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).

ben4321 (3560) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Total Wine-McLean, 1/30/13

Aroma: The nose has some sweet grapefruit, orange, some herbal notes, and a bit of tea
Appearance: Pours a hazed dark orange color with a thick frothy of white head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, it has bready and herbal flavors, and a medium dry bitterness
Palate: The body medium, it has a fairly creamy feel, a bit of stickiness, and a mid-dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid IPA, it is not the best in the style, but it is more than adequate. I would certainly drink this one again. There’s some pretty good stuff going on here, and plus, it is (partially) for a good cause!

keepersj12 (2561) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2013
A nice English style IPA with a lot of malt in the aroma and flavor. The hops come in at the back end. Well balanced and smooth.

Tap at Pig and Fiddle. Orange pour with a small soapy white head. Citrus hop forward - citrus rinds. Very juicy. Tasty brew.

crazyvin (1859) - New York, USA - JAN 5, 2013
A nice clear orange amber body with a white head that had nice retention and great lacing. Aroma had a nice mix of resin hops and floral hops. Initial flavor had some nice caramel malts upfront and a decent blend of some resin hops, but mostly floral hops. A slight citrus flavor in the finish. Nice and dry in the finish. A balanced IPA.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light tropical fruits, melon rind, yeast, lemon. Very fruity, almost reminiscent of a Belgian IPA. Flavor of sweet fruits, grassy hops, and bitter hop resin. Flavor is a little weaker than the aroma but pretty similar. Tasty IPA, even if it might be a little old. 8/4/7/4/14 (3.7/5)

Clear amber color with fleeting head. Nice floral, spicy hop, honey biscuit aromas. medium body with average co2. Spicy, earthy hop flavors with a lightly sweet pale malt base--good.

rumproasts (2586) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2012
bottle. light amber with small head. hoppy IPA, but somewhat lacking in flavor. slight grassiness, but just nothing to complement the hop bitterness.

Strykzone (4477) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Mid brown and hazy. A small head. Uh, infected. Bandaid aroma and flavor. Toobad. Quality control alert!

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Perfect appearance. Hazy ,cloudy, coppery yellow. With a sticky, dense, lacy, frothy, white head. The aroma is quite nice with citrus, floral hop notes and earth. The taste is like a British IPA not a pop-culture American one, so mega points there. Its malty and bland with a bitter finish that sits light on the tongue. It’s not overly bitter. It’s a nice "real" ale with a hoppy character acting in the traditional preservative sense. Oh, and did I mention sessionable? Not-obnoxious at 5.5%. The work of a "Miracle" brewmaster’s hands in today’s age of IBU rampant American "AIPAs".
