Josh the Revelator by Clown Shoes brewing is a 10.2% Double India Pale Ale Dry hopped with Mosaic, Galaxy and Ella hops.

Label:
We feel this label, which depicts Josh Baggett shredding a bridge building guitar in space as a he pedals a pin training-wheeled bicycle while baby unicorns are born in his wake, fairly represents Josh’s rigourous path promoting craft beer to Texas. Josh, we love you man! Dry hopped with Mosaic, Galaxy and Ella hops.

==Introduction==

Exclusive to Texas, I was able to bring this brew to the website thanks to my friend and fellow reviewer Aaron Mendiola of BeerMetalDude.com. Clown Shoes has been very good to our states providing certain exclusive beers to certain markets and since we are able find these, the opportunity to send each other the beers helps so that this way you can decide if you will do the search for the beer yourself. This beer was in tribute to one of their reps, Josh Baggett who lives and sells Clown Shoes in Texas. Some good stuff and definitely something I would like to try from Clown Shoes. Cheers!

Aftertaste:
Finishes with a candied orange notes, tropical and stone fruit hints, earthy, piney and grapefruit hops. No alcohol in the despite the ABV, Golden Amber honey full body, silky, crisp, refreshing and rich mouthfeel with a moderate drinkability.

Overall:
A very good DIPA showcasing many of the flavors that I enjoy from Double IPAs like tropical fruits and citrucy hops. It is a limited release IPA but in case you don’t get a chance to try it, there are many other nice IPAs. It was difficult for me to differentiate it from other IPAs I have tried. I guess the strongest notes of like strawberry were some flavors that were outstanding. I recommend this one for sure if you can get it but there are other great IPAs out there.

Anime Corner:
Mioda Ibuki from Super Danganropa 2 was used in this pairing to pair with the colors of the label representing Josh as he uses his guitar and other musical instruments to make some awesome music flow like the flavor of this IPA to the taste buds as music would for the ears. Some deep IPA stuff.
