4.2/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on date of 07/16/14

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and pure gold in color with a white, finger width head. Sub-par retention results in a near barren surface and a small ring of suds around the edge. Lacing is small and spotty, with fair stick.

Smell - Tropical aroma, with huge juicy notes of mango, grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Subtle pine resin undertone.

Taste - Tropical hop is the main show here. Big mango and grapefruit. Light pineapple zing. A bit more pine than the aroma led on, with moderate resin flavor hitting mid-taste and into the finish. Some mild orange pith and nutty stonefruit pit in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Full in body with low carbonation. Thick with a touch of syrupy character, but smooth for such a big beer. Dry finish.

Overall - Pretty damn good. Big, but doesn't overwhelm, at least not in the tangible sense. At 11.1% it can creep up on you fast if you aren't prepared. So yeah, anyway, definitely worth a try.

Nose citrus, tropical fruit, herbal, pine, fresh baked bread. Pours brilliant amber under a 2” white foam cap that produces thick, clingy lace. It has a big bourbon palate with a dash of Regan’s Orange Bitter Number 6 and finishes with a slight alcohol burn. Hints of vanilla and butterscotch in the background. Chewy, creamy and delicious.

Like so many others, I'm an extreme fan of Knee Deep brews. I really looked forward to trying this beer...and it did not disappoint.

The color pours as vibrant as all Knee Deep IPA's....and the aroma Simtra-esque. The balance of sweetness and hoppiness dance well with the high ABV.

Another delicious brew from Knee Deep..!

The mix of the three hop brew killer. Wow.. love the extensive bitterness of this beer. This is the style of beer that should ONLY be allowed to be called an IPA. Malt backbone - ha- NONE
