COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two Hemispheres IPA brings together Australian Galaxy hops and American Citra "fresh hops" in a beer that has our brewery team very excited and very thirsty. This amber-orange beer aims an intense hop-derived fruit aroma straight at both nostrils with Galaxy providing citrus and passionfruit and Citra bring even more orange/citrus plus pineapple, guava, mango. The 150 pounds of freshly picked, never dried, Citra hops were added after fermentation completed in a "wet-hop" process that brings out the most delicate volatile hop aromas along with fresh herbal notes. The flavor is hop balanced with sharp hop bitterness balancing the hop fruit and juicy British malt character. For all the fruity hop excesses, the finish is dry and complexly herbal, with one sip demanding another. This beer will be available for a very limited time.

Tap at Mad Fox. Pours a low haze straw. Creamy head. Webby lace. Nose is fresh biscuit and papaya. Soft yellow, nectar fruits. Taste is piney and bitter with starfruit, oily, juicy nectarine. Sharply bitter in backend with a very soft, quenching mouthfeel. Very sharply hoppy and grassy. Beautiful passionfruit throughout. Very good. A bit more complete than the Dingo IPA but very similar, both were awesome.

On tap at Mad Fox last night. Served in a snifter. The pour brings a fairly-hazy apricot-orange brew with a thin white head. A bit of lacing eventually forms after a few swirls, though not too much. The nose explodes with loads of tropical and citrus fruit plus a very mild dank character. Mango and citrus come to the front. Really pungent fresh-hop aroma. The flavor isnít quite as strong and some of the fruit character gets a bit jumbled. Still, itís really tasty and the mouthfeel is fantastic. Medium body with a slight chewiness and a nice dry bitterness to go along with the raw hop character. Devastatingly drinkable with a beautiful hop bouquet in the aroma, this may be Mad Foxís best hoppy brew yet.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy deep orange with a thin white head. Aroma of tons of sweaty hops (very sweaty!), some citrus hops too. Flavor of grapefruit, lots of crackery malt, and hop resins. Awesome ipa, super hoppy and I loved the hop profile. 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)
