Thanks go to willblake for this one! Brought this one to the Columbus gathering. Bright orange color with the standard white head. The aroma had both a good bit of citrus and malt to it. The flavor was similar, and a nice balance between the hops and sweet malt. Sweet in the fornt with a thin, butter finiish that sticks around rather nicely. Not bad.

Hazy orange color. The smell of fresh/bitter hops flows as you pour it into glass. Nice head with firm body. The taste is spicy with dry hoppy finish.

Thanks Dr. Jay for fresh bottle that whaffed great grapefruit and hops and that initial cup of citrus hop juice. Orange tinge with lots of foam. Very drinkable. Just what was needed for a long hot day lunch. Drying finish and aftertaste.

Bottle. Sweet hoppy aroma, almost smells like a imperial IPA. Pours a decent head that hins a little. Taste is decently balanced between hops and malts. Flavorful with a slight yeasty finish. Smooth. Very drinkable and a welcome companion to the hot weather.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Bottle thanks to nolankowal: Copper color with a white head. Aroma was citrus, some light sweet malts, and an earthy/pine quality as well. Flavor, grapefruit, very hoppy all around. Easily the most bitter beer at a tasting consisting of mostly bitter beers. That kind of thing will always impress me.

Piney hop flavors releaved a very obvious malt base, which turned out to be a little too much in the flavor. It was a little soap-sudsy, though the late malt was rich milk chocolatey that certainly made its own statement. Very bitter when it enters the mouth, which doesnít allow much of the fresh hops to come through. A nice IPA that seems confused whether its an APA, IPA, IIPA, or even American Strong. It needs to assert itself with cleaner hops and a more delicate malt profile to be more succesful, I feel.

Honey colored, cloudy pour. Off white head that laces very well. Aroma has hints of pine, hops. Hops are the dominant taste in this beer. This relies a little too heavily on the hops for flavor...needs a little more malt perhaps. Like everything Iíve had from Sly Fox. This is very good.

Thanks to Kramer17801 for this one. Hops and malt take up the aroma on the one. Cloudy golden brew with nice white head.The hops were present but it for sure wasnít just hops which is what I normally would want in an IPA but still not a bad brew.

Bottle, gigantic, excitable head upon pour. Floar, almost soapy aroma with malt, springflowers, freshness. Hops-alcoholic flavor, plenty of bittnerness, doesn;t procuce many particular impressions or associations. Fairly one dimensional although good quality for a $4 bomber. Super tufty and foamy, almost all head when itís poured. Sly fox still has a long way to go when it comes to consistency and quality control. With their quad I got a completely flat beer, now this one is nearly all foam? Their bottled beer is still a gambe that usually doesnít pay off though, this is the most decent experience Iíve had with any of their beers.
