On tap at Mad Fox. Very aromatic. Copper color, no head though and a nice level of malts. Very nice and just the tiniest hint of orange cream icecream

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler shared with Jason - grazie amigo. Poured a murky tangerine with a modest head. Nose of lemon peel and raspberries, with a ton of grapefruit. Taste is primarily a hoppy blast of citrus and pink grapefruit, with tell-tale grassy bitterness on the back end. Finishes a bit sweet with an Orange Julius stickiness (per the label - I guess) Nice carbonation. A solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 6/10/11
Aroma: The nose more fruity then taste, some citrus and tropical fruits
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish color with a decent sized off-white head
Flavor: The taste is rather hoppy, not a ton of balance, but some light maltiness
Palate: This one has a medium (plus) body with a finish that is rather dry
There is not a ton of balance to this one, but it was a rather solid IPA. This was some solid stuff. I enjoyed this one, a good offering from Mad Fox.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours hazy orange with a decent off-white head. The nose is all citrus and tropical fruit. Lots of pineapple, orange, and tangerine. Promising. Thankfully the flavor doesnít disappoint. A little caramel mixes in with all that fruit to create a rather delightful brew. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a long, tropical and bitter finish. The best brew Iíve had from them by far.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 11.13.2010. A bit disappointed that I missed the cask version, but NotF was worth it. Served in a pint glass.
Pours a very hazy dark amber-honey color. Definitely unfiltered. There is a single finger of off-white head with minimal lacing to begin. Served a bit cold and as I let it warm and gave it a few good swirls, the head came back up and started leaving some really nice lacing.
The nose is orange rind with some slight earthy hips. A bit of bitter orange peel and some light orange marmalade. There is a bit of slightly-sweet pink grapefruit. Notes of orange creamsicle as well. The taste is really nice and orange from the start with a dry finish. Smooth midpalate on medium body. Itís slightly creamy and exhibits some slight earthy notes.
As it warms even more there is a good dosing of light pine needle. This is really tasty and hop-forward. Iíd say that this is the best Iíve seen from Bill and the folks at Mad Fox so far. Hope these big hop bombs keep on coming.
Serving type: on-tap
