Clown Shoes Space Cake
Clown Shoes Space Cake is an American Double/Imperial IPA. I have not been a huge fan of Clown Shoes IPA’s thus far (LOVE their dark beers!), but I will say that I am beginning to be swayed. Recent releases Galactica and Space Cake are on the right track. This DIPA uses citrusy Mosaic hops which is evident on the nose immediately. I am loving all of the citrus and tropical fruit: getting lots of orange and mango, grapefruit and pineapple. There is a plain bitterness that lingers after the finish. Although I like a lot of sweetness in a DIPA this one does go a bit too far. Syrupy sugar malts almost dominate the beer leaving it very unbalanced. Worth a bottle if you like ’em sweet!
