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.

dyetube (1181) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle from kegs and barrels. This beer pours a rich copper for with a medium white head. The aromas are pine, grapefruit, dough, musk, old closet. The mouthfeel is slightly hitter and slightly watery with a medium body. Nice here. Cheers!

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with white head. Aroma of mixed citrus, hint of banana, farmhouse, yeasty bread. Flavor is much the same with a dry hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, interesting brew!

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Hazy orange with a large, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has notes of grapes, green apples, citrus, pine, tangerine, orange peel. Medium carbonation, fine frothy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, there is a bit of brett feel to it, though I suspect its just the hops. Dry, piney, tangerine, orange peel, still some grapes in there. Very lovely beer.

Bottle.
Pours a deep cheddar orange with a thick white head. Aroma is peachy grapefruit bread. Flavor is doughy grapefruit, orange rind bitters, and a slight finish of sweet cinammon bread. Nice mouthfeel. Perty good.

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2011
On tap at Whole Foods. Coudy orange brew with a thick head. Aromas of orange, resin, dank, and Belgian yeast. Slightly sweet, pine hops, more orange and nicely balanced.

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a thin, off white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is big on citrus, stone fruit, mango, a touch of spice and sweet malt. Flavor is caramel, sweet malt and a touch of shortbread cookie up front, finishing with big bitter grapefruit, some pine, herbal and a touch of tropical fruit, also just a hint of peppery, spicy Belgian yeast. Palate is medium bodied, slightly slick on entry immediately drying out, pretty highly carbonated and quite dry ( though increasingly slick as the glass empties) to the finish. Pretty tasty, the bitterness, though is bordering on medicinal, which lends to an odd finish.

ExpendableHero (748) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2011
A copper/hazy orange colored beer with a white head. Strong aromas of pine, and spruce. Tastes of bitter pine hops, hints of coriander, some citrus, and floral hops. A bit too bitter for my liking, not enough malt in this one. Dry finish, a good beer.

Ahhh the lure of the label..(and ass you can see..) Strong pungent nose of hops. Biting. Some yeasty bite as well but it is far overshadowed by the Centennial and Amarillo....damn Texans. Lovely golden in the glass with an appropriate head of fluffiness. First taste twisted my face....grapefruit, sour oranges and hops. Wheres the malt? Hmmm. I think I’ll try this one again when I’m not so tired.

Flaske: Orangegul uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er dejlig humlet, amerikansk med endel citrus, men frugtet fra gæren. Lover rigtig godt. Desværre er karboneringen ikke helt iorden. Smagen er ellers også i skabet. Næsten en suveræn øl, og bestemt en af mine favorittyper.

adam42381 (379) - Fort Myers, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a New Belgium globe. Bottled on 6/20/11 printed on label. Appearance: Pours a hazy orange caramel color with a 2-3 finger frothy off-white head. Excellent head retention. Nice lacing. Smell: Sweet citrus, pine and just a hint of Belgian yeast. Taste: Pine and bitter citrus up front followed by a touch of typical Belgian yeast notes in the middle before ending with more bitter citrus and a little bit of bready malt at the finish. Aftertaste is bitter. I don’t know if the hops have faded in under 3 months (probably), but I didn’t get the sweetness I had hoped for from the aroma. It was a very bitter beer for me, but I still liked the flavor. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Good drinkability. A single bomber will go down pretty easily. Overall: Very good beer overall. Despite all the controversy surrounding this beer (and other Clown Shoes releases), this one lives up to the hype. I’d recommend this one, especially to hopheads.
