    Or they would have to really, really like DR12 - tbh I'd be the one to do it but.....I already have my fair share of DR12 ;)

    If they are brewing a different IIPA it will be like getting two beers for one.
    Slap an American Barleywine tag on Rodeo Clown and send it out.

    Just talked to my Kroger beer guy. Karbach's next limited release is coming with Barnburner Saison in cans. They plan to follow up with next F.U.N. will be Barnburner aged in white wine barrels. Also, they'll be doing BBA Hellfighter again due to popularity, but first bring Hellfighter Porter back.

    Regular Hellfighter has been on tap at plenty of places around town recently. Cottonwood, Guru Burgers, Hay Merchant, Flying Saucer, Gingerman, several Little Woodrows. I don't know if they still are at all those places, but within the last month there has been a resurgence.

    Sounds so much better than the wine barrel aged Krunkin Pumpkin.

    Not to me. The beer was very "Belgian" in character and wine barrel seems much more appropriate to me.

    It didn't read Belgian to me at all. The pumpkin in the regular Krunkin Pumpkin matched well with the sweet malty backbone. With the WBA version, the tart, almost acidic character I think clashed with the pumpkin. It left me longing for a sweeter, brown sugar or vanilla flavor to complement the pumpkin. The BBA version sounds like it might do that.

    If I'm at the right place right time I'd try it, but I really liked the WBA.

    It was sour at first, but as it warmed the green apple skin flavor worked well with the pumpkin and spice.

    It was a big surprise.

    One thing I will suggest is never get a Cask Rodeo Clown. Had one last night and didn't like it at all. Flat, warm, and not a DIPA. Was like a flat American Barlewine that needed to be 10 degrees colder. lol

    Now that sounds terrible. WBA Rodeo Clown on the other hand sounds delicious.

    Ahem. ISO: Bodacious. :rolleyes:

    WBA Rodeo Clown is indeed tasty.

    Sadly all the tap takeovers are done because I got my fill at those. :D

    I would have liked to try the BBA Rodeo Clown. Since it's pretty damn close to a barleywine, I bet bourbon barrels would have done it some good.

    Here is the response email:

    Thanks so much for the kind words. We have changed it up a bit. The biggest change is the addition of Falconer’s Flight and a big increase in our dry hopping rates. Much bigger aroma. Specifically when you pop a can.

    I tried BBA Rodeo Clown on cask @ Hay Merchant's 1st Anniv. Unbelievable. Love that sweet bourbon swig.

    I drink almost mainly APA, IPAs and IIPA. Am I the only one that can drink and enjoy almost any IPA except Hopadillo?? I dont know what it is, but it is very hard for me to drink it.

    Surprised the bottle share is still accepting people. Figured it would have been shut down in an hour or so. The email was sent at 5pm yesterday and said they were capping it at 40 people. Then again, there were only 40 people on the email. But I would assume the link was shared instantly.

    I jumped on it immediately. Last one was a blast and some quality offerings; I will definitely be stepping up my game this time around

    Yes, it is only you. ;) Personally, I prefer the taste of Hopadillo over Rodeo Clown, but neither ranks high on my favorites list for IPAs/IIPAs.

    Rodeo Clown is not what I expect from a DIPA at all, that being said hopadillo isn't bad

    Actually I still have yet to try Rodeo Clown. I want to try it on tap first and everytime i see it, they have something else i want more. One of my fav IPAs right now is 667 from Lone Pint.

    Actually, i think Fox & Hound in Woodlands had it on tap last time I was there. On my way home from work, I plan on stopping by Two Mules Tavern to get a few pints of 667 goodness. I'll add in one more stop.
