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.

Very excited to have found the newest Foley Bros. bomber in Winooski, Vt. Served in a Citizen Cider snifter.

A: Golden orange, not clear yet not entirely cloudy. Quite attractive.

S: Spicy, piney, citrus. A bit of malt.

T: Like the smell, the first thing that hits you is the spicey, piney hops. For a single IPA, there are a great deal of (VT grown) hops in here. Thereafter comes a brief moment of citrus hops alongside the pine, but this gives way to a bit of significant malt--not enough to be an English IPA but the malt is much more noticeable than Heady, for example.

M: Not insubstantial at all, very significant. Fruity, bready, piney, and citrusy.

O: Having seen Foley Bros. bombers on shelves for several months without having tried either of their introductory offerings (Ginger Wheat & Brown) I was excited to see their newest offering at the fantastic Winooski Bevvy. Couldn't pass it up. And, frankly, having ambiguous expectations for an IPA from a relatively new brewery that I have no experience with, this IPA is up there among my favorite Vermont IPAs. A bit stronger and hoppier than my stand-by Fiddlehead IPA, this is a fantastically surprising VT IPA from Brandon, Vt. Highly recommended, I will be grabbing this bomber again.

Made primarily from local VT incredients this is a very solid IPA. at seven percent this veers a little close to IIPA territory for me with hop dankness that lingers long on the tongue more reminiscent of that IIPA category. The pour gives a shortlived head that leaves no lacing. The color is a copper-amber with a fair amount of haze. Heavy citrus and pine hop character, little malts coming through and very little sweetness, which is nice.

Overall a very solid drinker if you are looking for a lot of hops.

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.
