Fox Friday have built a name for their heavy use of hops and this quartet is no exception. Training Day is a West Coast made with Centennial, Vic Secret and Strata, that’s orange, clear and is essentially a true classic for fans of the style. By “essentially” we mean that alongside heavy hits of grapefruit, dank pine and candied orange, therere is also a ripe rush of berry notes and mix of tropical fruits that wash across the palate before the bitterness sinks in.
Let It Go lets go of any clarity and jumps to hazy IPA territory while bringing together Galaxy, Motueka and Strata hops. In this pale, smooth and soft release those hops bring out passionfruit, lime, pine and a zesty and slightly herbal finish.
Heading Stateside heads into even slicker territory, with the Oat Cream IPA built on some of America’s finest flowers in Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic in the shape of both pellets and Cryo. With a very smooth base to work with, the aroma and flavours jump between a mix of pithy orange juice, mango, nectarine and pine and while it’s largely a gentle and slightly sweet affair, a touch of bitterness is left behind on the palate. Finally, Noise Cancelling is the largest and richest display out of them all, with the Oat Cream DIPA all about Citra and Neslon Sauvin. The result is a lush array where the hops bring forward mango, melon, orange and fleshy white grape.
