Had on tap at Sacco's bowling in Somerville, MA

A: dark copper color; creamy but thin head, nice lacing; decent carb action
S: amazing aroma, bursting in hops; lingers long
T: very strong on all fronts: piney, bitter, malty, very intense; quite boozy; compares very nicely to Flying Dog's Raging Bitch

Yep, give this one a try--it's awesome

3.48/5  rDev -8.4%

Appearance: The beer is a peach color of orange/yellow with a little mix of red. Slightly murky and a solid head. I had an almost perfect pour. The head with an off white and stayed with the whole drink. Lots of sticky lacing, only a slight amount of carbonation. Near perfect.

Smell: Almost exclusively spicy hops and orange zest.

Taste: Similar to the smell but the orange is most present (like an orange peel) and then the hops kick in to the after taste. Better to sip continuously.

Mouthfeel: A heavy IPA, not to be taken lightly. A solid bite but it doesn't linger or bite you back. It reminded me a bit of Leatherlips except it was all on my tongue and not through my entire mouth.

Overall: Above average - it was enjoyable and friendly enough for those who don't normally like an IPA. Not my favorite but I'd get it again.

Serving type: Bottle poured into a glass from the Boston Beer Garden (cool place) reviewing from the 26th of June 2012 before the Beach Boys concert at the Pavilion.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a hazy medium caramel amber. One finger fine off-white head with decent retention and good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, orange, sweet malt and faint coriander. Flavor is sweet malt, pine and citrus hops, orange. Finishes with lingering citrus and hop notes. Belgian spicing is faint and overwhelmed by the IPA character, but the hop and malt combination hold their own. The Belgian elements are subdued, but do give this an interesting off-beat flavor that works well. Medium bodied with some creaminess, mouth feel is enhanced by active carbonation. An interesting take on a Belgian IPA. The labelling didn't bode well for a serious Belgian IPA, but the contents worked out well.

4.05/5  rDev +6.6%

I believe I paid 7 dollars for this from Halftime beverage.com and it was bottled 5/2012 so it's at least 2 months old.

A - Wow for two months old I got a 1/4 inch of head that seems to stick around, great lacing and some fine carbonation bubbles. Color is a slightly hazy dark amber brown.

S - Smell is very mild but I do get some Belgium yeasts (mild and fruity) with some citrus hops and orange peel to boot.

T - Well the first thing that comes to mind is how clean tasting it is. Hops are mildly piney mostly citrus and carry the semi dry fruity yeasts of this beer well into the finish. The orange like taste I smelled actually attributed some bitterness and sweetness giving mid palate a tart aspect. Damn fine brew.

M - Light to medium is so easy to drink.

Overall for what I paid it's well worth it and could see myself trying other clown shoes beers. A very well done Belgium IPA.
