Beautiful beer. I felt like the most recent release of Foggy was an out of the park, walk off homer. Foggier is a walk-off double (no pun intended.) It's very close to being a straight up 5 but lacking some complexity. Despite that, a phenomenal offering from Lord Henry!

4.5 across the board. Pours a hazy light yellow with minimal head. Nose is slightly tropical with citrus and floral mingling in. Taste of fresh cut pinnaple, orange juice and light grapefruit pith. A bite dank with notes of floral a subtle hints of pale malts. Medium body with a slight bitter dry finish.

First glance this is a beautiful hazy beer with next to no seidment. Poured with minimal head. Smell of tangerine and pineapple with subtle dankiness. Taste was wow. Incredibly balanced juice bomb with perfect bitterness. Feel was very soft with a crisp finish. The slight dry bitterness on the backend left you longing for more.

Looks almost like a glass of pineapple juice on the pour. Intense fruit smells of mango and pineapple. That is out of this world juicy with a dry finish that makes you want more. This was everything I hoped my first monkish beer would be!!

Sweet honey peach fruit pineapple taste. Super fruity sweet. (I can't smell today.) Hazy and yellow/cloudy/straw. Low carbonation, super pillowy. Lovely, soft mouthfeel.

Really hazy peach color with off-white head. Aroma is fruity with pineapple and peach notes, also some dank hops. Taste is sweet and fruity at first, some light nutty malt character, slightly astringent citrus, light bitterness on the finish. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Overall it's a really good DIPA with great hop flavors.

Canned 10/21/16. Consumed 11/21/16.

A: Beer pours a thick straw gold color with about a finger of soft white head that very quickly fades to a thin ring of tiny bubbles. In the glass, this thing is full on hazy. Not that semi-translucent, some-light-coming-through kinda haze... I'm talking milky, turbid, pineapple juice in a glass. Murky as hell.

S: Tons of grapefruit and overripe peach up front. It's juicy as hell, not astringent at all. Little bit of lime, pineapple, passionfruit, maybe some more exotic fruits like guava, lychee. Beneath the intense bouquet of fruity goodness, there's a delicate earthy character, something grassy, herbal, but not particularly bitter or pithy.

T: Holy crap, that is delicious. This might be the most balanced NE-style DIPA I've had, perfectly straddling the line between the east coast juice bomb and the pithy, bitter west coast take on the style. Up front, I get loads of fresh peach, grapefruit, and passionfruit with some sweet lime juice squeezed on top. It's intensely explosive on the flavor, almost overwhelming in how fruity it is. It's not overly sweet or candy-like; more like ultra fresh, farmer's market fruit juice. I also get a bit of that vanilla-creamiscle note I sometimes pick up from Galaxy. Underlying all that is a very light white bready malt--almost like the white fluffy inside of French bread--just enough to carry the beer along and deliver those hops. On the finish, this awesome pithy grapefruit note emerges and just dries the juicy sweetness right out, perfectly balancing the overall taste and leaving you ready for another sip, despite the overwhelming assault of flavor.

M: Ultra creamy and thick, truly juice-like. This is one of the fullest mouthfeels I've had on a DIPA. Comparable to some of the Tree House DIPAs, but full in a different way--it has more weight, less effervescence, and more oily slickness. Carbonation is there, but very muted--light and very soft. Oh, and that 8.1% is completely hidden.

O: This is one of the best Monkish beers I've had so far and a wonderful showcase of what they can do with three of my favorite hops. The Galaxy and Citra are really the stars of the show here, offering a tremendous assortment of tropical and citrus fruit that perfectly complement each other. There's an awesome balance of juicy sweetness and pithy bitterness that--along with some dryness from the Nelson maybe?--makes this supremely drinkable. The flavor profile actually reminds me a TON of One from Sand City, but Foggier has a slightly thicker and slicker feel. The fact that this beer is this explosive on the nose/flavor at 1 month in makes me seriously question how good beer can be...

This is a really solid IPA. Had an entire can to myself. Was great through and through. Very hazy in color and thick on the mouthfeel. One of my favorites from Monkish.

Beer just don't look as good as this bad boy. Pours like a light orange juice with 1 finger head and nice lacing. Taste is pure orange/mango with minimal bitterness and great mouthfeel. As thick of an IPA as you could ask for. One of the better dipa's I've had this year

This is about as close to perfection as it can get. Pours a hazy yellow light orange with anew amazing danky funky aroma. Taste has an amazing dank burst with a great citrus and funky hop balance. Outstanding mouthfeel. Overall an amazing beer that surpasses very high expectations. Definitely holds up to any IPAs from not only NE but around the world.

Holy moly this is a great beer. Foggy window was amazing and this is just another step up! The look is cloudy as cloudy can be. Smell is super dry hopped. Taste is super balanced with strong Hop character. Such a great beer.
