2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber with an inch of white head that lasts well. Aroma of tropical fruit, soap, caramel, vague citrus. The citrus flavours are brighter in the mouth. Sweet with mango, biscuit, caramel. No particular finish, although some pepper emerges. Modest bitterness. A bit of a muddle.

Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a clear orange appearance with a white head. Chewy, goopy sweet malty, a bit spicy, grapefruity hoppy aroma that kind of smells a bit sweet. Citrusy, chewy, toasty, goopy malty, herbal hoppy flavor. Not a big fan of this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear dark orange pour, soapy carbonation and an aroma of stale grapefruit. Flavor is white grapes, light malt, hay and mild bite of hops. If it was priced closer to $8/6 pack, I’d pick it up all the time. Will not be buying another one at their 4-pack price though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a large foamy sudsy off white head that slowly settles to a film and sticky lacing. Aroma has mild bitter hops presence with strong caramel malt all around, somewhat sweet. Taste is light bitterness and bready with mild spice and caramel malt. I get a strange meaty bread like flavor in the finish. Palate is thin to medium with a mild spice and dry finish.

22 oz. bottle shared by jmborggren. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a big fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor had sweet malts, herbal notes, a floral soapy character, some orange citrus juice with mild bitterness. This was a bit strange to me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is really malty, there is a touch of citrus hops in it also. Flavor is also malt forward but not overly, taste some grapefruit and citrus also. I wouldn’t call this a English ipa but it is very malt forward. Actually quite flavorful for being a sessionable ipa. Another great beer from clown shoes!!!
