I generally love everything Sly Fox does, but I think I found the one beer of theirs that I do not agree with. The packaging of the beer looks fabulous. The smell is very faint and somewhat flat, especially for an IPA. The taste is a mix of light citrus and caramel with a grapefruit rind end. I will say, the beer does taste a lot better when in the can as opposed to being in a glass. The finish is dry, long, overly bitter, and slightly oily. Their Odyssey IPA is heads and tails a better beer. This is a pass for me in the future.

The new peel off top can.

S: Sharp maltiness, almost wort like. Sharp faint hoppiness, spicy almost. All i can think of is ricecakes.

L: Gorgeous amber-red, crystal clear. Big, creamy white head with 1/2 inch retention. Great lacing.

T: Sharp spicy hoppiness overwhelmed by a very ricecake like maltiness. Not too sweet. Medium low grassy bitterness followed a sharp maltiness. Finishes fairly dry with some resin.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Unfortunately, little aroma, kinda defeats the purpose of the twist off can top. Had a 8-15-13 date, so should've been fresh. Cool can, shitty IPA.

A big thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. poured from a 16 oz. can. I am not feeling this pull back lid, by the way. Has a golden/orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of caramel, some hops. Taste is bitter, hops, resin, caramel, a bit strange but not bad. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, a decent beer, but their are way to many better IPA's out there to bother with this one.

I am going to feel badly after this gets posted as this CAN was given to me by Sly Fox people in furtherance of The CANQuest (TM), but I do NOT like the 360-degree design! I am sorry, but I lose out on the Crack & Glug, plus it creates a separate piece that the modification away from a pop top solved years ago. This CAN seems to me to be a step back rather than forward.

From the CAN: "360 [degree] Wide Open Flavor & Aroma"; "CANS: Infinitely Recyclable"; "This IPA was brewed and [CAN]ned by Sly Fox exclusively for Crown Cork & Seal to showcase their innovative new 360 End at the 2013 Craft Brewers Conference"; "Crown Brand-Building Packaging"; "As inventor of the bottle cap, Crown has supported the craft beer industry for over a century. At Crown, we understand each hand crafted brew has a distinct personality. That is why we offer so many incredible options to differentiate your brand from the competition. From high-quality color printing technologies to thermochromic and tactile inks to our patented [CAN] shaping technology to custom laser-etched tab designs, one thing is clear: Crown's world-class manufacturing practices combined with the highest quality service and innovation leadership have you covered ... 360 degrees!"

The Pop of the top was less than satisfying and I simply followed with the best pour I could manage, having overcome a protruding lip. I guess that it is indicative of Crown's desire to have the CANsumer drink directly from the CAN, but I rarely do that, preferring to deCANt into a glass. The foamy finger of dense, tawny head did not hold up well in the increasing heat and humidity of the 4th of July, dissipating fairly quickly. Color was a deep-amber with NE-quality clarity and some CO2 bubbles in evidence. Nose had the same caramel- sweet quality of the EIPA that I reviewed previously and I began to wonder if previous reviewers might be right. Mouthfeel was medium and while it was hoppy enough to be CANsidered an AIPA, it had an inherent odd tartness that left me shaking my head. I know that reviewers dislike what they refer to as an "imbalance" in AIPAs, but it usually does not bother me. In this case, however, the beer seemed to take on a feeling of saturation, where it was overhopped to the point that it got a grainy feeling and the hops did not mesh well. Finish was semi-dry and generally unsatisfactory. I would never do a drain pour, but this was not terribly pleasant.
