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.

Pours a nice golden color with a white hue and decent head into my glass. First time I've seen these cans on the shelf.

Balanced pine notes come through in the nose. Just a touch of citrus but not much. Buttery malt as well.

The balance carries over to the taste. Think a traditional American IPA, pre-citrus explosion. There's that decent pine bite and buttery malt.

It leaves a crisp mouthfeel with lingering pine and butter notes.

Very nicely done. I suspect the score of 81 may be based on the fact that it's not a citrus bomb. I think it works very well in the can.
