-canned 06.05.17. Consumed 01.05.18 in spiegelau ipa vessel.

A: Bright sunset orange coloring in the glass has a bit of hazy and murky nature to it. Slow spacious rise of effervesce. A foamy two finger ivory white head is steady atop, while providing a generous amount of lace appeal. Nice long standing visual, juicy orange looks.

S: Fresh pineapple juice and wet citrus provides a good opening smell. Clean yeastiness, fresh pale grains, wet grassiness of good strength was moderately lasting.

T: Prickly and flowery dry citrus hop with a good sense of bitterness opens the flavor. Some dry tropical fruit, mostly pineapple and citrus leaves a dryn touch on the tongue. There's some grassy hops, west coast style, a good high ibu sensation, with some nuances of wet fruit lightening the mood in the background.

M: Prickly mouthful from the carbonation with a malty lush depth provides a good amount of foaming on the tongue. Dry and citric spicy bite of alcohol chimes in, full bodied nature with lots of sticky hop resins and oils.

O: Overall it's hard to go wrong with a Knee Deep IPA, as they always seem to bring the bomb blast of hops every time around. Juicy aroma is fresh with a smack of the tongue blast of hard hittin hops leads to a good first strong impression. Strong drink-ability rating, good malt support is enough to hold up to the hops and has a varied array of flavor and bitterness components per style to still make this impressive and stand out in a much crowded field.

This one pours a very slightly hazy rusted orange, with a small head, and a lot of lacing. Can purchased at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

This smells pretty classically West Coast, with lots of pine tree and sap, a bit of floral hops, and orange peel and grapefruit.

As the beer warmed, it became a little slick and perfumey, but before that happened, this was your classic West Coast resinous banger. There's tons of grapefruit pith, bitter and just slightly sweet, with orange flesh and peel, and a slight hint of malt sweetness.

This is crisp, and mostly clean until it warms up a bit. There's a normal level of carbonation.

This is quite solid- Knee Deep flies a little bit under the radar, but I've always liked their beers.

Picked up a single from Craft Beer Hop Stop on 10-9-17 for $3.75. Canned on 8-18-17.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that has some good hang time.

Nose is malty with a hint of citrus.

Taste is floral, light orange, and finishes with a bitter grapefruit rind.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall a pretty decent double IPA that i likely will not have again.

Mostly clear, thick, sudsy head. Bright copper color. Aroma is caramel malt with pineapple and citrus. Hints of tropical fruit and melon, floral notes. Flavor is resinous and juicy, pine and grapefruit. The mouthfeel is a bit watery, but the flavor is solid. A very good beer overall.

Can poured into a Knee Deep Brewing Co snifter

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy eggshell white head that settles to a firm layer and laces nicely.

T: Bright zesty citrus, lemon and grapefruit, peppery spice, floral, grassy, and slight herbal notes, fruity background notes, hints of apricot and passion fruit, biscuity malt, and a little caramel/honey sweetness.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a tulip glass. Had a bright orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A decent aroma of hops, malt, a floral quality, and some citrus fruit as well.

T: Tasted of a fair shot of the floral quality, lots of bitter hops (almost too much), a big grassy quality, light malt notes, citrus fruit (orange, lemon), and an earthiness. Kind of a mess of a flavor, with some of the ingredients (the hops and grassy quality) running roughshod over everything else. Needs a little more focus.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a dry, bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is certainly not the worst DIPA I've tried, but I've definitely had better. Not terrible, but could have been better.

Pours translucent orange-yellow with decent head and solid lacing that lingers. Smells of malts and sticky juicy hops. Taste is thick pine and a hint of floral and orange and lemon notes. A hint of booziness. Feels thick and sticky but is quite drinkable. Kind of a benchmark Imperial IPA. Nothing super remarkable, but quite tasty and drinkable. This could be a benchmark/ baseline Imperial IPA by which to judge others.

Can dated 8/17/17 into pint glass. Pours a clear light amber with a substantial off-white head. Initial impression is floral and citrus hops, with a hint of pepper and other spices, slightly offset by a biscuity malt backbone. Hops dominate, though. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky; carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is quite well hidden - tastes almost sessionable. Finish is primarily citrus rind, fading to a slight bitterness at the back of the throat. Quite enjoyable.
