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 Iíve had.

Ron (3057) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle, twice. 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 tasty.

MrOrla (896) - Odense C, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle at the park. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, slight hops, orange, pine. Taste is hops, pine, orange, sweet, too sweet. Less malts, bread.

Dedollewaitor (14789) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle. Thanks to Mr.Orla. Pours hazy Dark golden with a creamy head. Orange, pine and bready malts. Bitter and hoppy okay but a tad too malty. Smooth and dry.

12 ounce bottle. Bit malty and fruity. Slightly sticky with some resin. Ok overall.

williamherbert (1395) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Carrot-juice orange color. Off-white head with a gob of lace. The smell is fantastic: pine oil, cereal grains, mint leaf. I could make a candle out of this. The taste is pretty standard Imp. IPA stuff: heavy pine, lots of grainy wood. Very good and hides its heavy alcohol well.

Desverger (4231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen - pours orange with a white head. Aroma and taste is tropical fruity, grapefruit, pineapple, citrus peel, some caramel sweetness creeping in, pine needles into a bitter finish. Nice drop.

Yorker (1661) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy amber with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are pine, exotic fruit, and caramel - with a bitter finish.

bootlegnjack (4) - - JUL 31, 2015 does not count
This beer is a cracker but not if you donít like piney IPAís. Itís not a dry IPA its malty and has some balancing but not cloying sweetness from caramel malts, which balances the relatively high bittering. Lots of flavour big piney resiny notes combined with tropical fruits. Solid IPA.

Sammy (9665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
Fresh bottle from DeCicco. Malty and good orange hop aroma, however not so good hop flavour. Past the best date? Because no date or staff warning.

Gerbeer (2397) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with full head. Really nice aromas of toffee, tropical fruit, raw rubber, and toasted malts. Flavors are similar but muffled - maybe old? (No date code.) Light alcohol finish. Note to self - try a known fresh bottle...
