3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Champanes,
this beer had a clear orange-gold pour with light brown at the sides of the glass, and gave a white and faint off-white head that was lasting,
it left a sticky ring and lacing on the glass,
it had aromas of grapefruit citrus and pine hops, some lemon zest and guava with toasted malt and bread,
a little caramel, some malt and honey sweetness,
the flavors were pretty simple with citrus, resin and pine hops, toasted malt, a little caramel and malt sweetness,
the finish had resin hop bitterness with some malt and sweetness following,
the mouth feel was light medium with a little bit of a creamy feel and had average carbonation, the alcohol gave light dryness on the palate,
this was a nice DIPA but there was too much sweetness in this drink, less sweetness and it would have a better rating.

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....

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
