Clown Shoes Baked Goods Hoppy Pale Ale
OK I admit it. I bought a can of Clown Shoes Baked Goods Hoppy Pale Ale because of the name and artwork on the can. Well, that and the fact that every beer I've tasted from this brewery is solid. The scene on the can is a Clown Shoe-shaped fighter space craft blasting baked space debris.
"OUR MISSION: To Produce Beer Without Pretension While Being Free and a Little Crazy" Canned 06/23/17. 5.5% alcohol.
Citrusy, tangy aroma. Very dry from the start. Orange and grapefruit citrus rind flavors are hoppy and sharp. Bitter and aggressively astringent! With a little warmth, however, some of those sharp edges are rounded off. That is highly recommended. With warmth, a nice juicy, tangy, orange jammy sweetness shines.
Definitely delivered on "Hoppy Pale Ale." Remember... let it warm up a bit.
