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.

A-Pours amber. Slight haze, slight head.

S-Impressive aromatics. Some nice florality. Decent intensity. Citrusy.

T-Juicy citrus. The maltiness does a great job of blending with the hops and deepen the flavor.

M-Enough bitterness without being overbearing. Softer carbonation.

O/D-An impressive IPA. Just a nice brew that isn't too bold in any area and easy to drink.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Light copper and crystal clear. Pours a decent, but short lived head with little lace. Aroma has lots of caramel. Higher carbonation and lighter bodied than I'd expect. Boozy for a 7% ABV beer. Leans toward the dry side. Tons of spicy hops. A previous reviewer mentioned pepper and oregano, and I get the same (more the former than the later). I could have used a bit more malt.
