This beer is a must try. Such a hoppy and delicious beer. Very light on the gutt and goes down smooth.

I think the average beer drinker would think this was an IPA just from the taste. Not sure who itís just a pale ale, "extra" or not. This is very much in the mold of its big brother Hoptologist and even BIGGER older brother Simtra. Same big citrusy aroma, sweet taste and balancing hop explosion on the back. Really wish this came in six-packs, as it would be a great daily drinker for those who want huge hop flavor but not the 10-11.25% abv of the bigger beers in their line-up.

I like everything I have had from knee deep. This is no exception. I did notice a flatness in it, I think that is from the single hop aspect. It says single hop right in the bottle, so canít really fault them for that. It is really good compared to most other single ipaís I have had.

Many 16oz samples on tap at the Davis Graduate. The aroma on this is insane with so much citrus. Mostly mango and passionfruit with some lemon and a little grapefruit. Heavily hopped, and greatly quaffable. Transparent copper body with a frothy off-white head that leaves good lacing. This beer starts more like it smells. Tons of citrus mango and more heavily with grapefruit. The maltiness is there, but it stays in the background enough to balance and showcase the hop. Not overly bitter, but just a beautiful beer and a beautiful hop. Well done!

22oz bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Good retention and lacing. Citrus, pine, not too malty. I really like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Loved it and went back for more. Poured from tap at SAC brewers showcase. They brought this out at the end of the tasting session and I fell in love with it. Very heavy nosey hop aroma. Straw and goldish amber pale ale color. Taste was exceptional and citra lingered on the palate a while, but in a good way. Taste was citra hop, with malty backnotes and finish was citra and lemon. Overall very good.

Itís got hop-intensity and malt-density. Huge West Coast hoppy nose, sweet marmalade malt palate, refreshing finish. An excellent example of the West Coast IPA style.
