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 (661) - 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.

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.

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...
