BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Clown Shoes
Massachusetts, United States
clownshoesbeer.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Why are Miracle Mike and his dog, Bionic, being chased by many evil laser beam shooting cupcakes and two giant layer cake mother ships? Because we're straight lunatic fools? Well, maybe, but with a few brains cells remaining we managed to craft Space Cake double IPA, utilizing citrusy Mosaic hops and an immaculate West Coast style malt backbone. Dude... Chill out. Enjoy some Space Cake.

Amber in color. Nose is light on the hops, but full on the hop flavor. I love the follow up on the hop flavor. This is a great ipa. I wish it were sold closer to Kentucky.

Slightly cloudy, deep orange in color. Creamy, tan head with solid retention and lacing. The aroma is ripe fruit, citrus and berries. Caramel malt and yeast notes. The flavor continues to evolve as the beer warms, grapefruit, pine, honey, mango, berries, and some spice. Herbal and resinous, hops bitterness in the aftertaste. A hint of alcohol vapor in the finish, but still very smooth. Very enjoyable, and quite well balanced. A very good beer overall.
