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.

Unfiltered Amber Brown beer with a Large head. The sent is great, the taste is less impresive. Aroma of citra and armadillo hops, the taste has some of the sweetness from belgian beers and the turfing bitter aftertaste from IPAs. Overall a Great beer, for all occations!

Varsgod hr r receptet p den perfekta identitetsstlden. r jag en belgare eller r jag en amerikan eller vad r jag fr ngot? Inga ID-kort i vrlden kommer att lyckas med nationalitetsbestmningen. Inledningvis r aromen humlig med en smygande belgisk jstton medan smaken sin sida r mer belgisk n amerikansk med balans mellan malt och jst med en del humle i bakgrunden. Fr vidare utredning br DNA-expert anlitas.

EerieDrinks (103) - Malm, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2016 Apparently, the swedish version. Half a finger white head. Deep amber coloured beer.Aroma is citrusy with candied fruit. A bit funky with tart. Hoppy hints too. Taste is funky and bitter upfront with a hoppy and citrusy finish. Earthy at the back. Just slides through the mouth and doesn?t do anything special. Since I?m rating this as IPA, I?m not impressed. The back of the taste is actually very nice but it somehow doesn?t make up for the rest. Ok, but nothing more.

Bottle 355 ml, Swedish alias "Monastic". Yellowish-brown with a white head. Yeasty and hoppy aroma. More m alt in the taste. A bit peculiar combo of earthiness and hop.

bartlebier (3767) - 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.

djoeye (4298) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2016
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.
