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.

2.54/5  rDev -37%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.25

Pours out a clear light amber with a thick, rocky head. Hops in the nose are citrusy, resinous, herbal, and a touch like green onion. There's a smell reminiscent of wort that's really off putting. Smells sweet like citrus candy. Flavor is SWEET. Pretty solid hop flavors going on. Lots of citrus and pine, with a hint of tropical fruit. Lacking in bitterness to balance the huge sweetness. Aftertaste reminds me of the white part of a green onion boiled into mush. Alcohol gives it a medicinal quality. Mouthfeel is full with a smooth carbonation. Overall, this is kind of a mess. Not very enjoyable.

4.24/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Amber body with dense off-white head. Nice retention and a lot of nice lacing.

S - Very fragrant, big citrus hops and some sweet malt tanginess.

T - Nice citrus hops, somewhat piney. Malts are incredibly earthy and create a very fresh and clean flavor. Alcohol is well masked.

M - Medium/light body with moderate carbonation. Thin, somewhat watery, but extremely drinkable.

O - What a nice surprise this beer is. The goofy marketing from Clown Shoes turns me off and set my expectations much lower. But this is a great IPA; very drinkable. Sometimes thinner bodied IPAs come off like soda, but with finer carbonation, this beer doesn't have that problem. I'll definitely be picking this up again and trying the other Clown Shoes brews.
