Bottled 11/2011

Tramp Stamp just put Clown Shoes at the top of MA breweries for me.

A deep orange body. Big white cap that fell pretty quick and left nice lace.

The taste is a wonderful blend of a hoppy Alpha hops American IPA and a yeasty Belgian style IPA. I tatse a range of flavors from bread dough to kiwi!! Fantastic.

Loved this one.

Poured from 22oz bomber.

A: lovely fire amber color with off-white fluffy head.

S: exceptional mix of fresh hops - I am a sucker for fresh Amarillo and Columbus. It is really is evident here and the yeast + a little warmth of the alcohol adds up to a nice level of complexity to the nose.

T: Exceptionally smooth. I find the taste similar to Nugget Nectar but a bit smoother.

O: Highly recommended this one!

This is sitting DIRECTLY in my wheelhouse!

This beer pours a gorgeous copper-reddish color with a slight haze to it. The head is a taupe-colored mess of goodness. I had to put my finger into it when I saw it and taste the foam and it was yummmmy.

The aroma, for me, is probably it's most stunning asset. Beautiful citrus fruits like grapefruit, tangerine, and blood oranges come through in wonderful fashion. A hint of pine and mint are mingled in there, with a touch of caramelized sugar to round it out.

The mouthfeel was rockin' as well. The fruits that are in the nose hit me almost instantly with a great fresh acidity and balance. Then a strong, but beautiful bitterness came in just in time (Like I said, "in my wheelhouse").

This is most definitely a beer that I will purchase again. It is something that instantly struck me as perfect for Asian cuisine and I will be making that pairing very soon. Cheers!

One of the best beers I have had in a LONG time!
I loved everything about this beer. The name, label art, smell, taste, everything. A perfect mix of American Ipa and Belgian. Can't say enough about this beer. I will definetly be heading back to the store to stock up on more Tramp Stamp!
