My thought process went something like this: “Oh hey, this is going down easy. Not real carbonated and the hops are hidden just enough tha…..oh good lord it’s catching up with me. Shit man, it’s getting thicker and I’m going to have to abort. I’m not going to…….WOOOOOOOOOOO I’M GREATEST DRINKER IN THE WORRRRRLLLLD!”
How Much:  6
UH OH, 4-pack alert! I paid $9.99 for four of these at my local liquor store, so that’s about $15 for a sixer. Once again, this is a price point at which I expect a lot. There’s no doubt that this is a tasty beer, but I would certainly feel better about spending $10 for a 6-pack instead of only getting four. Also, if I walk into the liquor store and I see this sitting right next to Odell Mountain Standard Black IPA for the same price, it’s going to lose that battle more often than not.
Like I said, this is a good beer and a style that I really like this time of year. It’s got that nice roasted malt taste with mildly bitter hops sprinkled in with almost no indication of the 7% ABV. If Starbucks made an IPA frappaccino, they could use this as their model. So I guess what I’m saying is yes, you could drink it for breakfast.
Hoppy Feet Black IPA is a year-round offering and Clown Shoes is available in 29 states.
