Brew Review – Sly Fox Rt. 113 IPA

sly fox rt 113 ipaBrewery: Sly Fox Beer
Brew: Rt 113 IPA
Style: IPA
ABV: 7.0%
IBUs: 113 (I see what they did there)

Price: $10.99 (64 oz growler)
Their Take: A big, flavorful IPA for all the hopheads out there, brewed with British Pale and Crystal malts, and hopped with Centennial, Cascade, German Northern Brewer, and UK East Kent Goldings. Bold and spicy.

My Thoughts
Delicious. Absolutely delicious. If you like IPA’s, this is a beer for you. It’s heavy and full in the mouth, yet remains crisp and doesn’t overwhelm. The aroma is pure hops, and they really nailed it with their mix. I do think the Centennial takes the lead on this beer, but that’s fine by me, as I’ve become a big fan of that particular hop. After a drink, the flavor lingers but doesn’t turn overly bitter despite the high IBUs, and left me looking forward to my next sip. It really is a fine balance to strike, and I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. It’s one of the better IPA’s I’ve had recently, and I definitely recommend picking this one up if you come across it.

Some New England juice picked up from the source at @proclamationale. Pit stop on the road to Newport for some Ghandi Bot and Fuzzy. I really enjoy this label on Mikkeller's Windy Hill cans. @eaglerockbrew was an add-on in my very first trade years ago, so they've got a special place in my beer memory. Had to bring some back with me when I found it at @bottlecraft while on vacation in San Diego.
