Tap. Clean pinkish-gold color. Head on the thin side. Minimal webbing. Nice, fresh nose of hemp, orange and pine, in that order. Toffee malts behind. Medium body. Taste starts sweet - sweet malts - and moves to bitter. More orange and pine. Creamy mouthfeel. High abv hid well. Nice stuff.

3 ounce sampler at the Taproom in Auburn, slight fruity aroma, banana esters, a little spicy.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 8, 2013
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.

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Mango and pine aroma, with a mild bitter taste with a long finish. Aroma is great didnít really pick up the Belgian yeast. I very much enjoyed this twist on the Hoptologist.

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.

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

badpuppy69 (218) - orange, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
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.

On tap at Capitol Beer abd Taproom. Pours a very light orange /copper hue with aids white head with great lacing. Aroma is belgian yeast, citrus, pine, sweet malts, banana, pepper and cloves, spicy hops, and candied fruits. Taste is about the same with some boozy notes. Medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a dry, moderately bitter, slightly boozy, medium finish. Quality belgian DIPA but a bit strong ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
