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. daleharshman (1086) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 10, 2014
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) salvaticas (1051) - - JAN 13, 2015
On tap at Top Hops NY. Very fruity and light on the nose. Pours a bright clear golden Amber. Light finish but nicely bitter and hoppy

I’m starting early on IPA day!! Strong skunky, cat urine (in a good way if that’s 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!!

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....

Nice double ipa. Lots of juicy hops with herbal notes. A little onion as well. Alcohol is very present here.

3 ounce sampler at the Taproom in Auburn, slight fruity aroma, banana esters, a little spicy. BLADT (701) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2014
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. njager246 (699) - grand rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2015
