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.

Dry pine mixed with yeast in aroma. The flavor is hoppy with a decent maltiness and a dry finish. Among the better examples of the style.

Amber with a thick head. A decent bit of malt and lots of hops bitterness with a touch of citrus riding along. The Belgian yeast is there - mostly in the background

rajendra82 (982) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011
The beer looked pumpkin colored, with a thick three finger thick head that looked very creamy. The aroma was a mix of sour cherries, orange peel, and grapefruit. The taste was dominated by the bittering hops followed by a floral rosewater like flavor. There was a touch of lemony sourness as well. Very refreshing and light feel, and a tart finish. The approachable nature made this a very easy to drink beer.

Pours a hazy deep gold with a big frothy white head. Aroma is a big floral hop bomb with big yeasty aromas. Taste is a nice big body, big, big floral hops, probably Centennial. Big love.

Cybercat (4088) - Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Strong aroma is yeasty and hoppy with a hint of apple. It pours a luscious dark golden amber with a nice, if not persistent, pale golden tan head that leaves some decent lacing. Flavor is fairly hoppy, although quite fruity, more Belgian than IPA but still tasty. Smooth texture has average body and a fair amount of fizz. Overall, not outstanding but still worthy.

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around, with roasted for the malt, grapefruit and orange for the hops, musty for the yeast, with hints of banana, peach, pear and berry in the background. Head is average size, frothy turning wispy, off-white with a small ring of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is muddy amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly to moderately acidic turning moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Nice balance between all three components in this Belgian IPA. Great fruity aromas and flavors to boot.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
In short: A yeasty and very bitter ale (orange peels, grapefruits) with strong spiciness.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed very fresh one month after bottling date.
The look: Somewhat cloudy amber-orange body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is full of yeasty spiciness (something that resembles coriander), oranges and banana bread. Basically the aroma is mostly yeast-related and from the nose I would have never guessed this was an IPA. Taste is more of the same, more spicy Belgian than IPA, except that the beer is very bitter. The taste has a lot of oranges with both sweet oranges and bitter orange peels. Also candied fruits, dried fruits, plain cookies, curaçao, candi sugar, bitter grapefruits. The strong bitterness is sharp and aggressive blending both bitter orange peels and bitter grapefruits. Not a bad beer abut a bomber was enough, the spiciness was building up and by the end of the bomber it was just too much for me. Probably not something I will buy again. Clown Shoes seem to enjoy giving their beers vulgar names with sexual connotations, I don’t approve such vulgarity, women with a tramp stamps are just like regular women except that they have a special tattoo and most also have their belly bottom pierced to hang a hair freshener.

omhper (21423) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2011
Bottled at Cask Pub and Kitchen, London. Clear amber, rich firm head. Tangerine aroma. Sweet with above medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Marzipan and slight grapefruit hops. Long bitter finish. After all the fuzz this beer has created I would have expected a flattish lifeless beer supported only by a clever marketing scheme. I am glad to realize my assumpion were incorrect - this is a pleasant, laid back Belgo IPA.
