Forgettable pale. Dark gold colored. Too much toffee malts, some butteriness, a little citrus. Medium bodied. Not worth seeking out.

can acquired on a puppy pickup to Alabama. Aroma is lighter. Malty. Hazy subtle orange in an amber beer Taste is pretty boring. Not bad really. But just not special. Sort of muddled all around. Like hops are there but not the star. Fruity note is there but not the star. Malt is there but not the star. Palate is super dry which makes this one a bit difficult to dink vs. other average pale ales. Overall not a bad pale not a good pale. It’s still beer so cheers!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper with large off white head. The aroma is bready malt and caramel. Thin mouth, nutty malt, wet biscuit, light fruit, decent.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. I was pleasantly surprised by this, but had very low expectations. Light body with a floral and citrus hop presence. Pretty tasty hop flavors.

Foxbush (1487) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2015
12Oz can in Alabama while fishing at Dream Lake The IPA poured a cloudy light amber with an off white head. There was nice citrus bitterness on the nose. You taste the grapefruit rind and a slightly biscuity malt character that make the ale interesting. It was great ale to have after fishing for large mouth bass all day. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. In the back, hop bitterness takes hold, inducing a lasting dry swallow.

Bottle. Orange-tangerine malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet-sharp orange/grapefruit, malt, and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Nice body and balance. Excellent.
