Notes/Commercial Description:
Why are Miracle Mike and his dog, Bionic, being chased by many evil laser beam shooting cupcakes and two giant layer cake mother ships? Because we're straight lunatic fools? Well, maybe, but with a few brains cells remaining we managed to craft Space Cake double IPA, utilizing citrusy Mosaic hops and an immaculate West Coast style malt backbone. Dude... Chill out. Enjoy some Space Cake.

No visible bottling date.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into an Innis & Gunn English tulip and later, a Tree House tulip pint.

a: Hazy amber with an inch thick white head which receded to even surface foam and dense lacing.

sL Very mild bread malt and a bit of pine.

t; Resiny hops with moderate bite up front over a medium bready malt base. Bitterness lingers at the back sides of the tongue, fading slowly. High ABV seems very well covered.

m: Medium with fine body and much carbonation tingle.

o: A very drinkable if not particularly flavorful DIPA. Easy to be fooled into thinking the ABV is lower. Flavor improves somewhat as it warms.

Bomber to a snifter, two months old

Pours a hazy golden orange, a finger and a half of head. Moderate carbonation, pretty good lacing. 4/5

Smell is all malt. The bottles really not that old, how strong could the hops have been in the first place? Heavy caramel and biscuit. A LITTLE bit of citrus, and alcohol. 3/5

Taste follows. All malt, no hop.

Overall, every time I buy clownshoes I'd swear the bottle has been sitting on a car dash in Arizona during the summer for a couple days. Last bottle of theirs I'm getting for a long time. The shelf life on all these are pathetic

22oz Bomber.Got off work and I decided to try this bad boy so I fired up a little Aerosmith and poured it into a 20 firestone glass.Nice golden color with a nice finger head.Good ipa with 9.0 abv.Will get the job done but it is not in the upper level of ipa`s.90 minute from Dogfish head and Ruination from Stone are much better but this is not a knock on this beer,it`s still quite solid.Nice hoppy beer.Give it a try if your into IPA`s.The Motley Drunkard out.
