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.

Bottle courtesy of mtjoseph. Pour is a hazy copper orange color with a small fluffy white head. Orange, fresh cut grass, coriander, and bubble gum make up the aroma. Flavor contain orange peels throughout with some coriander. Slightly yeasty. No apparent bitterness. Well balanced between belgian yeast and american hops. My favorite of the style.

Bomber. Pours a new copper penny, orange with a decent sized frothy head that diminished to film on top. Aroma of bready yeast, orange, slight spice, and some floral hops. This light bodied IPA is quite pleasant yet a tad soapy. The yeast isn’t overpowering in the flavor and is a nice compliment to juicy orange slices and some (coriander?) spice. Really doesn’t have any sort of bitter finish, which is nice, but just a tad more of a acidic hop kick would have been nice.

Pours hazy burnt orange color with off white head. Belgian yeast aroma with some citrus and pine. Doughy Belgian yeast flavor with moderate bitterness and some pine and grapefruit. Medium body with average carbonation.

Bomber, fresh. Pours moderately hazy with a dark, dusky, burnt orange-amber hue. A thick, frothy head of light khaki foam is slow to fade, leaving dense surface clumps and slow moving, jagged lace. The nose is quite hoppy, showing notes of sharp orange pith, oily citrus rind, and peppery wildflowers most prominently. A hint of pine also wafts in, all over big toasted cracker and mild cereal malts. Flavors largely follow suit, fairly well balanced between the pithy citrus-pine hops and semi-dry, toasty grain malts. The oily orange peel lends a hint of candied fruit sweetness, but not enough to challenge the relative dryness of the hops and grain. The palate is semi-dry and fairly light on carbonation, bordering on lifeless at points. While it is (thankfully) not sticky, it also fails to excite or refresh. Overall, a decent Belgian IPA. I don’t have too much to complain about.

Bomber. Hazy & heavily hopped. Strong Belg yeast upfront followed by hopped out spice. Orange peel is...ok.

22oz Bottle, shared at RIFT. Nice rich, dense C-hop aroma, sweet and together. Flavors were rich and clean too. This is definitely one of those IPAs that should probably just be a Double IPA, by adding a little more gravity, because it’s already pretty sweet. I love the flavors that come out of this beer, but I could never drink much of it. I do think the yeast and orange muddle a little bit.

Botella en Ølbutikken, thanks Morten! Hazy nice golden colour. Fresh citrus ripe fruity hoppy aroma. Good mouthfeel. Very pleasant fruity citrus exotic fruity hoppy flavour, well lasting bitterness, dry bitter indeed, yum!

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 20, 2011
(22oz bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours hazy copper color with chunky off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aroma has fresh cut grass, dank hops, cracked pepper and light orange! Taste is sweet and malty with some peppery bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Bitter finish. An Ok beer, but I probably wouldn’t search it out.

Nice sweet complex aroma. Honey, Grapefruit, Clove, and hop notes. Average sized head. Taste is more grapefruit, pine, caramel malt. Slight fizz of carbonation. Finishes very bitter and dry. Overall impressions are that it’s a bit disorganized... I get the Belgain and the IPA flavors, they just don’t seem to be working in harmony on this one. Too bad because I wanted to like it too. Maybe I have become spoiled, but by the end it was a chore to drink. Enjoyability: 1.5/5
