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.

Itzjerm (1393) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Cloudy but a nice head. Aroma is light tropical taste is sticky thick with a full body and carbonation weirdness. Malty very malty. Not a bad beer in general For a DIPA, there are better choices.

Not really what I expected, nice hop scent, deep color, but the taste wasn't what I wanted. Seemed more malty than hoppy, also had a lingering aftertaste. Poured from a bottle December 2014, maybe it was old? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Obfuscate (92) - Minneapolis, - DEC 3, 2014
Good double IPA, nothing that really separates it from the pack but a good one and worth a try. Pretty good malt backbone, sweet citrus and a mild bitterness for the style.

mansquito (3550) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Winter Beer Fest, Philly: Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus and sugar. Taste is rather on the bitter side. There is a lot of grapefruit. It is also a little bit sweet. I wasn’t all that impressed with this one. Still pretty good though.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
12oz bottle 11/29/14 (Jewel Mix A Six)-40° in Shaker-Pours a murky amberish orange with a small off white head. Aroma of hops. Taste of hops, citrus, and malt. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

markas101 (1898) - 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 (29) - 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 (679) - 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 (130) - 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 (735) - 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.
