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.

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap at Cask Republic. Pours hazy dark orange with thin foamy off-white head. Clean aroma, citrus. Bright well balanced bitter with salt and sweet flavor, carried by medium body, with a smooth natural carbonation. Smooth transition to a fresh, light aftertaste. Overall a sophisticated brew that presents itself plainly. I like it.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits and grapefruit with hints of pine and cereal grains. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with nice carbonation that tickles the tongue. Not getting much Belgian on this brew, but certainly tasty and recommended.

Great name but is it an insult to Belgians? I haven’t been but don’t imagine they have more tattoo parlours than say California. Not sure about Massachusetts either. That is a hard word to spell and doesn’t have a jingle like M I SS I SS I P I. Speaking of subtlety, who would expect subtlety from a clown. I know these aren’t dancing shoes. I find the beers to all be big and bold. I like the dominant flavours, particularly in the dark beers, but over time I prefer some delicacy of flavor and mouth feel. The Tramp Stamp has a nice dark golden amber with a nice white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is big, bold and exciting. The beer has a heavy mouth feel, a bit sticky and the Belgian yeast quality seems to be shouting to be heard over the hops. Belgian yeast, citrus and pepper. Bring in the tiny waisted girls for the high wire and send out the clowns.

Brentv (354) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2014
From bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a fluffy yellow-tinted white head. Aroma of citrus and mango, fruity and floral. Taste is malty and lightly sweet, not caramel, with lots of citrus and fruit. Slightly bitter finish. Nice IPA.

closey22 (888) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Hazy dark amber with thin lacy beige head; aroma is hoppy piney; Flava is blend of sweet tangy malt and spicy woody hops and a hint of alcohol; feels medium creamy little fizz; finishes dry and subtly sweet then strong bitter hop twang

On tap at One Flew South Atlanta airport. Flew back again to get this beer. Interesting slightly earthy aroma. Great head. Several different flavors, fruity, citrus, killer hops. Dryish. Some might think it too complex. Very drinkable.

Amber color with a small white head. Aroma is a bit sour smelling with some pine, caramel, and citrus. Flavor is big and resiny. Some sour lemons and grapefruit going on. Overall I taste little belgian just big malty IPA.

mathieuc (1280) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a nice golden with a medium white head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is of fruits (tangerines, orange), sugar and spices. Taste is lightly sweet and fruity, bitter but to a lesser level than your usual american IPA. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high. Overall this didn’t felt too belgian except for the fruit and slight spices but it was still really good and well made!

czar (4364) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
pours hazy bright orange with a creamy and frothy off-white-orange head, good retention and lacing. juicy phenols - mangoes, tropical, light bananas, cloves and other spices, fresh citrus and soft pine needles, sweetish lightly toasted pale maltiness, sweet marzipan, honey but also candied fruits - sweet ginger and orange peel, just a bit of barley sugar as sweetness comes more from added fruits rather than malts, very yeasty too - spicy and very fruity. average carbonation, light tom edium body - oily, semi-sweet very spicy-citrusy finish. my thang - very good.
