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

Thisis12ptfont (988) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Aromas of big fresh, wet hops, tangerine juice, apricot, massive pines, orange, pineapple, caramel malt, resinous hops and earth. Appearance is a clear gold copper with a thin white foam head. Taste is incredibly fresh and crisp with notes of caramel malt, harsh pines, harsh bitterness, harsh resin, harsh hop oils, orange, tangerine, biscuit malts, cracker malts, toasted malts, honey, grapefruit, citrus and lemon. Finishes dry with extremely piney and bitter hops. Aggressive boozy burn. Overall, this is a real treat. This beer has a really solid body to it but the hops just take the show. Such a piney, dank, resinous, oily hop forward beer. Would DEFINITELY buy again.

Itís not often that these guys miss...beautiful 10 karat pour with a small ivory pour. Incredible tropical fruits, hint of dustiness, bit of pepper, and loads of citrus brightness. Yum!

Kroney (200) - 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 (21) - 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)

skoisirius (1838) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Tap @ Jerniganís. This is that insane type of brew that is basically hops squeezed into your mouth, direct. Amazing. It singes from both booze and bitterness alike. Not for the faint hearted.

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! Thereís 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 drinkiní a 22 of this.
