4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the new facility in Auburn, Ca. Super piny blast. Did not notice the high abv, I think it was covered by the hops, but it did not taste hot at all. Bought a growler for good measure, love Knee Deep!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
