Craft beer in a can. Sly Fox, you are makin' me laugh. I save about a third of the beer in the can so I can pound it from the can after I complete this review. Can provided by BeerBeing as part of BIF33...thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a two-finger dark butter-colored head over a nearly clear red-amber colored-liquid. The color is gorgeous. Smells grapefruity pithy with oranges and tangerine. Apricot and pear. A touch piney and caramel is buried. Smells sweet and delicious.
Tastes wonderful. Nice APA with a creamy smooth aftertaste of caramelized malts. Fairly subtle flavor profile in the mouth. moderate body has some dextrinous character in a creamy way. Flavors are undefined gentle sweetness, sharp (but not intense) grapefruit pith, and a sting from fine carbonation bubbles (a bit too much carb, IMO). Hops have a drying character that's not quite grassy, more along the lines of a rough tasting oil. Pine comes in as part of the aftertaste. Near the bottom of the glass and the aftertaste of this beer is now much more dry grassy than before. Has a little bit of apricot, too.
