Kind of an orange color, somewhat hazy, nice slightly orange head settled into a quarter inch cap and left nice lace.

Definitely pungent in both aroma and flavor, piney, hop resin, some grassy and floral notes, with a solid malty backbone.

Body is medium with medium carbonation, with a lingering pine resin and malt note.

Overall it's interesting, quite a malt-bomb of an IPA, but I did enjoy it. I'd be interested in trying more from this brewery.

unimpressed by this offering from clown shoes, didn't realize when I bought it that its not too fresh so that might have something to do with it, bottled on 1/25/13 and today is 7/22/13, so its a good 6 months out, not like its a year and a half old or anything but not within the 2 or 3 month window I really like to enjoy the extra hoppy beers within.

taste: its on the malty side and the hops that are in it are just "bitter" for a lack of a better word, not citrusy or earthy or dank or fresh just bitter.... i'd give this a 5 outta 10 on my scale, very average but would love to try fresh, price wise it was a good deal, 6.99 for a 22 oz bottle and the content is good for that price too, 8% but this is just a "meh" i.p.a.

p.s. also noticed that the top five "high reviews are from mass. where clown shoes is brewed, that's weird....but I'm sure the same would probably be true if I clicked on top reviews for surly, they'd all be from Mn.
