Growler thanks to CUE45. round two of this beverage means I must rate it.

Smells like a normal IPA nothing special..having this next to heady topper, columbus IPA, head hunter and white rajah this is the one I will keep dabbling in.

i felt the orange creamsicle vibe more so last time then now but still delicious

thank you to virginia for bringing more then just busch gardens (380 characters)

big thanks to Rhettroactive

pours a deep ruby brown with a hint of copper. not much head on this but a decent bit of retention.

bits of orange and citrus with a sweet malty base. light scents of booze.

very citrus based with a dominating orange, tangerine, clementine. light bitterness towards the end. quite sweet with a candied malt. orange aftertaste with a hint of grapefruit. i even picked up a bit of orange peel.

very full bodied with a moderate carbonation. very slick and oily.

very good IPA! solid flavor through out. easy to drink and never tiring. glad i could try this. wish it had a bit more on the nose, thats my only complaint. (649 characters)

Massive thanks goes out to drabmuh for sending me this one in a past trade! Shared this one with my doppelganger while sitting by the pool on my birthday weekend! Served from growler into a Stone nonic multiple times. Poured a deep red-orange with a minimal cream colored head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, orange, orange peel, citrus, and citrus hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, orange, citrus, and citrus hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The aroma on this one was what made it for me. I could see how people would think this smells like an orange creamsicle as all of the components to make that smell possible are here. The flavor however is more citrusy IPA in nature and quite easy to drink. The hop profile on this one wasn't overly bitter, making it quite enjoyable. A definite must try if given the opportunity! (946 characters)

This is the best Mad Fox beer I've had so far and I would highly recommend it to any IPA or pale ale fan.

A- Orange Whip pours from the draft a mahogany/amber color with reddish highlights and a wispy head.

S- The beer pops with a strong hit of pineapple accented with notes of citrus, fruit cocktail and other hop aromas.

M- This medium-bodied beer is smooth through the middle and ends with a refreshing dry note.

T- The beer--with its expert balance of bitter hops and sweet malts--tastes like vacation in a glass with notes of pineapple, citrus, fruit cocktail, peaches caramelized in brown-sugar, and pineapple upside down cake. (639 characters)

Damn fine beer. Pours a deep amber with a two finger off white head that dissipates to a ring relatively quickly, but maintains a bit of form until the beer is finished. Decent lacing. Pours a bit darker than a typical ipa. Interesting appearance. The smell is pretty unreal. Huge orange notes, complemented by some lemon, some pine, and some tropicals. The other notes give it some more complexity, but the orange is huge here, and it is fantastic. The orange is downed a notch in the flavor, and the biscuit and caramel malt is a bit more noticeable, but the flavor is still quite good. Orange is still the biggest player here, but the pine is certainly upped a notch, as is the bitterness. Sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Very good ipa. I'm very happy I found this, as the brewery is 5 minutes from my house. I see a lot of growlers of this in the future. (854 characters)

Tried on tap at the brew pub. Nice burnt orange color, aromas of oranges, oranges, and more oranges. Tastes like dry hopped orange juice, but its awesome. Rich fruit forward front with a nice clean, dry, hoppy finish. Apparently uses a new hybrid hop, taste is quite unique and worth checking out. (297 characters)

On tap at the Brewpub in Falls Church.

Nice clear dark orange amber color with little head, average nose which is light citrus.

Taste is very good, clean with mainly citrus hops and good malt balance.

Mouthfeel is a bit too light for me.

Overall a very good beer that falls a bit short of my expectation for an IPA.

After the review I spoke to the bartender, found that this usually unfiltered beer was filtered for a competition, which may explain the difference between my experience and the prior consencious. (517 characters)
