Copper color with a one finger thick head that reduces to a constant plate and leaves a wall of laces.
Aroma of caramel malt, bread, faint herbal citrus and earthy hops. Although, it is not heavily dry-hopped, it is quite pleasant.
Very original flavor for an IPA with an initial bitter punch, triggering a couple of sneezes (my internal thermometer for hopness). Notes of caramels, citrus, herbal and earthy hops, pine, tea bag, grass, pineapple, and American spice yeast.
Medium body with low carbonation. Alcohol of 7% abv is definitely not felt.
This beer is a hop sampler, quite opposite to a single hop. Hard to interpret its multiple personalities, that sometimes even fells assertive. Recommendable. In my opinion it is underated.

3.6/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Cloudy, burnt orange with a two-finger width, light tan, soft/frothy head. Head slowly disappears and leaves lacing all the way around the glass.

Aroma - Combination of caramel sweetness and floral/resinous hop flavors.

Taste - Similar to the smell with the caramel sweetness and the floral hops.

Mouthfeel - A very, very bitter IPA that almost numbs the tongue. Slight carbonation. Some stickiness to go along with the overpowering bitterness.

Overall - First beer from Sly Fox. Didn't have any real expectations going into it other than knowing it would be a bitter IPA at 113 IBUs. The bitterness of the beer just overpowered all the flavors/aromas which took away from my overall perception of the beer.

Six pack from Giant Eagle $9.99
Undated can at 40 degrees into goblet
Aroma piney
Head average (3 cm), off white, frothy, mostly lasting
Body dark orange, hazy
Flavor begins with a piney bitterness, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Ends with a light chalky astringency
Palate medium, slight oilyness, carbonation lively

I’ve had this on draft, in bombers, and in cans. It’s a nice, go-to IPA, easy drinking.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type - Can

Appearance - Dark golden tan/brown. 1 inch foamy head with lots of lacing.

Smell - Some dank hops, malts, a little sugar note, not getting much else.

Taste - Starts off with a big malt note with a piney, grapefruit hop kick. Some sugars add very minor sweetness to battle the caramel malts and bitter hops. Not much else going on.

Mouthfeel - Tongue gets lots of malts, then the palate gets the hops and some sugars. Aftertaste is hop bitter and dry.

Overall - A one-two punch, you get caramel malts, then you get bitter piney hops. Id like to try this beer with less malts so the hops can come out front and really take over. Hell, add even more hops, add dry hops, make this a dipa if you will. Decent beer, just nothing special.
