22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a weak light tan head. The aroma offers up big resiny sticky smelling notes filled in by plenty of hop sweet citrusy and pine aromas and booze. The hops are largely pine like and bitter citrus trudging along in a pond of thick sticky maltiness. The taste is smooth and slick and sweet and resiny and syrupy sticky resiny hoppy stickiness, wow! There’s big bold pine and tangelo and pineapple and alcohol. Goodness. This is a sipper. It starts with modest citrus hop flavor and thick malts and then runs directly into booze, citrus hop and pine hop resiny bitterness and then sticky sweet malts. Git all messed up drinkin’ a 22 of this.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a slightly hazy orange/dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big earthy, herbal hops, moderate plus bitterness, caramel, toasted malts, good drinkability for 11.1%, I am always impressed by the Knee Deep hoppy beers.

650 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of orange sweetness, rich herbal notes, floral hops and citrus. Rich flavour of herbal hoppiness, floral notes, orange sweetness, grass, rich citrusy notes and some sweetness. Full bodied. Thick mouthfeel. Alcohol warms nicely. Really pleasant lingering bitter, sweet, juicy fruity finish. Great stuff.

Pailhead (6143) - Plymouth, 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. It’s medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, it’s solid...but there’s too much caramel for my IIPA preferences.
