Appearance:
Deep orange body, very muddy quality. Pillowy head on pour, but fades to nothing in time. No lacing but great legs.

Aroma:
Fairly tame. Light pine and hits of citrus blanket a malty backbone. A pleasant yeast character. Cola. I also get the occasional, odd ball coriander note.

Taste:
Malt forward but plenty of hops to be had from there on out. Rich caramel malts trick your taste buds into letting down their guard before a generous amount of hops have the weak screaming "uncle!" Earthy and spicy, the hop profile is big here. Grapefruit, light pine, and bit of pepper make each sip a slightly different experience. A bit of booze on the tail.

Mouthfeel:
Gobs of carbonation and a medium-bodied. Finish is far from clean and pretty dry, reducing the possibility of this one as a good summer brew.

Overall:
Definitely a solid brew, but not my favorite from Clown Shoes. Well worth grabbing, but don't expect a light or refreshing brew as this is far from it.

A: Hazy orange color. Some lacing lingers around the glass. A little head that quickly fades to leave bubbles around the edge of the glass the whole way down. S: Citrus like smell. I get a slight sour smell almost hidden. T: Slight grapefruit. Not too bitter for an ipa. Get a little of that Belgian yeast taste, enough to let you know it's there, but not overpowering. Tastes like it smells. M: A slight spice feel to it. Little bit of sour near the end that lingers on the tongue. On the dry side. O: Not bad at all. This style is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Worth a sixer for sure, interesting name and label.
