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.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2006
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 doesn’t 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 I’ve 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 wasn’t 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 it’s 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 doesn’t pay off though, this is the most decent experience I’ve had with any of their beers.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2006
22 oz bottle. Pours a bright clear orange colored body under a large fluffy 2 finger off-white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is well balanced between sweet caramel malts and grapefruity hops. Nice fruity citric hops with moderate bitterness level. The flavor has a nice malt background as well. Long lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft fine carbonation yielding a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, an average to slightly above average IPA, very sessionable and well balanced.

Orange amber ale with a thin white head. Light herbal hops and caramel nuts aroma. Good orangey Ipa with biscuitty malt, fragrant hops, pinhey notes, oily mouthfeel and good citrus notes in finale. A good IPA.Post-Mondial 2006 tasting at Goldorak.

Thanks to Rater DocLock for the SlyFox! –I can tell that this is a very up & coming little brewery!

Pours a deep copper body and a tall cap of frosty caramel head… lace’s like a silk-worm! A proud explosion of hops resonates from the glass… NICE! Just what I have been craving; a burly IPA! A lot of sticky caramel in the flavor… maple syrup, whole-grain bread, pine chips, a natural tobacco spiciness with a buttery yet bitter / dry finishing palate.
