2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bottle. Very clear gold color with a small, brief, off-white head. Aroma is pine and light citrus that's not overly intense. Medium bitter, light body. Long, unpleasant finish. Overpowered by a perfumy, almost metallic taste. At first I thought it was the alcohol coming through. Disappointing to say the least. I would not drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
I thought this was a solid IIPA, but not a great one. Tasted a little faded, I’m not sure how old this bottle was (purchased less than a week ago), but this one didn’t 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. Doesn’t change my score. There’s still something missing that keeps me from going onto the Higher 3s - Low 4s range.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"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..."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bomber to tulip. Have tried this a couple of times and I don’t 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Jernigan’s. Another singing blast of bitter and booze, yet a bit lighter all around that Hoparillo. Still a fantastic TIPA, but I’ll take the other option for more intensity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewery. Lots of sugar and a citrus/orange aroma in the nose. Flavor is pretty much identical, moderately sweet with a bit of alcohol noted. ok, but I like Simtra better I think.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear light gold color with a white head. The aroma has bright lemon and orange with hints of tropical fruit and florals. The flavor is spicy, fruity and floral with touches orange oil cleaner and malt. The body is full and oily on the palate. The finish has strong, but not oppressive bitterness and noticeable alcohol. Similar to Simtra in it’s brutish assault, but overall pretty enjoyable.
