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 (3759) - 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!

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.

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 (679) - 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 (9391) - 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 (2932) - 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.

hockeybeerguy (1486) - 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 (1455) - 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.

3/3/14. 22oz bomber from Exit 18. Amber orange pour, super over-carbonated, huge, huge fizzy tan head that fluffs up but fades awa. Floral, earthy hop aroma, black tea. Malty caramel flavor, earthy, floral. Either old, gross, or both. Meh.

Medium dark body with foamy white head. Biscuit and hop aroma, though subtle. Taste is more on the malty side for an IPA. Okay.

Solid ipa, I do enjoy their darker offerings a bit more though. The citrus hops are balanced well with some malt goodness.
