look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Bright orange. Nice white head. Lacing clings to the glass. A few bubbles remain on the surface.

Smell - Orange citrus. Musty grapefruit. Sweet doughy malts.

Taste - Doesn't live up to the nose. Similar. Orange hops. Grapefruit. Grainy malts. A little bit sweet.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Mild sweetness.

Overall - Enjoyable. Nothing remarkable, but I liked it.

Foley Brothers Brewing - Native IPA, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a darker hazy caramel amber with a massive frothy head. Great retention. Lacing abound. Interesting looking brew, swirls of darker caramel in it.

Smell - Citrus and spice (yes, spice) hops with smooth malt underneath. Somewhat astringent and off-putting aroma with the astringency but the rest of it is nice.

Taste - Rich malt, a bit creamy but then a wave of citrus hops comes in after and finishes pine and pepper.

Mouthfeel - Sits slightly bitter and a bit throat warm boozy and peppery. Low carbonation. Medium-bodied. Decent drinkability.

Overall - Pleasantly surprised by their first IPA. Well blended and smooth with a nice hop blast that is unique due to spice. Can't wait to see how this evolves and what else these guys come up with.
