Natai (96) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a copper gold with a slight white head that dissipates quickly. Little to no lacing. Strong grapefruit aroma hop front followed by grassy and herbal hops. Lots of resin in the flavor with very little hop character, kind of syrupy texture at the end. Disappointing.

IrishBoy (3869) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Draft at Imbibe wine. Nose is mango and orange caramel candies. Lightly hazy gold with a medium off white head. Flavor is light sweetness and contrasting bitterness over the malty background.

ben4321 (4062) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/5/14

Aroma: The nose is resin/weed hops, some grapefruit as well, and some sweet caramel malts
Appearance: It pours a deep orange color with a small, bubbly off-white head and medium lace
Flavor: Tastes more grapefruit than resin, and sweet malt, hop bitterness is less strong than expected
Palate: It is fairly full bodied, has a stickiness to it, a little heat, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a solid IIPA, but not a great one. Tasted a little faded, Iím not sure how old this bottle was (purchased less than a week ago), but this one didnít seem extremely fresh. It is still pretty bitter, but I was expecting over-the-top / in-your-face hops. Still solid, but it sounded better than it tasted. Edit: The bitterness and booze come out as it warms to room temperature. Doesnít change my score. Thereís still something missing that keeps me from going onto the Higher 3s - Low 4s range.

Sledutah (5019) - Utah, USA - OCT 8, 2014
22oz bottle picked up at BevMo
Pours slightly hazy brown/golden with a medium sized beige head, good lacing. Aroma is malty and pine resin. Taste is sweet, caramel, malty and pine resin
I would say this is old, but the bottle date is 6/03/14 (4 months). Not a fan of this one. But I am a fan of Knee Deep beers, most are solid and hoppy.

A hazy orange beer with off-white foam. Pine and citrus with caramel accents. The body is more of a medium and the carbonation is just right. Definitely not the full review. Oh no...

"Agreed. Big pine, herbal and citrus notes in the flavor and aroma. Medium to full bodied as a little sticky. More than adequately bitter. Good stuff fresh..."

Zymurgeist2 (1078) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
From bomber to tulip. Have tried this a couple of times and I donít think this holds up to their other beers. A little too much on the maltiness, syrupy, and bitterness. Of course that is expected from a triple, but it could still balance better. Lots of pine and resin is nice.

Tap @ Jerniganís. Another singing blast of bitter and booze, yet a bit lighter all around that Hoparillo. Still a fantastic TIPA, but Iíll take the other option for more intensity.
