There's 12 ounces of beer to drink before I decide to get dinner started. On to the beer:

It's a toasted orange colored beer, topped with a somewhat sturdy head, which leaves creamy lacing around the glass. A dry aroma at first, one which slowly opens towards a note of funk, pineapple, and vague spice.

Tramp Stamp is surprisingly dry for an American-made, Belgian-style IPA. Usually this style involves throwing a bunch of hops in with a beer fermented with Belgian yeast. This is closer to the more traditional Belgian-style IPA. The beer starts dry with a kiss of grass. Still dry all around with notes of white pepper, funk, and a note of orange. It's not very bitter, and the beer has a medium body with a somewhat smooth feel.

This will get my appetite going later tonight.

Pours a pale amber color with an off white head. The smell is full of hops in front but with some sweet fruits and spices like banana and clove on the end. The taste was very nice with a lot of citrus and grass flavors up front from the hops and a very clean finish from the malt on the finish. Not bad and not too expensive, I'll probably be picking this one up again.
