A - Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a tulip glass. A hazy pumpkin pie orange

S - Mostly yeasty homebrew smell. Little hop & citrus on the nose as well.

T - Yeasty homebrew, subtle hop

M - Good mouthfeel. Smooth carbonation and nice finish, but not the best taste.

O - I like Foley Brothers beers, but this is a beer I wouldn't buy again.

I like the ginger wheat and brown ale.

Unfiltered and so a bit cloudy in the glass. OK. More yellow than golden. Flavor is hoppy and piney and… woody? Not much for aroma.

Pours a hazy golden/orange with a persistent fine white head. Flavor profile provides noticeable bitterness, but no prominent floral or citusy notes. This leans to the resin/pine side of the IPA flavors, but those fade quickly leaving just a lingering bitterness. Aromatics are excellent and promise some flavors that don't appear. Good but it is missing something.

Picked up a bomber while driving through VT. Poured in a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, bright copper coloring with a slow flow of carbonation and a creamy, filmy, clingy, off-white head. Aromas of subtle caramel in the backbone, with a super bitter blast of hops resin, lemon and grapefruit highlights, and popcorn characteristics. Flavors are a bit on the light side, with a pepper, cedar, and resiny blend of hops characteristics. Malt backbone also comes off a little on the light side. The beer is balanced, but the flavor profiles could pack a bit more punch for my tastes. The aftertaste is tangy sweet, with more of the spicing of pepper, basil, and oregano. Good linger, with a tangy, roasted sweet character on a slick, slightly dry finish.
