On tap at Vermont Tap House, Williston, VT. The appearance was a burnt orange color with a bar pour’s kind slim white head. Somewhat messy lacing running here and there. The smell takes on the normal qualities of a citrus/cascade hopped AIPA, grassy/citrus/grapefruit and then they (Foolproof) aged this on some raspberries????, Uh...yeah, guys, good job, woohoo! I dig it. So some sour/tartness comes out from the raspberries (mmmm...smells authentic). The taste pretty much copies the aroma - bitter to sweet to the dry grassy and then the tart/sour raspberry thing going on. Raspberries do show a light presence in the aftertaste along with the sweetness of the citrus. Subtle dry grassy/raspberry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionable quality about it. Carbonation feels good/low. Nice bitterness as an AIPA hitting my tongue. Overall, I’d say Foolproof did this one well. I’d have again.

A: Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves some good lacing

S: Some fruity hops up front along with light raspberry and some moderately sweet maltiness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the fruity hops and a light raspberry undertone. Very light bitterness is overtaken by a moderate sweetness from the malt. Finishes with a light lingering fruitiness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Almost hits a spritzer level

O: A decent IPA that is very easy to drink but doesn't really deliver that full raspberry flavor to kick it up a notch. An interesting fruity PA/IPA hybrid

A- Can into my glass with a clear medium golden copper body and a beyond massive head. The cap makes it up to about four fingers high with great retention and a thick frothy texture.

S- Well, think SNPA with the classic Cascade hop aroma with dominance of floral and citrus tones. Beyond that are hints of sweet freshly mashed pale malts and yeast bread.

T- Full flavored. The grains do not hold themselves back mostly donating a cereal grain and mid-mash wort sweetness without much caramelization or beyond pale tones. The hops play well with this and the spicy Sam Adams yeast tones bringing citrus, floral and herbal notes to the table. Even a touch buttery.

MF- Fluffy and creamy medium body with moderately high carbonation. A clean citrus bitterness rounds it all out.

At this point I truly believe that hops are best off showcased in a mostly clean brew. Sam Adams delivers an underrated full flavored brew but in this case it undermines the greatness of the Cascade hops and you find yourself shifting between the yeast and malt base and the Cascade hops. Thankfully the grains are not egregiously caramelized and play mostly just fine with the hops.

Buckeyeboy picked this up in his Eastern ventures... Thanks Jeremy... Pours pretty much like a standard IPA, but the nose has a nice enough raspberry aroma, but the flavor is sorta a muddy/bitter jammy mess. Only okay at the most average standards.

Can from Jeremy. Hazy golden body, soft white head. Fruity aroma, berries follow through to taste, dry on the finish. Doesn't come across as a double, too fruity.

I am always excited to see a new product from Foolproof, but unfortunately I won't be returning to this one. The look and mouthfeel were pleasant and within range of a fruitfilled offering. If I were to smell this blindfolded, I would have had a hard time finding a raspberry presence. The taste reeled with a predominant dish soap flavor and left a sharp bitterness for the aftertaste.
