It’s a job. And a hazardous one at that. Benefits, you ask? I hardly think so. But the show must go on. So, it’s with bravado that the Rodeo Clown takes his place in the arena lights. Whether or not he’s insane is not important right now. It’s 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.

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.,

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Keg at Karbach. It pours clear deep brown with a decent light tan head. The aroma is old-school malt double IPA action, bitter - sweet, wood, pine, toffee, resin and some dried fruits. The taste is rich, bitter - sweet, sticky, pine, resinous, toffee, dried fruits, fruit cake, some alcohol warmth and toasty brown sugars with a slick finish. Medium+ body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Almost like a hoppy American-Style (session) barley wine. Pretty tasty, if a bit old - school.

Dark red pour from draft at their brewpub. White head. Very dank and hoppy fruity. Not bad. Floral. Tropical

As far as imperial IPAs go this was pretty disappointing to me. The flavor was too caramelly sweet and the bitterness didn’t balance well with the caramel.

Cavie (4305) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Tap at the brewery. Clear light amber color. White head. Hoppy aroma. Heavy caramel malt backbone as well. Hoppy flavor, resiny, dry bitter finish. Malt is certainly a part of this as well. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quick3Beers (942) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Pours a very dark amber, more of a brown really. Aroma is malt-focused, sweet syrup and caramel. Nice hop profile, sort of a generic bitterness too. Good beer.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Dark copper. Thin head. Malty, syrupy-minty, quite sweet overall. The hops are minty and mandarin. But this comes across as a very strong, sweet example, getting into "Triple IPA" territory here.

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
Jaune pale avec presque pas de mousse. L’arôme des à plein d’agrumes. En bouche c’est amer, un peu sucré, et plein d’agrumes. Bien équilibré et assez facile à boire pour le style!
