When every day is a party, daily cake is a necessity! But propelled through the stratosphere, the larger-than-life taste is accented with perfumy citrus hops and backed with burnt sweetness.
Nearly black, its ominous dark color projects an image of frothy coffee and yep- cake batter. Deeply caramelized toffee supports a roasted scent of french-press, dark chocolate, walnut and chicory in its early taste and aroma.
Its creamy middle is full, lush and chocolaty. Bittersweetness is threaded with peps of campfire, toasted citrus fruit, pinecone and pineapple. Creamy malted milk chocolate linger deeply into finish.
Its charred finish is lightly of ash and smoldering wood. But its cocoa-laden finish adds to a drying finish and keeps the taste savory and sultry. Lingering sweetness provides a conduit to keep the coffee and chocolate extending into the next boozy sip.

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.
