Color is brownish-orange. Aroma is pineapple and other tropical fruit. Taste is pineapple and other tropical fruits, citrus hops and a nice malt backbone. The ABV isnít apparent at all. The tropical fruit aroma and taste is really prevalent, quite unique. An excellent DIPA.

Au nez, on sent le cote acide et herbacé du houblon avec une pointe poivrée. En bouche, c'est doux et houblonné a la fois. Le 9% d'alcool est complètement caché par le houblon qui révèle un côté fruité encore encore là caché. La finale est douce, légèrement sucrée et moyennement amère. J'espère pouvoir goûter a nouveau a un produit Clown Shoes.

Space Cake DIPA is a hazy honey amber liquid with a firm head of small white bubbles. Nose is crisp with pine hops. Taste is initially quite crisp and a little sweet, then there is some almost lemon like citrus midtaste followed up by the expected pine bitters on the finish. a very nice evolving taste that just works. Body is lively and a bit satiny. A very nice beer.

Pours a dark amber with a frothy, tan head. Nose is malt and hops with a bit of peatyness and fruit. Hint of strawberry. Taste is well-balanced. Pronounced hop bitterness, especially in the aftertaste, which lingers long. Medium body. Vigorous carbonation. Tasty brew!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another east coast brewery throwing around the term "west coast" in their IPAs when itís not called for. This was a good beer, but since west coast IPAs are considered hop forward, not sure what they mean by "west coast style malt backbone". This beer defines east coast IPA. Strong caramel malt aroma with a little resin and toffee. Pour was a nice dark gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was very malty. Strong caramel flavors balanced by a hotness that was part alcohol and part bitter hops. I prefer IPAs/IIPAs to be hop forward like the west coast does, but this wasnít bad

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy shade of amber. A whiter shade of brown. A sickle cell tequila. Maltier than I like it, but there is still a nice nose -- although I think it faded in the trip to California from Ipswitch. Malty, but OK. I need to try this fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted cereal and caramel for the malt, heavy grapefruit and orange juice for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with date and mango skin in the background. Head is average size, frothy/creamy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy orange/amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a carbonation between soft and lively. Nice malt-hop balnce in this top notch DIPA.

Does this brewery make a bad beer? I donít think so!
From bomber, pours a hazy orange with a big white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is caramel and citrus hops from the Mosaic hops. Taste is citrus and caramel, but not the heavy caramel that some beers have. This is perfectly accomplished: caramel but not too sweet and not too heavy. Not bitter. Not sweet. Just very very nice. Medium slick mouthfeel. a delight to drink. Wow.
