Tried this at the weekend. I was at the Brewdog bar in Shoreditch and brought a bottle of this to take home. Another fine example of those crazy American IPA's. Full bodied with incredible malty sweetness, then a tsunami of hop explosion across the palatte. The sweetness reminded me of the Belgian Tripel Karmeliet. Great beer, would definately drink it again.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on August 13, 2014.
The pour is a somewhat cloudy medium amber color leading up to a large, long-lasting off-white head.
All kinds of bright hoppy aromas on the nose mainly of pine, grapefruit, floral, and resin. These mingle delicately with the toasted Belgian biscuits one expects from a Tripel. For 10% the booze is not to be found.
The taste is about what the aroma predicts it will be with a definite grapefruit citrus character, floral and pine, and a lesser malt sensation that almost tends to outlast the hops on the finish.

22oz bottle poured into tapered glass. Beer pours relatively amber in color for an IPA, with a massive orange creamsicle colored head. Huge, tropical hop aroma is immediately evident. Pineapple, papaya. My sense of smell is not at 100% today but this really is one of the most fantastic smelling beers I've ever cracked (assuming you can abide the lack of citrus / pine cones). Flavor is similarly tropical. I think this might be the fruit punch of IPAs. And as promised, there's a good dose of Belgian yeasty goodness, throwing a well-placed curve ball into the brew. Orange peel and bitter orange soda mixed in there, too. I imagine this to be a really fresh brew. The flavors are strong and definitely unconventional, and I could easily see the flavor being divisive among connoisseurs. I commend Clown Shoes for the novel concept fabulously executed, but still I'll admit the flavor isn't exactly all beer, and I find it a bit tiresome after a while. Which is probably for the best given the well-masked 10.5% ABVs.
