Fatehunter (2050) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy darker straw colored body. The aroma is lots of mango and papaya with grapefruit in the background. The taste starts with a dry bitterness, mild honey sweetness, then super bitter pine, some tropical fruit to mellow it a bit and finishes on a mild bitter note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Big bitter, but with a variety of flavors.

DraftDodger (839) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 28, 2016
Copenhagen 28/4 2016. 35,5 cl bottle (12 Oz) bottle from Meny. Funny fellow in green clothes with a stick with hops on each end jumping around on the label. Pours slightly hazy copper brown with white head. Settles as paperthin layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma of fermented tropical fruit like Mango and Passionfruit with tart citric notes. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is sweet fermented fruit followed by medium bitterness. Lingering Grapefruity bitterness in aftertaste. Well balanced IPA which almost make you forget the silly aanoying guy in clown shoes jumping around.

BierMeHoos (524) - Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2016
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: Murky copper color, two fingers of beige head. Aroma: peach and tropical fruits, specifically mango and orange with a touch of pineapple underneath, bready yeastiness. Taste: backbone of nice light caramel malts, followed by floral and citrus hops, mainly grapefruit. Palate: Creamy, full bodied with light carbonation. Overall: This is a good, well balanced brew.

Shot (362) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours light copper with a huge cottony white head that slowly dissipates to a half-inch head. Substantial cling. Aromas of grapefruit, floral hops, sweet malt and a bit of mineral or funk. Flavors of grapefruit, a hint of toffee, some apricot, lemon peel, and pine. Loads of resiny floral hops in the finish. Soft carbonation. Rather clean mouthfeel, but the abundance of hops create a sticky coating on the tongue. Citrusy and fruity. Assertively hoppy, even for an IPA.

Bebum (661) - - APR 23, 2016
Light amber, crystal clear, tall and lasting tan head. Medium body, full flavored, velvety and hot mouthfeel, long and tasty finish. Bitter, off-dry, balanced. Very hoppy, resiny, malty. Elegantly balanced, easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mmm! A nice dank IPA. Mosaic hops? Another Clown Shoes Favorite. This should be illegal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Brewtopia. Orange copper with lasting head and lace. Piney spicy aroma with some caramel and orange. Toasted caramel nutty sweetness with peachy sweetness and piney resin bitterness with some overripe fruit. Medium full soft body Very old school IMHO. Not what I’m liking these days.
