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.

Marduk (7022) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 15, 2012
1 pint bottle. Dark caramel color. Medium size off-white head appears and stays. Hops dominates the aroma. Quite mellow and smooth to drink. I cant say its oily or buttery, but strangely it goes down so quickly and smoothly that I have feeling that its greased up. I cant feel that 7% in taste or aroma, but there is certain warm feeling running down my throat with every sip. Mellow hoppy-sweet bitterness. Quite drinkable.

FatPhil (15355) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2012
660ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) - Bottled 2012-02, drunk 2012-11
On pouring theres a nice aromatic hoppiness, but alas thats mostly gone when its sat in the glass - probably due to the age. Slightly dusty aroma. Palate has an oily buttery aspect, and is generally quite smooth. Sweet caramelly body, not saying 7%, but with a gently warmth certainly. Slightly lemony in places. Finish has a dry tingly bitterness. Late finish is quite nutty. Slightly slimy feel from the sweetness, and I presume the butteriness is diacetyl, which would also contribute to sliminess. This would probably be better fresh, I do like the bitterness though, which is probably enhanced by the age, and thats not a bad thing.

Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is typical Belgian blonde with some hoppy bitterness. Taste is much the same. Will modify later.

RexTalionis (3674) - FINLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Cloudy light brown in color with a frothy off-white head. Fruity, some spices, yeast and slightly grassy bitter hops in aroma. Bitter, grassy and sweet malty in taste with some belgian yeast in aftertaste also. Decent.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a fairly thick white head. Nice little bit of hoppiness on the nose, but the head blocks a lot of the smell. Taste has a nice bit of bitterness to it, but it finishes a little dirty.

keepersj12 (3085) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Ok, maybe it was the label that got my attention but the beer was good too. Marketing and artwork are under rated. Poured a clear amber with a white head. The aroma was very nice with sweet malt and Belgian spices. The flavor started sweet and the hops balanced out the finish. Dry and refreshing.

Doughy, somewhat straw/barnyard, hops, and alcohol fill out the aroma. It is nice and cloudy with an amber/golden color and pretty good lacing. It has a definite bite, not much bubblegum, more of a bitter dryness thats familiar but hard to describe. Straw? Mulch? Earth? The smell of cut grass starting to compost? I like it!

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2012
This was an interesting beer. I ended up wit ha ton of yeast in the pour, so it was kind of a muddy orange. Aroma was spicy, yeasty, good malt notes and a lot of earthiness. Flavor was kind of a pleasant kick in the face. Huge hop presence, very bitter, but also some citrus and spicy notes. I kept cringing but going back for more. Id get this again.
