Main St. Brewing Naked Fox IPA Review Main St. Brewing – Naked Fox IPA Review

The Naked fox is an IPA from the Main Street Brewing Company. This beer has a sharp and simple label design comes in at 6.8% and has a mid-range bitterness rating of 55 IBUs. Pouring this beer from the bomber bottle it is a colour of gold which is opaque and topped with two fingers of dense and lacing head. An aroma of classic pine and citrus hits the nose with a light kick of tropical fruit. The flavour is very nice. While the pine and citrus were up front on the nose, Southern Hemisphere hops take charge in the flavour with a lightly sweet flavour of mango, orange and pineapple along side a citrus acidity. At the same time a nice, mid-bodied malt base props up the hop flavour and leads into a finish where the northwest flavours of pine settle in. This beer is one of the best to come from Main Street and we can only hope that it will stick around as a part of their core lineup.

Alcohol – 6.8%
IBU – 55
