Pailhead (5330) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of heavy citrus hops, candied oranges, caramel, and a touch of pine and herbal notes. It pours a transparent copper with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thick soapy ring. There is some thin soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with sweet citrus/orange and caramel. The finish has moderate pine, grapefruit, and some light toasty nights. Itís medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, itís solid...but thereís too much caramel for my IIPA preferences.

thebeertourist (4996) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from City Beer Store, SF. Clear golden, solid offwhite head. Orange zest, grapefruit, herbal hop aroma. Also some spiciness in the mouth. Very bitter, but with a solid malty backbone. A good one.

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.

tiong (4207) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
650ml bottle from Whole Foods Bowery, New York @ Varjopikkujoulut

Bottled 09/02/14 - Pours clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of booze, floral hops, caramely malts, toffee and citrus. Taste is pure hoppiness with some booze, floral notes, caramel, toffee, citrus, pine, resin and fruits. Finish is floral, herbal and slightly malty with loads of lingering bitterness and hoppiness. Long lasting hoppy burps. Heavy and extreme stuff.

bytemesis (3953) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
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.

joeneugs (3727) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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.

TimE (3618) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2015
Light amber color. White head with quick dissipating head. Big sweet malty nose with lots of tangerines which works well with the sweet maltiness. The mouth is very big with lots of maltiness, but alcohol is relatively well hidden. Stone fruits. Well integrated, but probably could be better with slightly less alcohol. Big tangerine and citrus finish. Yummy stuff.
