4/5 rDev -0.5%
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.

2.5/5 rDev -37.8%
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.
