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

jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Can,11/24/2012, Pours clear amber, medium frothy head with decent retention, watery lacing. Aroma is spicy caramel malts with nice citrus, tropical hop notes- pineapple, melon, orange- pine resin secondary. Taste is sweet caramel malts, blending nicely with big piney, tongue tingling hops, light citrus. Medium palate, avoids being too resinous so pretty smooth and drinkable. Not bad at all.

rosenbergh (10905) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2016
12 oz can. Crafted on 07/25/16. (Specs) Austin, TX.
Clear reddish copper color with a mid-size foamy off-white head. Sweet and strong hoppy bitter aroma with dark fruits, frosted something and sugar. Barley Winey. The flavor is really strong deep bitterness, dark fruity hops, sugary sweetness and caramel malt. A bit less sweetness and we would be talking...

Scopey (13010) - 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.
