Soft red-orange amber with a deeper hue. I wish I could've collected more head, but it looks to-style.

Soft tropical fruitiness with a fuzzy peach skin note that I like. Clementine, nectarine, and ruby red grapefruit. Juicy with some tannic acidity. Very fruity with hops and yeast. Nice and crisp with a light pomme note. Great IPA note, no matter the particular sub-style.

Very tangy with familiar American hopping (Cascade?). Tropical notes of guava and nectarine. Maybe, starfruit. All with a tangy tangerine note. Musty Belgian yeast strain is contained by bitter hoppiness and floral textures. Tangy middle. Affirmed bitter outro.

Slightly grainy texture to the body. Carbonation is pretty big. Not a winner in this department.

Very good Belgian IPA that I could easily enjoy again and again.

From my tasting notes: The beer poured an opaque orange that persisted throughout my tasting. The aroma had the signature Belgian yeasts with a bit of hop which is true to the style. The taste started with the sweet Belgian flavors that gave way to the bitter hops on the back end with a nice creamy mouthfeel. It was a great beer that was true to the style and was a great introduction to Clown Shoes. I will definitely be trying more of their beers in the future.

Pours a three finger cream head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Hazy amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Pine hops and caramel nose, flavor is a balance of pine hops and caramel, some bitterness at finish. $2.69 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.
