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.

Une belle découverte dégustée en agréable compagnie (GarnotingPete entre autre). Un intéressant mariage entre le type belge et l’IPA. Beaucoup d’arômes, une belle couleur et un col juste comme il faut. Elle est riche, on sent l’alcool et il y a de l’amertume à souhait. Équilibrée et intense.

jjsint (645) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, London. Hazy amber/copper with a thin white head. Fresh yeasty aroma with apricots, bananas and butterscotch. Taste is bittersweet (more bitter than sweet it has to be said) with a long kumquat bitter finish and aftertaste. It isn’t terribly original or innovative but it’s very good for what it is.

steelhead3686 (220) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a very hazy golden color with a medium white head. A bit more hops than malt. The hops are spruce or pine with a hint of resin. The malt is roast with a hint of nuts. It has a medium to heavy bitter taste. The palate is a medium body with a slight sticky texture but somewhat creamy. Overall this is a good beer. It has a decent balance and nice presentation. I’m not sure I would buy it in a bar though.

This is surprisingly good. Not so much Belgian as it is terrific IPA. Sweetness, briny nose, funk in the middle, finishes funky as well.

Sorry, i wasn’t really paying attention to aroma. I was playing guitar or something when i was drinking this beer. Let me see what my note says... Dry. Hoppy. A touch of fruitiness.

DialSquare (2526) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
12oz bottle from one of the Andersons in Toledo. Murky orange pour with a big frothy off-white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, spices, pepper, fruit, candy sugar. Tastes are sweet biscuity, floral, spice - balanced pretty well with a lemon and orange rind, floral bitter. More fruity than bitter overall though. Not my thing typically, but well put together and drinkable.

flying_pig (898) - SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2014
355ml Bottle from Brewdog’s Online Shop (£3.00):
& lively with lots of orange & strong citrus, some yeast & lemon follow. Definitely Belgian influenced with nice hops & good bitterness. Nice & complex with some coriander & various fruits such as apricot & peach plus some tropical fruits.
Clear amber with a creamy looking head that is very slightly off-white & holds really well.
Plenty of citrus & tropical fruits, namely the orange with a bitter backing & some peaches & plum. Faint malts & some hops feature with Belgian influenced yeast making a cameo along with further tropical fruits.
Smooth & medium with solid bitterness & an excellent mouthfeel with some sweetness. Balance is good with a citrus tang in there too. Lively with medium carbonation & it proved a very easy one to drink.

An incredibly good beer, plenty of bitterness & citrus flavours with a solid tropical fruit backing that was great. This one is a much try from Clown Shoes, I’m already looking forward to picking it up again sometime soon if I can.

355ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Soft foamy white head dissipates quickly, good lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is orange, pine, brown sugar. Flavours of grass, grapefruit, molasses, caramel. Finish is slightly dry and quite short. Mouthfeel is thick, a little sticky, light carbonation. The ABV is fairly apparent, don't think I could drink too much.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle from the BrewDog website. Poured a clear amber, with a thin white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, orange and caramel; very pleasant Belgian golden ale smells. Tropical fruits in the flavour, with some bready malt and citrus. Finish was grassy hop, ginger, yeast esters and marmalade. Very good IPA/ Belgian Golden hybrid; I’d say that it leaned more to the Belgian side of things.
