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.

So far I've been on this beer and boy it's worth it! I know I enjoy this beer a little too much haha. It's a little muggy when you point it to the light but it's not too much. It has a nice head with some lacing. The smell I picked up on a lot of citrus fruit notes: grapefruit and even lychee. The beer is definitely awesome and clown shoes did it once again! The mouth feels full with a little carbonation. The taste is crisp and clean with a very sweet citrus note. I would say something like orange in a way. I like it a lot and this is my new go to beer. It is easy to drink and goes well with food.

Loving all these clown shoe releases! Very good double ipa!
Nice thick head
Mangoey and citrus flavors come through a lot. A little bitter but what do you expect from a double ipa! Would be great with a nice pork chop covered in Mango chutney!

Fantastic beer. Very fruity, but also slightly boozy. Very nice drinkable beer.

Bomber poured into a tulip. Another Mosaic bomb, cloudy orange amber with three fingers of persistent rich and foamy off-white head. Amazing head retention, just sits there like a dollop of thick cream. Huge fresh fruit aromas ... Guava, papaya, mango, tangerine, blueberry, orange, yellow grapefruit, nectarine. These are meld together on the palate to yield a Juicy Fruit gum effect. Is it almost too much of a good thing? Seriously, its sweet. More citrus on the nose and tropical fruit/nectarine on the palate. There is a resinous bitterness that saves the day over the course of multiple sips. Alcohol is prominent, particularly in the piney and herbal yet still somehow fruity finish. Malts are in the background, just a light butterscotch vibe. The candied peachiness cannot be escaped. Thick bodied, which adds to the sweet impression, with moderate carbonation. Is it getting hard to find a DIPA that does not showcase Mosaic lately? Probably should not complain, particularly when such a brew is done well. I do dig that almost rank, dank blueberry flavor. If fruity is your thing, this is your concoction. Its going down dangerously quickly. The cake in the name seems apt.
