Pours super hazy orange with medium off white head. Ok this is an instance where big ipas turn into hoppy barleywines. And I like it. Taste is big sticky sweet caramel, citrusy swirls of orange peel, melon balls and some grapefruit. ABV is actually decently hidden. Malt prevails, but still I like the combo of hops and malts.

On tap at the brewery May 11th, although I usually have a taster of this whenever I’m at the brewery. Pours gold. Aroma of grassy & floral hops. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of floral and grassy hops, pink grapefruit, bold malts, light spice. Overall very rich, tasty and easy to drink relative to the ABV.

Can. Pours orange with white head. Smells like sweet orange, lots of caramel. Very interesting taste...creamy, sweet, slight citrus, really different. Very enjoyable, just wish it had a little more hops in it, being it is an imperial IPA. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Colorado Plus. Strong, boozy, pine-sol aroma with citrus and tropical fruit. Similar flavor, heavy bitterness balanced by sweet malts (caramel, bread). Full body with a lingering finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Slight hops, no malt and no diacetyl. No citrus aroma.
Appearance: Medium Brown: about a 15 SRM and clear.
Flavor: Malty bitterness that lingers with moderate alcohol and no citrus.
Mouth feel: Full with low carbonation and slightly astringent.
This beer overall was not as expected. It is unlike other IPA’s and Double IPA’s I have had. It is no Maharaja or Pliny the Elder. It is drinkable, though.

This thing is dank. I don't use the word dank, either. Renegade is by W 6th, which is dispensary central. Very fitting. I love G'Knight, this is like it on steroids.

12 ounce can received in a trade with wchesser. Hazed golden copper with a nice gold tinted head. A nice, citrus aroma. Citrus defines the flavor. It manages to not be grapefruit and to not have big bitterness. Oranges and lemon. Caramel is much lighter but works here. Alcohol was not tasted but was immediately felt. Good stuff!

Bottle. The look is hazy but clear, golden in color, ok off white head. The smell is dank, pine, fruits, colada, alcohol, cleaning solution, and pineapple. The taste is thick, pine, alcohol, sweet, and ok.

Pours orange with some white head. Citrus nose, orange, chive, lime. Chewy malt flavor, honey, scallion, oranges. Zesty finish. Struck me as a little odd.
