The cousin of Simtra, but brewed with only Centennial and Chinook hops. Need we say more?

Peachy Orange looks. It’s very juicy IPA, smooth, fruity and sweet. The nose is strong, almost barley winey. Smooth, light and almost tropical in the mouth. Very little bitterness, which is astounding considering the advertised 133IBU.

Lots of chinook. Generally a hop I avoid, in this case not so bad. The Centennial adds some nice floral citrus contrast in both the aroma and flavor. A touch boozy but still easy to drink for the monster ABV.

Tap at Apex. A: Cloudy gold color, thin white head. N: Grapefruit, mango, pineapple, biscuit, pine, orange peel, fruit loops, and plenty of residual sugars. T: Very sweet and fruity; not at all bitter. M: Alcohol heat, resinous heavy body, soft carbonation. O: A fruit bomb. Easy to drink without PtY’s scraping bitterness. A different beast for sure, but one I might choose for my palate over the more famous IIIPA.

On tap at apex. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A big sweet fruity resin hop nose. The flavor is big resin, oranges, sugary sweet, pine. Huge. Hot. Gin alcohol burn. Good.

Bright clear gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Nose of pine and resin. Palate is light and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Light malt base with equally light sweetness. Big hop spice. Resinous orange, marmalade, mild lemon. More hop spice. Touch of crystallised fruits. More hops spice. Tropical fruits emerge. More hop spice. Light hop skunk before light and hop spicy finish. Spicy tangerine linger. It’s a real gob full of spicy hop goodness but it always stays light and supremely drinkable. Hides the abv very well. Excellent.

Pours dark orange with a foamy head. Aroma of chewy caramely malts, loads of dank wet herbal hops, resin, grass and toffee. Taste is juicy, hoppy and dank wet herbal with loads of resin, grass, malts, caramel and pine. Finish is massively hoppy and resinous with some grass, pine and herbal notes. Quite hoppy.

Pours clear copper color with a large head. Awesome hoppy aroma, resin, caramel sweetness, just dank. A bit juicy flavor, pineapple, oranges, mango, caramel malt, resin and faint piney tones. Quite balanced and very tasty.

650 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Los Angeles, CA. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber colour with a small head. Aroma is really, really dank with fresh floral notes, weed and citrus. Flavour is extremely juicy with fresh citrusy hops, mild herbal notes, grapefruit, mango, toffee, weed and biscuit. Full bodied. Nice hoppy burbs. Very fresh and dank. Impossibru to complain.

Poured from the bomber into a snifter. Orange pour with a cream colored head. Aroma has some light grainy malt followed by mostly floral hops. Flavor is similar with some caramel malt sweetness at the start followed by a big dose of hops. There's some citrusy notes in the background but a lot of pepperiness and some piney notes towards the finish. Medium bodied with a long spicy finish. Hoppy for sure, but really surprisingly balanced and very drinkable for the ABV. Really good brew as I've come to expect from Knee Deep.
