UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 22 oz. bottled about 6 weeks ago. Pour has a deep golden color and a thin covering of white head that fell right back to a ring on the glass. Aroma has earthy hops, perfume, hefty resins, citrus, and a big malted core. Mouth feel is medium with good coating and carbonation a touch low. I had expected this to be more of a pallet bruiser from the assault of hops in the nose and that is very welcome. Flavor has resins, citrus, lighter bitterness, hefty malts, and a touch of sweet pink grapefruit. This drinks very smooth and shows little alcohol. I guess that the fact knee deep goes to the triple level with these beers that this falls into the strong side ipa category for me and as a result it is much more drinkable than most iipa’s.

Draft. Pours a copper color. Aroma and taste are pine, citrus, and very hoppy.

Bottle picked up at Brewer’s Haven on Vista for a pretty pricey $8.50ish... Poured into my standard goblet.. clear dark golden with a nice white head... good lacing and retention. Nose is about what I expect from Knee Deep... Pretty spot-on big boned hoppiness with plenty of pithy grapefruit and aromatic tropical fruits and melon. Flavor shows big pithy bitterness up front.. fruity hops from that point forward.. Light/medium body with a nice bubble accentuates the drinkability and moves this one forward.. Hoptologist seems very similar to most Knee Deep beers I have had recently... Not really a knock, but I guess maybe I would hope for bigger differences between their different big hoppy bottles.

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Medium malt. Big hop flavors. Quite boozy. I get that it’s a big beer, but I don’t really want to taste the alcohol. Otherwise, it’s very well done.

Very impressive double IPA, right up there with the best of em. Smells like grapefruit, citrus flavor follows with a little pine. Very dank hop flavor.

SlackerMads (2011) - DENMARK - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle date 2014-04-22. Light hazy orange with a medium sized creamy off white head. Citrus, pine, honey, candy floss, candied orange peel, light sweet malts, white bread, warming alcohol. Full body, oily/creamy texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Soft finish with warming alcohol. It is big, but not overly sweet or raw, actually somewhat soft for its size.

Tap and bottle. Another excellent hop oriented brew from KD. A tiny bit more tame than some of theirs, but still piney and citrused out like crazy. Good stuff!
