3.56/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a lightly hazy orange-amber color. The orange-tinted head is initially quite tall, with a dense, frothy texture. Retention is good, and sticky lacing is left all over the top of the glass as the head recedes.
S: Some maltiness in the nose, with moderate caramel notes. Maybe even a little brown sugar. Some herbal and citric hop aromas, with some lightly piney undertones. Not particularly vibrantly hoppy in the nose, which is a little odd considering the 133 IBUs. Bittering hops don't contribute much to aroma, but they must have used a fair amount, right? Some fruity esters linger.
T: Fairly malty up front, with caramel prominent and lesser notes of bread crust and brown sugar. Very aggressive hop bitterness arrives early and stays late. Hop flavors are piney, herbal, and citric, with particularly pithy grapefruit/pomelo character. This is not an especially clean fermentation; there is some yeasty character, primarily by way of fruity esters.
M: Fairly creamy up front. Carbonation is on the light side of average. Bracing hop bitterness adds considerable and lasting dryness to the middle and finish of this beer.
O: This is a big, hoppy, jagged IPA from Sly Fox. It's not a bad beer, but it's full-frontal and a little less graceful and pleasant than some of my favorites.
