Sly Fox Rte 113 IPA

Over the past couple months I have had the pleasure of visiting a hand full of breweries. I have found my experiences at these breweries to be very educational and at times incredibly entertaining. I have met some awesome people, while gaining access to fresh beer that I would not normally find at my local brew stores. About a week ago I stopped in at the Sly Fox Brew House in Phoenixville, PA. While there I had a sampler of 5 great beers (O’Reilly’s Stout, McBane’s Summer Solstheis, Octoberfest, Rauch Bier, Oysterfest Red Ale). On my way out I purchased a six-pack to bring home.
One great thing I like about Sly Fox is that their six-packs come in cans! Sly Fox’s Rte 113 IPA is the beer I chose to take home. Rte 113 poured a deep hazy amber and formed a khaki colored, two finger thick head that stuck around for a few minutes. It had a very light Smell of floral hops, citrus and fresh pine needles. I was impressed with the balance in flavors this beer had. This beer has a solid hops flavor offering, followed by maltiness, and a slight caramel sweetness, with a bready aftertaste. The mouthfeel was medium and easy to drink. The 6.6% ABV is present throughout but never over bearing. This is a great IPA, I feel that all the flavors are controlled rather well. This is an IPA for those who want a more rounded beer and not just hop juice! (Although I think there is a great market for HHopss Juice Boxes!) Here’s to Good Beers!
