Hugely hoppy heady nose. Like sticking your nose into a fresh bag of hops. The mouth is very heady, strong, full bodied, like chewy on a hop cone, but decent enough baclbone to balance things out. Über hoppy and lovely.

Still love me some Galaxy hops and Clown Shoes finally comes through in a big way for me. Great flavor consistency and pour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Bottled 9/29/14. Pours a thick well retained, ivory head, with heavy lacing, over a hazy amber (SRM 10) body....nose is tropical fruits, with peach, passion fruit, hints of pine, base cereal malts, balance to the hops......taste is slightly sweet, with light floral honey motes, tropical fruits with citrus, passion fruit, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light creaminess. This is a nicely balanced, but slightly hop dominated IPA. The Galaxy adds a different set of aromas and flavors from the more typically hopped IPA with much lower bitterness. BJCP 9/3/14/4/7

Ok beer not hoppy enough. Doesn't taste like a double IPA. Typical of clown shoes. Disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Butlers, Uddevalla. Clear deep orange, big fluffy white head with yellow nuances, lots of sticky lacings, nice. Aroma is juicy fruity with a bitter side to it, lots of resin, oranges, slight honey. Taste starts quite big malty fruity, with resins, citrus, slight sweet touch before a real bitterness kicks in, lastung until the end which also finishes dry with zest. Medium body, medium carbo, sticky texture. Solid, I’d like to try this fresh on tap.

Old rating. Pretty strong IPA. Darker orange. Big citrus punch. Solid caramel malt body that was balanced well with the fruity sweetness and bitterness. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle sample @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 21 2015) Pours clear deep amber with a small white head lingering with lace. Aroma mostly of orange zest, grassy, a little tropical hop resin, sweet caramel malt. Flavour has a lot of caramel and honey sweetness, orange, a bit of resin, bitterness building to moderate levels in the finish, citrus pith and grass, some grain. A little sticky in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, average carb. Didn’t feel that fresh, too malty and sweet, ended up being one note. OK, probably a bit better fresh.

A citrus aroma comes from the glass. Taste: citrus fruity flavor, hoppy malty flavor on the back end. Simply wonderful.
