2.6/5 rDev -26.8%
From the can into a tree house snifter. Pours moderately dark orange. Not much head but good retention. Smell is of muted hops and malt. Not great smelling at all. Beer has a slight soapy taste, weird carbonation and almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel is not so good either. The carbonation is prickly.
A bit disappointed in this. Had heard good things about this fairly new fairly local brewery. Will give them another shot, but I don't recommend this at all.

Another beer courtesy of the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Came gushing out of the can making quite a mess, despite no agitation on my end. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, a bit of hops. Taste is bitter, hoppy, a bit of lemons, kind of unusual for the style, and a touch unpleasant. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

My wife says Foolproof was one of her standouts at the ACBF. I thought I'd try.
Straight outta the can! Retro green and black grandad's argyle matte can that is. Canned date handwritten in "Shahpie" on the outside of the 6 pack.
Pine and grapefruit aroma. Tastes like grapefruit, pine and watered down sweet malt. A little thin and a highly carbonated. Very soapy. I understand and appreciate the concept of a lighter IPA for grilling sessions and it did me just fine after a trail ride but it comes across more sloppy, not refined. Or minimized. Or whatever.
