3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Chuck's: new brewery to NE OH. Pours clear amber, wispy off white head that fades to a thin haze and dense ring. Pine resin, mango, herbal spice notes with some crystal and caramel malt presence on the nose. As this warms, resinous hop bitterness, some grassy and herbal nuances with this hop profile. caramel and crystal malt sugars in the middle of the flavor profile, followed by a not over the top spicy bitter hop bitterness. For a triple IPA, this grew on me as the palate holds up and mellows and increases drink ability for such a big ABV beer. It's no Pliny or Dreadnaught, but damn good

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Should be called Death by IPA. Got this at the brewery on probably the best flight I've ever had. They pour 4 five ounce doubles and triples if you ask, for $6.
All the knee Deep beers have great lacing and aroma. They are very hop friendly, especially the Simtra.

Pours cloudy orange. Head is thin and filmy in nonic pint. Aroma of bread and HOPS! Fresh squeezed orange and pine. Same taste and big dank backbone. Alcohol taste on finish means business. Pretty good; pretty strong.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Unclear deep orange amber with a lasting, sticky head. Big hop flavor and aroma as you would expect. Strong bitterness but balanced by enough sweetness. Full body. Alcohol hidden well. Oily and a bit sticky. Surprisingly easy drinking. Its a mouthfull of hops.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Citrus, hoppy bitterness, wet on the palate but dry aftertaste. I won’t to like this IPA but it does nothing will and barley makes the rank of marginal. Citrus, wet, bitter, dry fully summarizes the experience of this beer. Not again

You can’t tell the 11% at all. Very strong citrus/pine hops. Bitter finish. Malt to balance, toasty.

4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Perch Pub in Philadelphia. Golden color, decent head and carbonation. Hard to think of another beer of comparable alcohol that hides it so well. Even the high IBUs are well balanced in this really impressive beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled March 2, 2015.
Glass: Tired Hands wine glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear amber body with a beautifully messy white dense head on top.
Aroma: Nice mixture of marijuana, earthy notes, floral notes and a bit of grapefruit and orange. This is a unique combo that I haven’t really come across yet. Booze shows though.
Taste: Not even close to being overly bitter, though not really malty either. This is the lightest 11.25% beer I’ve come across. A tad boozy, toasty malts, bits of earthiness and maltiness by the end, but overall a bit boring.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Drinks way lighter than the ABV and drinks way milder outside of the booziness by the finish. Maybe my palate is a bit soaked up from the mead before but this lacks hugely.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks DSG. Clear gold with a white head. Onion, poppy, ink, hoppy aroma. Mild bitterness, a little juicy taste. Hardly any carbonation, medium body, bitter finish.

Lovely aromas of fruity and floral. Well hopped fruity taste but also some bitter. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Good beer but slightly bitter. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
