It is great for its kick, 11% goes down so easy. It is a slightly cloudy amber. There are nice floral hops on the nose. THere is a sticky hop front to the taste that fades to a bitter-sweet hop finish that stais the palate and fades slowly.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
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.

joeneugs (3121) - 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.

Gets it, gets it, gets it! Nice dank fresh bag o weed nose. Not too malty. Just right!

Kroney (150) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
On tap at Enzoís BBQ in Oceanside, CA. Pours a rich orange gold with a thin but dense white head that leaves good lacing on the tulip glass. Aroma is big orange, floral and grapefruit hops and a huge caramel malt backbone with some alcohol in the back. Taste is candied orange/tangerines, sweet malts and alcohol, but the alcohol isnít overwhelming for an 11.3%abv 3x IPA. Palate is surprisingly refreshing and not sticky for such a big beer. Another well done IPA from Knee Deep.

JerseyHophead (20) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a fairly clear, golden burnt brown with slight head retention. Nose is intensely hoppy with some pine notes and some sweet malt. Starts with a bitter pine hop. Itís sweet with caramel malt on the tongue and a medium bodied feel. It finishes pretty boozy but has a sweet aftertaste. Itís fairly good but definitely stronger. It reminds me of a maltier hi-res but thatís probably the mouth feel and high alcohol content. Not a starter beer but for those into triples like myself itís worth checking out. (Iíd rank it below simtra)

bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity and citrus. Med body. Flavor is fruity and suddenly that citrus that is almost like pine. Lots and lots of hop. Itís a bit sweet, but thereís enough hop to solve that. Extremely tasty.

Zymurgeist2 (961) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
On tap at Ale Arsenal. Citrus aroma pronounced with bready background. Hazy copper with off-white head clinging to the glass. Citrus dominates flavor and pronounced bitterness. Some chewy yeast and semi-dry finish.
