22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of resinous hops, tropical fruits and caramel malt. Flavour is a huge barrage of hops on the palate but it is exceptionally well-balanced - loads of tropical fruits, resinous hops and pine, balanced with sweet caramel malts. This sure is hoppy but it has a fantastic malt backing. Fantastic stuff, as with all Knee Deep hop assaults.

Bomber, couple of weeks old. Bright clear gold. Stunning juicy mango and tangerine aroma, light floral notes in there and just a hint of that big ABV. Taste gives mango, melon, tangerine and more pithy grapefruit. Some more perfumey notes get in there. Biscuit malt, impressively light presence letting hops sing. Booze well integrated, you can tell it's there but it isn't harsh. Pine needles come out towards the end, blending with the sweet tropical notes which linger. Amazing - my kind of hop forward beer.

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 don’t usually go for these massive IIPA’s anymore, but this one was tasty.

Bottle pour clear dark gold with large white head. Nose huge tropical fruit, citrus, and resin. Taste grapefruit bite up front, then resin. Some citrus, then comes dank and bitter. Late palate heat from alcohol. As it warms, more mango and sweet malt appear, balancing the alcohol. Long bitter finish. Thick mouth feel.

matthewjk (933) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Such a huge heavy-hitter that could knock a normal person on their ass. Showcase of huge hop aroma with massive citrus flavors--pretty damn dry. This is a big-time beer that will blind side you if not ready. Serving Size: 22oz bottle.

Kicking back on a gorgeous fall afternoon, and this is the perfect beer for it. Big and bold in all categories, rich and powerful. Tasty, smooth with a kick. Pleasant alcohol burn from start to finish.

Amazing aromas. Well Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic what else to expect. Crystal clear with white head. It starts with sweet alcohol hop flavor. Not enough hop to balance the big beer. Exceptional overall

On tap at BGH. Incredibly hoppy and fruity on the nose. Very smooth and full of smooth flavor. Good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kroney (158) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
On tap at Enzo’s 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 isn’t 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.
