Good beer, reminiscent of a strong harpoon. Malty cutting through throng hop. Good buzz.

Solid big ipa. Nothing jumps out but is easy to drink without a harsh finish. Enough malt to carry the big hop bill. Notes of citrus, evergreen dominant this brew. Low carbonation. Solid brew.

Appearance: Lively amber body with a light copper tint under a 2" finely bubbled bone white lacy foam cap. Smell: Big grassy spicy hop nose, fresh fragrant flowery meadow – early spring to mid-June – some fruit as well along with tons of honey.Taste: Clean malt flavors laced wuith light, large pitted fruits and a variety of citrus with a big background citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel: Very creamy texture with a medium full body and medium levels of carbonation.

Very well balanced - the alcohol stays in the background. Slightly sweet, thus the hops take an evident but back seat. This is not a one and done for me. I tried this because their Hoppy Feet 1.5 is outstanding. Although this Double IPA is not outstanding, it is very good.

Very good IPA, was interested in what else clown shoes had to offer after trying this, but none live up to this
