4.19/5  rDev 0%

Poured bottle dated 5/9/14 into New Belgium globe

A-Clear pale amber color with a medium ivory white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass.

S-Aroma of citrus, caramel and pine. Dank

T-Flavor is medium sweet and strong bitter, pine, caramel, some residual citrus, dank leaves. The taste got better the warmer it got.

M-Mouthfeel give a full body, and creamy. Good carbonation.

O-This triple IPA had to grow on me. I would recommend letting it sit in your glass for a few minutes to really enjoy.

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..!

4.2/5  rDev +0.2%

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.

4.06/5  rDev -3.1%

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

A deep reddish bronze body, nearly crystal clear, slight bit of dull haze but quite easily can see some great slow rising carbonation. Head is creamy thick, off white and fistfull tall. Big creamy retention and whipped up with some small bubbles mostly and some large pebble sized ones as well.

Solid hop aroma. Juiced orange and spicy malt notes slightly. Some very floral and airy perfume like qualities too. Slightly sweet, and a hint of brown sugar and syrup.

Palate comes really surprisingly in the feel more than anything. Creamed sweet bodyfeel and almost biscuity like malt qualities like an English bitter on the malt angle. Hop angle is nicely subtle with aromatics popping into mint and treacle syrup. Finishes thick and juiced up, with some coating malt and resin. Sweetness comes out quite a bit on the malt angle as well, almost into barleywine territory here.

Overall it's a neat one, but doesn't come off with a huge impression, and seems to get into barleywine stradling territory. Still a solid decent brew.
