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.

Delirium (663) - Falmouth, Cornwall, - JAN 13, 2013
Draught. Pours cloudy amber-orange, with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt and resiny hops. Flavor is... well, those same things. Its what you expect from a DIPA, but its very nicely done; everything holds together well. With the extra malt backing the hops are slightly less forward than in their Hopadillo IPA, but its still on the hoppy side of the DIPA spectrum. Tasty.

From can to glass. Clear copper with smallish off-white head. Cloying malts from the alcohol. Could have attenuated more of the sugar out.

jgb9348 (6040) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2017
Deep amber and copper in colour with a large, four centimetre tall tan head that lasts quite a while. Aroma of biting grassy and herbal hoppiness with some big sets of alcohol, biscuits, malt, yeast, grain and pungency - this shows a lot and hops arent the strongest thing in there. Medium to Full-bodied; Super pungent and bitter flavours with the grain and alcohol showing through the strongest, but then showing some biscuity and nutty malts with caramel sweetness and a pungent, very bitter hop note as well. Aftertaste shows alcohol, warm sweetness from caramel and toffee and a definite earthy and pungent flavour from the malt, alcohol and hops, in that order. Overall, a decent beer at best, but this is far too pungent, malty, bitter and strong for the style or to make it worthwhile. I sampled this twelve ounce can a few minutes after returning from my first circus (and CLOWN) ever in my life, at Ringling Brothers Circus in Washington on 01-April-2017 with my kids, with this twelve ounce can purchased from Specs in Dallas, Texas on 11-November-2015 for US$3,78 sampled at home in Washington on 01-April-2017.

January 9, 2017 - on tap at Hofbrau. Dark orange pour with nice amount of head that lasted. Aroma and taste that were citrusy hops and malt. Nicely balanced and very drinkable at almost 10%.

Finally a chance to purchase Karbach in west Texas. My first try is Rodeo Clown that I have not tasted before. Good move on my part. It goes into a tall shaker glass and is a great dark amber giving a decent beige head. I detect the hops and some toffee in the scent. The taste is strong but not crazy hops, a mango sweetness and a great fullness in the mouth. It ends with a good push of bitterness. Not in league with Dogfish Head 90 Minute but close enough. And I love the can.
