3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft. Clear golden orange pour, with a white head. Lots of fresh juicy hops, grapefruit, pineapple, some mango, pine resin, sweet, notes of caramel, and a bit boozy. A little too sweet, not really bitter (a good thing), and nice hoppiness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Beer Rev. It pours a semi clear light gold with a tall white head. The aroma is on point with intense citrus, sharp pine and spicy hops. A little mango. The flavor is super spicy hops with more fresh citrus and very mild honey. The finish is bitter and spicy. Strong alcohol, but the freshness and intensity of the hop character matches it well. I donít usually go for these massive IIPAís anymore, but this one was tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, May 6, 2014. Pours clear orange amber, small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is very caramel, pine. Flavor is medium sweet and strong bitter, pine, caramel, some residual citrus, dank leaves. Biting harsh bitter finish. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Bummer on this one; a month in the cooler did not treat it well. First miss from Knee Deep for me so far.

8oz pourv at Big Sur Taphouse. Good aroma sweet. Orange. Grapefruit. Little cedar. Lightly hazed golden orange color. Ok head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body. Creamy oily mouthfeel. Bitter sweet with a harsh bite on the finish. Pretty good. Just boozy. Otherwise good iipa. Aroma best part. Flavor and finish kind of suffer from high ABV.

Bottle. A golden color with a white head. A huge spicy aroma with cloves, grapefruit, orange and loads of hops. A shock on the palate with a long dry bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a clear deep bronze with a thin film of white.
Aroma: Obnoxious levels of dank. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit, sweet blonde sugary malt. A little alcohol.
Taste: Grapefruit and piny bitterness. Orange pith. Relatively dry malt profile. Delicious.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied mostest carbonation.
Overall: This was similar but different to Simtra. Not as dry or bitter as Simtra for sure. A wonderful hoppy sipper.
