4.18/5  rDev +17.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip. Purchased in Wakefield, RI a few days after receiving it, so it's super fresh.

A- Pours an ever so slightly hazy light golden body with a thick bubbly white head that reduces very slowly to some chunky, frothy foam that leaves some super thick lacing. Beautiful, a near picture perfect IPA.

S- Super fresh smelling. Very floral with citrus, honey, pine, and resin.

T- Pine and citrus rind sitting on a caramel malty backbone. Sticky hop and resin notes linger on the tongue for a few minutes.

M- Medium carbonation, medium body. Easy drinker.

I was pleasantly surprised with this new brewery's interpretation of the classic American IPA. It's quite flavorful and has a very good balance of hop zing and malt character. On a scale of tropical/fruity to resinous/piney, this would be on the resinous/piney side.

From the first smell to the last sip, this is a very enjoyable brew to put down. Well done, Foolproof.

A: hazy, gold; 3 finger head that faded slowly; nice lacing;

S: interesting nose; the first thing I picked up was oak - don't know where that's coming from; some pine and citrus as well;

T: piney, earthy; a little different; bitterness hits pretty quickly and it finishes with the same piney, earthy, bitterness; well balanced;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; crisp;

O: the earthiness of this beer is a little different and interesting, although I would prefer more citrus and floral notes;

On cask at Track 84 Warwick, listed as Prince of the Yahd
Comes to the table in a proper imperial pint glass. Visually, a slightly hazy light golden color with a huge fluffy creamy head that survives till the glass is empty. Extremely impressive retention! Aromas of bready malt and floral and citrusy hops. Flavor is bready with hints of caramel and just enough citrus and earth to balance with a nudge to the hop side. Medium body with a light level of carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. First beer of the night, so easy drinking, it slid completely down my throat before I knew it. Might be more of a pale than IPA, but its a solid brew.
