4.47/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Sample pour into a snifter at the brewing company bar.

Golden amber orange body with lemon like edged hues, with a wispy like white head and some minimal spotted lacing.

Nose is a giant apricot and tropical fruit rush. However, a distinct dried apricot sense seems to totally dominate the nose.

Taste feels like chewed dried apricots and classic fresh chewy feeling hops. Soft apricots seem to come off a nice soft texture to match with a slight light malt.

Overall an extremely fruity forward IPA. Real enjoyable! Walking out of here without a full glass was hard, but if I did they would probably have to peel me off the floor to get me home.

Serving type: on-tap

Mad Fox Brewing Company - Two Hemispheres Wet-Hop IPA, poured into a Fiddlehead snifter.

Look - Pours cloudy caramel with some chunky head with good spots of lacing.

Smell - Dank juicy citrus (galaxy?), not much malt.

Taste - Hops are citrus and the center of the taste and it ends with a touch of malt.

Mouthfeel - Not boozy, slightly sticky. Heavy-light bodied with moderate carb. Great drinkability.

Overall - This is great stuff, definitely need to get my hands on some Orange Whip!

4.49/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Golden color with a frothy, long lasting 3 finger bone white head. Relatively translucent in color with lots of tiny bubbles in this 3 day old growler fill.Lacing is above average.

Tropical fruit nose,fresh aroma,slight malt presence.

Taste is a reflection of the aroma, nice and juicy. Last few sips had an almost light plum aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is decent, a bit oily,smooth, soft carbonation.

Best wet hop ale I have tried so far, another solid effort from Mad Fox.

4.33/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: hazy dirty-golden in color, with thin head, collecting at edges, very minor lacing
S: have to opt out a little, could not get a clean smell at pub. I got citrus/orange and something I was pretty sure not related to the beer. There might be a mustiness to it, hard to tell

T: hoppy from the get go, some carbonation, but a grassy grapefruit taste hits with the first taste. The carbonation leads to some hints of soda, but the lemon and grapefruit taste overtake that. The end is mellow citrus-fruity and mildly earthy
M: there is a good but not overpowering pull on the tongue, drying it out as the taste ages. The dryness also grabs the back of the throat a little.

O: almost a perfect example of a solid version of a dry, bitter IPA. There isn't much "special" or unique about it, but it won't disappoint and should impress some in its simplicity.

Serving type: on-tap

snifter serving at the brewpub

a: served in a standard snifter, two hemispheres is a bright orange in color, capped with an off-white head that shows average retention

s: loaded with juicy tropical fruits - notably orange and, to a slightly lesser extent, passionfruit, on a body of balanced caramel and pale malts, vivid hops rise to the front and really show off what "fresh" means, very nice

m: carbonation nicely lively, not abrasive or harsh, with a moderate, satisfying body

t: similar structure to the nose - moderately sweet caramel and pale malts provide a palate for the application of the juicy, oily fresh hops - big flavors of juicy orange pulp and oily rind, sweet/tart passionfruit, closing out with a moderate-high bitterness and lingering grain flavors, quality stuff here

o: really a great example of the style, there are some better versions out there, but this one provides everything one could ask for in the style - big juicy hops, and lots of them
