A - Pours a deep black with a two-finger tan head. Nice amount of sticky lacing.

S - Hop forward - lots of grapefruit, orange, and pine. Roasted malts are also present.

T - Roasted malts right upfront followed by lots of hoppiness. There is a nice balance of sweet malts and bitter hops. Finish has a strong hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very easy drinkng.

O - One of the better Black IPAs I've had. Nice blend of malts and hops. Very enjoyable.

Picked up a bomber at my local beer store.

A: Pours a dark brown, almost back into my Founders snifter. Aggressive pours resulted in 1/2 head that lingers.
S: Interesting, I had expected more of a floral, grapefruit aroma. The malt really hides the hops.
T: Same as with the smell above, where are the hops? Tasty, with a slight alcohol warming at the end, but I'm missing the hops I was expecting.
M: Not bad, not too thin, not too chewy.
O: Another solid beer from Clown Shoes, just a bit let down due to the absence of hop bite I was looking for.
