CLOWN SHOES HOPPY FEET BLACK INDIA PALE ALE

Clown Shoes Hoppy Feet Black India Pale Ale. “80IBUs of Columbus and Amarillo balance a dark malt backbone”. I love this beer. They claim that this was first brewed as a joke. Maybe they were channelling the Black/Pale oxymoron that Raindogs Brewing have given voice to.

It has a stunning black appearance with a darkish head. After warming a bit from the fridge the aroma is roast malt with some spicy citrus. The full dark malt mouthfeel is chewy and then the resinous fruity spice and bitterness  comes through.

I only ever buy one of these and keep wishing that I had more, but then I would guzzle them rather than savour it. I do like this.

 

9/10
