Pours a hazy orange with a medium head,

The smell of pine, citrus and mango smacks you in the face.

Tastes nearly like the aroma, mouth is fairly thick and but works well for this brew.

Finish is bitter with some of the tropical hints, and booze.

This beer is awesome. Very bitter but the tropical flavors balance very well with it. One of the best IPAs I've ever had! It is a must try, but not for the faint of heart or people skeptical about hoppy beers. This is the king of TIPAs!

Bomber purchased on a recent trip to San Diego.

A: Clear dark amber color, nice amount of lacing and head retention.

S: Amazing smell. Lots tropical, piney, and floral notes. Very fresh and hoppy, some hint of the alcohol and caramel malt. Quite similar to Simtra in some respects

T: Big hops and so much flavor. The amarillo is showcased so nicely with lots of orangey and citrusy notes, accompanied by some tropical (peach, mango) and pine resin. The malt is present, but so well balanced allowing the hops to shine through to be the focal point.

M: Medium bodied, a little sticky, but the alcohol is expertly masked. Unapologetically hoppy in a good way in terms of the bitterness it brings, but so smooth and drinkable.

O: Excellent beer. I think Simtra just about wins out, but this is up there with some of the best I have tried. I can't get over how for a triple ipa this is so easy to drink and smooth, yet packed with tons of amarillo hop goodness, complexity, and such balance. I would wholeheartedly recommend picking up this release, I just wish I had access to Knee Deep more regularly and the fine triple ipa's they bring out!

Served in a tupip glass out of a 22oz bottle dated 5/9/14.
...So obviously really fresh.
Really good beer the appearance was a fairly clear dark amber low head with little lacing. The smell was amazing. Im a big fan of Knee Deep. I absolutely love Simtra and find Hop Shortage very good. This one Smells to me like a cross between fresh Simtra and Hop Shortage... what I mean by that is... Simtra to me is all about the hops, while Hop Shortage has strong hops with a strong carmel malt. Personally, this beer has the really strong hops, yet is a bit more complex than Simtra.

Overall, Knee Deep makes some of the best tripple IPA's out there. Really love this one fresh. Quality.
