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.

Fridge temp out of the bottle is a little harsh. I get way too much booze for 7%. By the second half of the bomber it warms up and gets quite enjoyable. Nice balance of citrus hops and belgian ester tang. The yeast gives it a little creaminess.

MarkoR (732) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2015
355 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is a nice balance between hops and malt, citrus. Taste has a bit too much orange zest for my taste. Very complex and interesting in the mouth.

beer-yum (883) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2015
Impressive ’Belgian’ aroma in an Amber pour. Taste is impressively ’Belgian’ too with a nice balance between hops and malt. An ’American’ take on the style - that maybe lacks a little of the subtle complexity of the masters.

martjoobolut (1711) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Decent hoppy-soapy (I guess it’s the Belgian yeast) brew.

TorbenJensen (831) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2015
It smells nice and fresh by little apricot and orange peel and hops. The taste is slightly sweet fruit, while hops is lurking a little in the background. Hops behaves more like a fountain from which overturns a veritable cascade of hops notes out in the mouth. Lovely fruity hops with semi-dry aftertaste. Very delicious IPA.

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Appearance is hazy gold to amber, creamy foam. Aroma is toast, fruit and melon, slight yeast. Taste is melon flavors with a hint of citrus. Palate is medium carbonation, soft in the mouth, creamy. Pretty decent.

CrookedNine (18) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
I got this in a 4-pack box pf 355 mL bottles. It poured a soft sunset colour into my glass with a thin head. Bubbly, but not overly so. The aroma was of lychee and sweet tropical candy. The taste was subtle, with well rounded malt notes and a complex bitterness from the hops. The yeast definitely lent itself to this beer. I enjoyed it, but didn’t really taste the "Belgian-ness" of this one. Still, would drink this again.

rouhlas (1351) - GREECE - JUL 22, 2015
650ml bottle. Light hazy golden orange color with off white head. Hoppy, malty and yeasty aroma, citrusy fruity, orange, caramel, spicy yeasty. Sweet and light bitter taste. Medium oily body with soft carbonation

Spännande. Jästig som en Belgare men med beska som en IPA. Jag gillar den fruktiga känslan! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radio_nowhere (1217) - Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle into snifter glass, cloudy amber-hued golden color with tan head. Aroma notes of grapefruit/citrus hops, some pine, Belgian yeast, tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, peach), light spices and bread. Taste adds some banana, clove, yeast funk, toast and earthy/peppery bitterness. Medium body, moderate-heavy carbonation, dry, crisp with lingering grapefruit/peppery bitter finish. Taste certainly is a change from the aroma, and a tad too much carbonation. Still a tasty interesting Belgian IPA.

weihenweizen (2270) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2015
12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Aroma is nice grapefruit, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is grapefruit hops and orange. Good IPA.
