Pours a nice clear golden orange with a great lasting foamy head. Aroma is piney, citrus hops. Taste is grapefruity hops, but a very very sweet malt backbone...a bit too much for me. Itís nice, but I much preferred simtra.

Bottle shared by Ed5388 during Belgian Pumpkin brew day. Poured an ugly muddy swampy light brown with a smaller soapy light beige head. Aroma of old hops, hint of cardboard, caramel, toffee, molasses, earthy citrus and grapefruit rind. Medium body with average carbonation that has a lingering aftertaste and some light alcohol heat that slowly builds. Flavor of grapefruit, citrus rind, caramel, dry brown toffee and bread.

22 ounce from Jungle Jimís. April bottling date! I need to be more careful since I know how bad Jungle Jimís can be. And Knee Deep should reconsider some markets they are in if they canít sell well there - split Ohio and come to Kentucky. Still, citrus and orange. Nice bitter taste. Still decent at this age. I canít imagine how nice it must be fresh.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle:   Bright translucent golden, light carbonation, small sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Alcohol at first, slight resiny background.   I smell the alcohol, but it doesnít come out much on the tongue, very cool.   Faint tropical fruit, stale hops, very little bitterness.   Triple IPA that isnít overly bitter?   Thatís odd!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pith and pine on the finish.   Very slight warming, but nothing to lead me to believe this one is even close to say... 7%.   A little tobacco leaf, stale and old that lingers after the finish.   I expected a Hop Bomb, but nope... odd.

alexsdad06 (5335) - Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of pine and citrus up front and through to the finish. Some additional earthy notes, caramel, toasted, and dry grass. The alcohol is present and further serves to dry this out. Good, but the citra is much better.

Ed5388 (1975) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a hazy dirty copper color with a finger of somewhat fizzy white head. Aroma of expired IPA, sweet caramel malt, some grapefruit, and pine. Taste was much better. Lighter on the caramel malt, but lots of bitterness. Big grapefruit, citrus, and sticky pine.

mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, a little buttery hops, and a slight fruitiness. Flavour is very sharp, full of soapy floral hops, a little dry pine, and dry biscuity malt. This is quite sharp and astringent, finishing on harsh soapy floral hops. Super dry and quite drinkable. Very solid IPA.
