Mercury Brewing Company in Ipswich, Massachusetts. This is the beer that caused all the commotion because of its label art. However, the 12 ounce bottle I have only shows a pair of red and white clown shoes. Perhaps only the 22's have the controversial art. Anyway, this was bottled in August, 2011.
Citrus, hoppy orange aroma with some roasted malt and licorice hints. The roasted malts are a much stronger component to the flavor profile than the smell let on. After the initial roasted malt flavors comes a powerful medicinal, minty, hoppy bitterness. A little orange and quite astringent. The flavors are pretty generic, hovering between strange and unpleasant all the way. Definitely bitter along with some burnt malt. The 6% alcohol only shows itself with a dry finish. The aftertaste sticks around, too. Definitely my least favorite Clown Shoes beer so far, by a lot.
