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.

Clear dark amber beer. Smooth palate with mild carbonation. Smooth malt, trace of toffee. Rich marmalade hops with lesser red berry fruits, pine and grass. Finishes slightly gum numbing. Not bad.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2013
On tap at Yard House Houston. It pours a hazy, orange-brown body under a thin light beige head leaving curtains. The aroma is very fruity and piney, grapefruit, some resins and peach and a faint meaty touch too. Itís pleasantly carbonated, medium to full bodied, and medium dry. Itís quite bitter, grapefruit, pine cones and some peach hints, as well as citrus peel and some malty notes. Lasting finish almost entirely on the hoppy side. Overall itís a nice beer, tasteful and easy drinkable, but lacking some depth. 131112

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2012
CanÖ Clear ruby ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose offers dank, musky, resiny hops and not a whole lot else. Medium to full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor is full of tropical fruit, but also very bitter grapefruit and other citrus fruit rinds and piths. Finishes grainy, sand-papery and dry.

Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. The beer is a hazy amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, citrus and hops. Medium to full body with flavors of citrusy hops, bready malt and a touch of warming alcohol. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Above average all around.

On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a clear deep ruby amber with a near white white head that dissipates nearly completely.

5000 (6180) - 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!
