22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
First off, I was really excited to try this beer. 113 IBU's oh yeah!
Pours a nice ruby red copper with a solid 2 finger head. Head sticks around a long time and turns into a solid off white thick cap on top. At first it didn't leave much lacing, but when the head died down a bit, it left thick rings on the glass. Very nice looking beer.
Light hop nose. Slightly metallic. Not very potent smelling but actually kind of nice smelling. Has a soft fresh baked biscuit smell in the back.
Taste at first didn't grab me. Bitterness hit me at first but not much citrus or pine. As the beer warms and my palate adjusts it becomes quite tastey and very drinkable. If this beer had a little more malt it would be amazing. The taste I'm getting is lots of bitter hops and nice biscuity malt. This beer goes from OK to very tastey halfway through the glass.
Mouthfeel is slightly creamy and medium bodied. Carbonation is spot on. Not too prickly and not at all under carbonated. Would have gave it a higher rating if it was a little fuller. Just seemed like a big beer but not heavy enough IMO.
Drinkability is amazingly high. Probably because this beer feels like a double IPA but is only 7% ABV. Don't get me wrong, 7% is not a lightweight and it definately hits you after a pint. At 113 IBU's its amazingly smooth and the bitterness is quite delightful. I could probably drink 2 of these 22oz bombers easily.
Well it's time to pour the rest of this tastey bomber. This is my frist brew from Sly Fox and I'm impressed. Definately another one to add into rotation. Cheers!
