balance.

I think I like this better than Hop Shortage. These guys at Knee Deep know my sweet spot. Super hoppy, bitter with a a malt backbone and a tinge of sweetness at the end. To me it's near perfect, the 13+ %ABV doesn't hurt. This is an outstanding quadruple IPA. I'm a Knee Deep fan for life!

This is a bold beer. Not for the faint of heart. Huge hop profile reminiscent of their simtra, but this certainly has an added hop dimension that I cannot pinpoint. This packs a wallop and Knee Deep does as good as can be expected "hiding" some of the abv. Piney resin, nice citrus burst and malt is almost nonexistent. Very solid offering
