Sly Fox- Odyssey

A- Light caramel orange, good carbonation, with a creamy white head. Good lacing.
S- Sweet tangy citrus fruit hops with a lighter amount of caramel buttery malt.
T- Sweet sugary caramel malt holds its own against a thick onslaught of grapefruit hops.
M- Sweet sugary maltiness bitter citrus and earthy pine hops. Solid balance.

Overall- Well balanced and creamy. If it weren't boozy it would be sessionable.

Appearance: Golden Orange with a full off white head that left some decent lacing.
Smell: Overwhelming grapefruit citrus smell. Very clean.
Taste: Hops tend to lean toward floral, slightly different than the smell. Intense, lingering bitterness, but enjoyable
Mouthfeel: oily, mild carbonation
Drinkability: very enjoyable, but due to the bitterness, one is enough. I will gladly purchase another bottle and enjoy ths IPA.
This was certainly a pleasant suprice.

A - Clear gold. Big rocky head of dense foam.

S - Malty with citrus hops. Slight toast and alcohol.

T - Not over-the-top hoppy. Strong maltiness to go with decent hops and a big bitter finish. Alcohol is also noticeable. Hop lean towards bitterness rather than big juicy flavours. Light toasted character.

M - Astringent with a moderate body and carbonation.

D - Not my favorite but decently drinkable.

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

A: Golden orange with not much off-white head and leaves some lacing.

S: String pine and citrus with a hint of sweetness in the background.

T: Pine and earth dominate up front then grapefruit, lemon, and floral notes. There is some maltiness but there is far more hops than malts flavor.

M: Creamy carbination, slightly oily, and very bitter, dry, and clean in the finish.

D: This is a fine east coast hop bomb. I enjoy one or two of these from time to time. I enjoyed last years more but still a nice beer.
