A 355ml can with a BB of Oct 2013. Acquired recently from Trembling Madness in York. The label mentions that it contains British, German and Pacific NW hop varieties.

Poured into a Delirium chalice. A bright coppery-amber hue with good carbonation. Yields a small head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a few minutes before settling as a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing. Aroma of resinous pine, weed, caramel malt, stewed hops, earthy yeast and a warming whiff of booze. Not as aromatic as I expected.

It tastes intensely hoppy with a powerful bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, weed, herbs, caramel malt, stewed hops and mild earthy yeast. Highly attenuated, with a harsh quality and a whiff of booze in the background. A strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and very dry, with a mild spiciness. Pleasant carbonation and good body. Highly astringent - strips the palate. Aftertaste of overwhelming pine resin, weed and stewed herbs.

A fairly tasty beer but rather one-dimensional. Tons of bitter pine-laden hop notes and little else. Looks OK, but the aroma/flavour are dominated by pine resin and a somewhat acrid herbal character. The caramel malt doesn't stand up to the hops, resulting in an unbalanced brew. Body is alright. Decent enough but not the best example of an American IPA that I've tried. Worth sampling but no need to go out of your way to find it.

355ml Can (£3.20 from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow):
Reddish copper & a thumb sized, creamy white head that holds well.

Malty with strong caramel and sweetness. There is some light pine as well as some citrus notes and a few hops thrown too.

Bitter & pine laced initial taste with some citrus and a lot of bitterness. There is a bit of caramel and sweetness from the nose as well but it doesn't seem as strong here. I also got a hint of tropical fruits and a bit of spice.

Medium & bitter in taste, even for the style. There is a light tang and the finish is a very bitter and dry one. Smooth and strong with a hint of grain plus a nice sweetness in the finish.

Good overall although the bitterness is very strong but the taste is a pleasant one and it smells great. Another solid Sly Fox beer.

12 oz can, with 6/15/13 date stamped on, assume a best by date.

appears dark copper in color, fairly clear. about 1/2" of off-white colored head. good head retention. smell is a mix of biscuity malt and fairly strong earthy hops. the taste is fairly similar flavors. starts sweet but finishes a tad bitter, but hops not that strong. medium body and higher carbonation. overall - fairly easy drinking IPA, good for summer.
