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!!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by jmborggren- thanks again, Jeremy! Pours a mostly clear, deep golden color with a big, foamy off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of herbal, citrusy hops, sweet malts, and some bitter soapiness. The flavor isn’t as bitter, with notes of peach, pale and sweet malts, dried herbs, and citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts juicy and finishes dry. I liked this better than the others, apparently.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks solid; malty though. An orangish-brown with ample off-white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells strange; soapy with some malt and hops (in that order). Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Eh.
