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