Pours a dark copper orange amber. I thought the color especially dark. I couldn't really make up my mind if I thought it was clear and it's close enough. Has a beige head ofterrific soft foam that fell slowly and left really great lace.

Nose is faint. Light pine. Not much brightness or fruit to speak of. No real tropical notes, but some orange and lemon. Mostly herbal and floral. I would like to know which kind of hops were used. They are earthly and not too sharp at all. Not what I was expecting. The malt is caramel malt but nondescript. It does get a little sugary sweet as it warms. There is a strange kind ofspice on the nose that I would not have thought odd in a pils but that I do think is odd in an IPA. It has a vegetable quality.

Taste is lackluster. The muddled citrus on that bland malt. It left a good bitter on the mid palate but it finished dry and with lots of oil and pine. It has a strange sweet quality to it that I am sure is due to the type of hops used. That pilsner type spice is no compliment to what I am expecting in the way of an ipa. A good strong bit of alcohol has crept into the nose and onto the palate. The hops remain steadfast at floral only, earthy only and without any fruit to tempt or tantalize.

This was at best a fair IPA. I would not attribute all it's imbalance or flaws to the type of hops used although I am pretty sure that might be a factor. The nose improves substantially as it warms and wouldn't you know it's east kent goldings and bravo hops. I will say that it drank better as it warmed. In fact after I read what kind of hops were used I adjusted my opinion. Hmmmm.

Poured out of a 12 ounce can into a shaker pint.

A- nice copper color with a thick 1/2 inch tannish head

S- nice blend of sweetish caramel, maltiness with a floral hop background

T- caramel, toffee malt. Little to no hop flavor just hop bitterness. Starts out sweet caramel then BAM, a bitter and dry finish with a touch of alcohol warmth. Nice.

M- almost chewy from the heavy malt bill, appealing actually.

O- Its called 113 after the ibu's, but do not let that turn you away from this very tasty and drinkable brew. The high ibu's are nicely balanced with a delicious, caramel malt that has the ability to fend off the hops to make for a nicely balanced IPA. Sly Fox is spot on with there rendition of an IPA. It is a nicely balanced ale that is quite drinkable. It is 7%, but beware because it is so drinkable. May I have another please?
