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.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle poured into glass. Dark amber brown color with a big fluffy head. Aroma full of hop character along with hints of citrus and orange peel. Earthy piney flavor, bitter with a good bit of hops there. Not too much malt to speak of but still a decent beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Great name, average beer. Grapefruit, orange pith, lemon peel, Pinesol, caramel, and toffee along with leafy/grassy notes. Sounds so much better than it tasted. Not at all balanced...seems disjointed. Not a fan.

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.
