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).

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
A hazed amber IPA with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, biscuit malt over fragrant resinous hops, grassy and smooth, caramel. In mouth, nice grassy malt with floral British hops, nice and smooth, not over the top. On tap at Summer Winter Marriott Burlington MA, for 6.50$, August 3 2012.

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.

HonusWagner (1422) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2012
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.

rocbyter (1903) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Moderate fresh citrus hop aroma. Clear orange color with a large white head. Moderate bitter beginning that fades in the finish. Light palate.

Bouteille 22 oz. Achetée au IGA de Potsdam, NY. Couleur ambrée, mousse crémeuse blanche. Arôme d’agrumes houblonneux, citrus, malt. En bouche, douce, malt et houblons. Pas très amère, une IPA accessible mais très bonne.

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

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2012
22oz bottle: pours a clear bright golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a sweet light caramel malty and fresh hoppy nose. Starts with decent fullness and lots of sweet pale malts with some resiny hop notes and bitter balance before a slightly drier bittersweet finish. Could be a little crisper, with less sweetness, but still a decent IPA.

brokensail (11077) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
The pour is orange in color with a white head. Smells like candied oranges, sugar, and caramel. Not much else going on here. Super sweet flavor. Some tangerine, candied oranges, floral hops and a mild pine. Tons of sugar, caramel, and bread. This is just not good.
