4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy, bright orange in color with a fine white head, this beer has a very oily aroma of floral, herbal, slightly spicy hops that are fresh and sharp on the nose. Nomnom! A touch of bready sweetness balances things out as the light, but soft mouthfeel cozies my palate up to a dash of caramel malts. This is very effervescent, oily, herbal, sharp, and almost floral. Really, really beautiful.

In a trade-thanks, Roy! Slightly cloudy copper. Malty, caramel nose, donít get a lot of hops or belgian yeast notes. Malty, slightly dank IPA, but prefer this to the original based on memory. No Simtra but a solid DIPA.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
I had the Simtra Triple IPA awhile back and it was fabulous! I thought this would be the same. WRONG! Crystal clear. No sediment at all....Suck! I will never buy another BELGO again! Unless itís from Dieu de Ciel but I doubt they would even make one. If you make a beer like this it should be the best of both styles instead of the worst characteristics of each style. Some mild florals and caramel malt. The flavor is sweet and candy like with lime, citrus, caramel, florals, clove and a rather off putting phenolic and alcohol character that makes this a bit difficult to drink. Barely passable. This beer sucks!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has been a couple of years since the Belgian IPA craze. Combination of pine, slight citrus and yeasty bread. Clear copper with a white head. Citrus more present on the flavor. Yeast well represented. Moderate high bittering. A little in unbalanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a copper orange with a two finger off white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, citrus, pine, sweet malts, banana, pepper and cloves, spicy hops, and candied fruits. Taste is about the same as the aroma but as the light boozy notes which detracts from the beer. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a dry, moderately bitter, slightly boozy, medium finish. Overall, a pretty good belgian DIPA that could do without some of its boozy notes.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours an amber color with a bit of head. Intense hopiness and the belgian yeast flavor is overpowered.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber purchased at BevMo in Escondido ($6.99). Pours a hazy golden-orange hue with one finger of white foam. AROMA of loquat, apricot, nectarine, citrus spicy hops, and white wine. FLAVOR with lots of fruit (tangerine, grapefruit, red grape, apricots, peaches), pine needles, and herbal and spicy hops, with a bit of bready malts. Nice mixture of traditional DIPA flavors with some extra interesting fruitiness from the Belgian yeast fermentation. Still finishes fairly bitter. The high ABV is fairly well concealed. A pretty good effort on a "style" that is hard to do. (28, 840)

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!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours from bomber a clear amber with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a ring of foam and decent lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, pine, sweet malts, banana, pepper and cloves, spicy hops, and candied fruits. Flavour of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, orange rind, clove, pepper, bubblegum, pine, floral, light honey, light banana, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish. Good stuff....
