3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iím starting early on IPA day!! Strong skunky, cat urine (in a good way if thatís possible) hop aroma from a crystal clear light gold body with a white head. Candied fruit and light bubblegum flavors hit first followed by sweet vanilla and caramel. The alcohol announces itself clearly but not overwhelmingly as do the flavoring hops which cling to the tongue with a light earthy/mushroomy flavor that balances nicely with the malt sweetness. The yeast does stand out as Belgian-ish and adds another nice component to this. Finishes dry and sweet with residual wood and vanilla flavors. Excellent, interesting DIPA. Happy IPA Day everyone!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle in San Diego. This is a big beer. The Belgian yeast flavors are muted, which is great for me, and the rest is all sorts of pine, citrus, herbs. Sticky oily. A bit too sweet but excellent job for a 9% DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours an amber color with a bit of head. Intense hopiness and the belgian yeast flavor is overpowered.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours amber with a white head. This is the best Belgian IPA I've ever had. The Belgian yeast flavor was there but not dominating. Citrus, Belgian yeast, fruity, grapefruit.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Big hoppy smell, sharp with a yeast end. Taste like a knee deep big ipa the Belgian finish is a little over shadowed by the hops but it is still a delicious balance. It leaves the palate coated in a warm hop malt that activates as your tongue traces the surface. Knee Deep makes amazing IPA and this is no different.

Fruity Aroma! Amber, but clear body. White head and ..boom!..vanished. Tastes like hops. who would have guessed. Definitely a double.

Light copper, orange hues. The aroma is floral, tangerine, and sweet. Wow, great sharp taste with some funk mixed in perfectly. Dank, resinous, sticky palate with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is the standout characteristic. Great job Knee Deep!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy copper brownish color lingering thin creamy head. aroma is Belgium yeast upfront and citrucy spicy notes with mild roasted malt. Taste follows the aroma with some lingering hop bitterness on the backend. Im not a Belgium yeast fan but this is very good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass a dark golden with a light tan head that laced down the side of the glass rather quickly.
Aroma is slight banana Belgium funk but a ton of lemony pine hop. Flavor is a sweet funky hop that overall was totally better than anticipated. Balanced. Would easily consume another bottle.
