JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, onion and pine. Malty and oniony flavor with a piney finish.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of resinous hops, tropical fruits and caramel malt. Flavour is a huge barrage of hops on the palate but it is exceptionally well-balanced - loads of tropical fruits, resinous hops and pine, balanced with sweet caramel malts. This sure is hoppy but it has a fantastic malt backing. Fantastic stuff, as with all Knee Deep hop assaults.

Benzai (8924) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle [from trade with dap] @ home. Nice clear lightly orange mostly golden color, medium to full sized lightly creamy off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, hops, resin, pine. Just what I was hoping for and what I am looking for in a DIPA. Taste malts, loads of sticky resinous hops, pine, spruce, bitterness and a touch of grapefruit. Very very much of the sticky resinous piney bitterness indeed. Lingering hoppy resinous piney bitter. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, sticky texture. Oh yes, a full on incredibly tasty imperial IPA. Love it!

kaser (3113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Golden orange clear pour from 22oz at home. Aroma is tropical, pears, lipstick. Taste is very hoppy tropical fruits that covers the high ABV nicely. Pretty enjoyable.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, heavy pine and grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with honey and dried apricot in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with slippery lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing.Color is light to medium clear amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent and alcoholic finish. Nice grapefruit hop punch from this DIPA.

badpuppy69 (262) - orange, California, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a clear light copper color With huge head. Aroma Is dank citrus hops with a dirty feet note and barnyard funk. Taste follows the aroma with some spice notes and a warming sensation all thru my body. This is a monster hop bomb aswel as a monster malt bomb. Awesome danky beer!!

umich03jm (2169) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Pretty dank aroma of pine, flowers, musty wood, hop resin, and oranges. Tastes pretty rough. Harsh hop resin, ultra dank, no sweetness, strong bitterness. Stinging pine needles and flowers. Medium body. Sorta boozy in the finish. Overall, nice aroma but needs to be smoother. Extreme hop lovers that want all dank hops and bitterness will love this.

tmoreau (2563) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was appropriately dank, with citrus up front, pine to the back, alcohol at the ready, but a light vegetal hint as celery that put me off just a bit. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste included a pronounced & lingering, rind-like bitterness, and alcohol to match. Potent & pretty tasty.

22oz bottle picked up at BevMo
Pours cloudy orange/golden with a medium sized off-white head, some lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit and resin. Taste is fruity, hoppy, dank and resin
A nice drinking IIPA, no noted alcohols. Well balanced

Dark gold and reeking of hops, this offering from Knee Deep is another great Triple. The bitter is nice,the balance nice, is very good at hiding its boozy nature. I am very excited to find yet another beer from Knee Deep that excites me as much as the rest of the line-up.
