The new IIPA from Foolproof. Here we go.

22oz into tulip.

Aggressive head, good clarity on an amber body. Sticky, ivory lacing as the head settles. Good staying power, good visual appeal.

Grapefruit, simcoe stank (not sure of the hop bill, but it has that octane/pine resin quality) and more bright citrus.

Very very very bitter! Wow. A tongue - buckler. Grapefruit and pine sap, pretty dry on the finish. Good mouthfeel, crisp, drinks easier than a 9.5% IIPA should.

I like this beer. Wow, is it hoppy! I feel like that's the comment in every DIPA review, but this beer has a shit ton of bops. It tastes like a slightly drier 90-minute with way more hops.

A good effort from foolproof- now put it in tall boys and we'll talk.

There is something off in the smell on this one. Maybe malty charcoal, if that makes sense.
Slightly cloudy amber with medium head. Head fades rather soon.
Taste is a little to malty for my liking, but nothing bad. As with some double IPA's you can sense the alcohol in this one.
Poured to a pint glass from a can without date (too lazy to get up an look at the box).

A- pours clear and golden color with a small fizzy white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top no lacing left behind

S- very intriguing nose, lots of fruity esters with some pear, orange peel, candied citrus fruit, some sweet sugary malt. Picking up some underlying hop aroma, flowery and citrusy. Also strangely picking up some lactose, dairy like sourness as well. Unique to say the least

T- the fruitiness follows the aroma with notes of fresh berries and stone fruit. Big malty backbone mid-palate, but it still underlies the fruity aspect of flavors. The bitterness is actually hidden until the finish, and some floral hops linger on the palate

M- medium body with low carbonation lead to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, just a hint of alcohol warmth at the end

O- this tastes unlike any IIPA I've tried, but I dig it. Good fruity notes with enough hops to keep it bitter

A thanks to the captain of the canship, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, light malts. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, tropical fruits, hints of pine, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium/full in the mouth and overall, while not the hop bomb expected from this style, it is a smooth and enjoyable beer.
