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. This is my Clown Shoes cherry buster, and I didn’t realize that Clown Shoes was brewed at Ipswich. It’s also about time they named a beer after your mother’s 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, didn’t 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.

JanLaursen (3088) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar: Unclear orange beer with a huge white head and good lacing. Slighly tart hoppy aroma with notes of caramel, yeast, mandarin, orangepeel. Taste is sweet, smooth yet slightly astringent, very fruity, loads of citrusy notes, some yeast. Long, bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Delicious.

Det här hade kunnat vara mycket bättre, den här ölen är alldeles för besk för sitt eget bästa. Jag får medge att det fanns stunder då inte beskan tog över fullständigt och då var ölen löjligt trevlig. Men det känns inte rättvist att recensera den efter de sammanlagda 1,5s som den var bra. Utöver sin överdrivet generösa beska präglades smaken av mycket citrus.

Bomber from ericandersnavy - thanks for this one guy! Pours hazy copper/amber with a foamy near-beige head. Aroma is belgian yeast with some earthy notes. Near full bodied. Flavor is yeasty, zesty, floral, resin and definitely earthy. Arguably barnyard. My mouth is getting twisted. Astringency strikes. Good stuff!

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a ruddy brown, topped with a decent layer of white foam. The aroma is nice -- sweet grape juice, yeast, and a predominate dose of pineapple. It drinks with the expected decidedly fruity character, the same pineapple essence fading a bit in favor of a wheaty, grassiness, and a burst of yeasty breadiness. (#4444, 1/14/2012)
