COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a BIG beer. We basically took the Hoppy Feet recipe and multiplied everything by 1.5. This created a wonderfully unique beer that has a deeper malt balance, bolder hop profile, and an extremely fresh aroma. When comparing to regular Hoppy Feet you will notice much sweeter malt notes mixed in with a more pronounced chocolate and dark fruit flavor. The malt flavors are balanced off with strong pine and citrus notes from the addition of A LOT of hops. This beer was actually dry-hopped not once but TWICE with each of the hop varieties (Columbus, Cascade, and Amarillo).

AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine in Stuart. Pours very dark black with a coffee au lait head. Aroma has roasted malts, rum raisin and some grapefruit. Taste brings sweet dark fruits, some citrus, some very bitter bakers chocolate with some expresso back. A really nice blend. Finishes with some length and very bitter with a hint of sweetness. Very interesting and lovely!

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Bomber. Looks like a stout, is black with a coffee-colored head. The aroma is hard to pick up, oddly. What I do get comes by in the way of dates and dark roast. The flavors are fabulous and long! It’s more dry than it is bitter, with lingering espresso. Munching on coffee beans. The hop brightness has faded, it’s not that fresh by the time it made it down to our Total Wine. But the lack of bright hops doesn’t detract from the overall flavor profile. Alcohol is well-hidden. Dangerously drinkable and good for a late night pick me up!

Bomber from Liz. Pours very dark brown with a creamy/foamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate over pine. Med+ body. Flavor is chocolate, dark malt and a heck of a lot of mixed citrus/pine. Wowser. It is a bit malty, but it’s very bitter and flavorful. Mild hop burn. Very nice.

Pours black with ruby edges and a small tan head. Smells strongly of chocolate with hints pine and grapefruit. Taste is extreme following the nose, lots of chocolate and grapefruit and pine. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Clown Shoes Hoppy Feet 1.5 Double Black IPA finishes with some lingering bitter dryness.
