Pours a dark amber with a white head. The nose is full of floral hop notes and tropical fruits including orange, pineapple and grapefruit. Tastes of dank hops, luscious tropical fruits, sticky pine and floral notes. I love the combination of the tropical aromas and flavors with the massive punch of bitterness and sticky hop character. Nice warming, packs a punch.

This had me at the smell. As soon as I popped the cap, I knew this was the gonna be a good one. Perfectly bitter but oh so smooth at the same time. DANK for sure. I’ve got a new favorite.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bomber bottle into a snifter.

L - Straw to light golden color; hazy. White head is thick, rocky and persistent. Carbonation The haziness and the orange tinge of the beer remind me more of a Belgian Gran Cru than an IPA, but it is an attractive beer.

S - Aroma is a clean, bracing hit of hops, reminiscent of orange citrus, pine and tropical fruit, There is some bready malt in the background, but at a much lower level.

T - On the tongue is a perfect balance of sweet, warm, grainy malt, and orange juice/pine hops. Again, all is clean and fresh. Delicious.

F - Medium, verging on heavy body. Intensely strong hops bitterness. Alcohol has some heat, but it blends nicely with the hops sting. Full, slightly prickly carbonation.

O - This is a balanced, fresh, clean and delicious Imperial IPA (triple? double? who cares.). It's a big beer that will knock your block off, especially at the bomber size, but it is a pleasant ride.

Really great. Dank nose. Heavy mouth. Great hoppy flavor that opens up wide post swallow.

Pours clear gold without much head.

Aroma is citrus and dank pine.

Taste is a pretty nice hop and citrus balance with a bitterness kick so there's no mistaking that this is triple IPA.

Still, extremely smooth for the high ABV. These are a couple of my favorite hops, and they're really kicked into high gear here.

Yet another delicious Knee Deep brew.

On tap. Pours a pretty golden color with a fingernail head that lingers and leaves minimal lacing. Great nose with a burst of dank and pine hops. Taste is a bitter but not painfully bitter hop bomb with multiple layers of hops. Medium body and medium-high carbonation.
As smooth and drinkable as triple IPA's come. The bitterness carries throughout without putting off the super smooth balance of the hops and some malt backbone. The alcohol is hidden super well, and paired with the smoothness of it, makes the beer really dangerous in the best possible way.

Clear gold with orange tint on the sides. The three finger bone color head stays for about ten minutes leaving rings of lace as it falls.
The smell is dank and citrus.
The taste is big bitter citrus with a strong malt bill. The hop oil resin suggests pine.
Medium body with good carbonation. The finish is dry and bitter.
Overall a fine beer for the style. Never felt boozy at all. Good job folks!

Enjoying a bomber in Riedel glass. It has a clear and deep golden color appearance with a foamy, long lasting head. Nice aromas of pineapple, orange, resin, and vanilla malted with a full bodied and smooth carbonated feel. At 11.25 percent you get the heat upfront with flavors of resin, burnt orange rind and caramel. It has a good amount of bitterness which lingers but is nicely balanced with the sweetness. It's not boozy at all, which I really like.

Poured a clear orange body with good head and lace down the glass. Mild, citric, earthy, oily aroma with a smooth, easy-drinking body. Taste is earthy yet mild on the bitterness with a juicy sweet finish that meshes well (great balance) with well-hidden ABV and overall a great beer.
