Belle bière de couleur orangée/ambrée opaque. De bonnes odeurs de houblon, de levure surette et de zeste d’orange s’attaquent aux narines. Un goût acidulé et houblonné est perçu instantanément en bouche, laissant une forte amertume qui reste longtemps en bouche, le tout accompagné d’une forte présence de levure.

Im not a fan of Muffin Top which is the imperial version of this beer, but I am a big fan of this one. Really spicy from the hops to the yeast all add a nice peppery spicyness with a sweet citrusy backbone. Finish is dry and spicy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grapefruit, apple, grape, mango, bubblegum, hay, floral, and a hint of cilantro greet the nostrils. Golden with slight leaning toward amber rests the ale, crowned by an inch of smooth white head that recedes to an uneven skin. It leaves drape like lacing in my New Holland High Gravity tulip. The taste is light sweetness followed by bracing bitterness, with an underlying aftertaste that escapes my description. Medium in body, the texture is oily and slick with soft carbonation. There is a bit of an astringency on the finish. I am very pleased to have found a bomber of Tramp Stamp, and would visit it again.

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.
