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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
