3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Drafting Room. Cask conditioned. Served at cellar temperature. Poured a medium hazy amber color with a smaller off white head. Compared to the other Sly Fox IPAs I had this night, this was more subtle smelling and tasting (hoppy, citris and some malts). Well rounded and very good.

EKG gives a nice fruity background with some hints of herbs and some earthiness but well rounded. SOmewhat flowery as well. Somewhat harsh and muddled bitterness in the end.

A draft offering from Sly Fox part of the 9 IPA's in nine months to celebrate the brewery's 9th annivesary. This one has the flavor of a classic English IPA. East Kent hops are not overwhelming but make this a smooth IPA.

Tap at the SF IPA event. Deep orange, clear, tan head. Hoppy aroma with a slight malt note coming through. Lots of hops, but a stalish malt flavor. Hops linger. I thought fuggels to be better. Maybe some diacetyl in this one.

Draft at the brewery for the IPA Project. Good clean beer. Nothing wrong with it. This just didn’t do anything for me. No bite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Light amber in color...doesn’t really look too much like an IPA. Caramelly, malty aroma. Well-balanced, and the malts come out nicely in the flavor. Flavor is hoppy and strong notes of caramel or butterscotch come out. Overall, a good IPA.
