My second experience with Clown Shoes and thus far I am definitely a fan. I almost opted out of this one based upon some of the other reviews but I'm so glad I picked it up anyhow. This ale pours a deep copper color with a slight white head that quickly gives way to a gentle off white lacing. The nose is all hops. Pine and grapefruit and a little grass intermingle beautifully to create a fresh bitter wonderland. The taste further accentuates the aroma, bringing all the beauty of the fresh hop flavors with a roasted malty sweet flavor that balances the beer perfectly. I almost think they could have brewed to a bit higher of an abv and still pulled off a very successful beer. This is an ipa I will return to again and often. Pick up a bottle and you wont regret it. P.s. extra kudos for the bitching 80s cargo van side style graphics.
