This is an interesting hop with a fruity aroma which is not as citrusy as most. It has mellow characteristics with dark cherry or black currant notes, It should make for an interesting beer.

Draft at the Sly Fox IPA Project 2006. Solid IPA. Nice a dry. Very similiar to Casade to me. Had a good bitter finish.

Another excellent IPA from the Sly Fox, deep amber color, thick & lively off-white head, great lacing around the glass, nose full of hops, pine & citrus, full-bodied, very drinkable & smooth, flavors were very well balanced with a great caramel malt profile married with lots of bitter hops, earthy & piney notes in the flavors as well, clean finish with more notes of bitter & dry hops with a touch of citrus & pine, Iím very bummed that I missed out on a couple of the other í06 Project beers, but thatíll happen, again a great IPA

On draft at the Drafting Room - Exton. Pours copper with thin white head. Typical IPA citrus aroma. Nice malty backbone and plenty hoppy with fruity, bitter finish. A very solid IPA.

Draft at Royersford with a great stuffed flounder dish. The pour is extremely dark coppery, going toward brown, with 2-finger off-white head. The aroma is bready caramel malty, with subdued feety hops, plus some citrus and fruit. The flavor is based on caramel malt, with a solid hop element and a lot of fruit, which gained a slight cherry/blueberry hint as it warmed. This one was very unique and very quaffable, and I know Iíll be growlering it often.

On tap at the Phoenixville location. Pours a translucent golden amber with an average off white lacing head that sustained. Aroma was interesting...almost a chloronated orange (not in a bad way) with some cherry, some citrus and light pine. Flavor of caramel, nutty, roasty with a slight bitter bite from the hops. Then some fruit to finish it out.

Draught: Aroma was hoppy, with hints of walnuts, cherry, and cassis. No malt or yeast scent. The head was medium-sized and off-white. It appeared creamy and smooth, looking a bit like a freshly painted wall. Head lasted well. The beer poured an intense orangish amber. Sparkling and clear. Very good lacing. Flavor was hoppy and bitter. Notes of cherry, brown sugar, and cassis. Heavily bitter and mildly sweet. Long, dry, bitter finish. Medium body. Lively carbonation. My 2nd favorite IPA Project beer of the last 3 years. Very nice flavor and bitterness.

Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, sweet red cherries, oak, nuts, and light citrus fruits. Taste of much of the same, a really nice cherriness came through, with some toffee, grapefruit, and some tart fruits in the background. An interesting IPA, unlike any Iíd really had before.
