From the can. No dates anywhere. Sampled on February 1, 2015.

The pour is a slightly cloudy looking medium amber with a good white fizzy head that leaves plenty of lacing.

The aromas are earthy, grassy with some toasted biscuit.

Medium body and smooth.

As for the taste the hop bitterness kicks in more solidly than the aroma suggests with a pucker-up earthy and grassy bitterness that lingers on the backside.

poured from a can into glass. Poor attempt at an IPA. Bitter

A: 3.75 - Cloudy gold color with a moderate but fading head.
S: 3.75 Nice bouquet of citrusy, floral hops.
T: 4.0 - Plenty of bitterness, and a lot of citrus tasting hops: tastes like an IPA back from the late 90s. Very light malt, with a dry finish.
M: 3.75 - Light bodied, perhaps a tad thin, but with good carbonation.
O: 4.0 - Nothing complex here, but it's highly drinkable and I enjoyed it.

Very watery. Even for 6% ipa. Glad I only bought one can.

Picked up a six pack of Foolproof Backyard IPA on a trip to Providence, RI. Poured from the can it was light amber in color, with a mild citrus aroma. The small head had nice lacing. On the first sip I tasted pine resin that quickly turned over to bitterness. The bitter aftertaste lingered awhile, so the finish was not as clean as other IPAs I have tasted recently. Still quite enjoyable to drink.

A: Slightly hazy, light burnt orange color, head retention is a little weak.

S: Pine up front with tangerine in the background that lingers strongly. Floral notes too. All fairly subdued but clearly evident.

T: A dash of pine right away then an orange-tangerine flavor that reminds me of the Push-Ups frozen treats I ate as a kid. Citrus character blends perfectly with the malt. Finishes with a strong floral character that is almost honey like, again blending well with the malt. Bitterness is about right and lingers well.

F: Clean and refreshing with the right amount of bitterness in the finish.

O: I'm surprised that this beer isn't rated a little higher. No Heady killer, but clean, tasty, solid all around, the brewer can be proud. I'm not grilling for awhile but will try it out on the deck next spring.
