Salvador Brewing Co. | Foxhole Double NE IPA

Foxholes were shelters built by the Easy Company American paratroopers during the Battle of the Bulge on World War II, Hitler's trump card on the Western Flank. Foxhole Double New England IPA was created in honor to the ones that tumbled. A real citric and fruity aromas shelter. Live this experience! (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)

  • Beer: Foxhole Double NE IPA
  • Style: Double New England IPA (21B. Specialty IPA: double-strenght New England IPA)
  • ABV: 7.8%
  • IBU: 75
  • Brewery:
  • Look: pale orange color, turbid, with a great white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
  • Aroma: its aroma is dominated by fruity notes, reminding of orange, peach and mango. In a lower level, there us a presence of resinous notes.
  • Taste: on its taste, the citric fruitiness is even more evident, reminding heavily of grapefruit and lemon. Along with the fruitiness, herbal notes are present as well, as well as resinous notes. There is an assertive bitterness, that lasts for the whole sip and for a long time after you swallow the beer, but without harshness.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-high body, medium-high carbonation and a dry but long finish. Fluffy, silk-like;
  • Overall: Foxhole is a great challenger against Tomahawk for the position of Salvador’s best Double NE IPA. It has a similar proposal, in my opinion, but with minor differences that, despite being minor, end up having a significant difference on the end product. Again, it’s one of the best IPAs that I drank so far. Fruity, but with an assertive and long-lasting bitterness.
