Space Cake Double IPA – Clown Shoes Beer

From Ipswich Massachusetts Clown Shoes Beer (contract brewed currently by Mercury Brewing Company) comes their limited release the “Space Cake Double IPA”.  The IPA pours a mildly cloudy copper colour with a creamy white head.  The aroma consists of sweet caramel, malts, tropical fruits and floral hops.  The flavour is of hops bitterness, sweet caramel, lots of malts, tropical fruits, sweet citrus and some alcohol.  The alcohol content comes in at 9% with lots of bitterness.  This double IPA is sweeter than I usually go for but it is very tasty and I would drink more if it was possible!  It’s pretty hard to get in a Province if not Country where it isn’t distributed too.

Commercial Description:  Why are Miracle Mike and his dog, Bionic, being chased by many evil laser beam shooting cupcakes and two giant layer cake mother ships? Because we’re straight lunatic fools? Well, maybe, but with a few brains cells remaining we managed to craft Space Cake double IPA, utilizing citrusy Mosaic hops and an immaculate West Coast style malt backbone. Dude… Chill out. Enjoy some Space Cake.
