Sly Fox Odyssey
On the cellar bottle list of Harris Grill in Pittsburgh, they had the Sly Fox Odyssey and I decided to order a bottle. The beer pours a caramel color with a bubbly off-white colored head. The aroma consists of pine, lemon, caramel, and pepper. The taste is both bitter and sweet, starting off with toasted caramel, lemon, and pine. The finish dries the mouth with pepper and the after taste leaves some apricot to pair with extreme bitterness. The alcohol content is 8.4% ABV. The nice addition of apricot on the finish to sweeten everything out made this beer, as it complimented the citrus bitterness very well.
