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

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.

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.

Draft. Mango and pine aroma, with a mild bitter taste with a long finish. Aroma is great didn’t really pick up the Belgian yeast. I very much enjoyed this twist on the Hoptologist.

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.

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

The spicy aroma dominates the pour and comes at me like a shelter puppy lookin’ for a new home. A soft, white, half-inch head tops the amber brew and lifts the scent of caramel and heavily spiced banana out of the glass with a vengeance. The lacing is thick and persistent on the glass, coating the sides and drying sticky in minutes. The taste is heavy, but the palate almost light and a little sticky, as if the two were wrestling to dominate the beer. Instead, the fight balances the adventure. Very bitter, but not unpleasant, very spicy and almost peppery with a perfect amount of carbonation that persists through the bottle. A long bitter finish for a brew with flavors like this almost always bring me around to thoughts of more, and this brew does not disappoint. I’m glad I have a bomber...one more glass....why wouldn’t I?

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
