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.

DrnkMcDermott (2997) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2013
From the 2011 MWBF. Goes down like an American IPA. A lot of citrus and pine in the smell. Pours a nice orangey color with a fizzy head. Very forward on the citrus and the pine on the tongue, with a backing of Crystal malt.

mile (3787) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2016

Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light - some floral fruitiness and some herbal/citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light floral fruitiness some herbal/citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. OK bitterness but I am not a fan of these "Belgian twists" in well hoped brews.
