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.

Pours a copper clear orange with a thick white head and decent lacing. Aroma is banana, belgian yeast, and hops. The taste is begian candi sugar, floral hops and belgian yeast. Very well balanced, a good beer.

LilBeerDoctor (3440) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-brown with a small white head. Aroma of hop oils with orange peel and spices in the background. Some nice caramel malts and tropical fruits. A hint of melon rind and Belgian yeast. Mostly IPA-forward, but the Belgian presence adds that extra little something. Great Belgian IPA. 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

djd07 (3481) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Bomber bottle. Pours a murky copper with a large frothy white head with very sticky lacing. The aroma is yeast clove banana and orange peel. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter malt and yeast with a bitter finish. A good IPA from Clown Shoes.

Maverick34 (2217) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pours a bright orange brown. Fair amount of head. Clean hops smell, some mild floral and citrus. OK.

chickenflea (332) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold-orange color with a small white head. Aroma of pine and floral hops. Belgian yeast is noticeable but now what I would call strong. Flavor of pale malts, grass, and floral hops. The bitterness increases as the beer warms to be the primary profile of the beer. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. The Belgian character really is very subdued compared with other Belgian IPA’s that I have had. This is not a bad thing. But it is different. A nice beer.

pete4999 (1034) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle, as pictured. Pours a hazy orange-brown with minimal head. Smells very fruity, citrusy, and flowery. Flowers in particular come through later on. Taste is similar, though it’s spicier than I was expecting - peppery and hoppy at the same time. Pretty good.

MaBeer1972 (1285) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 5, 2011
A cloudy light orange-amber brew with good carbonation. Complex bready-fruit aromas. Flavor is also complex. Malty and hoppy, but with a twist of orange. Smooth drinking. Very good overall.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Appearance: massive huge bubbly head is held aloft by an equally massive stream of bubbles. Head is pithy mousse while the brew below was brilliant burnt coppers and blood oranges.
Nose: orange zest, white grapefruit, lemon and lemon zest. Pine needles. Freshly mown grass. Honeyed oats and grains. Dried flower petals. Sunflowers, ferns, and fir.
Palate: clean then sticky and mouth-coating. Sweet than bitter. Green grass dominates the middle. Grapefruit flesh and skin and pine weave together seamlessly. Spice and throughout. Dried flowers, dried cut grass. Long bitter citrus peel finish – dryness of pith and zest of orange, grapefruit, and lemon.
Final Thoughts: another delicious beer from Clown Shoes Beer and, contrary to some hoity-toity people, I like their label artwork, Tramp Stamp included. Yum!

Tmoney99 (10581) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle. Poured a cloudy amber color with an average creamy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium yeasty bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
