Draft at Naja's. Pours clear golden amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like sweet cereal malt, booze, resin, leather, and grapefruit hops. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like booze, resin, leather, cereal malt, and grapefruit hops.

A deliciously malty DIPA. Fresh and zesty grapefruit and orange hops blended perfectly with soft, sweet malt. Extremely clean and refreshing finish. Every bit as good as Pliny The Elder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - 13.8% - I’ve had stronger - no nose to talk about - a beguiling crystal clear gold - tastes like a hoppy barley wine but the flavour isn’t assertive at all... it’s very delicate and complex - some alcohol heat there and a cognac flavour edge as it warms - It’s the equivalent of Michelin starred food - alas more isn’t better and I’m not a fan of Michelin food - this beer lacks heart - I didn’t enjoy it.

In a market that’s become saturated with IPA’s, it’s not easy to brew one that gets your attention. Despite the odds, Knee Deep is repeatedly doing just that. They’ve taken things into really weird territory with Hop-De-Ranged, a so-called Quad IPA. Coppery gold color - about what you’d expect to get when IPA gold-orange is mixed with Quad brown. Nose has both lots of malt yet lots of resinous, citrusy hops. Flavor goes that way, too. It’s bizarre. Caramel, candy sugar, and bread collide with tropical and tea-like hops. It shouldn’t work, but it does. It manages to capture both Quad and IPA character respectively, though the hops definitely take the upper hand. I had no idea the ABV was 13.1%. It’s hidden cleverly.

Bottle/Fest. A- Pine, caramel, bready. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Pine, bitter, citrus, cleaner. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Definitely more IPA than Quad, no doubt. Was hoping for some more brown sugar, candied fruit, etc. notes but mostly just got a lot of bitterness.

It’s bright orange and clear with a normal white head. Smells like hop resin. Possibly the most bitter beer I’ve ever tasted. I think it’s so bitter you can barely taste the fruity notes from the hops. The finish is mineral and the bitterness lingers for days. Drinking this beer just makes me shake my head. You could probably grow man tits after one pint. Thank God I only had a snifter.

22oz bomber pours with a near clear gold body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up mango, cantaloupe, thin spicy hops, booze, and little else. The taste delivers mango, cantaloupe, ripe clementine and tangelo as well as orange flavored gummy bears. Wow. For such a huge beer this maintains a pleasing level of finesse. Nice. The massive abv is pretty well hidden.

I’ve never met the Jerry posted on the bottle, I assume he’s tasted something almost as bitter as this; but this... is a Leviathan. Excellent in every sense of the word. I fell madly in love with it as soon as it passed my throat. I really enjoyed it’s hops as well as its malts. Ausguschnet.
