Clown Shoes Supa Hero India Pale Ale
Clown Shoes Supa Hero India Pale Ale from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours an amber color with a lofty and frothy off-white colored head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of tangerine, orange, grapefruit, passion fruit, and pepper. The taste is bitter and dry with lots of citrus flavors including tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit, and orange. An undertone of caramel peeks through before plenty of pepper and lemon hops come out on the finish with some hop oils that leaves some film on the tongue. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. This was solid dry and citrusy IPA with a nice bitterness and hop oils presence. I was quite impressed with this as an IPA and would definitely drink it again.
