Year of New Beer: Galacticake, Clown Shoes (Boston)

Written By: Dion on 11/09/2020

Like the double IPAs of days gone by...pungent nose of citrus, ripe peaches, and juicy pineapple. Moderately bitter up front, but it doesn't last long as the sweet malt backbone asserts itself in short order. Not quite as much citrus as in the nose, and what's here presents more as candied. Still a nice peach note, along with hints of mango and honey. Light pine as well. Warming alcohol toward the finish. Very enjoyable beer.
