I am not one who say that every beer must be "balanced". This one has a lot of pine and citrus, and just a wee bit of malt character. So, yeah, pretty unbalanced. I still kinda liked it...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from Binny’s Plainfield. Pours a hazed copper colored body with an inch thick, dense and foamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweet oranges and caramels with a touch of bready toast. Some florals and a light dull pine. Flavor is similar. Bready caramels with sweet oranges, dull pines, and florals. Touches of toast towards the end as this finishes bitter with dull pines and citruses before this dries and leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty lifeless IPA that didn’t taste very fresh. Eh...

The aroma is citrus and pine with malt and popcorn. The appearance is hazy amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall not fantastic

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber pours deep gold body with a faint haze and it supports a fluffy tan head. The mild aroma offers up sweet malts and thin snippets of lemony to grapefruit like citrus notes. The taste begins with a pretty good dash of lemon mixed with grapefruit and getting firmly bitter toward midway. As this heads to the finish some sweet malts and earthy green tea join in the fun. I’m really liking this style IPA. It is a little earthy tea like (Jasmine tea maybe) and it is working great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like a mixed bag of pellet hops, with no real discernable flavors like citrus or pine to remark on. Taste is more of the same, a totally unremarkable but easy to drink pale ale that doesn’t really merit the IPA tag. I usually like Clown Shoes quite a bit but this is just forgettable.

I don’t remember a single thing about this one -- it was sampled late in the day at the 2012 Lansdale Beer Fest.
