3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from Arizona. Clear golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine resin, caramel and solvent. Flavor is lots of alcohol and phenols with some caramel malt and firm hop bitterness. Medium body with a syrupy mouth feel. This one is just ok, lots of alcohol and phenols.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle pours a clear orange with some cloudy white head. Nose is musty, pine, orange, lemon rind, soap, floral. Flavor has more bitterness, more than the nose would hint, orange pith, lemon, heavy soap. Full, bracingly bitter finish. Not my favorite from Knee Deep.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Park Place) - Pours a clear amber color with a 1/2 finger thick light tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma is pungent hops (lots of pine and resin). Flavor is pine, citrus, and floral hops. Initially, this beer was quite bitter. It became fairly smooth as I drank it. Medium to full body. A good beer.

Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours a clear amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with a bit of sweet grains. Flavor begins with sweet grains with a growing grass note and a hint of resiny citrus.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright 24 karat pour with a small eggshell head. Nose of papaya, mango, dusty hay, pepper and pine. Flavor not as assertive or pleasant as the aroma. More caramel and malt than expected. Fairly spicy and floral with the alcohol showing quite a bit. A good but not great IIPA...appreciated Simtra more.

22oz bottle-shared by jtclockwork-aggressive pour gives a nice rice/foamy offwhite head-gold. A-tropical/perfumy, 2nd sweet lt/med malt-caramel. T-tropical/perfumy hops. Finish is cologne and long, then metallic. Stopped after 10oz so I wouldn’t drop the score further. 3.0

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex westcoast hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a very good beer.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose is fantastic - lots of mango, tropical fruits and caramel malt with hints of perfumy hops. Taste is not good at all. Tons of cologne and perfume with some tiny semblance of IPA somewhere. Almost straight up cologne in the finish. Really disappointing. Body on the lighter side of medium for a triple IPA. If it wasn’t for the nose this would be closer to a 2.1-2.2 rating.
