Late to the game on this beer. Kept passing this up since every bottle I would come across was past it's prime date-wise. Pours a very clear gold with nice fluffy head and lacing that quickly diminishes to just some larger surface bubbles.

Intense amarillo, mosaic and citra aroma, with no real leader of the pack, but that's ok since they all smell amazing. Taste follows the nose and you get a nice variety of hop flavor on the palate, along with some lingering honey-like sweetness. Alcohol is definitely felt, but for 11.1%, not that much. Overall.. this is excellent.

Pours into an oversized wine glass a clear slight burnt orange tinged golden with a sticky one finger white head atop.A big splash of tangerine and grapefruit in the nose,wow it really hits ya.Fruity tangerine and grapefruit rind up front on the palate,it never gets to sweet although there is a sugary finish,the hops stay the main focus wich doesn't happen enough for the style.This is a hophead winner here.

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..!
