Picked up a can over at the Whole Foods in Springfield.

Served in a Boulevard tulip.

A: Glistening gold, with a substantial, whipped cream-esque head on top.

S: Not ridiculously potent, but I will say that this one is more on the fresh citrus side as opposed to a pine one.

T: Much more hop forward on the flavor though….. almost to the fresh hop harvest side even. Still, substantial grapefruit and orange juice component with a slight bit of booze burn.

M: Picture perfect on the palate and slows you down just enough so you can appreciate and savor it. Not too syrupy-sweet, and lots of lacing left on the glass.

O: This is only my second Sly Fox brew and it was certainly an enjoyable one.

Serving type: can

Served on tap in a snifter

Appearance – The beer is served a clear amber color with a one finger head composed of a billowy white foam. The head has a decent retention, fading over time to leave a moderate level of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite fruity with lots of tropical fruits of tangerine, mango, and some papaya. Along with these smells come some nice grapefruit hop smells. A rather moderately strong pine aroma brings with it a resinous and somewhat more poignant harshness to the nose, but in a kind of way that seems to balance the sweeter aromas nicely.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter and bready taste with the tropical fruits that were detected in the nose right up front and being joined by a bready and doughy flavor. A grapefruit hop flavor is present upfront as well with it growing stronger as the flavor advances to the middle. Along with the grapefruit comes some light grassiness and a pine flavor. The pine really kicks into gear more at the middle of the taste with it growing quite potent at the end. While that occurs the doughy and sweeter flavors begin fading some with a caramel flavor coming to replace the lost fruit flavors. In the end with the pine getting decently intense, one is left with a rather resinous and moderately sweet but smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are rather nice for the sipping quality of the brew and really allow the resinous pine flavor to shine through at the end

Overall – A rather nice Imperial overall with a nice moderately resinous finish. Very tasty.

Serving type: on-tap
