Poured out as a nice looking copper orange color with a thin white head on top that settles into a thin film on top. The beer look pretty good. The smell of the beer to me smelled like teaberry or menthol of somekind... really not what I expected from an IPA. The taste was off too, not much of a crisp hoppy flavor by any means... the flavors that it does haven come and go quickly. The mouthfeel of the beer is decent with a good carbonation. Overall this beer, much like most of the Slyfox brews left me underwhelmed. I want to like them but I just can't seem to grasp these beers they make.

Just sampled this from a can at Ithaca Coffee Co's weekly beer tasting downtown. The barman was running through a spiel about how Sly Fox is trying the disprove the "negative associations" beer snobs feel about aluminum cans. These cans are lined with the same plastic used for baby bottles! Yikes. A sad intro, IMHO. But pour looked good: nice head, pretty color. Smell was sadly lacking any distinctive hoppiness. Taste was missing hop wallop as well. This is a timid brew, with very attenuated nearly watery mouthfeel, peppy carbonation, and a long lingering hoppy bitter aftertaste the only clue that they're trying for an IPA style. I wouldn't want to drink this again unless it was free and there were no other ales available.

Enjoyed on tap at Bocktown in Robinson Town Center. Pours a very clear, pure amber with some golden/orange highlights. Frothy, light tan foam recedes with some chunky lacing abound. No visible rising carbonation.
Bready, sweet but husky malt. Nutty toastiness with floral/spicy hops. The hops are overall rather mild in the nose. Ok, mostly mild caramel malt.
Well balanced, spicy and floral hops mix with toasty malt and very clean, peppery notes. Noticeable booze warmth, even when still decently cold. Very floral, almost potpourri-like. Hop notes mix with the buttered, toasted bread. Rather one note-ish in my opinion. Not a lot of depth. Enjoyable but seems to die on the palate quickly.
Crisp and bright with lingering bitterness and warmth. Dry and matted in the finish. Worth a try I suppose but that's about it. Also the drinability suffers from the booziness and lack of complexity. I've got to assume this one would become pretty taxing in a hurry.

Pours a quarter finger of white head. Color is an amber bronze.
Aroma: Smells like amarillo hops. Floral with some orange citrus notes. Smells like a brewhouse.
Taste: not too hoppy. Again, orange citrus and amarillo hops. Bready and pale malts. a bit floral.
Mouthfeel: a bit bitter and sticky. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends sticky.
Overall not the best ipa. Too sticky and not hoppy enough. This one wasn't for me.

Pours a deep amber almost hazel like color with auburn highlights. Nice clarity and a huge tarnished white head. Noticeable toffee malt on the nose with piney pink grapefruit hops lingering through the room.
Lingering caramel sweetness after the swallow. Head doesn not wanna die down. Earthy and piney hops are big players in this beer. For 113 ibus the beer has good balance and a nice toffee and caramel malt body to back up the hops. Some bite still exists but not as much as expected. Spicy earthy hops are present with a floral bouquet like finish. Medium body. Pretty good and slightly different offering. Complex. Nice blending of the fruity hop bombs and subtle earthy ipa offerings.
