tcane7 (1668) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Draft at Lemon Hill. Pours and orange-amber with medium, lasting white head and mild lace. Nose of grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, caramel. Medium body. Good hop flavor. A solid beer, on of the better Clown Shoes I’ve had.

markas101 (1883) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
33 cl bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Hazy gold-amber colour. Thin head. Nice aroma, nectarine and hops without being too overpowering. Smooth, nice texture, stone fruit/passion fruit then a lingering banana hop finish. Alcohol creeps through at the end.

wazzawazza (20) - Geraldton, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2014
Fruity scented and a nice dark orange colour. The taste follows the nose and kicks off as fruity, but mellows quickly and makes me want more. One for the senses.

John25 (642) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Draft. Dark gold. Sweet dank hops, boozy, grapefruit, medium bitterness. A big double but very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chadski4 (125) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Interesting but not necessarily appealing. Found the grapefruit and maple syrup flavors to clash a bit. Finishes nice and bitter

StevieT (702) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2014
From a bottle. Pours cloudy orange, tiny white head, malty aroma, not as hoppy as I’d expected, dangerously drinkable for such a strong beer.

williamstome (946) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Orange-amber pour, nice off-white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, orange, grass and flowers. Great. Aroma is bubblegum, grass, and alcohol, with light citrusy notes.

ColovianTrader (316) - - NOV 13, 2014
Delicious fruit and caramel aromas. Flavors of sweet caramel, grapefruit, orange, citrus peel and pine finish. Hints of vanilla bean. Moderate hop presence throughout.

DuffMan (6981) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very hazy dull gold. The nose has nice grapefruit hop character, and the palate is quite oily and hop-heavy, but there is a lack of brightness that lessens the overall appeal. Bitterness is a little on the harsh side too. Just ok.

sailracer (412) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. A bit of hop flavor up front, but nothing distinctive. Plenty of malt. The high alcohol content of this was not apparent and it was easy to drink. Pretty good overall.

bkurtz (863) - PERU - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle - Pours a hazy golden with full, frothy head. Aromas of citrus and peach. Juicy fruit taste with nice carbonation. Some bitterness in the finish.Well balanced and well made IPA.
