COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Arctic Fox American Pale Ale is all about the hops. First we add some hops, then more hops, even more hops, and finally extra hops.

Quite a nice looking beer... Nice off white head, although that settles to a thin line quite quickly. Aroma seems a little muddled... I get some lychee, grass, pine, pawpaw...sort of like a fruit salad. But I also get some fusels.... Palate is a little thin, but nice mouthfeel. Bitterness is a little harsh, but not all that bad... Carbonation is nice, and overall, pretty good.

Bottle, 13C. Pours copper with a modest beige head. High bead. Aroma is full of American hops: grapefruit, pine and a little resin. Taste has some light caramel and stone fruit sweetness underneath tasty but short-lived bitterness. Body is a little on the thin side. There’s nothing terribly complicated here and that’s not a bad thing: this is a highly drinkable beer with a good smack of fresh aromatic hops.

Bottle. Clear brownish amber pour with a creamy beige head that lasts a while and leaves a lot of lace. Quite hoppy on the nose with lots of citrus and tropical fruits as well as some caramel. Flavour is pretty similar; orange, apricot, passionfruit, lychee and caramel notes all stand out. Light, slightly creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a long bitter finish. Pretty good Australian APA but slightly unbalanced: could be a little more full-bodied and the fruitiness tends to overshadow everything else. Having said that it’s still a nice brew and very easy to drink.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2010
Pours dark coppery amber with a large, lasting creamy head. Aroma shows masses of lychee, kumquat, pine, passionfruit, resin, orange marmalade, fruity confectionery, pineapple, etc, etc. Sweet clean malt is not forgotten; seems to be a nice load of crystal in there. A fair bit of the fruit transfers through as flavours, along with the sweet clean malt. Finish is quite aggressive (and astringent) with a somewhat harsh bitterness. Carbonation is a little too high, body slightly light. The sharp, harsh finish really drags this beer down, that aroma was a stunner though.

Bottle. Impressive taste. Aroma has grass, pepper, and caramel. Taste has a sweet start, with long-lasting bitterness. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber colour, with a frothy white head.
