Ar a dentist appointment back in January I was told that my teeth were showing signs of grinding. I thought that the diagnosis was odd since my wife has seen me sleeping on the couch a million times and never said I grind. After brushing off the diagnosis, two weeks ago it hit me that I might have a problem. Headaches, jaw pain, and a chipped tooth later, I’m caving in and making a dentist appointment. Wish me luck, and if anyone wants to donate to the $350 nighttime mouth guard I have to buy, please contact me.
Tonight I’m sitting back watching some Bruins and drinking a Clown Show Tramp Stamp. Good beer, great label.
The Tramp pours a dark cloudy orange hue with a moderate head. During the pour, spicy aromas are obvious even without putting a nose to the glass. This Belgian IPA is much more Belgian than IPA. The malts, coriander and other unidentifiable spices mute out the hops that have been added. A hint of floral hops linger at the tail end.
The 7% ABV contributes to a medium body; for comparison, it’s no where near as heavy as a typical Belgian double. It’s a good beer.
