Murky brown. Off-white lacing head. All those new American hops make it stink to high heaven. It has a very malty backbone thatís all torn up with ob sessive hopping.

Draft at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Hazy to cloudy golden amber color, thick tan head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of freshly baked brown bread. Taste is yeasty, slightly fruity, spiced and bitter. Nice stuff.

Bottle - Caramel, spice and orange. Clear amber with a rich beige head. Lots of caramel with a mild hop presence that is almost not there. This come across more like an English Barleywine. I still like it, just not what I expected.

I do have to admit that the can reminds me a little of a court jester. This high-alcohol double IPA has a very healthy head. Itís bold in color, reddish orange, and looks dense. There is some matter in suspension, and light carbonation. The nose is a little dirty, with moderate to heavy caramelized malts and a touch of burnt sugar. It almost smells like smoke. Iím not sure if itís supposed to or if thatís the scent of my neighborís grill. Itís mostly thin in flavor, but pretty bitter, soft in the mouth, and mostly lacking in hop flavor. The hop flavor is pronounced, but too simple and doesnít compliment the soft body very well. Given more depth and slightly less bitterness this could be a really classy beer. Everything, including the sweetness, really seems disjoined from every other part. It tastes better than Iíve made it sound, though. A little. Itís still pretty drinkable, and the bitterness subsides quickly, allowing for more cohesiveness. Itís brighter and bolder than a standard IPA, but only ever so slightly as to keep it a somewhat sessionable double IPA. Although a little harsh, you really canít tell that itís so high in alcohol.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck. Well rodeo clown is not really an IPA even though it looks and smells like one. The hoppiness was bitter only. It tastes like a one dimensional barley wine. This is not a bad beer, but it is in the lower quartile of IPAs out there

12oz can from Zinister. Deep amber with a beige head. Aroma of stale hops, a bit dusty, a bit citric, a bit earthy, with a bit of malt. Flavor has some a bit of sweetish malt, caramel, light fruitiness, some citric and slightly earthy and floral hops, a bit stale, and some bitterness. Medium-bodied.

Dark brown/red pour. Thick tan head with great lacing. Way too bitter and boozy for my liking.

Amber color & a bit cloudy. Not much of an aroma. The bitterness is balanced well. Very tasty double IPA that I'd be glad to drink anytime

Pours dark with white head. Very strong bitterness. It grows on you though. This beer is decent but too overwhelming without anything to balance it out.,

On draft. Aroma of apple. Alcohol comes through at the start, gives way to some tart, oily tangerine. OK.
