COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís a job. And a hazardous one at that. Benefits, you ask? I hardly think so. But the show must go on. So, itís with bravado that the Rodeo Clown takes his place in the arena lights. Whether or not heís insane is not important right now. Itís with grit and intensity that the Clown steps in the path of almost certain destruction. Our Double IPA is much the same. At 9.5% ABV, Rodeo Clown Double IPA coats the tongue in bitterness and packs a punch that will knock a bull on its ass . Intense and maybe a little insane drink carefully, but drink often. Ladies and Gentlemen, let the show begin.

johnnnniee (2306) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Received in a trade with MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a fairly murky copper color with a decent sized milky white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. The aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and brown sugar mostly with hints of pine resin and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with sugary caramel malts and a solid shot of ethanol. Light bitter citrusy resinous hop flavor with a firm hop bitterness. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Decent enough IPA, but a bit sweet and a little too alcohol harsh for my tastes.

travita (3954) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Can. The look is amber reddish in color, beige decent head, and slightly hazy. The smell is peachy, caramel, slight cheese, sweet, fruits, pine, candy, and alcohol. Smell is better with a little warmer temp on the beer. The taste is sweet, hops, candy, fruits, alcohol and ok bitterness. Slightly chewy and thick.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Hand Bottled:   Amber in color,a bit fiery, moderate sudsy sandy colored head, spotty lacing.   Soft hop and citrus nose.   Leaning towards more of a citrus variety.   A bit resiny, very faint alcohol.   On the tongue the alcohol (9.5%) is not to be seen.   Lots of citrus, resin, and pithy qualities.   Mild sweetness, very smooth with a nice moderate hop bite.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Mild alcohol on the finish, moreso warming.   Very simple and well done, and well balanced with a good malt background.   Thankfully not just a hop bomb.   Thanks for the opportunity to try this one Bill!

Sammer (1036) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2013
Can. This one drinks like a heavyweight IPA, with big bold flavors of hops and booze. Solid.

12oz can from Central Market in Houston. Murky gold pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts and pine. Tastes are caramel, dank, tropical fruit, resiny, candy sugar. On the malty side. Creamy medium texture. Nice.

maxwelldeux (3664) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2013
Draught. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little bit floral and implies a tad bit of bitterness, but not much. Taste is much the same, and ends up being quite smooth. Not bad at all...

I had this beer when I used to live in Houston, TX. This I believed was the best that the brewery had at the time. It's too bad that it doesn't come all the way up to Washington state. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wchesser (1165) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Extra from errl...thanks Chris! Deep orange. Very malty nose almost like a barleywine. Bit spicy but not a ton of hops on nose. Pretty malty sweet but a piney bitter finish. Not my favorite but a solid double.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Pours hazy amber with a creamy white head. Very sweet, pine, lemon zest, tons of caramel. Thick mouthfeel. Quite good, glad I tried it.

Pretty clean amber pour with medium cream head. Some lacing. Aroma of caramel malt sweetness and earthy citrusy hops. Thick mouthfeel. Caramel malt. Spicy hop character. Hint of pine. Bitter sweet finish. As good as 120 minute. ---Rated via iPhone
