Bottle. A copper color with a white head. A sticky fruity hop filled aroma with a slightly sweet long bitter hoppy flavor. It finishes dry with a long aftertaste and enough malts to keep its backbone.

"another winning hoppy brew from the boys at Knee Deep. While playing with Hopstar pre-production, there were versions approaching this. chewy, sticky hops, sweet malt, with a really cool buttery flavor and aroma in addition to intense citrus and pine. very nice IIPA while watching the G-men dismantle the Falcons :) 2/17-wow, REALLY short shelf life. that sucks..."

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.
