CLOWN SHOES GALACTICA IPA

Clown Shoes Galactia IPA. So far I’ve enjoyed Clown Shoes beers so I didn’t hesitate picking up a bottle of this one.

It’s an imperial / double IPA which is dry hopped with Galaxy.

Honey colour, opaque with a fine head and sweet malt and pine aroma. Medium body, soft carbonation with a resinous mouthfeel.

Sweet caramel malt flavour, leading into a resinous pine, citrus and mild passionfruit flavour. It’s nicely balanced with neither the malt or hop flavour being over the top. It’s not as heavy or sickly / bittersweet as other American IPAs. The 8% ABV is well hidden and there are no warm alcohol flavours. There is a slightly dry finish which makes it go down easily. It’s similar in flavour to Karl Strauss Tower 10 or Ballast Point Big Eye IPA but less resinous and heavy.

Unlike other beer companies with extravagant labels, this one has some substance behind it.

 

8/10
