conway (1377) - - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with a 2 finger white head. Aroma is piney and citrusy hops and solvent like alcohol. Taste is piney and citrusy hops with a really solid caramel malt backbone. Thick coating mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Quite boozy. Solid big IPA.

MacBoost (1249) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bomber from box aroma. Pours a slightly hazed orange with a generous head. Aromas of some light tropical fruit and some pine sap. Taste is bitter upfront, followed by a sweet hoppy fruitiness and bitter finish. Pretty low carb which makes it highly chuggable. Decent, not mind blowing.

Sammy (8529) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
Decent IPA, from ih bottle. Some lemon, orange, and tangerine. 50-60 IBU listed. Not in DIPA territory.

HughConway (787) - Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bomber bottle. Pours hazy orange, stiff white head. Slight hop aroma, taste is bitter and sweet, slightly cloying sweet finish. More a barleywine than a TIPA.

This bottle has been sitting a bit. I would have preferred trying it fresh. I have been pretty impressed by most of what Knew Deep is doing. This aroma is heavy. This lacing is a bit sticky. It does not taste as boozy as it is set out to be. The pour is an amber-more orange in color. There is a slight head that holds to the circumference only. A lot of pine and citrus to the aroma. There is bitterness and sweet hints with a definite citrus appeal.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
22oz bottle - It’s been awhile since I’ve indulged in a triple IPA, and even longer when it was one worth noticing. A splendid job by Knee Deep with this one, because it could have easily been a train wreck like many 3xIPA’s. A huge aroma of pine and citrus, subtle herb/mint-like with just a bit of breadyness. The palate explodes with waves of hops. Tangerine zest, enamel melting grapefruit rind, some pine notes and no where is there much malt to pick up. Aggressively hopped, minimal malt profile...very nice.

brystmar (1236) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Hops are unrefined, lacks the clarity and vision shown by the better brewers. Sweet malt, piney, meh.

Vaiz (3325) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle from city beer, San Francisco. Clear golden pour. Aroma is full of hops, a hint of chemicals and murky, but mostly fruity hops with resin. Flavor is quite strong hops, bitter and slightly chemical resin and a bit buttery diacetyl. Messy.

dEnk (3775) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2013
Bottled two weeks ago. Supposedly the hops are insane. Aroma is huge bready caramel, candy like, cookies and fruity hops. Flavour is huge hop bitterness, again with bready cookie malt. Extreme but Nice.
