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.

Roonai (305) - - SEP 4, 2011
On tap at flying saucer Houston. P is a hazy chestnut orange with a white head that laces nicely. Nose is deep sweet citrus hops. Taste is the same with a tons more bitter rind than expected. But I love the depth of balancing the sweet and bitter. Fairly complex beer that is enjoyable but one glass is good for me.
