Hoppy Feet has been lovingly crafted by combining premium malt with lots of Amarillo and Columbus hops.
Grapefruit and Pine are balanced on the nose and on the palate by a nutty, dark chocolate, roasted backbone.

A 12 fl oz bottle with a bottled on date of 2nd March 2015 and poured into an oversized wine glass. It poured a near opaque black with a one finger caramel coloured head that dissipated slowly leaving spotty lacing. Aromas begin with caramel malts and toffee followed by notes of pine, grass and also some dark chocolate. Taste is caramel, black coffee and bittersweet chocolate followed by grassy and piney hops. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice hoppy Black IPA that I would revisit again.

77ships (5919) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2015
341 ml. bottle. Purchased @ Willems & Zoon. Bottled on 04/08/2015 (USA notation). Pours very dark brown, small mocha. Nose is quite hoppy still, blue cheesy & pine, malt background is rather big, powdery roasted malts & cacao, instant chocolate milk sweetness. Taste is floral & bit herbal bitter with chocolate milk sweetness, cheap cacao puffs, powdery cacao, grass, a touch empty, chicory coffee, rather powdery herbal. A touch empty & powdery. Not heavily astonishing but quite solid all the same. Age might play some role here. Solid but not stellar which is how Clown Shoes has come across so far for me. I wonder what their price point is in the USA?
