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.

    Amber color with a small white head. Aroma is a bit sour smelling with some pine, caramel, and citrus. Flavor is big and resiny. Some sour lemons and grapefruit going on. Overall I taste little belgian just big malty IPA.

    Pours a darker amber with a one finger head that takes its time. Strings of bubbles so it is well carbonated. Aroma is very strong of sweet hops and it is very bitter to the nose. Slightly fruity as well. Taste is of fruity hops and is sweet to the tongue. Very sticky ending and the sweet hop flavor stays a long time. Very good IPA.

    WTF is a "belgian-style IPA".... I had to find out. Nose is nice, orange and pine notes evenly balanced, good spice..pepper and cumin?... and a touch of sweetness from the malt bill, reminds me of honey...or maybe its just because this beer is beautiful in the glass, a medium honey-colored body is topped by an excellent frothy slightly -off-white head that is long lasting and has great lace. Ever so slightly cloudy with carbonation gently streaming up the sides, did I mention I love the look of this beer? Mouth is thickish and a bit creamy with a nice slickness and good tingle. I was scared of the flavor, what is a Belgian IPA and I am usually worried about ales "brewed with natural flavor"..I was picturing an IPA with a bunch of spices dumped into it, thank god its not. There is a sweetness to this IPA and it is not as hoppy as say, a West Coast hophead IPA, but its credentials are solid. Fruitier than most IPA's slightly reminds me of Hat #9's apricot but not nearly that fruity. The fruit and sweetness are in the front of the taste and are almost immediately countered with a good bitter hit, not flowery hops, not earthy, the orange is there but subtle. The Chambly yeast is, I suspect, what gives this its unique profile, pretty unusual in an IPA, it adds some spice and a round flavor found often in wits, a subtle play on a farmhouse flavor. Yes I am loving this!!!! Its bringing together my two favorite profiles, IPA and Saison and doing it damn successfully! Good grief I am shocked that this subtle brew is going to end up as my highest rated beer! This beer is a whole new world for me.

    Orange peel and grapefruit in the nose. A little yeast. Flavor is a bit more balanced between the two. Spicy dry citrus and pine. A little alcohol shows, but this is a nice beer. Not super fresh.

    Love the name, reminds me of a girl I knew once. Great breadth, yeasty nose. Light orange beer with a nice medium froth. Good aggressive hop bite up front with a clean finish mixed with hints of plum. Very dry and the hop character is almost more pale ale like than ipa, just a little too light.

    Sampled with KnoxBeerCrew. I really dig this style. Amber orange pour, white head, some lacing. Nice Belgian nose right away then quickly BOOM the hops are there - some slight pine, citrus and tropical fruits, floral - add in some nice sweet fruitiness and malts for good measure. Love the flavor, the Belgian yeasts melding with a nice dose of hoppiness and great bitter linger, just sweet enough to enjoy. This is a well-crafted BPA - very good for the style, which I love. Good stuff, GREAT label.

    Strong aroma is yeasty and hoppy with a hint of apple. It pours a luscious dark golden amber with a nice, if not persistent, pale golden tan head that leaves some decent lacing. Flavor is fairly hoppy, although quite fruity, more Belgian than IPA but still tasty. Smooth texture has average body and a fair amount of fizz. Overall, not outstanding but still worthy.

    Tramp stamp (funny name) nice beer, pours a hazy orange hued body, ok head and lace. Aromas and flavors of citrus hops and belgian yeasts, not very complex or outstanding but decent enough, a bit more yeast would have picked it up a bit.

    I want to have relations with ALex Morgan, just sayin .. . Pours a deep orange, decent foam .. . sugar, yeast, and light citrus and flowers .. . a pretty good example of a belgian ipa but i wanted the yeast to do more talking .. . My wife lies to me. My beer company betrays me. Americans are giving Mexicans diarrhea. What the hell is going on here?

    Nice. Pours fuzzy peach color with a fluffy fluffy head - tons of lacing. Aroma is sweet, mouth is OK, flavor is piney hoppy peppery backed with citus and sweet.
