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.

Bottle via trade. Aroma is piney and a lot of citrus. Overall ok but has a touch of boost.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Mostly clear, orange-amber color, aroma is hoppy, danky, piney, malty. Very malty, semisweet, hoppy - danky, piney, decent bitterness in the finish.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Clear pale amber color with a medium ivory white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Full-bodied with a resiny hops character and flavors of grapefruit and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottle. Red. Sweet and delicious. Light as hell for the style. Light malts give way to super hop bitterness. Awesome ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear gold with a thin white head. Hoppy resinous and citrus aroma and taste with some solid booziness. Thick mouthfeel and light carb. Nice.

bytemesis (2949) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
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.

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)
