COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our boy, Miracle Mike, represents the good we hope to do with the Clown Shoes Minor Miracle Fund. A percentage of the profits from this juicy, sessionable IPA will be used to help real people (and maybe a puppy or two).

Bomber. Pours a deep gold with a large off-white head. Aroma and flavor are some pineapple, some grassy, resinous hops, moderately malty backbone. Not very bitter but lots of good hop flavor. Sticky palate. Nice.

Clown Shoes Miracle has a very thick, fluffy, slightly off-white head, a significantly hazy, somewhat bubbly, orange appearance, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong grapefruit and bread, and the flavor is of fruity, grapefruit hops, sweet bread, caramel, and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and viscuous. Clown Shoes Miracle finishes dry and even crisp to some extent. This really is a session IPA. Overall, this is a most excellent beer, and strongly recommend you giving it a try! RJT

Grapefruit and lots of it in the nose. Also a bit of grain. Palate has bite and juicy hops, but works, don’t end up too dry or overwhelmed. Decent.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Orange-amber, quite still, virtually no visible carbonation. But the sticky head is resilient. The again, this is darker than you might think and light struggles to penetrate. The beer drinks with that sticky mouthfeel you get from really hoppy beers ... I might design a fly trap. Piney, acidic, slightly metallic. The west coast guys wouldn’t rave, but this is a sturdy example of an American/Anglo blend. Enjoyable. (#4783, 9/15/2012)

arone12 (919) - Maryland, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Pours a clear orange color with a foamy off white head. Smells and tastes of hops. Nice dry bitter finish. Label is pretty sick too.

Travlr (13428) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Draft. Cloudy yellow orange color, fluffy white head. Aroma of puneapple, lemon, grass. Taste is slightly sour pineapple, scallions, citruss. An odd combination.

Cybercat (3512) - Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Strong aroma is quite hoppy with an undertone of grapefruit. It pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head. Flavor is typically hoppy, not at all bitter, with malty and citrus hints. Body leaves something to be desired, but not the lively fizz. If not a miraculous IPA, worth at least a try.

r464 (1946) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Copper color with a large and foamy light tan head. Balanced, lightly sweet. Hoppy, but not bitter. For an IPA, very light and drinkable. This would make quite a good session beer.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2012
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...

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
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...
