Sly Fox Route 113 India Pale Ale
I picked up a bottle of Sly Fox Route 113 India Pale Ale when I was last in New Jersey. The beer pours a brilliant amber color with a lofty and foamy white head. The aroma consists of caramel and toffee with a light hop hint. The taste is sweet and malty with a bit of caramel and toffee. The hops hit on the back of the tongue on the finish and a slight sourness to it. There is a faint lemon and grapefruit citrus, but not as prevalent as in some IPAs. Due to the hops, it has a slight dryness to it. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. While not as overly hoppy and and citrusy as a lot of IPA, Sly Fox's Route 113 IPA is was quite delicious and very well done. I highly recommend this beer, especially to a new enthusiast who may not like a ton of hops.
