Typically I don't review IPAs that I know are more than 2-3 months old... but this is a from a shipment that Clown Shoes just sent to it's GA distributor, or knowingly allowed said distro to buy from another. So I guess they're OK with me drinking it like this.

Bottled 6/2/14, reviewed 12/1/14

Appearance: Orange with a thin white head, good lacing.

Aroma: Medium intensity, bordering on malt forward. Sweet fruit hop and caramel malt sweetness.

Flavor: Again, hops have faded and made this a pretty malty beer, the hop character I do get it orange juice.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, sticky.

Overall: I bet this beer is pretty good fresh. Possibly still a bit too big bodied for my tastes... but I'll find out when I get a fresh bottle. Very disappointed in the supply chain break down with this beer.
