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.

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.

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2016
12oz bb.x. Willems&Zo Nov2016. - The tramp shines solidly in this one: C-hop citrus resin and actual orange peel reduced into the pale and crystal (?) malt plywood body. Oozes some sweet abv fumes, but is really missing a yeast soul. Could use some levity, but I guess that is what makes this style a Belgian IPA seen from the US-IPA side of the Atlantic. "not so subtle seduction" sounds fair enough. Sticky, piney hop jam doesnt travel all that well though, regardless of bb date. 10% drainpour.

Aroma; the mild forest, washing through a juicy environment, orange bread passing by, fruity dough too. Look; off white head, about clear golden amber body. Taste; hops, grapefruit, herbs, bread, roasted malts, orange peel - leading to a semi dry herbal finish. Feel; ok body, soft carbonation, semi dry feel. Overall; tasty herbal brew.

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