3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.
