Bottle from Beautiful Beers. Pours hazy golden amber with a fine bright white head which lasts forever. Gorgeous Columbus scent with some malty sweetness. Taste is lovely; full malt sweetness, a big punch of citrus and piney hops and a lovely boozy finish. Reminds me of the Brewdog Hardcore IPA but better. Really enjoyable. Looking forward to the Simtra....

Pours a cloudy peach pear juice color in the glass. Tropical fruit nose. Slight fruity flavor of orange, citrus and passion fruit. A bit sweet. Not really a DIPA that i expected. Odd... but drinkable...

Orangey pour with a solid white head. Nice citrusy aroma. Pine dominates with a grassy, resiny stickiness. If you’re in the mood for a hop blast with a lot of warm alcohol, this will do it. A bit of citrus that faded quickly. Would I drink again? yes. Would I order again? Probably not.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled 9/10/2014. Courtesy of my friend Ed, thanks! Clear dark amber with two fingers of off-white head. Nice webby lacing. Aromas of toasty notes, citrus, biscuit, light floral notes. Tastes of candied citrus, toasty notes, biscuit. Medium body with a dry finish. Pretty good and well balanced, surprisingly not too sweet or boozy like some of Knee Deep’s other offerings.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle frm Kris Wines (London). Rich resiny hop aroma. Lots of piney bitterness with some sharpish unripe mango & citrus tones in there. Good malty weight without being too sweet or heavy. Really nice and hits the spot if you need a hoppy boost.

Poured from bottle it has a golden amber color with a medium head. Aroma of pine and grass with some grapefruit. Taste has bitterness up front with lots of hops. Some citrus kicks in along with some grass. Good finish.
