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.

Very much covered the typically heavy hopped IPA! Lots of citrus and zesty aromatics!

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.

drjay44 (3522) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2013
650.6 ml bottle. Bottled 8/2012. Pours a thick well retained, ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is light pine, citrus, toffee/caramel, bare hint of funk......taste is pine, citrus peel, hints of orange peel, toffee/caramel sweetness, light acid, slight funk, finishing with a dry pine, citrus hop bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, minimally astringent, carbonation adds light tingle. This beer has been in the bottle for ten months, so I suspect some of the hop complexity and bitterness have mellowed out leaving a slightly old ale. That said, this is a nicely balanced beer, with good complexity in both the aromas and flavors. It is sort of a new age IPA typical of the nice experimentation within the style. It is neither an American nor an English IPA because of the light funk brought in by the yeast. BJCP 6/3/14/4/7

hayduke (5028) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours an orange to amber color with a really good sized light-beige head that left excellent lacing rings. Nose of ripe tropical fruit, and some citrus. Body is medium and the mouth feel is creamy any smooth. Flavor is caramel malts and bitter hps. The finish is quite bitter. Nice IPA.

Tap at Yard House in Marina del Ray. Solid Belgian spicy yeast atop DIPA. Clear red orange. Decent lace. Taste is spicy, orange peel. Palate is a tad soapy. Similar to Raging Bitch.

ComradeK (1165) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Spicy Belgian yeast, sweet orange, biscuit malt and a blend of floral and resin hops make up the aroma. Strong floral and spice hops up front mix with a touch of orange. Biscuit and light nutty malt notes interplay with sweetly spicy yeast in the mid-palate, with potent resin hops coming through in the finish. This beer is a very convincing blend of aggressive IPA hops and spicy Belgian yeast, with enough malt backbone to support both. Very nice.

stumpyiliz (217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2013
amber pour with little head. Slightly hazy from yeast sediment. Smells of orange zest and pine. Taste is astringently bitter with dry bitter lingering finish on te sides of the palate. Missing the malt backbone for this amount of hops. Belgian flavors are there from the yeast but this is nothing special.
