COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like a stamp on a tramp, this beer is about not so subtle seduction. Soft but complex malts, Chambly yeast, sweet orange peel, Columbus, Amarillo, and Centennial hops have merged to create a bodacious Belgian IPA.

Bomber at riffs house. Poured golden with touch of amber. Aroma of piney hops set the stage. Hops much stronger than malty flavored write up. Light hazy off white head and grassy, pain taste with malt after taste in the hops.

Pours amber/ruby with a medium white/tan head...nice lacing! Aroma is fruity with subtle hoppiness. Flavor is more bitter than the aroma suggests but still fruity...light clovey, yeasty notes. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a bitter, dry finish.

Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Citrus, juicy orange tropical fruit on the nose. Yeasty, some funk, old dusty hops. Aggressively bitter. Earthy. Nice.

From notes. First reviewed 7/12/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a stange. Thanks to readbaron for picking this up. Out of the bottle, this pours a cloudy amber brown, with burnt orange edges. A frothy off-white head displays good retention and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of candi sugar, weak Belgian spicy yeast, and citrusy hops. My palate is almost overwhelmed with the burst of candi sugar sweetness up front. The yeast strain is fairly weak, which fails to provide much of the spiciness that I generally like in Belgians and BIPA’s, and it also prevents a smooth transition from the sweet maltiness up front to the hop presence. The hop presence adds a strong bitterness, but the flavor is somewhat hidden. Grapefruit and orange rind are the most noticeable flavors. The bitterness grows sip after sip - there is never that palate ’reset’ that makes Belgian IPA’s so clean and interesting. The lingering bitter aftertaste detracts from the flavor. Mainly due to the intense sweetness and light, creamy carbonation, the body feels fuller than medium, despite being only 7%. More crisp carbonation might help to remove those pesky hop oils off the tongue and create more balance in the flavor. This is a style I really enjoy for the balance and juxtaposition of flavors, but this really just came up short for me.

The yeast. orange, and hops come together nicely in this beer. A bit of of a suger/candy taste give it a nice sweetness. I really like this beer.

2/23/12. 22oz bottle thanks to MrRomero during RBWG 2012! Slightly hazed orange pour with a nice foamy khaki head that sticks around and laces plenty. Slightly funky yeasty aroma with bubblegum and definite pale malts along with a touch of citrus. Funky taste as well, yeasty and malty with lingering bitter hops and a bit of citrus. Finishes on the slightly tart and dry side. Nice!

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Hazy orange-amber body. Medium sized off-white head. Spotty lacing. S: Orange, pine, Belgian yeast, and a hint of floral notes. T: Similar to the nose. Mostly orange, floral notes, and spicy Belgian yeast. M: Medium bodied, slightly sweet, faint bitterness, assertive carbonation. O: Interesting, but a bit off, the bitterness of the orange and the spicy fruitiness of the yeast clashed a bit.
