Rated in a taster against other Mad Fox IPAs.

A: dirty yellow tending towards an amber hue, with small-bubbled edge head and decent lacing.
S: as with most MAd Fox beers, I have trouble getting much from the smell. Little copper-tinged, earthy, honey-orange if I agitate and sniff hard.
T: a little more caramel than the other IPAs. The bitterness is subdued and combines with malt to be citrusy, maybe a little pineapple or honey-crisp apple.
M: again, kinda subdued, but a dry tingle sneaks up to make its presence felt, but not overpowering
O: this has been one of my favorite Mad a Fox IPAs, and is very drinkable. Compared to the "higher end" IPAs, though, it just doesn't match up.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

16 oz. pint glass poured at the brewery on 3/1/14, drank over 30 minutes (including on the tour)

A: 3/3 - amber-brownish coloration, initially frothy white head settles into a subtle glass lacing, little clarity (likely due to hop haze); moderate alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - moderate amount of citrus - grapefruit, tangerine, lemon - and some piney resinousness; also picking up toasty malts (Marris Otter, Vienna); some alcohols as well

T: 16/20 - on the front of the tongue, there is a slap of citrus bitterness - nothing too intense - that develops into more citrus hops flavors - Meyer lemon, tangerine and grapefruit; some moderate malt bitterness and alcohol flavors balance out the hops; dry finish and subtle inviting aftertaste

M: 4/5 - moderate amount of hop oils, some alcohol fullness but generally muted

O: 8/10 - this is a really nice all-Centennial beer, which came as a surprise because, with the exception of Bell's Two Hearted Ale, I am generally not a fan of all-Cascade or Super Cascade beers; like many of their Mad Fox's other hoppy beers, it's more analogous to an English IPA than a West Coast IPA with some toast and roast, which is their modus operandi and fine by me

TOTAL - 41/50

Served on draft at Mad Fox, beer is copper / dark amber with a slight haze, moderate carbonation, some lacing, moderate retention.

Aroma is nice, citrusy and sweet with hints of bready malt.

Beer is medium to light in body, sweet but quite hoppy, moderate bitterness on the finish. A decent IPA that I would have again.

A nice American IPA showing off its all Centennial hop bill.

Presentation: Growler fill from Bill Madden´s Mad Fox. Menu notes all Centennial hops, and main characteristics, and 7.5% Alc. by Vol. Served in a tulip glass from the growler (also had on tap on a nonic pint at the brew pub).

A - Hazy medium to deep amber pour, nice creamy crown with good surface memory and nice touches of lacing.

S - Malty caramel upfront, fresh sense of emerging grassy and floral hops...

T - Taste in sync with a nice biscuity quality, and a long emerging bitter touch, grassy, softly citric, floral notes… Some grapefruit and pine with a nice and stimulating bitterness.

M - Medium body, medium/light carbonation with a smooth flow punctuated by a nice bitter finish.

O - Another nice one, stimulating sense of Centennial hops holding up the brew very well.

Notes: The tap serving felt slightly fresher, and although the growler has held pretty well, it was intriguing to see the malty notes emerge so prominently at first. Very pleasing IPA in any case, and well worth the visit to the Fox alongside all else as always.
