See through amber look with a big off white head. Caramel malt forward nose with not much sweetness and an almost vegetal back. Malty flavor with a big bready ending, some pine in there. Decently carbonated, I might be getting something metallic from the can. Meh No offense but Sly Fox is very middle of the road.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear dark golden amber pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head... great lacing.

S: Caramely sweet malts... resinous hops. Pine and citrus rind.

T/F: Follows the nose. Biscuity sweet malts and toasted grains. Quickly turns bitter... pine and citrus... a bit herbal. Balanced... the finish is evergreen and caramel malts.

O: An okay IPA. Big bitterness... no bad flavors... but nothing all that exciting either. The relatively high ABV hurts the drinkability. Don't love it, don't hate it... would drink it again.

12ox can into a pint glass. best by 1/19/17. kudos to Sly Fox for clear freshness dating. D'oh to me for not knowing what year it is now. a year past due. oh well.

looks good. faintly hazy amber body. good off white creamy head leaving gobs of lacing. steady carbonation.

sweet malty aroma.

as expected, due to the age, it is a malt bomb. but it's a pleasant enough drink, no nasty aftertaste, smooth and slammable.

mouth borders on full, finish is malty and slightly grainy.

Overall, not a disastrous purchase, and quite drinkable. will re-review if I come across a fresh one.

My standby. When I run out of the good stuff, this is my reserve. A great deal. The price is very good compared to the better known brews. Just bought another case yesterday. This is one that taste better each time I open another one.

This beer pours a slightly hazy amber orange color with a huge, frothy, eggshell white head. Retention is decent and there is tons of sticky hanging lacing.

Smell is dank pine, metallic alcohol, caramel and bready malts as well as stale beer.

Taste is the same, but that stale smell does not carry over to the taste. It is well balanced, but the flavor is nothing noteworthy.

Feel is light, oily and resinous. Solid carbonation.

Overall a decent beer, but certainly not something I would buy again with all of the stellar IPA options out there.

Clear amber color with beige head. Aroma is mostly malty with caramel notes and toasted malt. Also some sweet orange peel and earthy hops. Taste starts with caramel malt, burnt sugar, finish has a bittersweet orange flavor with a slight resiny aftertaste. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. It's not bad at all but it's too malty for my taste.

Pours a hazy amber color with a small off-white head.

Smells of piney hops with some semi-sweet citrus.

Taste is similar, yet more intense than the smell. There is a quite unpleasant sourness in addition to the piney hopiness. Which is quite a shame since I think this beer has near a perfect carbonation and body for the style. I'll avoid this going forward, but I see how someone with a very different palate than me enjoying this.
