India Pale Ale | 6.5% | USA
This was the first canned release from Clown Shoes - and what a way to do it. Make sure you pour it so you can enjoy the golden body and the spongy white head. Sweet and juicy in on the nose with pear, apricot, citrus, grass, and caramel malt getting you primed for your first swig. The hop/malt balance is nicely struck with plenty of citrus and tropical fruits snuggled up against that caramel malt character. The hop bitterness is assertive without being aggressive and the finish is lingering and dry.
