Mad Fox Orange Whip IPA



On Saturday, Mad Fox tapped their popular Orange Whip IPA, a citrusy and very hoppy brew. The place was packed with Orange Whip fans, and luckily I had a chance to get down to Mad Fox and try it out. Here's all the details on this freshly tapped beer:

I'm not a big fan of the very citrusy beers, but the hopiness of the beer sort of takes some of that taste away by smashing you with hops. It gives it a good balance. I like the Sandy Eggo IPA that is on tap now, a little less citrusy, but I'd grab an Orange Whip especially when the weather gets a bit warmer.
