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 (3009) - 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.

Solid IPA with Belgian assertations, but certainly with an American hoppy kick to it. Complex and powerful...

Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2016
Yellow to orange. Huge frothy head. Hoppy flavor with lots of yeast, belgian style, and some more acidy hints, citrus, fermented fruit etc. Bit sweet, bit bitter, bit refreshing, bit stale. No hit.

mile (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. Light golden, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, some floral fruitiness, some herbal hoppyness. 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.

Bottle. Pours nicely amber, clear. Nose has a very peculiar fruityness; pineapple, mango, exotic fruits, but also a greenish quality (currants?). There’s also some yeast esters, belgian in style. Body is nicely full, bitter. More of the belgian esters, fruityness. A bit fruit-tea like actually. A very fruity ale with a intriguing mixture of flavours. Not bad, but perhaps a bit too much all over the place to be drunk regularly. The bitter / over-extracted tea-bad finish doesn’t sit well with me.

Hazy amber with a large, thick head.
Aroma is floral hops, goose berries and nettles.
Dry flavour with notes of floral hops and nettles. Long bitterness.
Earlier Rating: 4/9/2016 Total Score: 3.6
Hazy amber with a large, thick head. Sour aroma with notes of floral hops, yeast and berries. Very floral hop flavour with a long, big and dry bitterness.
Not too shabby, perhaps a bit simple.
