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!

This beer smells wonderful, tastes great, and makes me feel a good buzz. Btw, I'm terrible at beer reviews.

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 hops (citra, mosaic, amarillo) are 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 citrus 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!

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.

The mix of the three hop brew killer. Wow.. love the extensive bitterness of this beer. This is the style of beer that should ONLY be allowed to be called an IPA. Malt backbone - ha- NONE
