Not much Belgian spice unless that gave it the orange tone in this IPA which had a nice hop combination with its malt base keeping it well balanced but letting the hops shine through. Iím guessing the reason there is more of a fruity than citric overtone is through the yeast. Thanks Kevin C.

The pour produces a mostly clear orange body with a small white head.
Interesting hop aroma; more melon than the usual citrus or pine.
The flavor is balanced towards the hop bitterness, but the malt support keeps it line.
It says Belgian IPA on the label, but I donít get much Belgian here.

Poured a hazy orange and golden color, medium head. Aroma of fresh orange peel, spices, citrus hop. Medium light sweet, medium bitter. Medium body, a little sticky texture, above ave carbonation. This is one of the more hoppy belgium ipas that ive had. Gotta give praise because the hop flavor/aroma is really fresh and it has a nice belgium flare. Nice stuff.

Bomber. This is my Clown Shoes cherry buster, and I didnít realize that Clown Shoes was brewed at Ipswich. Itís also about time they named a beer after your motherís lower lumbar region. Anyway, on to the review. The pour is hazy deep orangy copper with big 3-finger off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose is tropical fruity hops, tangerine, rock sugary caramel malt. Tastes rock sugary caramal malty, with big tropical fruit flavors, including orange peel, pineapple, and some dry florals and white peppery spice in the finish. Gets assertively resiny and hoppy as it warms.

First from this brewery...22Bottled 10/11, cloudy tangerine hue with creamy diminishing white head, smells of yeast, tasted more sour orange peel than sweet, decent mix of these 2 styles, didnít get that much in the way of hops though

Belgian background really present in the aroma, indicative of a nice tripel. Taste is completely surprising with belgian yeast in the front which settles into a nice citrusy IPA. Good balance and blend between the two. Interesting beer for sure.

Bottled 8/11. The pour is medium amber to orange with a long-lasting foamy head. Loads of citrus and hop aromas on the nose. The body is smooth and medium. The taste has a touch of orange peel, moderately bitter hops, and clean finish.
