From the can, it pours a slightly hazy reddish amber with a robust head. It leaves lacing as you enjoy it. Nicely hoppy to the nose. The mouth gets the hop flavor, along with some malt. Yum!

I have a drinking buddy who makes regular forays down to Bawlmer for work, hon. He sometimes returns with beers to hand out in a CANta Claus capacity & this was one of them. It is always nice to welcome new beers to The CANQuest (tm)! My thanks go out to him.

From the CAN: "Cute Little Heartbreaker < Seasonal IPA > Sweet Little Lovemaker"; "Northern Native American tribes believed that the Red Fox was a wise and noble messenger. Other tribes saw her as a dangerous prankster. Foxy Red IPA is a bit of both. This sly girl creeps out of her den when the night air gets just a little chill and the Autumn leaves begin to turn. Don’t be fooled by the color as Centennial & Columbus hops, bursting with their piney and fruity resins, combine with this rich, red ale to create a perfect balance of juicy hops and bready malt to usher you gently into the colder months. This seasonal IPA won’t be around long, so catch her if you [CAN]."

I Crack!ed this little fox open, but I wanted to be respectful, so I gave her a gentle Glug into the awaiting glass. Once there, however, a vigorous in-glass swirl was in order to see what she had in store for me. Two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, tawny head later & I was beginning to see the error of my ways. Color was a gorgeous Deep-Amber/Light-Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. 8=O Her pelt was the same color as an old flame's hair! I always said that Linda Lou was a fox. Nose was both earthy with the CANbination of Marris Otter, Munich, Vienna, Crystal and Pale Chocolate malts as well as dank and biting from the Columbus, Centenial, Mosaic and Cascade hops. My mouth was watering unCANtrollably! Mouthfeel was medium, but nothing to get excited about. What did excite me was its taste! I really tasted pine from the Cascade and I also got the earthiness of the Marris Otter & Munich, but there was a bit of chocolate in the mix, which might have been unexpected had I not looked on their website. Finish was dry, but not as biting as their measured 75 IBUs. I think that the malts took off some of the edge, but it was still quite hoppy. I'd happily drink some more.

Cloudy brown-orange color. Thick head retains for a good while, leaving lacing. Nose is of mellow hops. Taste is a really nice balance between somewhat citrusy and piney hops and slightly sweet malt. Fairly dry finish, with nicely mild lingering hops. Body is medium. —Reviewed 2017/10/17

12oz can, sample from the brewery.

More of an old school IPA, that is something I can really appreciate. A little bit darker, well balanced yet the bitterness smacks of being and IPA. Pungent citrus rind and caramel comes to mind, very drinkable and most certainly appeases my hop addiction. Recommended.

Poured from a can into a tulip

L: Semi-opaque copper pour... two fingers of white head leave sticky lacing.

S: Pine and citrus mixed with freshly baked bread.

T/F: Caramel malts and bready flavor to start and giving way to a mildly bitter tropical fruit/grapefruit hop profile. A bit spicy... evergreen was more present in the nose. Sticky and not quite sweet. Sharp at the finish.

O: A tasty red IPA... good mix of caramel malts and fruity/citrus hops. An easy drinker and not overly bitter.
