Fatehunter (1700) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Finger and half of head on a clear, dark straw colored body. The aroma is light grapefruit and honey. Quite nice. The taste starts off with mild bitterness moving to moderate bitterness. There’s a sweetness in the background that keeps the profile balanced. A crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body. It’s a single-hop ale showcasing Citra hops.

mambossa (126) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Pour to teku, impeccably clear bright-gold pour with erupting head (on account of a slightly inebriated pour). Nose is brightly juicy, slightly floral, biscuity malt. Flavor is clean, honey, colorful citrus juice, finish is very forgiving and sweet. Not as vibrant as I remember, or as many of their other brews, but a nice sessionable offering from these guys. Clocking in at a modest 45 IBU, it’s certainly not a hop-blasted assault, but retains enough balance and clarity worth appreciating.

tiong (5116) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015
650ml bottle

Pours orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grass, mild caramely notes and toffee. Taste is malty, citrusy and grassy with hints of pine and resin. Finish is sweetish, malty and citrusy with some caramel and grass. Okay, but a bit of a disappointment from Knee Deep. These guys can do better.

lusikka (7492) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015
650 ml bottle. Enjoyed at San Diego, CA. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a foamy head. Aroma of fresh citrus, orange marmalade, a bit biscuit and grass. Flavour of crisp citrusy bitterness, orange marmalade, mango, biscuit and some grass. Medium bodied. Slightly too sweet. Fresh bottle requested.

OldGrowth (2935) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Pint at spirits pub & grub, Cary. Good aroma, sweet. Citrus. On the grapefruit lemon side of things. Clean orange gold color, ok head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. It’s good, as long as you like a big citrus beer, and I do.

pineypower (2757) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bomber via crossroads. Pours out a nice mostly clear copper color with a pillow white head. Aroma is of nice citra hops, that juicy lightly tropical, citrusy stuff. Light caramel and a little grain. Taste is a nice showcase of the hop without get no punched with ibu’s which I usually like but in this case it is okay. Some light grainy malt and some bread round this out and a slight lingering bitterness.

ben4321 (4839) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 8/21/15

Aroma: The nose is citrus hops, some earthy notes, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear orange color with a frothy-foam head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is on the hoppy side, but not super bitter, citrusy and clean overall
Palate: The feel is fairly clean, with a light-medium body, and a mid-dry finish
Overall Impression: I’ve had a couple of Knee Deep beers where I felt like the hops were a little stake testing, and I couldn’t tell if that was the beer or the store not watching their inventory (I’m looking at you every store on Long Island). Anyway, this treated much fresher. If this is what Knee Deep beers are usually like, I am intrigued.

mcberko (9754) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2015
On tap at Apex, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out notes of citrus, biscuity malt, and floral notes. Really well-balanced, dry and flavourful. Excellent.

Acid303 (496) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUL 18, 2015
65cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Pours golden with one finger of froth on top. Citrusy aroma, orange peel and hints of mango. Same taste, actually the citrusy flavour is not dominant at all. Bitter and caramel-ish aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light/medium-sticky, carbonation is ok. Nice refreshing beer.
