4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was really great. Potent resin hop aroma with plenty of malt sweetness on the palate to balance things out without being cloying.

Clear copper pour with thin white top. Heavy, pleasant aroma of citrus and resin. Flavors are bold, bitter, and slightly harsh aftertaste. Pretty solid offering, and worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
35,5 cl bottle @ Bishops Arms, Umeå. Aroma is nice with tropical fruits and resiny tones. Flavour is somewhat heavy and sweet with resin, pine needles, fruity hops and some gooseberry bush. Also mellow gluey tones. Fruity and nice. A DIPA? Well, I thought this would be an IPA. Or American strong.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
