what a fun beer. Super hoppy through and through. Resinous hop aroma. resinous hop flavor, big fat bitter lingering finish. sweetness is moderate, malt is subdued, huge hop flavor, a little citrusy and tropical, and a big bold lingering finish. and the label is funny, too! cmon, it’s a mad scientist guy with a hop plant for a head. that’s gotta be worth some points.

Hazy dark orange body, medium to thin off-white head, soapy lacing. Dank, with aggressive pine and resin, some tropical and citric sweetness, a touch of pale malt and booze. Big, with a medium to full body, moderate carbonation, aggressive bitterness, mild sweetness is balanced out sufficiently.

Just tapped a 5 gallon keg of this.It was kegged 52 days ago. Love the aroma.nice head that laces the glass well.Like most of knee deeps beers this is very hoppy reminds me a lot of pliny the elder. The last 3 kegs I have got were all knee deep and all vey enjoyable.

3/10/15 from bomber, no date. Citrusy piney aroma. A bit unbalanced on the malt side with a bitter aftertaste. Nice pale amber color and one finger head. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska. Underbar doft av hav med sälta svagt av lagård. Mmmm många lager av smaker. Här finns grape frukt o smak av lagård o en god fin beska som ligger kvar ett tag i munnen.

Doften är Underbar mycket komplex fruktig wooow. Smakar komplext fruktigt med grape i eftersmaken. Mycket fyllig åh låååång fin eftersmak. När lär sig svenska bryggare göra dessa öl.

solidfunk (4782) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Much better than the first Knee Deep I had. Pours golden with good head and carpet lacing. Smells of citrus, with some florals and some grapefruit. Finishes with light to medium bitterness. Good balance here. Tap at Ginger Man NYC.

spacecube (1127) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
650ml bottle, pours cloudy gold, with a small frothy white head. Aroma is big on hops, grapefruit, lemon, mango, lots of pine, over a full malt body with caramel and bready notes. Medium full body with an oily resinous texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. All in all just what I expect from a quality US DIPA

scotchzombie (391) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours very hazy and almost milky maize with a foamy yellow-white head that fades to a rim and coating. No lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus with some floral notes. Taste is dry, bitter, short and without too much subtlety. Some grapefruit and a bit jammy. Aftertaste is chalky bitterness. Average.

reggiedunlop (3381) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Pours clear gold with a silky white head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has nice subdued stonefruits, a touch of melon, and some herbal and grassy notes...lots going on and delicately working well together. Flavor follows suit...really nice peach and mango that turns I to great herbal hoppiness...firm but not aggressive bitterness...ABV is masterfully hidden. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry herbal/rindy finish. Dangerously delicious!
