crazyvin (1943) - 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.

Brentv (354) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2014
From bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a huge fluffy off-white head that lasts and lasts and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. There’s also a good bit of sediment in the glass. Aroma is fruity with citrus and resin. Taste is fruity and citrus, not sweet, but certainly not bitter either. It’s got a nice flavor profile but could use a little more something. Easy to drink. Sessionable.

mkel07 (3394) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2014
650ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from May 2015. Like all Clown Shoes beer this one is well crafted and I am yet to be disappointed by any of their beers.

williamstome (891) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Orange-gold pour, off-white head.Interesting homey aroma of carrots, sweet potatoes, orange, pineapple, and bitter hoppiness. Flavor is also of carrots, light grassy hops. Sort of odd. Not sure if I got a bad bottle.

Scipio (701) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours a golden amber in color with a medium, fizzy looking white head. The aroma contains mostly citrus, with grapefruit, pineapple, and orange, with some milder pine and caramel tones. The taste is very dry and rather bland. The citrus impressions serve more as background. It is replaced with a graininess that is mixed with some pine, with is found throughout. The fruitiness is found more at the end. Aftertaste is a short orange and pineapple. More light in body, with a slick texture, with average carbonation. I’m disappointed in this one.

BeerandBlues2 (9701) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit malt, pear esters, grassy, herbal, and floral hops. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with light malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Ferris (4254) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle - Lots of fresh pine and grapefruit, with a sweet caramel backbone. Cloudy copper with a thin beige head. Tastes just as it smells whit have very light bitterness. Well balanced and leaning towards sweetness, a very easy drinking IPA.

nakedwhendrunk (2139) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a hazy golden body with a one finger white foamy head gently clings and forms valleys, some carbonation is seen rising, some really nice foamy clingy lacing appears. The smell had some hops, malts, but combined and not really showing too much. The taste was balanced through hops and malts, but average. The palate was about a light to medium, sessionable, smooth and slightly crisp, citrusy aftertaste and finish. Overall, I’d have it again fresh if given the opportunity.

ThirstyBird (1567) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2014
Poursa golden color with a slight haze and big fluffy cream colored head. The nose is fruity, spicy hops. I think this is an old bottle... Stale malt, cardboard, spicy, fruit. The body is light with decent carbonation.
