Fatehunter's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Fatehunter (2615) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy darker straw colored body. The aroma is lots of mango and papaya with grapefruit in the background. The taste starts with a dry bitterness, mild honey sweetness, then super bitter pine, some tropical fruit to mellow it a bit and finishes on a mild bitter note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Big bitter, but with a variety of flavors.

Braudog (6841) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2017
Can. This pours with a gigantic head atop a highly aerated bronze brew. It settles, but is well laced. The aroma is a huge malt-assault hinting at a chewy monster. Indeed, this drinks with a massive dose of caramel malt, raw sugar as the backbone. The hops are earthen and present but restrained. (#6819, 11/3/2017)

tricksta_p (5166) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2017
Can from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is piney hops with soft tropical fruits, caramel malt, grapefruit, orange, and plenty of pine resin. Flavour is sweetish with a long bitter finish. Body is above medium. Smooth and very drinkable sweetish piney classic style IIPA, tasty.

MetalNHopHead (2191) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 15, 2017
In a time when even the Imperial IPA's are venturing into a brighter and fruitier spectrum, Galactica drinks like an IPA that's gradually going out of vogue. Still, it won't go quietly and Clown Shoes makes a good hoppy beer regardless of the styling. Galactica pours amber with off-white suds. Dank aroma redolent of wet pine needles, woodsy and floral hops, and resin. Pithy flavor of grapefruit peel and bitter pine. Some caramel and toasty malt comes through. Crisp feel - not quite bracing but intense. There's no doubt that Clown Shoes can appease hopheads.

simontomlinson (591) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Off white creamy head stayed well on a ruby red, still still body. Well balanced aroma - smells really smooth. Over ripe fruit, wood & orange. Medium to full bodied, oily, minimal carbonation & cloying. Heavy on the hops with bitter citrus, pith, sweet malt, red berries & a woody finish.

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2017
473 ml can. Enjoyed at Austin, TX. Pours an orange golden colour with a white slightly foamy head. Aroma of orange, dank hops, caramel and resin. Flavour of heavy dank bitterness, orange, strong resin, caramel and some herbal notes. Full bodied. Long lingering bitter finish. Great!

3.7
truebluehes (207) - Tipton, Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2017
Can. Cloudy orange with frothy white head. Subtle hop aroma. Smooth malt with nice hop balance. Nice dry finish. Nothing special, but nothing wrong either. Very solid IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tall boy can from ABV. Pours a clear orange hue with a small white head. A light citrus fruity nose. Big sweet hops, fresh, oranges, resinous, almost IIIPA like sweet hops, light biscuit, bitterness. Solid.
